Let me look at that again. I think there is an error on my part.

Cool indeed :)

Now you should try setting some variable to test. See if the checksum and the env size really works.

fw_setenv test 'CV test env'

Then reboot.

Ok, trying kwboot now:

-I only have a 32bit Linux box ATM, so I got kwboot sources from GitHub "https://github.com/dns42/u-boot"; and compiled it on my box "gcc kwboot.c" (renamed a.out to kwboot)

-got uboot.2015.10-tld-1.sheevaplug.mtd0.kwb from suggested link "uboot.2015.10-tld-1.sheevaplug.bodhi.tar, md5 0e3ac5428ee25dd812a77cc9cb541758"

-turned off T5325

-executed on my Linux box (with serial cable connected to T5325):
./kwboot -t -B 115200 /dev/ttyUSB0 -b uboot.2015.10-tld-1.sheevaplug.mtd0.kwb -p

-turned on t5325

As a result it just booted the HP stock uboot and then the kernel on USB, see log below.

kwboot is sort of acting as a serial console program now, is see
cveit@cvnbdelli8600:~$ ps -ef | grep kwboot
cveit     3664  3054  0 10:41 pts/3    00:00:00 ./kwboot -t -B 115200 /dev/ttyUSB0 uboot.2015.10-tld-1.sheevaplug.mtd0.kwb
cveit     3856  3791  0 10:58 pts/0    00:00:00 grep --color=auto kwboot
cveit@cvnbdelli8600:~$

I have a root shell now on the t5325, can do stuff.

Did I miss something / not do something?
What was supposed to happen?

cveit@cvnbdelli8600:~/Downloads/t5323$ ./kwboot -t -B 115200 /dev/ttyUSB0 uboot.2015.10-tld-1.sheevaplug.mtd0.kwb

Ah, that's bad news! However, let's go through the checklist

- Is your Linux box ARM? if it is then use the one I uploaded:

Quote

To download ARM kwboot binary for UART booting at Dropbox:
kwboot
md5:
0efd011bdb244436e432a8de33e639a1

2. Did you check the bootROM version in serial console

md ff00003c

3. If the box has UART booting, then kwboot will handshake with the box before it tries to load u-boot. And if the handshake was sucessful, then it will send the image. This is an example of what should happen:

./kwboot -t -B 115200 /dev/ttyUSB0 -b uboot.2015.10-tld-2.nsa310s.mtd0.kwb -p
Sending boot message. Please reboot the target.../

No, its x86, an old DELL Laptop Pentium M 32bit. That's why I compiled kwboot from C.

Well, kwboot does handshake, as I can see all the UBOOT logs and kernel logs, and even allows me to login to the t5325 ("kwboot is acting like a serial terminal program",
as you see abobe I am now on stock HP uboot prompt ("HP>>).

[EDIT: I should have read the man page of kwboot, it clearly says so:
Additionally, this program implements a minimal terminal mode...]

I type boot, and then it goes on to boot Linux, comes to login prompt and I can login, all still "in kwboot":

EDIT:
I also tried using fw_setenv, alas fail:

Not so cool eh? ;-)

(I did not try rebooting to see if fw_setenv changes are persistent, as a subsequent fw_printenv says "not defined".)

This is neither good or bad. It means we just don't have an indicator if UART booting is supported.

Yes, it is a regular terminal when it could not handshake. Handshake here means exchange xmodem protocol handshake with the bootROM.

Thanks :)

Not good! but that's OK, since you can use serial console to setenv.

Hopefully, perhaps you might have missed the window. You could try to execute kwboot after connecting the power (like within 1 second). Play with this timing to see if it behaves differently.

Looking at the log you posted, it is not right that it did not display the banner, did it?

But taking a step back and looking at the overall situation so far:

-the stock HP uboot env can be modified from uboot itself: good

-the stock HP uboot can be set to boot from USB: good

-you provided a very well working kernel 4.4.0-kirkwood: very good!
(so far stable, good network throughput, I will continue to test)

-along with a root filesystem that can apt-get updated and all: very good!

-so already now I could use the thing as a better replacement for my dockstar fileserver

Or do you think that the stock uboot really is

UPDATE: BTW, this stock u-boot is horrible, for rebooting. Looks like it keeps rewriting the envs to NAND at each boot. -bodhi

I do not see a NAND write every boot time?

I guess a similar change to uboot is needed like this change to fw_env.config, right?

@Gravelrash,

How is your T5325 project? is the serial working?

Good Morning Bodhi!

Yesterday I had a quick look at the uboot sources in your Github - I wanted to try to setup a build environment for u-boot.
But I need to read up a lot on that, linux crossbuilding etc.

Do you maybe have a pointer to a guide on that..?

And I also did not find my way around the uboot sources really, I thought that maybe I could find the files and configuration for the nand access, but I got lost, I did see dirs like board/Marvel, /nand /spi etc but I got lost...

I'm curious to try kwbooting uboot's and see setenv going to work, and I also saw that uboot seems to support a sort of netbooting like ipxe does, is that right?

Cheers

Hi CV,

Let's take a breather!

I think we are at the point that I've learned enough about this box to be able to start working on the new u-boot. It would not have been enough info without looking at the new kernel running like it is now.

What you can do to benefit everybody is running the new kernel and check out the system to see if it does what it suppose to do with memory, cpu, peripherals,... see if there is anything out of the ordinary.

I'm starting to build the new u-boot, and it won't be straight forward! so it will take a little while depending how much free time I have. Probably by the time Gravelrash and bobafetthotmail got their serial consoles working, I'll have a test build for everybody to try :)

Oh awesome!!!!

kwboot is supported. Very good. I like unbrickable boxes.

>I also saw that uboot seems to support a sort of netbooting like ipxe does, is that right?

yes http://kernelnomicon.org/?p=327

It's useful for development purposes (if you make a firmware for your device) but it's not going to be much use for us as the "firmware" here is Debian ARM and that works well already.

This. Audio jacks, GPU/Video, buttons and led and the buzzer.

Hi Bobba!
I'll test these things, and report.
Sofar I can say that it works stable as a fileserver, tftp, smb, nfs, isci target.
X and sound not yet tested, will do.

It's true that Debian with new kernel runnning is good enough for a lot of users. However, stock u-boot can not support Ext4, large 2TB+ HDD, SNTP,... a lot of modern features are missing. The box can't run as well as $200 NAS yet :)

BTW, while sheevaplug is a good u-boot for UART booting purpose, it is not a correct u-boot.

Thanks.


>It's true that Debian with new kernel runnning is good enough for a lot of users.

He was talking of a u-boot feature that allows it to fetch uImage and stuff then boot from the network.

I should have been more clear, I only wanted to say that it's not useful for us as Debian (the "firmware") is probably mostly ok as-is, while u-boot testing has to be done by UART-boot anyway.

Ah I see. Stock u-boot should already provided tftp for that purpose.

Hello all,

Not read this trail for a while as i have been working on some other stuff - mostly work related - sometimes being an "inveterate fiddler of kit" lands me with a backlog of other peoples stuff to sort out.

Cleared the decks now, so Tuesday, I will be reading this post in depth and offering feedback as i can. I have finally got my serial console in and working well i had to make seven more of them... but that is another story.

The GPL source is supposed to be in here. I'm still looking, it's not easy to find the GPL tarball!

Update:

I think this worth looking into:

Next post will be after I attempt to do kwboot. what other information do you require?



EDIT : 1

Downloaded the precompiled x64 binary from DavyGravy and placing it in the /bin directory

obtained the sheevaplug u-boot from here
http://forum.doozan.com/read.php?3,12381 & https://bitly.com/1WKY9tj

then running the commands as written below from a cold started unit
kwboot  -t -B 115200 /dev/ttyUSB0 -b uboot.2015.10-tld-1.sheevaplug.mtd0.kwb -p

yields the following result
kwboot $ kwboot  -t -B 115200 /dev/ttyUSB0 -b uboot.2015.10-tld-1.sheevaplug.mtd0.kwb -p
Sending boot message. Please reboot the target.../
-^Z
[5]+  Stopped                 kwboot -t -B 115200 /dev/ttyUSB0 -b uboot.2015.10-tld-1.sheevaplug.mtd0.kwb -p

No handshake occured or attempt to send the file across xmodem, modified the command to remove the -p to see what happened

kwboot  -t -B 115200 /dev/ttyUSB0 -b uboot.2015.10-tld-1.sheevaplug.mtd0.kwb
Sending boot message. Please reboot the target...\
\^Z
[6]+  Stopped                 kwboot -t -B 115200 /dev/ttyUSB0 -b uboot.2015.10-tld-1.sheevaplug.mtd0.kwb

So it looks like on my particular unit that kwboot is not possible.... AND/OR there is a variance between CV's and my uboot's

Next update will be results on creating a bootable usb and amending statements to suit

generated image as per below - i move the working files into a working folder them move them back - couple of extra steps, (but its the way i work)

Right thats me for today, as I am now out of time, any pointers as to where we go from here is greatly appreciated. from what i can gather in comparison to the other forum member who has a working kwboot and bootable system, i have either missed something glaringly obvious or i have a different revision of the uboot which MUST be blatted away as soon as possible.

Nice :) where is this from? so you soldered the SATA port?

1. Regarding kwboot, sometime it is just a little picky. Try it the "Pogo V4 way":

- Execute the kwboot command (with option -p).
- Power up the T5325.
- Watch the spinning /, when it changes speed (slower), Control-C to abort kwboot, and then:

A) Up-arrow to recall kwboot command and execute it again

If you see the message
Sending boot image...
  0 % [+++++++++++++++++xmodem: Bad message

Repeat A for as mamy times as you can until it handshakes.


2. USB rootfs:

- Boot with serial consoll again, interrupt it

usb start
usb part

See if the drive is initialized and u-boot shows the partition on it. If it does not initialize, then use a different USB thumb (preferrably Sandisk brand).

> Nice :) where is this from? so you soldered the SATA port?

the guy hacking the second Sata port had to desolder a ssd controller to free up the second sata (easier than it looks like).

It seems this box has a "SSD controller" soldered to one of the 2 sata lines, it controls the onboard 512MB of flash (the capacity stated in that boot log seems to confirm that).

I wonder where the heck the u-boot is actually stored since it cannot stay inside that flash. I think I've seen a EEPROM somewhere on the board.

hmmm... probably this tells us there is 1MB flash somewhere.

[1024kB@f8000000] Flash:  1 MB

bobafetthotmail,

There is a SPI flash of 1MB. That's where u-boot is.

Very interesting!

This is a pretty good box if you can get it for <= 30 USD used.

bobafetthotmail,

How is your serial console? I'll have a test u-boot binary pretty soon.

On board video and audio +1

Hackable SATA port +.5

10/100 Ethernet -1

Sheevaplug is better if you wanna stay with Marvell -but no video :(

IMO, HP T5740 thin client is best cheapest low power box with expansion options. Not Marvell though.....

Agree, it is a minus with 100Mbs Ethernet. But the Audio/Vido alone worth a lot, if you do use it for this purpose. Otherwise with the Sheevaplug, you'll have to spend quite a bit more for USB Video/Audio adapter. So it is not a NAS.
