Usage

Samsung K9F8G08U0M 1 GB NAND Flash

  • Used for storage of bootloader, kernel, boot flash graphics, Linux OS etc..

Hynix H27UBG8T2ATR 4 GB NAND Flash (Long Term Storage)

  • Used for persistent storage, device is /dev/sda - possible to override with an external USB drive

Microchip PIC24FJ64GA004-I/PT 16-bit microcontroller

  • Used to handle IR input/output for remotes/IR blasters and possible interface with wireless keyboard

Update Procedure

Place new update labeled "update.zip" on a USB drive, with a single partition (ie, 1st partition on a USB disk, so say "/dev/sdc1")

Insert into Revue in the Right most USB port (if looking at the back, closest to the power jack)

Boot into recovery mode: (confirm?)

Hold the Sync button while plugging in the Revue, keep it held, at the same time hold Menu+L on the keyboard.

Box will reboot, continue to hold Sync button, then hold Alt+L (or mash, your choice), and it should then enter recovery mode.

You can then update the box, with a newer update. Downgrading fails however due to a date check.
