Old GoFlex Net new... never started... but pogoplug is dead..
April 20, 2020 05:36AM
Hi,

i just found a new, never used GoFlex net i bought long time ago with my dockstar... i want to use it just for local NAS, no cloud. But as pogoplug is not existing anymore, is there a way to activate it ? can i install debian on it like that from a fresh new unused goflex net ? The thing is i can't acces it : ssh do not work / web page neither. I have IP and MAC through the router... but that's all.... is it totally dead as pogoplug do not exist anymore to activate it ?

Thank you.

fredk,


pogoplug.com is no longer available. So you cannot enable SSH through its web site.

It might worth a try to see if you can log in using the old approach for GoGlex Home. It is described here at Arch Linux ARM site (click on Installation)

https://archlinuxarm.org/platforms/armv5/seagate-goflex-home

If the above is not working then you have to connect serial console. Then it is easy to install Debian.

Hi Bodhi,


thank you for the feedback. I was afraid of such an answer ;(
the thing is that i have the IP and MAC, but can't access to any web interface... http://IP show me an error.... SSH to the IP show me a connection refused... I haven't tried the reset but basically the device is fresh new;;. taken out of the box few days ago... so not set i guess....

I thought at least i would have a local interface....

for serial, my competencies in soldering are.... let's say..... awfully low ! Are there serial cable all made that can be bought ? and without needing of soldering ?

Ebay or Amazon. I got a CP2102 USB module on Amazon shipped with Prime for about $4. This is the one I got last week, though is currently not available. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07MY2B4VJ

The leads are a little thicker but being careful, you can insert the three needed ones (ground, Rx and Tx).

fredk,

Open up the box and see if the header is already installed by the manufactorer. Most GoFlex Net have it. So no soldering needed.

We talked about serial console converter here:
https://forum.doozan.com/read.php?8,13263

Basically, the model is CP2xx or PL3xx. You can find it on eBay, or Amazon. su_A_ve have a good one. CP2102 usually simpler than PL3xxx.

If you have raspberry pi, you can just use Rpi as the serial adapter---you just need to install raspbian, boot it, run raspi-config to activate serial, but don't use serial port to login, then use three cables to connect Rpi's TX/RX/GND to your box's RX/TX/GND, run minicom or picocom whatever on Rpi...

@David : Thank you but I don't have any raspberry... i have 2 dockstars but no RPi... :(

Got it. In fact i have nothing to losse as warranty is gone far away... I'll try this. And i guess 5 dollars is ok to try to revival my goflex... I bought it long time ago to replace any of my dockstar in case of failure.... but they are still runing for almost 10 years now without - almost - any issue !

Your dockstar has serial ... You can use that...
Re: Old GoFlex Net new... never started... but pogoplug is dead..

fredk,

First thing: open the box to check to see if there is a header already installed. If there is no header, then see if the pins are empty holes or soldered buttons (holes are good).

Since you can't do soldering, that would tell you whether you should buy serial module converter.

======

In the past, even with soldered buttons, I have connected a temporary serial console with 3 shirt pins, 3 test clips. The test clips have wires already attached when you buy it. So I connect the 3 wires from serial module converter to the 3 clips. And then clip the 3 shirt pins. Get everything ready:

- Plug in the serial converter to the host box.
- type the picocom/minicom command on terminal shell, but dont execute it.
- Now press each of the 3 shirt pins to the soldered buttons. Just enough to hold the pins (solder are soft enough).
- Execute the picocom command
- Power up the box.
- Log in to stock OS, and activate SSH.

If the pins fall out during this, then repeat the whole process. Hopefully, the pins are going to stay long enough for a few minutes that allow you to activate SSH in stock.

Ok . I opened it. seems there is a header. So first step is good.
Thenk i wsaw this : woudl it be ok ?

https://www.amazon.fr/Convertisseur-Converter-Module-Built-CP2102/dp/B00AFRXKFU?ref_=nav_ya_signin&;

Do you think the wired would be ok ? so no soldering at all and i have everything to try ?

Funny as i am doing this just for the fun, as the goflex is really weak in performances etc... and i don't even know how to plug a hard drive as i don't have any goflex case and there is only one USB.. so for the boot stick :) but it is funny... we'll see if the fun is worth 10 euros :)

That CP2102 looks good. No soldering needed.

And remember that you should only connect 3 wires (GND, TXD, RXD). The 3.3V power on the header should not be connected.

You can plug in a bare 2.5" HDD/SSD without using a case.

It's a crucial first step in learning to hack embedded Linux. It will be very handy when you start playing with larger NAS when you really need it.

Hi, still waiting for the USB to Serial pack.... hurry up cause my dockstar is showing signs of death....
Re: Old GoFlex Net new... never started... but pogoplug is dead..
June 27, 2020 07:54AM
Hi finally received it !!! Can't try it this week-end but i hope doing this during the week....

I started to read, and just a question. Is it the good order of things :

- activate ssh
- install uboot for booting from usb
- install debian or something else.. ?

I really need just a "simple" nas, *smb shares as my other dockstar is starting to show weakness... but i have another dockstar with a debian for all other stuff... so just need to replace the dockstar with smb storage... so is it ok (and possible) to use just the goflex software for that ? So perhaps i don't have to install anything.... even though i'm stil not sure i will be able to activate it... as they shut there servers...

You need to, at the minimum, install new Debian rootfs on USB or HDD, you can run stock u-boot with it.

Stock GF Net OS is no longer usable for anything other being than a rescue system.

============

To make sure you can rescue this box if you messed up, or you should install new u-boot, try kwboot using the latest u-boot image for GF Net:

https://forum.doozan.com/read.php?3,12381

Follow the example here:

https://forum.doozan.com/read.php?3,51739,51919#msg-51919

This UART booting is the first thing you should test if you have serial console. Once you can do this, the box is almost impossible to brick.

Hi,

ok finally i found few hours to install my GFN... so i had to break the pin of my received cable and use a plier because they were to big. but now they are ok on the GFN. I boot and can see the console...

So i tried to install wheezy using the : http://projects.doozan.com/debian/ tuto but it can't find the distribution apparently...

here are the error log :
-sh-3.2# cat /tmp/debian/debootstrap/debootstrap.log

Connecting to cdn.debian.net (128.31.0.62:80)
wget: server returned error: HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found




so... now i don't know what to do.. can i safely turn it off to find another solution... rerun the script safely or does this tuto is not up to date anymore ?

Can I install uboot from bodhi's post, a new one, or do i have to install debian first ?

That was a quick fail :)

Hi fredk,

This site explains how to activate the ssh service (dropbear) on a Pogoplug device without using the official Pogoplug Website.

https://www.exploitee.rs/index.php/PogoPlug_Mobile#GPL

Enjoy!

Hi, thank you, but sorry my skills are limited i guess : what is the relationship between ssh and this ? i have bought a serial cable, and i am using the console to install the debian distrib. Is it because we can't use console to install debian and uboot ? because i was hopin after debian is installed, ssh will en activated on it by default.

You can install both at the same time from stock OS.

U-Boot

Debian:

If you'd like me to look over your installation, don't reboot, post the entire session log here.

Hi Bodhi, thank you, i'll try this, it is just that it is much more complicated than the scripted version :(

i'll try this tomorrow hoping i will be able to do it... thank you, i'll come back for the result. i'll start with the uboot then the debian...

Ok.... not sure i will do anything with this GFN.... i don't know if i'm gettig old but the dockstar process seemed much much easier to me...

So it tried to install uboot but first i have CRC errors during some commands, but apparently not in the blocks of the mtd (block 14 for me, not between 1 and 7), but stupid question : i have no ssh, how can i copy binaires on the dockstar ? I tried scp... but there is no ssh...

Well, all you need is a properly made USB boot disk. Your new U-boot is already there. Follow bodhi's detailed instructions, make one or two USB root file systems and try to boot again. SanDisk brand is highly recommended. Use USB 2.0 drive.

This is not bricked. If it is bricked, you will not get anything from console.

Hi, thank you Daviddyer,

but I forgot to create the uenv.txt file, so i though that would be he problem.

for the usb boot disk, you mean i have to create it from another computer ? because on the GFN i have no more shell... can i create it from my dockstar ? using the link bodhi gave before, but from dockstar right ? i have a 16Gb sandisk from the dockstar, when i moved it to a bigger one... it already has 2 partitions, 1 linux bootable and a swap one.... will give a try now...

You can create the root file system disk on ANY linux / unix computers, eg, raspberry pi with raspbian, Intel / AMD computer systems with Linux live CD / live USB, etc

You don't need to create uEnv.txt, that file is not required to boot the system... That file can be used to save a Env-messed-up box or test some environment variables.

Another option:

I spun up a Debian 10 x86 server image on VirtualBox running on a Windows 10 device. Also available on Mac. Costs nothing for VirtualBox or the Debian iso. And it loads quickly. I use it a lot for this purpose. Be sure to get the expansion pack so you can access USB dives.

fredk,

All good suggestions above by David and Leggo! Create a new rootfs using Debian-5.2.9-kirkwood-tld-1-rootfs-bodhi.tar.bz2 on USB.

Or you can also use the rootfs from your Dockstar. It should boot OK if the u-boot installed on Dockstar is the latest. If u-boot on the Dockstar is old (e.g. 2012), then its rootfs need to be adjusted a bit to boot with the new u-boot on GF Net now.

Hello,

so i would like to thank Bodhi and David for the help.... finally i managed to have a proper bootable debian on the GFN :)

root@GoFlexNet:~# uname -a
Linux GoFlexNet 5.7.1-kirkwood-tld-1 #1.0 PREEMPT Sun Jun 7 20:57:38 PDT 2020 armv5tel GNU/Linux


Now i have to dig more on Debian as it was al ong time since i haven't touched it.... my first thing is the date which takes several minutes to sync through ntp after reboot... but it is ok. then the GFN seems to be very warm... i'm wondering if i won't take off the lead to cool it down... when i had it open with the serial cable, i was not able to touch the CPU with the finger because it was very very hot. I'll try to find some small cooler for it.... might help.... hoping it will last at least 10 years like the dockstar :)
IF i manage to have a stable GFN i might try top update the dockstar too....as you said the uboot from the dockstar is the original from long time ago... it could be funny to install newer one and debian buster if supported on it... but this is another story when i will have some time :)

Anyway, thank you again for help and support !
it was fun digging it a little in that :)
