I haven't seen any posts about this so I was wondering if it's feasible to update the version of PM in UBCD (assuming you have a newer version of PM, of course, which I do).

I've looked at the structure in both ISOs, and it would seem like you could update a handful of dirs, a handful of .img files, and swap in the large .SQFS file, but somehow I don't think it's that simple.

If someone's already figured this out either way, I'd love to hear about it.

In addition to the original tutorial, I made a script that was working correctly at the time: https://www.ultimatebootcd.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=14652

Although it is recommended to read at least the first few posts of the topic, the latest version of the script is attached at: https://www.ultimatebootcd.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=24927#p24927

Note however, that the script was valid for the versions of pmagic available at the time. Since the new versions are not exactly available for free (but they are still GPL), there has been no update to the script matching the newer versions.

This means that using the script (or the old tutorial for that matter) "as-is" is *not* recommended. The user must customize the script for it to work with current versions of pmagic.

Additionally, certain "multiboot" auxiliary GUI tools support newer versions of pmagic (use a web search engine), so it should be fairly simple to use them instead of using a customized script (or a customization of the old tutorial).

OK, thanks to both of you, I'll figure it out.

Yesterday, I resorted to approximating it by doing this, though it's just a cheat:

del /pmagic/boot
del /pmagic/pmodules/*.sqfs
copy updated PM ISO to /pmagic/pmodule
edit /ubcd/menus/syslinux/main.cfg to point to it
