New p-boot released, new pre-built/updated kernels
New p-boot is released. It has the 60 FPS fix as mentioned previously.
It also has some usability improvements (it shows battery status in the
footer and information about where the p-boot was booted from and from where it
loaded the boot filesystem as these can mix and match quite a bit). It will also
report if the battery is being charged or not.
When the phone is off and you insert the charger, this will normally lead to
powering up the phone. It's not avoidable. p-boot will detect this situation
and force the display of the menu followed by a regular 10s poweroff timeout,
regardless of any default boot option setting. This makes it easy to connect a
turned off phone to a charger without booting the OS.
If you run my multi-boot SD card image, you can update it with the new p-boot
to get a reboot to eMMC feature, so that you don't have to remove the SD card to
boot to your normal eMMC OS, that came with the phone.
