0.0 - Preamble

This is a much needed update to *romwell and Sparkle.

I have heavily modified this *romwell to make it as easy as possible to use.  There is 
better feedback to let the user know exactly what is happening without overloading the user
with too much detail.

This will be included as standard in the next version of Gentoox.

0.1 - Features

+ USB hang bug fix.
+ Integration with Sparkle.
+ Video encoding changed for Conexant (Richer colours).
+ Completely changed verbosity and boot messages.


1.0 - Installation

+ Flash Cromwell.bin to your modchip/TSOP.  It's a 256k image, so BE CAREFUL.  You may need to
  quadruple/double it up.

+ Copy Xromwell.xbe to E:\gentooxx.xbe (/mnt/fatx/e/gentooxx.xbe), overwriting an existing
  file if necessary.

+ Copy 'sprkrd.gz' to E:\sprkrd.gz (/mnt/fatx/e/sprkrd.gz)

+ Copy 'sparkle' to E:\sparkle (/mnt/fatx/e/sparkle)

+ Copy 'linuxboot.cfg' to E:\linuxboot.cfg (/mnt/fatx/e/linuxboot.cfg).

Obviously, check that linuxboot.cfg is correct for your configuration before rebooting!
If you don't want to mess with linuxboot.cfg by hand, run magic and let xbvset do it for


2.0 - Notes

As always, this should be considered "untested" work.  There may be bad bugs which I
havent caught.

Sorry if this all seems somewhat disjointed, I've been working on this update since I came
back from work at 10pm (after working 4 hours).  And it's now 4:42am.
