Moboot and how it talks to a kernel


With moboot (installed if you install CM7 on your TouchPad), upon booting your TP, it searches /boot for uImages to display. By placing a uImage for a kernel in there with the name format uImage.NAME, moboot will display the uImage’s name and allow you to boot from it. The default ARM kernel for Ubuntu will not boot on the TouchPad, but thanks to CyanogenMod, we can use some of the kernel patches to make it boot.
