Hi!

I found a workaround on an other forum:

Quote:
1) Install both Gemini and Pli Emerald on USB
2) Boot with flash image
3) replace Gemini's /bin/busybox with Pli's (compiled with crond)
4) reboot with USB's Gemini modified
5) create crond command (symlink):
ln -s /bin/busybox /sbin/crond
6) edit /etc/init.d/rcS (to start cron daemon at boot, add before enigma loop)
add line: [ -e /sbin/crond ] && /sbin/crond &
7) create crontab command (symlink):
ln -s /bin/busybox /bin/crontab
8) create dir: /var/spool , /var/spool/cron , /var/spool/cron/crontabs
9) create cronjob with : crontab -e
add line: 0 5 * * * /var/script/myscript.sh >/tmp/myscript.log 2>&1
(to run "myscript" everyday, 0 minute after 5 o'clock)

Reboot and check:
-> crond must be running (ps -aef | grep crond)
-> logfile /tmp/myscript.log has date of last run (ls -l /tmp/aes_update.log)
I hope it really works !

Last edit because i think it's only possible on a 70xx model. :(

Well... I found minicron!

Test if it works with your 500s!
