Dockstar completely dead? (no led anymore)
January 18, 2013 06:41PM
Hey guys,

my dockstar did not boot via network so i bought a dku-5 cable and connected serial to the dockstar.

I looked for some tutorials how to reflash the dockstar to gain network access again and found this -> http://archlinuxarm.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1323

After some reading I tried the following:

// Set Dockstar IP & netmask
setenv ipaddr xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
setenv netmask xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
// Set TFTP server IP
setenv serverip xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
// Confirm that you can get from Dockstar to TFTP server
ping $(serverip)
// Load uBoot to Dockstar RAM
tftp 0x800000 uboot.mtd0.dockstar.original.kwb
// Erase just enough of NAND to replace uBoot
nand erase 0x0 0x80000
// Write uBoot from RAM to NAND
nand write.e 0x800000 0x0 0x80000

After doing this I rebooted and now, nothing happens anymore... :(

No led is flashing, no access via serial...

Unfortunatly, I think that's it, but maybe there is any chance to repair it? :'(

Thanks in advance!

Well, I browsed the web a bit more and found out that it's possible to reanimate the dockstar with jtag by using a buspirate? Am I right or did i get something wrong?

Thanks a lot for any help!
