Re: Any way to try and re-flash a dead Pi?

I think the GPU contains the boot code you're looking for.
However, I do not think this can be reflashed/altered.

No ideas on what to try next... maybe try flashing a bone stock image to an SD card and trying that?

I flashed the latest image today and it is working for me.

Have you checked the SHASUM of the image?

Re: Windows & OS X on Raspberry Pi

Nope. Ubuntu chose to only support newer arm architectures. This is because they would have to recompile all their packages and host them just to support the RPi. That said, Ubuntu is based on debian and debian is the commonly used distro on the RPi. The stock Raspbian image is comparable to the Lub...

Re: Logitech K400 or Riitek RT-MWK01?

I use the K400. Everything works fine for me, even the multi touch. That said some people have reported problems with the 3.2 kernel and berryboot. A big advantage is that so many RPi users have this keyboard, so any issues are bound to be fixed quickly. I would recommend this keyboard. Don't know t...

Re: Sudo for the desktop

you could open a terminal and type
sudo nautilus (or w/e file manager you use)
LXDE as installed does not ask for root permission when you're trying to do something that requires root like some other distro's.

Re: Sort of AirPlay OS?

I don't think xmbc supports airplay mirroring like an apple TV does.
It will only send a stream of a video to xbmc, not a mirror of your full screen.
Could be wrong though,

Re: Disappointed with slow performance of Raspberry Pi

overclock does not void your warrent, only overVOLT. You should be able to get somewhere near 850 mhz (700 is stock), without overvolting. Check the wiki for more info. However, even with overvolting and overclocking to 1000 mhz webbrowsing is still a pain if you're used to fast modern hardware. Thi...

Re: How to change from Squeeze to Wheezy?

Your compiled packages are incompatible with Raspbian. However raspbian comes with OMXplayer so that saves you some compiling. My personal advice would be to update ASAP. Raspbian works much faster and with more hardware and as it has pretty much replaced Squeeze you will have to move at some point ...

Re: raspbian version

They do, but only the firmware available in the repositories you're using. This depends on when the maintainers put it in there. Generally they seem to wait a couple of weeks to get some testing done. If you want the very latest firmware you could run RPi-update or use a new rep with the latest firm...

Re: raspbian version

Rpi-update gets the very latest firmware from github.
This is somewhat untested and if your firmware works well, one of the few reasons to use it is to help testing.

Re: Help test the next Debian image (wheezy)

I think the turning down is something new Dom built into the latest firmware. Arch tends to be more bleeding edge, so most likely gets this new firmware with -Syu. Debian takes a safer route and takes more time to test new firmware before making it available from apt-get. If you run rpi-update on yo...

I am using your (Dom's) config settings as well and running the standard Wheezy image (not the raspbian one).
WIth those settings and booting form a USB HDD my browsing speed is already reasonably close to yours.
