Cool...

If nothing else, it makes test / debug of OS json & scripts easy...
i.e. boot safemode, edit os files, 'exit' rescueshell to noobs, test install - repeat as needed

wow.

Re: PINN - An enhanced version of NOOBS.

huh... Your Arch OS support looks a lot like this :) I'm curious - README_PINN says Arch linux distros use extended file attributes that are not stored in a standard TAR archive. Therefore they use BSDTAR to create their distro archives which are not compatible with PINN. PINN adds BSDTAR support to...

Any chance you could set up some kind of 'latest' redirect or link as the final stage of a (successful) nightly build? ie http://nightly.raspberrypi.org/nightlyimages-v2/latest/

The Arch files the current NOOBS is using are oldish. Attached is an easy-to-use alternative that always installs the 'latest' Arch for pi kits. Grab a copy of NOOBS lite , expand it, drop the files on your card. Then expand the attached zip and drop 'os' onto the card. When you boot the pi you'll h...

Ah, a bit clearer. As I said, I'm not familiar with that board/codec/driver tuple... You mentioned 12MHz - the board is clock master? (i.e. Is the board twiddling bclk to fetch bits, or is the pi twiddling bclk to push bits?) You need to identify your clock source for debuggiung .Does the card drive...
