at 9:11 pm. Filed under Complex Hacks, Funny Hacks


Cibomahto member mahto modified the Chumby web browser to a full-screen kiosk for his 8″ Insignia Infocast branded machine. You can probably make it to work with the other Chumbys too without learning flash or compiling anything.


The steps required to make it working are :

– At first grab the file here,

– unzip the contents into a USB stick or SD card,

– place the card in your Insignia, and reboot.

– you can change the URL that it loads by modifying the file debugchumby
