    No, thanks, I’m ok with Geexbox. I was just glad be successful in pxe boot and shared my way in case others need it. Also i prefer to leave rootfs and initrd separated, cos seems to me that embed rootfs into initrd increase a lot the boot startup.
    Open initrd : xz -dc initrd | cpio -i
    Copy inside init from 3.1
    To recompress:
    find . | cpio –create –format=’newc’ | xz –check=crc32 -9 –format=’lzma’ > ../newinitrd
    Then merge casper-rw with all settings i need inside rootfs so are reset at every pxe-boot:
    Open rootfs: unsquashfs rootfs
    mount -o loop casper-rw /mnt
    copy /mnt/root/.kodi into unsquashed rootfs (seems it’s enought).
    Rebuild rootfs:
    mksquashfs squashfs-root/ newroot -b 256k -noappend -comp xz -Xbcj x86
    This part is accomplished … if you really want to help me 😉 create for me a nice casper-rw (with my settings obviously), definitely I’m getting crazy with dozen of tests on Kodi to obtain a correct kiosk-like movie collection desktop.
