set RAMSIZE 0x01900000
set MTYPE 6666
set KERNEL "zImage" (zImage of linwizard)
#set initrd initrd.gz
set initrd "initrd-android" (initrd of android )
set CMDLINE "rootdelay=1 root=/dev/ram0 ramdisk_size=20504 init=/linuxrc rw quiet"
bootlinux

This is what I'm using. It boots the kernel, then android says that it can't write to FS. I think the problem now is on android initrd because if I use the one that comes with Linwizard, it works.

Can anyone please post a video of this for those of us who are unable to get it running on our devices. I just want to see how it operates on a Touch.

Guys - top work as usual. I'm going to carry a story on this. Managed to get it working on the Touch Dual thanks to the previous post, although I did have to do a few reboots and I doubt I have the correct settings in default.txt.

Here's some YouTube videos I've just done...

I'm using these settings in default.txt and it's working every third or fourth attempt currently..

set RAMSIZE 0x07800000
set MTYPE 1667
set KERNEL zImage
#set initrd initrd.gz
set initrd initrd-android
set cmdline "rw quiet"
boot

What are the settings you are using for Wizard?
Can you post the zImage you are using?
