    Default Transfer xapconfig onto Joggler

    Just getting into this so it's all very new.

    I've messed around with the xapconfig on my PC to change the layout, opened it up in firefox and it works OK. How do I now get the xapconfig.xml onto the joggler to try it on there.

    I've got telnet access but don't have a clue how to use it, all I've done so far is copy and paste code, don't know how to browse and change files.

    Did you have a read through the instructions (see sticky at top of this forum)

    There are now two different sets - the original ones included with the application and also the ones on the HAH Livebox site.

    Have you got the rest of the xAPFlash files onto the Joggler ? - you need the complete set there not just the config file. By far the easiest way now is to use Bretts installer from those HAH instructions

    Default xAP Flash DIY post

    Kevin,

    With your permission looking to do a DIY post relating to installation and set up of your application on the Joggler on the Joggler Forum.

    I've done the initial installation on one of the Jogglers as a test...but am going to start all over again such that I can document it a bit more for the DIY.

    It'll be many pictures with a step by step if its OK with you?

    The forum is here:

    Pete,

    The reason I have stayed away from the general Joggler general market is support. Not only with the general xAPFlash app but also with xAP itself as users on that forum will be unfamiliar with it. I forsee a lot of 'how do I control my TV | Lights | Music | Dishwasher | Kids questions . One approach that would minimise this is focussing on users who already use some home automation software that supports xAP or a specific application area , e.g. perhaps weather with Cumulus.

    If you are prepared to assist such users on the Joggler forum , then I would say go for it....... and the work that Brett has done with his Wiki entry has been most useful , much more straightforward than my original instructions.

    Thanks Kevin.

    I don't mind supporting the Joggler users and would start with something simple "baby steps" to home automation concurrent with xAP.

    I've requested that it would be a nice add to the newest most current version of the Joggler PnP II build.

    Recently with the addition of XP and ICS to the Joggler base has revived the Jogglers a bit.

    I was thinking of doing something similiar over on the Homeseer /Cocoontech Forums maybe with both the Joggler and Chumby providing an xAP introduction to HA with a couple of reasonably priced and easy to get touchscreen devices.

    These little simple DIY's would be kind of an introduction into the world of xAP using some easy to get low cost touch screen devices (800Mhz Arm in the Chumby and 1.2Mhz Atom in the Joggler).
