I just dd'ed 10888 onto a SD card (which took 4 hours). I guess I should do it differently, right? Can anyone provide me with some tips for that?
Also my keyboard doesn't work. So I can't do anything with it. Just a standard apple keyboard, should work I guess ...
Regarding the dd time, that doesn't sound quite right - I've just applied the 10870 image and it took less than 10 minutes. From what I've heard, 10870 is a fairly stable version. Once I've applied that to my SD card I've downloaded and applied updated firmware and kernel from newer releases (10918 seems quite stable).
It's fairly straight-forward - you can just copy the relevant files onto the boot partition of the SD card - you should be able to see this in Windows (start.elf, bootcode.bin, bootloader.bin, kernel.img (renamed from KERNEL) & SYSTEM).
