Bootlace is an iPhone application which allows configuration of compatible openiboots to modify their behaviour. This includes altering permanent settings such as the default OS that is booted on startup, the timeout before booting and disabling the automatic boot timer. The other major feature is it allows what we call 'one-shot boots' to take place. This means tapping Android or Console and having the device reboot directly into the selected option without modifying the default settings of openiboot.
Requirements

Currently Bootlace requires a compatible openiboot until changes are merged into planetbeing's master. See the Compatibility section for more information.

Other requirements include that iPhone OS must be 3.0 or higher.

Supported openiboots are:
Neonkoala's

* iPhone 3G: http://files.neonkoa...-openiboot.img3
* iPhone 2G: http://files.neonkoa...-openiboot.img3
* iPod Touch 1G: http://files.neonkoa...-openiboot.img3
Note: I will try to keep my repo as up to date as possible with planetbeing's patches, just check the dates and the commits on github. (Updated 18/05/10)
Installation

1. Install a compatible openiboot as listed above. See Openiboot Installation for help.

2. Add this repository to Cydia:

http://repo.neonkoala.co.uk/

3. Install the package Bootlace.

4. If you are asked to generate the settings then do so. This is normal on first use.

Note: I would encourage making a NOR backup as with most things involving openiboot.
Usage

File:Bootlace_1.0_Main.png

The first screen you are presented with is the 'one-shot boot' screen. Tappping one of these will reboot your device directly into the selected OS.

File:Bootlace_1.0_Settings.png

The settings screen allows you to configure more permanent features of how openiboot functions each time it boots.

Finally, the advanced screen allows you to manually backup, restore and reset your openiboot settings. Remember to use this with caution! Backups are automatically made everytime the program is run if one is not already present and can be found at /var/mobile/NVRAM.plist.backup.
Compatibility

A compatible openiboot supports the following features:

* Default OS selection - Using NVRAM value opib-default-os. Values are: 0 - iPhone OS, 1 - Android OS, 2 - Console.
* Menu timeout - Using NVRAM value opib-menu-timeout (Value is in milliseconds for compatibility). 0 Disables auto-boot.
* One-shot booting - Using NVRAM value opib-temp-os Values are the same as default OS.

Bootlace will not run unless it detects a compatible openiboot. Compatibility is checked with the NVRAM value for opib-version. This is set on installation and removed on uninstallation.

Versioning is as follows:

0.1.1 - Full support.

0.1 - Supported but missing one-shot booting.
