I started this post by typing out the year 2006. It’s been 11 years since BencHToolz was at version 2 and made available to the public. Back then, there was no auto-update scripts, and the toolkit was just a set of hand-picked tools arranged with a menu system for cd functionality.
Those are days long gone. In the current year, not much has been done in terms of re-writing or updating the toolkit’s scripts. I’m taking a week off from work soon, and hope to work on getting this heap of scripts under control. I’d like to try and get a release ready for August/September, and provide both a bootable usb image alongside the normal release.
I personally use Easy2Boot, which allows me to dump in a bunch of ISO files and choose what I want to run from a simple grub2-based bootmenu. I plan on including it inside of the bootable USB image, complete with UEFI support. Not that all the tools I plan to include support UEFI, but at the least, if you need it, it’s there.
BootZilla will include a handful more tools for diagnosing and repairing malware infections. I’m planning on including tools for decrypting files that have been maliciously encrypted by some of the newer variants of TeslaCrypt and Locky.
More will be said about updates in the coming weeks (or so I hope)…
