07/07/09 – Thanks to all the hard work by Sarcastic.mannequin we now have tv-out working in Linux on the IP1000. We hope to release the program soon. I am working on integrating this into coreboot so we will have tv-out at boot, that is the ultimate goal. This should also work fine on the RM4100 but at this point in time it has not been tested. Stay tuned for updates, there is more good news to come.
03/27/09 - Wiki has been updated to the latest version as well a new great looking skin. Unfortunately due to spam problems with phpBB, the decision was made for a new forum. AWC is integrated into the Wiki and very simple to use. The new forum will be repopulated with the content from the old forum as quickly as possible, so please be patient. On the other hand, some recent discoveries about the TV-OUT on the RM4100 / IP1000 have emerged and I am working with a few friends to get the TV-OUT working in coreboot.
06/22/08 - So-dimm socket on the Thomson IP1000 is now working. The new pre-built images are available here.
06/03/08 - First initial coreboot testing of the the so-dimm socket on the Thomson IP1000. Testing with max so-dimm at 512MB + the onboard 64MB for a total of 576MB!
05/17/08 - coreboot bios for the Thomson IP1000 is now released and ready for beta testing. TV-out is the only thing still not working, it is a work in progress. Beta testers wanted and feedback is welcome. Post your feedback in the forum.
05/15/08 - Fixed rebooting issue, coreboot on the RM4100 now is able to reboot. New pre-built images are available here. Also, the discovery that the IP1000 actually has a Low Voltage Intel Pentium III processor running at 933MHz with a 512k L2 cache and 133MHz front side bus.
05/14/08 - Discovery that the IP1000 only has 64MB of onboard memory not 128MB. Which lead to the first successful boot of coreboot on the IP1000.
05/08/08 - Thanks to the discovery from clockworx you can access the bios on the AP1200 by using a USB keyboard and pressing F4 immediately after power on.
04/23/08 - It is official! The new website and domain are complete. Everyone please update your links and bookmarks, the old site will be going down in a month or so.
03/15/08 - coreboot bios for the RCA RM4100 is now released and ready for beta testing. TV-out is the only thing still not working, it is a work in progress. Beta testers wanted and feedback is welcome. Post your feedback in the forum.
