Dear Bodhi, Shv, Morph027

Sata uboot oxnas and me is a non working love affair. I tried very much, but failed... :)

In this stage I have command prompt, able to modify env variable.
Is there any way to boot via usb or tftp? Is it possible theoretically?

There is two option:
I have tftp server on my server side.
I have working usb pen drive too. (It works before I screw up boot.)

@robert,

You have unbricked it! You can reflash u-boot in serial console now :)

Yes. Since you have booted into u-boot console with SATA u-boot. However, there is no need to do this. If you like, just reflash NAND u-boot/SPL. Then your pboblem is solved.


To continue with SATA booting:

You've booted SATA far into to the point where the kernel is loaded. So now the problem is to make it boot successfully. I would try different kernel and/ rootfs (unless shv has some idea why the current one does not).

So try switching the uImage and uInitrd to to one from 3.16.0-oxnas-tld-1. Which rootfs are you using?

Hi Bodhi,

Thank you so much!

>If you like, just reflash NAND u-boot/SPL. Then your pboblem is solved.
But how can I reflash NAND if I only have prompt but not a linux console? I dont have nandwrite or erase command.

I have this command line 2 days ago, but you didnt mention it is enough.
I thought I need any kernel loaded and normal linux load and then will be available the nand flash.

> Which rootfs are you using?

I exactly follow the instructions, tried both the latest Archlinux and also tried with Your 3.17 Debian. But none of them works.

>So try switching the uImage and uInitrd to to one from 3.16.0-oxnas-tld-1.
How?

But never mind I had another solution :)

A few hours ago I was able to tftpboot from commandline (based on your note: TFTP boot
And now I have booted debian.

I will now try reflash Uboot and forget this nighmare of no right SATA UBOOT.

But this works.:
1. Sata uboot.
2. Stopped at counter. (or else kernel loading freezed!!)
3. tftpboot from your uboot.2013.10-tld-2.ox820.bin
4. USB pendrive attached with 3.17 debian.
5. login to debian.

Without TFTP boot and USB debian rootfs on pendrive, all previous kernel loading freezed!

Re: 2013.10 U-Boot for Pogoplug V3 (OXNAS)
February 11, 2015 12:03PM
@Robert,
SATA booting seams to work now. With your current setting you are booting an old kernel uImage_2.6.31.14_OX820_1.2_shv.Pro where you don't have the module path. You only need to change you boot settings by changing one line to:

dt_ide_bootcmd=run ide_set_bootargs; run dt_ide_boot
setenv dt_ide_bootcmd 'run ide_set_bootargs; run dt_ide_boot'

With this change you will use the files uImage, uInitrd, ox820-pogoplug-pro.dtb for booting. Then I would recommend you to save the boot directory and untar bodhis rootfs image:

mv boot boot.bak
tar ...

Afterwards you must copy necessary files back from boot.bak to boot: u-boot.env, u-boot.img, u-boot-spl.bin(even not necessary), dts/ox820-pogoplug-pro.dtb(if not contained in rootfs image). uImage and uInitrd shall already be available there from rootfs image.

You can try booting then.

If you have non Pro devices or dtb is part of uImage you may need to adapt the boot-env setting to it. Just ask again if it is not working.

@Robert,

Do what shv suggesting above to boot SATA. You are very close! And then you can flash NAND SPL (if necessary u-boot too) from Linux shell. It's good to have alternatives, and SATA booting is a good rescue mechanism, too, even if you don't plan to use it every day.

However, as of right now, you can also flash it in u-boot console, if needed. The flashing commands are different from ones used in Linux shell.

..... And I've just realized that, as above with tftp, you are already in Debian prompt, so you can flash it from there now :)

Because you have a P24 device you should check if you have ox820-pogoplug-classic.dtb in the dts folder. Then you should change your boot env to use this file instead the file for the Pro device.

Dear Bodhi, Shv, Morph027


YESS!! SATA UBoot booted!
Rename x820-pogoplug-classic.dtb to ox820-pogoplug-pro.dtb solves the last problem.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH GUYS!!

You are so helpful, and I couldnt thank you enought.
I respect you all for so deep knowledge - I know you - work for very hard.

My original problem was to screw up Uboot in Nand with update in a wrong way.
So I will reflash uboot on nand, and try to eliminate sata boot, because I would use this box without sata or Usb.
Just NAND booting Embdebian.
But this will be the next challenge. :)

Now I have small problem with env. but hope will solved with reflashing uboot env.img.

Re: 2013.10 U-Boot for Pogoplug V3 (OXNAS)
February 12, 2015 05:29AM
Just for reference to others, I made a very detailed summary.

Please revise my comment are there right in technical aspect. (?? if I have doubt - I will revise based on your comment)

Synopsys:
My device Pogo Plug P24 - V3 (nonpci) - oxnas 820
I have serial connection,

I Screw up UBoot in NAND - Therefore no boot from USB,
and NOTHING appears on Serial console!!!

Only way to boot is well prepared SATA because oxnas tries to boot Uboot on SATA then Uboot on NAND then USB. (?? is that right??)

Steps

1. Get a SATA HDD. You have to delete all partition from it. Sorry :(
2. Put it to USB HDD frame. Attache to PC. Umount all partition if automount happened.
3. remove partitions, and create new.
fdisk /dev/sdb 
o - create a new empty DOS partition table
n - Create part 1   (start with 2048 ; size: +2G )
w - write 
q - exit


4. mkext4 fs.
mkfs.ext4 /dev/sdb1


( If you have problems with "mkfs.ext4 /dev/sdb is not a block special device."
Detach USB _and_ reboot your PC. and attache again - will solve the problem...)

5 Labell it:
tune2fs -L "rootfs" /dev/sdb1


6.Mount rootfs
mount /dev/sdb1 /media/rootfs


7. Prepare Sata uboot file on PC :
a.) Extract the content Shv made ox820-sata-uboot.tar.gz to your PC
cd  /yourpath
tar -xjf  ox820-sata-uboot.tar.gz

(It is only a boot directory on your PC)
Navigate to /yourpath/boot/dts directory and rename this files:
-it is only needed in case noPCI devices like P24.

mv ox820-pogoplug-pro.dtb ox820-pogoplug-pro.dtb.ori
cp ox820-pogoplug-classic.dtb ox820-pogoplug-pro.dtb


b.) and copy modified /yourpath/boot directory to the rootfs partition.

c.)Modify 2 lines in disk create script on your PC:

c1.) disk=/dev/sdb
c2.) workarea="/yourpath"
d.) save changes

8. Now you have to run Sata uboot SCRIPT on your PC.
It will write U-Boot SPL to Sata disk on the beginning (in the first 2048 sector) on the disk.

8a.) Umount - Just to be safe side: Not write to disk which is mounted... - skip if brave.
umount rootfs

8b.) Run Sata uboot SCRIPT
./disk_create_shv


Prepare Debian Rootfs files.
9.) Mount rootfs again:
mount /dev/sdb1 /media/rootfs

10.) Extract debian files to your PC /yourpath directory. Debian-3.17.0-oxnas-tld-1-rootfs-bodhi.tar.bz2
tar -xjf Debian-3.17.0-oxnas-tld-1-rootfs-bodhi.tar.bz2


11. Copy all directory from PC to your rootfs partition BUT /boot . (It means do not overwrite the existing /boot on rootfs!!)

detach from PC and attache to Pogo.
Attache serial TTL connector and see output. Trust Bodhi, Picocom is better than GNU Screen. I learned :)
picocom -b 115200 /dev/ttyUSB0


Power on your POGO.

Debian will not boot because Uboot env not well set for this configuration. try it but for sure it will freeze. :) then power on - and - of again.

Now Stop the counter by press a key:

Hit any key to stop autoboot:  3

Now set the environment to this setup:

OX820 # setenv dt_ide_bootcmd 'run ide_set_bootargs; run dt_ide_boot'
OX820 # setenv ide_set_bootargs setenv bootargs 'root=/dev/sda1 rootfstype=ext4 console=ttyS0,115200 mem=128M'
OX820 # saveenv 
OX820 # reset


Boot success!!


I hope -you Masters (Bodhi, SHV, Morph) - find my guide is useful. :) and it is a little benefit give back to community. Respect.

I've successfully installed Debian on a V3 and a V3Pro. I borked a V4 while trying to get a decent serial connection soldered onto the board. I'm back to working on another of the V3's and wanted to try a newer kernel.

Thankfully I have serial connections for all my devices and can easily monitor the boot output. This is where the boot process stops:

U-Boot SPL 2013.10 (Apr 27 2014 - 19:08:27)

A quick look at the uboot info gives me this:

I have a usb thumb drive I've used before to boot one of the other V3's and it fails to boot, I have a blank usb drive to test with, and 60GB sata drive. I've spent the past 2 days trying every configuration and "post" and I'm certain I've managed to goof up the uboot configuration. Any thoughts or suggestions would be much appreciated.

Looks like your V3 is trying to boot from ide. If what you posted is your complete printenv, you are missing some stuff.

Here is my ide boot setenv's (partial) for a frame of reference:

setenv uinitrd_addr '0x60e00000'
setenv uimage_addr '0x60500000'
setenv dtb_addr '0x62c00000'
setenv ide_set_bootargs 'setenv bootargs console=ttyS0,115200 root=/dev/sda1 rootdelay=10'
setenv dt_bootm 'bootm $uimage_addr $uinitrd_addr $dtb_addr'
setenv dt_load_dtb 'ext2load ide 0:1 $dtb_addr /boot/dts/ox820-pogoplug-pro.dtb'
setenv dt_load_initrd 'ext2load ide 0:1 $uinitrd_addr /boot/uInitrd'
setenv dt_load_uimage 'ext2load ide 0:1 $uimage_addr /boot/uImage'
setenv dt_ide_boot 'run dt_load_uimage; run dt_load_initrd; run dt_load_dtb; run dt_bootm'
setenv dt_ide_bootcmd 'run ide_set_bootargs; run dt_ide_boot'
setenv dt_bootcmd_ide 'ide reset; run dt_ide_bootcmd; reset'
setenv bootcmd 'run dt_bootcmd_ide'

And for usb booting it's this (complete):

setenv autoload no
setenv baudrate 115200
setenv bootargs console=ttyS0,115200n8
setenv bootdelay 10
setenv console console=ttyS0,115200n8
setenv ethact mii0
setenv ethaddr (removed for security)
setenv ipaddr 192.168.1.100
setenv mtdids nand0=41000000.nand
setenv mtdparts mtdparts=41000000.nand:14m(boot),-(data)
setenv serverip 192.168.1.110
setenv stderr serial
setenv stdin serial
setenv stdout serial
setenv usb_device 0:1
setenv if_netconsole ping $serverip
setenv preboot_nc run if_netconsole start_netconsole
setenv start_netconsole setenv ncip $serverip; setenv bootdelay 10; setenv stdin nc; setenv stdout nc; setenv stderr nc; version
setenv usb_set_bootargs setenv bootargs console=ttyS0,115200 root=/dev/sda1 rootdelay=10
setenv uinitrd_addr 0x60e00000
setenv uimage_addr 0x60500000
setenv dtb_addr 0x62c00000
setenv dt_load_dtb ext2load usb 0:1 $dtb_addr /boot/dts/ox820-pogoplug-pro.dtb
setenv dt_load_initrd ext2load usb 0:1 $uinitrd_addr /boot/uInitrd
setenv dt_load_uimage ext2load usb 0:1 $uimage_addr /boot/uImage
setenv dt_bootm bootm $uimage_addr $uinitrd_addr $dtb_addr
setenv dt_usb_boot run dt_load_uimage; run dt_load_initrd; run dt_load_dtb; run dt_bootm
setenv dt_usb_bootcmd run usb_set_bootargs; run dt_usb_boot
setenv dt_bootcmd_usb usb start; run dt_usb_bootcmd; usb stop; reset
setenv bootcmd run dt_bootcmd_usb

I think your V3 uses another dtb so you might need to change that.

Do a printenv and try to determine what you are missing based on what I have posted. Note that my boot env's are pretty simple compared to some of the really complicated netconsole / tftp ones I have seen on the forum so you might want to take a look at some of those if you wanna get funky.

@thebladerunner,

You are running the new u-boot, but with the default envs from internal u-boot settings. You should have also flashed the default envs image (step 10) if you are going to run an FDT kernel/rootfs such as this rootfs.

10. Flash uboot environment to 0x00100000 (See caveat in step 2, do not flash this if the kernel is not FDT)

So right now, to recover you can do either one of the following at u-boot console prompt:

1. Copy and paste each of the default envs listing from step 12. And boot
12. For sanity check, print out uBoot envs to see if they were flashed OK. If there is error in listing the envs, do not reboot and post your problem here.

2. Copy and paste each of the envs from Leggo's post above. And boot.

After you have booted successfully into Debian, flash the envs image in step 10.

Ok. I'm pleased to report that I was able to get my PP V3 up and running. It ended up being a problem with the uBoot env variables. The configuration that finally worked is listed below:

autoload=no

uinitrd_addr=0x60e00000
usb_device=0:1
usb_set_bootargs=setenv bootargs console=ttyS0,115200 root=/dev/sda1 rootdelay=10

Specifically I think there was a conflict in one of the boot commands and its arguments. Many thanks to LeggoMyEggo and Bodhi.

I was also able to get a usb wifi dongle to work. I've been using the Realtek based dongles on my RBPi boxen for the past couple of years and had an extras to test with.

Myself not the brightest bulb in the bunch what I have discovered recently, besides the obvious necessity and importance of having serial console, is when you are in the middle of trying to diagnose boot env issues, sometimes it's best to printenv then copy and paste them and then print them out on paper so that you can follow the logic and instruction sequencing. I believe 'bootcmd' is what the firmware uses to start the whole process of booting regardless if booting from NAND, USB drive, SD card or SATA depending on platform so if every setting and command execution that flows from that is logical and calls for variables that have been set properly, then you should be ok. It also helps to print them to a document so that you can tweak them all at once, check for errors or typos and then copy/paste/enter them all at once with confidence that you haven't left something out. And always remember to 'saveenv' or 'fw_saveenv' frequently so you don't lose your work.

Re: 2013.10 U-Boot for Pogoplug V3 (OXNAS)

I've uploaded the uboot.2013.10-tld-4 u-Boot image for Pogoplug V3 Oxnas. Please see 1st post for download link.

This u-boot supports the following latest U-Boot features (among others):

- Ability to customize u-boot envs in a script (uEnv.txt) during boot, without committing changes to NAND. This feature also can be used for rescue purpose where the u-boot envs were messed up, or when the NAND envs block is bad.
- both FDT and non-FDT kernel booting
- supports EFI/GPT partition > 2TB (SATA and USB) either for booting or just attached.
- boot Ext4 rootfs
- SNTP (Simple NTP to set date time during U-Boot booting)
- bootz (boot with zImage).
- Run the Pogo V3 at 850mhz (for whatever reason, if you wish to run at 700Mhz as previous version did, then use the old u-boot SPL version uboot.spl.2013.10.ox820.mtd0.img). U-boot image proper is independent of the SPL, so it can still be updated to uboot.2013.10-tld-4.

Note: this version does not have NAND jffs2 file system supports (it is gotten quite big, so this was removed to save space, ubifs is preferred anyway).

OK bodhi, here is the screen print from reflashing the new u-boot and it shows the bad blocks I have and the inability to store the u-envs. I'll try to set up the uenv.txt file in /boot and see how it goes.

Cool :)

I don't think it is needed, or will take effect at all, since the uEnv.txt is loaded as part of the default bootcmd (but it does not hurt anything).

To verify the sequence, boot with serial console, interrupt it, and then do
printenv

This will show the default envs from u-boot internals. And that are used, because the env NAND block is bad.

bodhi,

I am having trouble booting using uEnv.txt in /boot while attempting unsupervised (i.e. no serial console) from a cold start. Am I mistaken in thinking the new u-boot automatically loads the uEnv.txt file and does a "saveenv" before going any further? That is, as long as I have a proper uEnv.txt in /boot that I can I boot this Pro (with the bad nand blocks where boot.env's are stored) without having to do anything else? If bootcmd that is performed is whatever the default in u-boot is, what are the contents of the bootcmd command ran by the new u-boot? If it would be easier to post a sample uEnv.txt contents then I could follow that as well.

LME

Sorry LME, I've have misses a file version in the build :) that's why you can only run it in serial console currently. This only applies to your case where the NAND block is bad. For others, they can save the envs so it will work the next boot, without doing anything extra.

In your case, you can't save the envs at all because the NAND block is bad, so you will have to rely on the default envs internally defined by u-boot. The default bootcmd env must include the loading script to load the uEnv.txt file automatically as described in the 1st post.

So stay tune, I will rebuild and release another version :) In the mean time, you have to manually start your box like you are doing. Thanks for testing!

Well that makes sense. When I do a printenv at the OX820 prompt my originally loaded bootcmd= is followed by giberish because that part of the nand boot envs is corrupted. I can setenv a new bootcmd but I can't saveenv it so in order to boot from the OX820 prompt I have to use bootm. So with a corrupted bootcmd, no matter what I change the other nand boot env's to be - and if they can be saved at all without corruption - it doesn't matter because my nand bootcmd is messed up. I guess at this point the only way I could do an unsupervised boot is via the specially prepared sata disk with stage 1 boot files referenced earlier in the thread. Hey its something.

I know I should give up on this thing. At least I'm learning :)

Why giving up? It's part of the hacking experience. NAND blocks are bound to be bad on these cheap plugs. Example: about half of my plugs have bad blocks. You're just unlucky that it's bad at the block where it counts:)
