================================================== ==
1) Prerequisites
During the installation there has to be CF card in the Dreambox (attention: insert or remove into Dreambox 7025 cardreader only when Dreambox is turned off), or an USB stick which is successfully detected (in case of problems try an USB Hub).

If Barry Allen on USB is used then put the CVS Image from OoZooN in Flash, because this image has the USB drivers permanently built into the kernel.

If neither CF card not USB Stick are attached then installation takes place on the Harddisk. Because the images then also run from there it will run permanently and it could be necessary that you disable Harddisk Standby in the images to allow running Barry Allen stable from Harddisk.

2) Installation
First boot from Flash and then copy the file enigma2-plugin-extensions-barryallen*.ipk to /tmp with ftp (TCP/IP must be working already).

If you have an image in Flash that offers a Blue Pannel Manual Addon Install, then you can use this functionality to install the ipk file.

If not, then install Barry Allen by entering the following commands in a Telnet session:
Source code

1
2
cd /
ipkg install /tmp/enigma2-plugin-extensions-barryallen*.ipk


Then restart enigma2 and the Barry Allen Plugin shoudl show up under Games / Plugins.

In the Images installed by Barry Allen you don't have to install the Barry Allen Plugin anymore.
The Barry Allen Plugin integrates himself into then automatically during the image extract.

And you can remove Barry Allen if you are booted from Flash:
Source code

1
ipkg remove enigma2-plugin-extensions-barryallen


3) Usage
There is now the enigma2 Plugin of Barry Allen included under Games / Plugins of the enigma2 menu, which offers the full functionality of Barry Allen.

For extracting of nfi images in Barry Allen copy the image files to /MB_Images (normally a link to /media/hdd/MB_Images created during Barry Allen installation)

If there are Problems with image extraction or other tasks with the enigma2 plugin try doing it in telnet:
Source code

1
2
cd /media/ba
ba.sh extract nameoftheimage


On the next reboot this new Image should be available in the bootmanager for choosing to boot it and then it can be customized and used as usual.

The Bootmanager now should remember the last booted image and hence recordings from Deepstandby should work now.

================================================== ==
Have Fun using Barry Allen on the Dreambox !!!!
