pumkinut Wrote:How did you create the thumbdrive XBMC? If you used the BDW (Bootable Disk Wizard), you should have been prompted as to how much space to make available for persistence. The persistence part of this is what allows you to save configuration information across reboots, as it writes the information to the thumbdrive. Without persistence all config changes are just written to RAM, which is then lost across a power cycle. This is most likely why you have to redownload everything each time.
The BDW is available in the Add Ons section of XBMC from Dharma b1 on, IIRC. You should be able to burn the ISO to CD, boot from that, and then create a thumbdrive install with persistence.
I created my XBMCLive using LinuxLive with 400MB of persistence memory, however I am still not able to gert this to work. I have tried installing from XBMCLive Persistence, and from XBMCLive SafeMode, but every time I reboot I have to reinstall.
