dpf-ax: unsupported dpf - requests

dpf-ax: unsupported dpf - requests
October 22, 2012 01:47PM
Please use this thread for posting requests for unsupported dpfs.

First thing to do before tinkering with the display:
MAKE A BACKUP OF THE ORIGINAL FIRMWARE!
let me repeat it:
MAKE A BACKUP OF THE ORIGINAL FIRMWARE!

Without a copy of this firmware it is impossible to add your dpf! Or recover it if something goes wrong!

There are two possibilities to backup the firmware with dpf-ax:

fulldump.py: backup of firmware only.
cd ./fw
sudo ./fulldump.py /dev/sgX
Where "X" is the device your dpf is connected to (normally "/dev/sg1" or "/dev/sg2").
The dump will be written to "full.bin".

identify.py: backup of firmware and check if your dpf is already supported.
cd ./fw
sudo ./identify.py /dev/sgX
Where "X" is the device your dpf is connected to (normally "/dev/sg1" or "/dev/sg2").
The dump will be written to "identify.out/full.bin".

If identify.py tells you that your dpf is not supported, upload the firmware somewhere and post a link or attach it your request.

Some additional infos would be nice:
- Manufacturer
- Link to shopping site.

Moderator note: I've made this a sticky.

Sorry, no matching dpf found.

There are 2 references at the back DPF815a and BFV151

Yeahh it's working !!

Thanks a lot.

It's very pale (not enough contrast) but it's working :-) !

Regards.

That was to be expected, because I did not implement the contrast setting. :-)
The contrast setting routine in the original fw looks weird - if not to say faulty -, so I choose not to implemet it on the first try.
Attached are two different implementations of contrast setting. Could you please test if none / one / both are working?

Again thanks a lot : both are perfectly working !

best contrast setting seems to be 2 3 or 4 (for my eyes :-) ).

-> gonna post photos sometime :-)

FYI: new model "carrefour_bfv151" in svn.
I used the "table" variant, like the broken one from the original fw - only fixed :-).

@olderzeus

Please try attached fw.
Your dpf has a funny brightness-table, so please test if adjusting the brightness works correctly.

Do you have a manufacturer / shop link for this display?

Hi!

I just got cheap DPF from Clas Ohlson. Unfortunately it is not supported:
Detecting & reading dpf flash...
Opening generic SCSI device '/dev/sg2'
Manufacturer: Apple
Size        : 1 MB
Reading 100000 bytes...
Flash written to file 'identify.out/full.bin'.

Looking for firmware.............: Found (buildwin, 128x128 px).
Looking for Openwin..............: Found.
Looking for LcdIniTbl............: Found.

Sorry, no matching dpf found.
Any luck to hack the firmware?

I won a T3468 Zumba Digital Photo Viewer from digikey in a twitter contest. It's a combination digital photo viewer and pencil holder (yes, really!).
I couldn't immediately see how to attach a file here, so I uploaded it to my server: http://www.scannedinavian.com/~shae/zumba.full.bin.gz
identify.py gave me a partial match on the clas_ohlson dpf requested by BufferFramed

I have another question.. what version of sdcc has binaries named asx8051 and aslink? Recent versions of http://sdcc.sf.net/ produce binaries named sdcc and sdas8051, only the manpages still refer to asx8051.

So, how can I find these? Should I be able to symlink binaries from the most recent sdcc to match these names?
CC = sdcc
AS = asx8051
LD = aslink

Thanks for this project!

@ Shae Erisson

Please try attached fw.

As far as I can see asx8051 was renamed to sdas8051 in sdcc 3.0. Should be okay to symlink sdas8051 to asx8051 and see what happens. :-)

That firmware seems to flash just fine with restore.py

I ran detect.py on fw_disp_zumba_t3468.bin and it says it is already hacked, as expected.

After flashing the firmware you hacked for me, I hold down the menu button and press the reset button to get into bootloader mode.

But when I run lcd4linux it says:

Found AX206 DPF (bootloader)
DPF: framebuffer could not be allocated: malloc() failed
Error initializing driver DPF: Exit!

I've been reading http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=64&t=6688&start=100
and it implies I should see googly eyes and a new menu at some point, but I don't get that.

Am I doing something wrong?
Re: dpf-ax: unsupported dpf - requests
December 25, 2012 12:04PM
Bootloader mode (menu + reset) is only needed for flashing the firmware.
After the firmware is flashed you should see the eyes on power on.

Hi superelchi! I've got a 2,4" 320x240px dpf from http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=10380777914, it seems not supported :

# python identify.py my_origin_firmware.bin 
Looking for firmware.............: Found (buildwin, 320x240 px).
Looking for Openwin..............: Found.
Looking for LcdIniTbl............: Found.
Looking for known signatures.....: None.
Looking for known version info...: None.

Sorry, no matching dpf found.

This hardware should be similar with olderzeus's, the origin firmware of olderzeus's could be used in my DPF.
I have test firmware pt824, the screen displays the eyes successfully. But when using lcd4linux, the screen falls black.
Add is there any guide?

Regards.
Re: dpf-ax: unsupported dpf - requests

The origin firmware is here.

If you can see the eyes firmware should be okay. Maybe a problem with your lcd4linux install/version/config. You can try dpfsend instead to verify if the display is working (see here) or any other programm that supports ax206. Have a look at the Wiki.

dpfsend works well.
but the others with the same lcd4linux config works well with DPF of olderzeus's version.
And I have tested it with vnc, it works well too.
If I using other firmware such as linkdelight_4, the screen is divided into several areas. some of them shows correctly( and tested it under lcd4linux) .

You can download the config from http://pan.baidu.com/share/link?shareid=150013&uk=1107847486
It's just olderzeus's
