Well, I tried a bit this morning but have failed so far.

With GNURoot Debian it comes up as Debian version 8.1 but I upgraded to 
8.7 using the instructions near the bottom of this page:

The 2.6.0 ppcarm itself fails to run with: Illegal instruction

I also posted a new zip (not yet on web page) and tried that: 

The 3.0.2 ppcarm itself fails with: Segmentation fault

Thanks in advance for *any* suggestions.  As soon as I get this working 
I hope to create a new wiki page so it is easier for others to share. :)
