And he mentioned that petitboot would be coming. Well, it’s here as promised, as well as updated tools to assist in dual booting Gentoo Linux and GameOS from the VFLASH region. Please note that this is designed for advanced users and/or developers–in other words, very technical.Check out after the break–at the very bottom–for complete instructions on how to compile petitboot. Also, a hypervisor custom firmware with the capability to dual-boot GameOS and petitboot (for Linux) is coming.
