OK I could boot (unsupervised) with the specially prepared sata disk if the u-boot.env file included in shv's ox820-sata-uboot.tar disk prep package didin't boot from uImage only (dt_sata_boot=ext2load ide 0:1 $uimage_addr /boot/uImage_2.6.31.14_OX820_1.2_shv.Pro; bootm $uimage_addr). And unfortunately the only way I have read to create and / or modify the u-boot-env file is with the mkenvimage tool which I don't know how to load onto the linux box I am preparing the special disk with. Do you happend to have a u-boot-env file you could post that is for the latest rootfs that loads uImage, uInitrd and the dtb (in /boot or /boot/dts correspondingly) files and then boots from their memory locations? Or if you could provide some pointers on how to load mkenvimage on my linux box that would work too.

Edit: I just realized something. What if I do the following below and rename the resulting created uImage (with embedded dtb) to uImage_2.6.31.14_OX820_1.2_shv.Pro?

cd /media/sdb1/boot
cp -a zImage-3.17.0-oxnas-tld-1 zImage-3.17.0-oxnas-tld-1.fdt
cat dts/ox820-pogoplug-pro.dtb >> zImage-3.17.0-oxnas-tld-1.fdt
mkimage -A arm -O linux -C none -T kernel -a 0x60008000 -e 0x60008000 -n 'Linux-3.3.17.0-oxnas-tld-1' -d zImage-3.17.0-oxnas-tld-1.fdt uImage_2.6.31.14_OX820_1.2_shv.Pro

@ LeggoMyEggo,

Please install and try this release version. You only need to flash u-boot image (the SPL and Pogo env are the same images).

Dropbox:
uboot.2013.10-tld-5.ox820.bodhi.tar
md5:

So this u-boot by default checks to see if there is a uEnv.txt file in /boot before it executes the bootenv's stored in nand? Is that correct?

Here is what I plan on putting into uEnv.txt this time. If you see anything that looks like it doesn't belong please let me know.

Yes it does, but in reverse. u-boot envs are always checked before anything else. However, if the check failed because the NAND block is bad, then it will set the envs to the default values internally defined. And inside this u-boot, the default bootcmd is defined to load uEnv.txt as the first action.

Everything looks good, except the missing ethaddr. And later after booting, the rootfs label should be set up for future multiple drive booting.

I've realized I've missed this question! the reason you have problem loading this command because it is part of the u-boot build. It is not in Debian repository. So to run this and create a proper u-boot env image, you can use the attached binary in this post:

Upgrading to newer version needs some changes when booting from SATA (at least here in my case, as ide command does not know start/stop anymore)

I've changed

dt_bootcmd_ide=ide start; run dt_ide_bootcmd; ide stop; reset


to

dt_bootcmd_ide=ide reset; run dt_ide_bootcmd; reset

Hello Bodhi,

This uboot.2013.10-tld-4.ox820.bodhi.tar is for PogoPlug V3. Is it the same as my newly acquired PogoPlug Pro P02 from Adorama? If so, then I will just follow the instruction as shown on your OP.
Re: 2013.10 U-Boot for Pogoplug V3 (OXNAS)
April 08, 2015 04:38PM
habibie,

Yes it is for Pogo V3. And Pogo V3 has many models.

POGO-P01 this is the Pro version and P02 is Canadian model of the same.

The rest I'd lump them into a Classic version. These don't have Wifi (PCIe).

POGO-P21
POGO-P24
POGO-P25
POGO-B01
POGO-B02
POGO-B03
POGO-B04

Hello Bodhi,

My understanding of the above statement is if my PogoPlug Pro P02 still runs on its original stock firmware (which I believe doesn't support FDT) and I flash the env image pogopro_uboot_env.img, the new uboot won't be able to boot the original stock firmware. That is fine with me. I also wonder if the latest PogoPlug Pro firmware has a support for FDT that I can update the original firmware. This way, the env image pogopro_uboot_env.img will be able to boot it.

Correct.

Not really. The default envs are set up to boot with kernel and rootfs on USB. So it won't work without modifying. And it's not a good way to boot stock OS either. To do that, we should try to chainload the old u-boot if possible.

Thank you for the above clarification.
Re: 2013.10 U-Boot for Pogoplug V3 (OXNAS)
May 17, 2015 05:08PM
A request for help.

I have a Pogoplug Pro (Oxnas CPU, Internal SATA port, Internal WiFi via PCI-e card). I have access to the internal serial port.

I set out out update my Pogoplug system completely, it was running an older version of Debian off a USB stick but not very well. I have followed the instructions in the first post and successfully updated U-boot. Unfortunately something went wrong and the environment variables got messed up. To correct this, I have tried to cut and paste the list of environment variables in the post by Bodhi above line by line, but this method fails with the longer, more complex lines.

Can someone direct me to a 'howto' or tell me what I need to type from the U-boot prompt to boot a previously known working USB stick. Once I've got a working Debian command prompt, I can then attempt to reflash the environment variables so hopefully I have a system that will correctly boot a USB stick. Once I've got a Pogoplug that starts correctly, I can then re-program the USB stick to an updated version of Debian. Then I will have acheived what I set out to do - the hard way!

Thanks

Peter

Peter,

If you are running the latest u-boot version, then you can use uEnv.txt to restore a default set like the one I've posted.

Quote

Updated 05 Mar 2015

I've uploaded the uboot.2013.10-tld-4 u-Boot image for Pogoplug V3 Oxnas. 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 (see section A below for instruction). 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.

The instruction is in section A.

Peter,

It occured to me that you might want to enter the envs one-by-one at serial console prompt OX820>. In that case, each of the default envs should be entered as followed:

OX820> setenv autoload 'no'
OX820> setenv bootargs 'console=ttyS0,115200n8'
and so on.

Basically, you want to replace the first = sign, with a space and a single quote. Keep everying as is until then end, where you end quote with another single quote.

You should prepare these commands on a notepad. And then paste them one by one at the serial console prompt.

autoload=no
baudrate=115200
bootargs=console=ttyS0,115200n8
bootdelay=10
console=console=ttyS0,115200n8
ethact=mii0
ethaddr=5e:2b:15:71:ec:b6
ipaddr=192.168.0.222

uinitrd_addr=0x60e00000

dtb_addr=0x62c00000
dt_load_dtb=ext2load usb 0:1 $dtb_addr /boot/dts/ox820-pogoplug-pro.dtb
dt_load_initrd=ext2load usb 0:1 $uinitrd_addr /boot/uInitrd
dt_load_uimage=ext2load usb 0:1 $uimage_addr /boot/uImage
dt_bootm=bootm $uimage_addr $uinitrd_addr $dtb_addr
dt_usb_boot=run dt_load_uimage; run dt_load_initrd; run dt_load_dtb; run dt_bootm
dt_usb_bootcmd=run usb_set_bootargs; run dt_usb_boot
dt_bootcmd_usb=usb start; run dt_usb_bootcmd; usb stop; reset
bootcmd=run dt_bootcmd_usb
and then execute boot to boot the box:
OX820> boot


After you have booted successfully into Debian, then use Linux fw_setenv command to set them for real. Again, prepare another set in notepad, this time use the fw_setenv instead of setenv. And then paste each one to the command line.

Bodhi,

Thank you for your helpful reply. The secret bit I did not know was to put the long, complex lines 'in single quotes'. Once I did this I was able to get the all the environment variables set correctly and it now boots correctly. Now to sort out the rest of it.

In the example printev shown further up this page, (2001 bytes) there's an error message caused by the line 'preboot=run safeboot' - safeboot is not defined. It does not affect what I am doing.

Thank you and the community for your efforts to help let us play with our devices in ways the maker did not really intend.

Regards

Peter

I have installed U-Boot according to this thread and I am running Debian with kernel 3.17.
In the OP ist says:
"After flashing this U-Boot, it still will be possible to boot back to stock OS"
I tried to do that but it seems to me it doesn't ...
If I unplug the USB stick with the Debian rootfs on it and power cycle the box, I cannot connect to it any more.
It still has the same IP addr, but I cannot ping it and it doesn't seem to listen on an http[s] or ssh port, at least I cannot connect.
This is not a big deal, as I don't need to run the original Pogo OS anyways, I am/was just curious if I screwed something up.
I assume it might have something to do with my U-Boot environment settings.

zwalex,

Cool! so you have installed and run Debian kernel 3.17 successfully.

Regarding the stock Pogo OS, I should have made it clearer: it is possible to boot back to stock OS. However, some u-boot envs needed to be adjusted so that it will boot into Pogo OS when there is no USB or HDD rootfs present. As it is right now, the default u-boot envs set does not have those settings.

I meant to post these settings so that everybody can use Pogo OS as a simple rescue system. But have not got around to do that. So stay tune and it will be available eventually!

In the mean time, just be sure you don't change NAND mtdparts definition or try flashing other software (such as OpenWrt), like some users did. it will complicate things a bit (still possible) when you set it up later.

Thanks bodhi!
As I said - not a big deal, as I am not planing to use the original Pogo OS ever again ...
Knowing that it would still be there as a kind of a rescue system would be cool though - so I am looking forward to seeing the u-boot envs settings allowing this.
My next step now will be to upgrade the kernel.
Thanks again!
Re: 2013.10 U-Boot for Pogoplug V3 (OXNAS)

I have severe problems with USB booting on both oxnas devices I've tried (a black POGO-P21 and pink POGO-B01). This has happened with a couple of different USB flash drives/card readers and both U-Boot 2013.10-tld-4 and U-Boot 2013.10-tld-5. Using the default environment with dt_bootcmd_usb set to 'usb start; run dt_usb_bootcmd; usb stop; reset', U-Boot goes into a loop of:
U-Boot 2013.10-tld-5 (Mar 07 2015 - 16:50:17) for OXNAS

The EHCI controller works fine in Linux. I don't know much about the platform details, but something doesn't seem right here. Any relevant U-Boot build params (clock related, etc.) that could affect reliability of the USB controller?

This is most likely due to the type of USB flash drive you are using. Which brand is this one? Some USB flash drives can't not be used for booting reliably. Sandisk is among the most reliable USB 2.0 flash drives for booting.

I can't recall if I did implement the usb_ready_retry on this u-boot version (I have this in the Kirkwood u-boot). Try this:

- interrupt netconsole, and enter command:
setenv usb_ready_retry 15
- and then
boot

See if you can boot consistently with this seting. And please post the output of netconsle session in either case.

I think the one branded drive I had issues with was a Transcend 4 GB drive, the rest are branded conference giveaways with no clear markings, or generic micro SD card readers (I have a lot more microSD cards than modern USB drives).

That's your problem right there. The conference giveaway flash drives are garbage.

I have alarm on the pogo right now.
4. You are running stock kernel, and have gained SHH access to the box, and have downloaded u-boot-tools and mtd-utils (fw_setenv, flash_erase, nandwrite …) to work with NAND mtds. And plan to run a USB rootfs that came from any of the above 3.

OK so I plan to run a new rootfs/kernel from USB, I need a new uBoot to do this. I have a serial console. I get to step 12 and I do not have valid uBoot envs. I did not run step 9 or 10 as instructed as I have the stock kernel right now.

[ 4380.990000] uncorrectable error :
[ 4380.990000] uncorrectable error : Warning: Bad CRC, using default environment
bootcmd=bootp; setenv bootargs root=/dev/nfs nfsroot=${serverip}:${rootpath} ip=${ipaddr}:${serverip}:${gatewayip}:${netmask}:${hostname}::off; bootm
bootdelay=5
baudrate=115200

How do I put the correct uboot environment back?

Thanks!
