List of modifications

/usr/bin/avos

We modify /usr/bin/avos in the following way:

  • Modified AOS_compare_SIGx_checksum() to allow any .aos file to be installed, whether it is validly signed or not.
  • Modified verify_cramfs() to allow any .cramfs.secure file to be mounted, whether it is validly signed or not.
  • Modified AOS_callback_compare_versions() to allow installing any .aos file, regardless of the version number (allow downgrading).
  • Changed the update site from http://update.archos.com/update_archos5-7_daos.xml to http://archos.g3nius.org/updates/digest.xml
    • Modified the validation routine to make sure any signature on the digest.xml file is considered valid.
