That's all folks!
:( :cry: I'M OFFICIALLY CALLING TIME ON PnP III DEVELOPMENT :( :cry:
Regular visitors will probably have noticed a lack of updates to PnP III from April 2014 onwards. Since then, the BBC iPlayer app, Accuweather (now resurrected!) and Google Maps have all ceased working and I simply don't have the skills to get them going again (although 'The Lounge' links can quite easily be updated if anyone has the urge to play with the jogContent.xml file). I've also moved to Android devices and Roku/NowTV boxes for most of the things I previously 'Jogglered' for. You won't be surprised to know that there isn't a 'stock'/unhacked phone, tablet or set top box in the house! :D That said, we're still running 4 Jogglers and the OpenFrame2 in this house, but predominantly run the amazing sqpOS on them. Of course, I have been tinkering with sqpOS - see the sqpOS v3 thread for my most recent tinker streamlining Logitech Media Server installation! ;)

I need to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone who actually 'created' PnP III (and PnP Mk II before it) - I just packaged it for the end-user! Obviously big contributors include roobarb, buzz, spoyser, pete, hawsey, gegs, dwl99, jkn, jon, castalla, jp_hero and, of course, gforums (and pretty much everyone on the top 50 forum posters). To be honest though, everyone on the forum has contributed in some way with little fixes, tweaks, requests, questions (mainly from ilovemyjoggler :lol: ) and by using it in such huge numbers.

It has been an amazing learning experience which started with PMJ (remember that?) before moving to Jogtools and then to the original gforums PnP and beyond. Without it I wouldn't have been able to do anything I've subsequently done on Android, NAS drives or Roku/NowTV boxes. I've also found that sleep is so overrated/unnecessary!

THANK YOU for all your support with this incredible project - I leave you (in terms of PnP III development) with final version 3.50!

What is PnP III?
Basically, it's a quick and easy way to greatly enhance the functionality and usefulness of your Joggler whilst retaining the ease of use of the original operating system!
PnP III works with pre and post May 2012 update Jogglers. It builds upon the wonderful work of gforums original PnP and my own PnP Mk II and aims to increase the functionality and usefulness of these great little gadgets with relative ease. PnP Mk II began as a little project to enable me to keep my family of Jogglers configured with what I wanted. After a couple of requests from users of this forum, the project took on a life of it's own! It is really just a collection of the works of other far cleverer folk than I. There weren't any changes or updates after April 2014, but a final release (v3.50) has been created to reflect the fact that some apps stopped working (due to external support beign removed) or needed fixing.

Current version
The final version of PnP III (v3.50 - April 2015) can be downloaded from here. (Edit 11th Feb 2017 - Try https://mega.nz/#!lhZWUIQC!po8KGloXBLV4 ... FFsP3xU2W0 )
Read the detailed changelog here.

Screenshots - mostly June 2013
Note: PnP III applied after roobarb's clean OpenPeak reflash. Most games are not on the original (blue) o2 software. Dilbert now removed from PnP III as no longer supported/functional. BBC iPlayer app and Google Maps app also removed as no longer supported/functional

Instructions
NOTE: ALL SETTINGS WILL BE LOST.
It goes without saying that I take no responsibility if anything untoward should happen to your Joggler, although fortunately there are plenty of us here who are willing to help in the unlikely event that it does!

Stage 1 - make sure the Joggler is running the latest operating system.
NOTE: ALL SETTINGS WILL BE LOST
Use Roobarb's re-worked OpenPeak image and reflash tool. Find it at Roobarb's birdslikewires site. The advantage of this is a cleaner image and the ability to install automatically without telnet.

Stage 2 - Install PnP III
NOTE: ALL SETTINGS WILL BE LOST
Works with Jogglers reflashed with Roobarb's cleaner post-update OpenPeak OS v30300 (recommended) or Jogglers running the original o2 OS

1) Make sure your Joggler is 'clean'.
Use the reflasher from birdslikewires.co.uk to achieve this with your preferred version.
2) Unzip the downloaded archive and copy all the files to the root a FAT32 formatted USB stick .
Make sure any hidden files are copied.
Make sure there is no 'remove_for_new_install' file on the root USB stick
3) With the Joggler turned off, plug the USB stick into your clean Joggler, switch it on and leave it to do its thing!
This method does not require network or internet connection.
This can take 10-20 minutes depending on the USB stick.
It may 'reboot' a few times but will stay on the 'OpenPeak' or 'o2' boot screen, looking for all the world as if nothing is happening. Flashing USB sticks however tell otherwise.
4) The Joggler will eventually reboot into the OS with all the new apps and icons
5) You will need to remove the 'remove_for_new_install' file from the USB stick after use to use it again.

Once installation is complete:
SSH, SCP, Telnet enabled(username: joggler password: joggler)
Simple Webserver available via a browser at <YOUR_JOGGLER'S_IP_ADDRESS>
Logitech Media Server (LMS) available via a browser at <YOUR_JOGGLER'S_IP_ADDRESS:9000>

NOTE: IF YOUR JOGGLER IS TEMPERAMENTAL AND DOESN'T RESPOND WELL (I.E. FAILS) IF REBOOTED TOO OFTEN, USE THE 'MANUAL' METHOD INVOLVING TELNET BELOW:

1) Make sure your Joggler is clean (See roobarb's reflashing instructions - linked above).

2) Unzip the downloaded archive and copy all the files to a formatted USB stick .
Make sure any hidden files are copied.
Make sure there is no 'remove_for_new_install' file on the root USB stick
3) Make sure your joggler is connected to your network.
Although internet access is not required to install PnP III,
you need network access to be able to Telnet in!
4) Plug the PnP III USB stick into an updated Joggler (with it powered on).
5) Telnet into the Joggler via a computer. The username is root and there is no password.
(open <your Joggler's IP address>)
4) Type in:
cd /mnt/files <press Enter>
./pnp3op.sh <press Enter>
6) Loads of stuff will scroll up the Telnet window whilst the mods are installed.
7) The Joggler should eventually reboot into the OS with all the new apps and icons
8) If it is present, remove the 'remove_for_new_install' file from the USB stick after use.

Once installation is complete:
SSH, SCP (username: joggler password: joggler) will be enabled in addition to Telnet (username: root)
Simple Webserver available via a browser at <YOUR_JOGGLER'S_IP_ADDRESS>
Logitech Media Server available via a browser at <YOUR_JOGGLER'S_IP_ADDRESS:9000>

Add Accuweather locations via the Webserver
This update means that you can just type your Joggler's IP address into a web browser on the same network, select the option to 'Add Accuweather Locations' and follow the instructions! (Installed automatically on PnP v3.50d and later)

UPDATE ACCUWEATHER ON ANY PREVIOUS VERSION OF PnP III (pre-v3.50d)

Putty/Telnet method
Telnet/Putty in to the Joggler and copy and paste the following:

Code: Select all

cd /tmp
wget -O accuweatherfix.tar http://www.jogglerwiki.com/forum/download/file.php?id=819 
tar xvf accuweatherfix.tar
mv control.txt /media/gforums/webserver/control.cgi
mv accuweather.txt /media/gforums/webserver/cgi/accuweather.cgi
rm accuweatherfix.tar
If you need the starting weatherFile.txt in /media/app-cfg/common then you'll also need:

Code: Select all

cd /tmp
wget -O weatherFile.txt http://www.jogglerwiki.com/forum/download/file.php?id=821
mv weatherFile.txt /media/app-cfg/common
Alternative method via WinSCP
Download https://www.dropbox.com/s/25z0kawoxdtgr ... l.cgi?dl=0
Use WinSCP to copy it into /media/gforums/webserver
Check the permissions are rwxrwxrwx (Right click it and select 'Properties' to change them if necessary).
Download https://www.dropbox.com/s/quvxmvk9kbawc ... r.cgi?dl=0
Use WinSCP to copy it into /media/gforums/webserver.cgi
Check the permissions are rwxrwxrwx (Right click it and select 'Properties' to change them if necessary).
You might need /media/app-cfg/common/weatherFile.txt too if one doesn't exist already.

Thanks offbeatdave - Your PNP MKII breathed new life into my kitchen and bedroom jogglers! No updates for either one yet (Kent UK) but would be great to know that they can work in the same way if/when they do update.

Suggestion if I may?

Update 7th May 2012: Having a clear out of Logitech Media Server files (hopefully unnecessary ones) as this takes up loads of space!


The @server@ component might be an "option" to install ... I have Squeezecentre on a Synology NAS... and the Squeezebox you gave us works brilliantly with it...

I really don't need the server part... may be this might be the same for others? NO disrespect to "The Creator".. as we love this hard work...

This can be achieved easily in the forthcoming PnP III by opening up pnp3op.sh or pnp3o2.shx (depending on post or pre update) in the 'files' directory of the USB installer and #'ing out (or deleting) the lines under the #INSTALL LOGITECH MEDIA SERVER TO WEBSERVER section before installing.

Or two versions .pnp3-1 gamer. And pnp3-2 utils.
More work for your good self though ...
Happy Joggling

Thanks offbeatdave, as I already installed squeezeplay on the new sys. hope it won't conflict with the one in PnP III when it being released.

Hi, thanks for your reply on the other forum. i will wait for your updated PNp so i can install it on the updated joggler software. if you want to free space so bbc iplayer and youtube run better i would get rid of most of the games that the new software has and i would lose usa today and just have sky news. look forward to installing your software.

regards
Rob

My untouched O2 Joggler updated itself earlier today, what can I say other than it seems pretty poor even compared to the standard O2 software even the clock is poor. Will I be able to install the PnP III even though I haven't installed any other software before.

Thanks

It will be pretty easy but just be aware that at this early stage, some things may not work quite as expected!

My Kitchen PnPII updated this evening after it hung on a Youtube video and I had to reboot it. Amazing how an 'upgrade' can turn it into essentially just a clock for me!

It is what one would call a "Downgrade Upgrade " I think

Looking forward to giving it a try offbeatdave.

Playing around with old O2 OS I was able to get the radio stations all to play again; only now they sound like they are streaming at double speed; cartoon like.

I'm wondering if the flaky wireless on the OpenPeak update is causing my iPlayer and YouTube woes. Will have to investigate, although it may have to wait a day or two as this is in danger of taking over my evenings again! :shock:

It's good fun though and satisfying when I suss stuff out and learn something new! :D
