flying toaster

This activity is intended to do two things

  • Create USB sticks (such as Sugar on a Stick soas-2-blueberry.iso)
  • Create a CD or DVD disc from an .iso image if the necessary hardware is available

The goal is to allow any XO user or XO in book mode to select and create a bootable USB stick or disc.

This activity is not yet functional. Developers are needed.

A CD or DVD drive connected via USB is anticipated required to create those discs. Collaboration is encouraged as we get the project going. You can provide input here, as bug reports or as code. Inspiration for this project derives from the Freedom Toaster and other similar projects. An application is being prepared for the contributors program as described in this blog post.
