Am wondering how to replace the firmware on a Longshine Shinebook (manual, firmware, more stuff).

enter image description here

Assuming I modify the firmware files, how do I put the new version on the device? I'm guessing there is some standard method for triggering the update.

In the firmware package, the /etc/int.d/rcS startup script has these lines at the end:

#for fs upgrade
#/bin/sd_upgrade_fs.sh
/bin/sd_upgrade_fs.sh
#for factory test
#sh /bin/mfg_test.sh
#/bin/watchdog.sh&
#/lib/modules/usb_mod
#exec /usr/etc/nanoX.local

And in /bin/sd_upgrade_fs.sh you can see how the initial firmware is written to the device. By looking up "eb600e" and "eb600em" present in /files/. I found this old thread with some suggestions on how to trigger a firmware update process.
