Deploying a MeeGo Plasma Countour ISO Image to a Flashdrive

After you have downloaded the ISO image its a good idea to validate the image against transmission errors. An SHA1 checksum file should be available for every image. You can do this by comparing the hash on equality between image and related checksum file via following command:

   [email protected]# sha1sum <image file>

In case of an divergent output, please download the image one more time and check again. After that feel free to deploy the image to an not mounted USB flashdrive. In the following example we use the tool 'dd' for this:

   [email protected]# dd if=<image file> of=/dev/<USB flashdrive> bs=1M

Please note, the usage of this tool is potential dangerous! In case of an mistaken output device, all data on it will be unrecoverable lost.

To get the correct output device for the this tool, please follow the described steps below:

1. Remove all mobile flashdrives from your host system.
2. Call the command below and note the output.
   [email protected]# /proc/partitions
   major minor  #blocks  name
     8     0    3000000  sda
     8     1    2999998  sda1
3. Plug the Flashdrive for deploying into the host system.
4. Call the following command and note the output again.
   [email protected]# /proc/partitions
   major minor  #blocks  name
     8     0    30000000 sda
     8     1    29999998 sda1
     8     16    3872256 sdb
     8     17     594944 sdb1
5. In this example the correct dd parameter is sdb in the position of <USB flashdrive>.

Booting the Live Image on a WeTab

1. Plug the flashdrive to the WeTab.

2. Get the WeTab running.

3. Press the power (top left underside) + softtouch (top left upperside) button till reboot.
