Need help/advice on brand new pogoplugV4
November 01, 2017 12:48PM
Hi all,

I am working on installing U-Boot and debian on a brand new pogoplug V4
Before flashing new U-Boot, a few lines are worrying me in the logs:

 1.010000] Scanning device for bad blocks
[    1.010000] Bad eraseblock 4 at 0x000000080000
[    1.050000] Bad eraseblock 697 at 0x000005720000

full log from Uboot to login including printenv and help from stock U-Boot is in the attached file.

I am not really shure I can safely flash new U-Boot, any help/advice will be appreciated before I brick it !

I just need to upgrade U-Boot in order to boot from SD card

thanks

Warning: what I advise below only applicable to your specific configuration (in case other users read this and would make a wrong assumption when their configuration is different).

You have the Pogo V4, therefore you have a rescue mechanism with serial console using kwboot (should things don't go as we expected). And more importantly, the bad block is the 5th one. So you could flash new u-boot. But let's me ask you a few more questions before you do that.

stef34280,

1. You do have serial console. So you should try to run kwboot first to make sure you have a rescue path

Important Note: If possible, try to test this boot image with UART booting before flashing to NAND. See davygravy's UART booting using kwboot instruction here in this thread. The latest u-boot image released here should be used for UART booting, if your box is the type that supports it (these do not: Dockstar, Pogo E02, iConnect).

Note: you will need a Linux box to run kwboot, it cannot not be run from Windows.


2. According to your bootlog, you are still booting with stock OS? Do you have plan to install the new rootfs Debian-4.12.1-kirkwood-tld-1-rootfs-bodhi.tar.bz2?

The kernel and rootfs thread:
https://forum.doozan.com/read.php?2,12096

If you intend to run stock OS then don't install new u-boot. It will not work.

3. In stock OS get this output and post here:

cat /proc/mtd
ls -l /dev/mtd*

Hi Bodhi and thank you for your help,

Serial console is working

kwboot is working. Had to try a dozen of times before I got a pogoV4 prompt in console (killing and restarting kwboot)

here is th output you asked for:

I do not plan to use stock OS, I plan to use your rootfs (already running on a goflexnet) to make a mpd based music server

I won't flash anything until you tell me to do so :)

That's the Pogo V4 quirks. A lot of time you need to control-C and then restart until the handshake occurs.

That will make it much easier.

Ok. Now are you in stock OS for Pogo V4 or Debian? You can start flashing in either environment.

But do not reboot. Because of the bad block is 5th block, your execution of flash_erase and nandwrite will show no error (only block 0 to 3 will be used). We need to confirm this to be the the expected result.

Please post the log of your execution of step 6 and 7 for review, before doing step 8.

Quote

6. Erase mtd0
flash_erase /dev/mtd0 0 4
Expected output:
Erase Total 4 Units
Performing Flash Erase of length 131072 at offset 0x60000 done

7. Write image to NAND

Among the nandwrite commands below, be extra careful and execute only one nandwrite command corresponding to your platform that you are installing to, using the kwb file that you have extracted in step 5. Please double check to make sure the file is for the correct platform. Especially the similar sounding names (e.g. nsa310s and nsa310 are different u-boots).

nandwrite /dev/mtd0 uboot.2017.07-tld-1.dockstar.mtd0.kwb
nandwrite /dev/mtd0 uboot.2017.07-tld-1.goflexhome.mtd0.kwb

Expected output:

Writing data to block 1 at offset 0x20000
Writing data to block 2 at offset 0x40000
Writing data to block 3 at offset 0x60000

Hi Bodhi,

before flashing, I have one more question.

I prepared my SD card with a fresh install of your rootfs.

If I do UART boot with the U-boot image from your dropbox (using the -p option) I can't boot into debian (I get an error message "machine type unsupported or so, didn't log it)
The same ocurs if I let the box do autoboot or if I go into the U-Boot prompt and type "boot".

I checked the printenv output and saw the dtb_file variable is set to "/boot/dts/kirkwood-pogo_v4" without extension
typing "setenv dtb_file kirkwood-pogo_v4.dtb" and then boot makes the box boot into debian

Is this normal or maybe my U-Boot file is corrupted, or anything else ?

here is the output of the pritenv command under U-Boot loaded with kwboot:

stef34280,

Indeed. That was my typo in the internal default envs :) usually we just flash the default envs image, which has the correct name for Pogo E02, so nobody noticed this yet.

Thanks for reporting this. I will make a note and correct it.

Yes, you have fixed it with
setenv dtb_file kirkwood-pogo_v4.dtb

Hi Bodhi,

I went through all the steps for flashing U-Boot from Debian booted with UART.

Here is the output of steps 6 and 7:

root@debian:/tmp# flash_erase /dev/mtd0 0 4
Erasing 128 Kibyte @ 7f5eaf5c00000064 --  4 % complete 

root@debian:/tmp# nandwrite /dev/mtd0 uboot.2017.07-tld-1.pogo_v4.mtd0.kwb 
Writing data to block 0 at offset 0x0
Writing data to block 1 at offset 0x20000
Writing data to block 2 at offset 0x40000
Writing data to block 3 at offset 0x60000
root@debian:/tmp#

Of course I did NOT eboot the box

That flash_erase output is OK. The later version seems to always output that only much. So you are good to go!

You can reboot. Watch serial console. After it booted into Debian, copy the and post the log here if you'd like me to review it.

I solved it this way:
I had previously made a uEnv.txt file tweaked with all the 'setenv' commands in step 8 (except for netconsole)
I took out the rootfs SD card and copied that file to /boot

With that the box boots fine.

Something appears now to be unclear to me:

I understood from that to do all the steps from 1 to 7 before rebooting so I did not made step 8 (flashing default envs)

The box boots fine but the envs seem messed.
Here are differents outputs of pritenv:

You've misunderstood this. Step 8 must be done.

Quote

Because the default envs image was not flashed.

Quote

> Warning: Bad CRC, using default environment

The CRC error above is because of that (the envs area in NAND was not flashed, so it has nothing in it, therefore the checksum is bad).

You had the right idea in using uEnv.txt to populate the envs with good values:

Now to make it stick. You need to either:

1. In Debian, flash the default envs image, starting from step 8 and then do step 9 to 11.

Or

2. Since you have a good uEnv.txt, you can boot with serial console, interrupt serial console, and

run bootcmd_uenv
and list the envs for sanity
printenv
look at these envs to make sure they are what you expected, and then
saveenv

And boot into Debian
boot
