As to the USB issue, did you try the workaround on the Wiki? There's a bit of weirdness with USB host.

http://hackspire.unsads.com/wiki/index.php/Linux#USB

Well, yesterday before i tried to use the keyboard or the pendrive I've read all the information of that page of your link. The only thing that I don't understand is: when i try to use the pendrive i really should connect the nspire to a computer before use the bootloader? Because I never tried that...
I'm Portuguese, sorry bad English

No. You should connect the pendrive before using the bootloader.
Connecting to the computer would be the exact opposite.

Okay so I have my bootloader, zImage, and my USB stick. Here are the functions I use:

kernel linux/zImage.tns
root=/dev/sdaX !!!
rootdelay=10 !!!
cmdline root=/dev/ram
boot

The exclamation marks aren't what I type, but it says those instructions are unknown. Also, idk what initrd is, and do I need it? Halp!
I untarred xconfig_20130215_1915.tar.bz2 into the stick I am using, and it is low power.
When I boot, it just hangs after long blocks of text fly up the screen.
I'm Linux savvy, not manual bootloader savvy, or Nspire savvy for that matter.
Keep trying.

"rootdelay=10" should go after "root=/dev/ram" on the same line, it's part of the command line property, which is why it isn't recognized by the bootloader.
I support this kind of hacking: making things do things that those things weren't originally meant to do.

So like root=/dev/ram rootdelay=10?
Oh and, uh, what exactly are my functions dong, in a newb language?

Yeah it just keeps hanging...

Yes that is correct

What do you mean by functions, is this in the bootloader or the OS?

Yeah it just keeps hanging...

Try plugging in the USB before starting the bootloader, unplug it after you see the word "boot" in the bootloader (or the bootloader disappears...) and then plug it back in after Linux says something like "waiting 10 seconds..." See if it says anything about "[sda]"

I did that, and my father has been helping me add some functionality. The rootfs images provided by voginator are broken links. So I'm getting that stuff myself.
I meant the bootloader. It detects usb devices fine, I just hadn't formatted it to ext4...
Keep trying.

"Keto" (Ndless 3.1)
"Luna" (AMS 3.10, HW4)
"Aurora" (2.55MP)

Sorry for not helping out. What about questions that aren't noobish, like requests?
Keep trying.

Quick question--
is there a GUI built in to any of this? and if not is it possible?
