Pogoplug Pogo-E02 can't flash Uboot
June 06, 2024 02:22AM
Hello,

I have an old Pogoplug Pogo-E02, which so far I am using only for making my external HDDs/USB Flash drives available through the local network. I discovered that this box can run different OS - Debian or OpenWRT and so can be used not only for network storage sharing but also for a DLNA server and a torrent downloader. I have read some threads, bough UBS to serial adapter and tried to flash the device's Uboot using this commands:
cd /tmp
wget http://jeff.doozan.com/debian/uboot/install_uboot_mtd0.sh
chmod +x install_uboot_mtd0.sh
./install_uboot_mtd0.sh

So far so good, but then I am getting an error message, that wget can't handle https so it cannot download .md5 and exit the installation. Then I tried with kwboot using:

kwboot -t -B 115200 /dev/ttyUSB0 -b /tmp/uboot.2017.07-tld-1.pogo_e02.mtd0 -p

When hit enter, the it ask me to restart/power on the device, but when I do so - nothing happens?!
If not using kwboot, I am able to see all the booting process from the UART console, I can interrupt the booting process and use some commands, but that's it.

I've search thru that forum, as there are many threats about Podo E02, but I'm totally confused, as almost all of the threads points to some previous threat and I actually can't find a step-by-step tutorial how to flash uboot, and Debian/OpenWRT afterwards from the stock FW.
Please help!

Kiro,

That script by Jeff is quite old. Here is how we install Debian and new u-boot (optional).

Wiki thread

Kirkwood plugs

Basic steps to install Debian and new u-boot on Kirkwood boxes
Boot Kirkwood rootfs with stock u-boot

Latest Linux Kirkwood kernel and rootfs
Latest Kirkwood u-boots

The Pogo E02 does not support UART booting, so kwboot will not work. For this reason, when and if you install new u-boot you must be careful. The recovery path from a bad flash is to connect JTAG (big hassle, need soldering a header to the board).

bodhi,

Are those the steps I should take:

1. I should plug an empty 8+ GB USB flash drive into a Linux PC, and run:
fdisk /dev/sdb
mke2fs -j /dev/sdb1

2. Mount the new partition, copy to and extract Debian-6.5.7-kirkwood-tld-1-rootfs-bodhi.tar.bz2 file to the root of the new partition:
cd /media/sdb1 
tar xjf Debian-6.5.7-kirkwood-tld-1-rootfs-bodhi.tar.bz2

3. Create specific rootfs for the Pogo-E02:
cd /media/sdb1/boot
cp -a zImage-6.5.7-kirkwood-tld-1  zImage.fdt
cat dts/kirkwood-pogo_e02.dtb  >> zImage.fdt
mv uImage uImage.orig
mkimage -A arm -O linux -T kernel -C none -a 0x00008000 -e 0x00008000 -n Linux-6.5.7-kirkwood-tld-1 -d zImage.fdt  uImage
sync

4. Unplug the USB drive from the Linux PC, plug it into POGO-E02, power-on the device, interrupt u-boot and:
setenv usb_set_bootargs 'setenv bootargs console=ttyS0,115200 root=LABEL=rootfs rootdelay=10 earlyprintk=serial'
setenv load_uimage 'ext2load usb 0:1 0x800000 /boot/uImage'
setenv load_uinitrd 'ext2load usb 0:1 0x2100000 /boot/uInitrd'
setenv usb_boot 'mw 0x800000 0 1; run load_uimage; run load_uinitrd; bootm 0x800000 0x2100000'
setenv usb_bootcmd 'run usb_set_bootargs; run usb_boot'
setenv bootcmd 'usb reset; run usb_bootcmd; usb stop; reset'

5. Restart the POGO-E02, and it will boot into Debian installer. Is that right?

All look good until this point.

Don't restart. The setenvs above are transient. At this point
boot

And it will boot into the Debian rootfs. This rootfs is already a full basic system running kernel 6.5.7-kirkwood-tld-1 (it is not a Debian installer).

And you should repeat the boot procedure above a couple times to see everything is OK. And then boot again, repeat the setenvs, but before boot do a saveenv:

setenv usb_set_bootargs 'setenv bootargs console=ttyS0,115200 root=LABEL=rootfs rootdelay=10 earlyprintk=serial'
setenv load_uimage 'ext2load usb 0:1 0x800000 /boot/uImage'
setenv load_uinitrd 'ext2load usb 0:1 0x2100000 /boot/uInitrd'
setenv usb_boot 'mw 0x800000 0 1; run load_uimage; run load_uinitrd; bootm 0x800000 0x2100000'
setenv usb_bootcmd 'run usb_set_bootargs; run usb_boot'
setenv bootcmd 'usb reset; run usb_bootcmd; usb stop; reset'
saveenv

and then boot
boot

Now it will boot automatically to the USB roofs when you power up or reboot.

bodhi,

At step 4 I had to do:

setenv eth1addr 00:00:00:00:00
setenv ipaddr 192.168.1.33
setenv serverip 192.168.1.20
setenv bootargs 'console=ttyS0,115200 root=LABEL=rootfs rootdelay=10 earlyprintk=serial'
mw 0x800000 0 1
tftpboot 0x800000 uImage
tftpboot 0x2100000 uInitrd
printenv
bootm 0x800000 0x2100000

The box starts booting, but I get an error message - something like "LABEL=rootfs not found". When I rebooted the box load the stock FW. Now I am about to do all the steps again, but if i have no success this time, I will pest here the full log, so it will be easier for anybody to help.

Re: Pogoplug Pogo-E02 can't flash Uboot
June 07, 2024 05:09PM
success!

I managed to boot into Debian. Thanks a lot, bodhi!
So fat I have not restarted the box, but I am assuming this will result in boot the stock OS.
So probably now I should flash newer uboot to the device? Can I do that from Debian itself, or I should do it thru the serial console?

I get this, and I am not sure if I should continue:

root@debian:/tmp# /usr/sbin/nandwrite -s 786432 /dev/mtd0 uboot.2016.05-tld-1.environment.img
Writing data to block 6 at offset 0xc0000

Re: Pogoplug Pogo-E02 can't flash Uboot
June 07, 2024 07:16PM
Kiro,

Here is what I wrote but forgot to hit the "post message" button :)

There are 2 problems.

1. I missed your first problem in your post above.

Quote

1. I should plug an empty 8+ GB USB flash drive into a Linux PC, and run:
fdisk /dev/sdb
mke2fs -j /dev/sdb1

You also need to label the partition rootfs as said in the instruction

Quote

1. Format a new USB drive with a single Ext3 partition, and label it rootfs. This step should be done at Linux command line using fdisk, mkfs.ext3 (don't use GUI or gparted). Once you have booted the box, then you could try GPT partition and/or Ext4.

e2label /dev/sdb1 rootfs

2. The 2nd problem is with the DTB. As said in the instruction, you need to replace kirkwood-goflexnet.dtb with the DTB for this Pogo E02 box.

Quote

4. (Stock u-boot only) Create uImage with embedded DTB for booting with older u-boots (2012 or earlier). Skip this step if you have installed the latest U-Boot for Kirkwood (or are installing this u-boot at the same time, or running kwboot with latest u-boot image).

Please replace kirkwood-goflexnet.dtb below with the correct DTB name for your box (see the folder /media/sdb1/boot/dts for the exact spelling of your Kirkwood box name).

Generate the uImage with DTB embedded inside:
cd /media/sdb1/boot
cp -a zImage-6.5.7-kirkwood-tld-1 zImage.fdt
cat dts/kirkwood-goflexnet.dtb >> zImage.fdt
mv uImage uImage.orig
mkimage -A arm -O linux -T kernel -C none -a 0x00008000 -e 0x00008000 -n Linux-6.5.7-kirkwood-tld-1 -d zImage.fdt uImage
sync

So repeat Step 4 above with the Pogo E02 DTB

cat dts/kirkwood-pogo_e02.dtb >> zImage.fdt

You should flash u-boot and the default envs image in Debian. The instruction was written for flashing in Linux. Remember to check for bad blocks. If you see anything not expected, don't reboot, and post the question here with the log of what you did.

bodhi,

Actually I was made a typo - rooFTs. When corrected, everything came into place. Thanks!
Also I decided to proceed flashing uboot, and (somehow) manage to do it. I am not quite sure it is 100% correct, but it works. So thank you a lot.

The stock OS was automatically mounting USB drives and makes them accessible thru the network. Now I need to find a way to repeat that, or to install some webUI for easily managing storage...

udev

WOW, thanks a lot! You are great guys!

I spot that transmission's behavior is kind of strange. I have set a 2048 KB/s limit, and when I add new job it starts to download at approximately that speed 1.7-1.8 MB/s. But it regularly drops to 0 KB/s. So far I was unable to understood the pattern. What I'm observing is that it downloads with about 2 MB/s for a minute or so, after that it drops to 0 MB/s for about the twice that time, then again speeds up to 2 MB/s and so on. A 600 MB file is transferring about 30-40 minutes, when it suppose to take something like 5-6 min. So far I have never use the box for other than sharing storage, so I am not aware if that is due to a hardware limitations, or misconfiguration on my side?

There is not enough info to say why it has this behaviour. The pure network performance for this box is very good (800Mbs-900Mbs). But it has a lot of other limitation: The biggest limitation is it has only USB ports, and 256MB RAM. The drop-off in speed might also be CPU maxing out. Or swapping to USB disk occurs.

Look in the Wiki thread for some hints in tuning
