Leapster Explorer: Common Commands
Here are some changes to the LX's default setup that will make your life more easy.
This will prevent the auto shutoff from kicking in, but you also lose a lot of normal LeapFrog specific functionality.
killall AppManager app CartManager
Start Different Application
This will allow you to start a different application other than the default LeapFrog application:
echo /path/to/your/app > /flags/main_app
Caution /LF/Bulk isn't guaranteed to be mounted when the start up script is run. If your app isn't found, rcS will remove /flags/main_app to restore the default on the next boot.
This turns on telnet and ftp by default, and switches to a static IP address.
If you still want to have the automatic private ip:
And if you want a speedy boot (this eliminates a 6 second wait timer):
Removing USB-boot-mode auto-shutdown
When USB booting, the script /usr/bin/recovery runs. On line 8 of that script is an instruction to do a forced shutdown after 600 seconds.
To remove that annoyance, simply comment-out that line:
#( sleep 600; poweroff -f ) &
To remove the 2nd boot logo, comment out line 76 of /etc/init.d/rcS:
#imager /dev/layer0 /var/screens/LEGAL.png
To remove the startup sound, comment out line 91 of /etc/init.d/rcS:
#oss -w /var/sounds/startup.wav & # & tim end "sounds/startup.wav" &
New Kernel Copy
This may brick your Explorer and make it require a usb boot so only do this if your brave.
nandscrub -e /dev/mtd2 nandscrub /dev/mtd2 nandwrite /dev/mtd2 /usr/kernel.cbf
mtd2 is where the kernel is stored
