bodhi,

Still getting invalid image. I found when I use -p parameter, invalid image will appear. Maybe the version is too old? Can you upload the latest binary you have?

8086k,

The file was uploaded by bkallus. I've not rebuilt stock u-boot yet, so I used this u-boot image.

-p is correct. This is NAND image so the -p option must be used.

Look at the image information to make sure that it is in fact a u-boot image.

mkimage -l uboot-revI-128MbFlash.bin

Image Type:   MVEBU Boot from nand Image
Image version:1
Data Size:    541728 Bytes = 529.03 KiB = 0.52 MiB
Load Address: 00600000
Entry Point:  00680000

Run it:
kwboot -t -B 115200 /dev/ttyUSB0 -b uboot-revI-128MbFlash.bin  -p

I've reattached the image here, in case your previous download was bad.

bodhi,

I'm using kwboot which compiled in 2012. Have you tried to use kwboot on your mi424wr? I still get invalid image when using your attachment. If there is a newer version of kwboot, please post it.

bodhi,

Please post the log of your mi424wr rev i debian boot log. I can't make RTL8192CE work by changing the PCI-E port.

I notice there are three PCI-E ports in the bootlog if I enable both ports in DTS. This is very strange. I can't find any device except 88f6560 with lspci.

To recap the progress. Everything works, except Ethernet. Looks like I'm hitting an old mvneta bug, still investigating this issue from time to time.

I've attched the tarball for the DTB and DTS source here. The Aruba is not complete yet.

kwboot booting was done here:

I notice the uboot header of 88f6282 is different from the uboot header of 88f6560. Maybe the old version of kwboot(compiled in 2012) doesn't support 88f6560.

edit: I have downloaded the newer version of kwboot. Invalid image disappeared. But bootrom printed xmodem protocol error. What's that thing?

8086k,

When you see the "xmodem: Protocol error", do the following:

- Make sure the serial wires are far from the power cord (to avoid interference).

- When you see the protocol error, recall the kwboot command and immediately execute that. Repeat this quickly, as many time as needed.

This seems wrong

user@ubuntu:~$ sudo ./kwboot -t -B 115200 /dev/ttyUSB0 -b mtdblock1.bin -p

mtdblock1.bin does not seem to contain u-boot.

Check the header:
mkimage -l mtdblock1.bin

Mtdblock1 is the uboot. I have checked it. I have also tried mi424wr's uboot, it always print 'bad message'. So I think my kwboot binary is not good.

As usual, please post whatever you did, for confirmation.

mkimage -L mtdblock1.bin

kwboot binary that comes with the distro is always good. If you want to see it is running OK then do this:

- Connect serial console.

- Run kwboot on you Ubunt VM this way: become root, and execute the kwboot in terminal mode

apt-get install u-boot-tools
su -
kwboot -t -B 115200 /dev/ttyUSB0

And then power up the ZTE. You should be able to control serial console this way.

@8086k

If you really want to be sure about having the newest kwboot binary, you can compile it from source pretty easily.
Just clone the u-boot git repository and run this:
make defconfig
make tools-all
The kwboot binary will be in the tools directory.

That said, I'm sure the one in the Ubuntu repositories is fine.

I had the exact same problem that you're having when I was trying to kwboot my MI424WR-I. I even bought a new UART adapter. In the end, I couldn't get it to work. I'm curious about why it works for bodhi. On average, how many tries is it taking you?

I'm running kwboot from another ARM box (Zyxel NSA310S). It works immediately.

Perhaps you guys should try kwboot from another ARM box such as rPi.

Thanks, I installed ubuntu 20.04 and now kwboot can send the whole image. But F660 is still not booting from uart. When the transfer is done, my F660 resets and starts to boot from NAND flash. I have also tried mi424wr's uboot image, it stops responding when the transfer is done(this isn't strange).

bodhi,

The uboot of F660 is interesting, it's header is strange but it works on the NAND flash. I can't figure out any more information, I hope you can look at it sometime.

edit: Now the kwboot is working. I don't know why when I edited the uboot image at will, it booted succesfully from kwboot. That's unbelievable but it's truth.

As usual, to help future users who look to do the same thing.

Please post the log of what you did. And also post whatever the u-boot image you use to kwboot this F660 box.

How to boot ZTE F420/F460/F620/F660 with 88f6560 into u-boot through UART

This is the u-boot file that I used. I will do more research on it later, maybe I will improve it.
Use this file like following:
1,Install the latest version of Ubuntu(I'm using Ubuntu 20.04)

2,Use 'sudo apt install u-boot-tools' to install kwboot

3,Connect your F420/F460/F620/F660 to your Ubuntu PC using UART

4,Use 'sudo su' to switch to root mode

5,Use this command to boot your F420/F460/F620/F660
kwboot -t -B 115200 /dev/ttyUSB0 -b uboot-download.bin -p
(Replace ttyUSB0 with your UART device)

This will appear in the terminal if UART boot is successful.
root@ubuntu:/home/user# kwboot -t -B 115200 /dev/ttyUSB0 -b uboot-download.bin -p
Sending boot message. Please reboot the target...\

bodhi,

Can you understand assembly code of arm? I want to autoboot openwrt. Rebuild u-boot is impossible and counterfeiting kernel checksum is impossible too.

Exactly, I have the good backup of original firmware. I get 'No Version Available on Flash' only during using my openwrt and don't interrupt autoboot.

Set the envs as described in this post:

https://forum.doozan.com/read.php?2,78499,120544#msg-120544

Save the envs with savenv.

And then reboot.

When you see the u-boot banner

BootROM 1.34
Booting from NAND flash
BootROM: Image checksum verification PASSED

bodhi,

Have you tried kirkwood ethernet driver yet? I hope it will work. If not, you can choose to use the old armada driver on the new kernel or look at the patch of the driver source code.

I will soon post it. But I can't understand why you want it. U-boot envs can be set successfully and written to nand. I'm now using an env to boot openwrt more quickly. It doesn't affect uboot to boot stock firmware.

I have done some research on F660's pci-e device. Now I think the config in dts is correct but my rtl8192ce driver is not configured properly or isn't correct. I would like to upgrade the kernel version.

What is Fast back to back transfers? For PCI-E bus 1, it is disabled on stock firmware of f660, enabled on linux 3.14 kernel. According to the stock log, RTL8192CE is using PCI-E bus 1.

8086k,

I tried once and it did not work. The stock driver is really old and hard to tell, but it looks like the previous incarnation of mvneta (written by Marvell engineers). I did not spend much time on trying Kirkwood driver, though.

This is not possible. They are too different structurally.

OK. I don't need the bootlog. I only want to see exactly how the envs were saved or not saved with the original stock u-boot. The MI424WR-rev-I uses a different version of stock u-boot and it does not have limitation of saving bootcmd.

Unfortunatly, I cannot help with kernel 3.14 rtl8192ce driver. For the F660 PCIe, rtl8192ce should work immediately with new kernel (i.e linux-5.11.4-kirkwood-tld-1).

The only issue is Ethernet. Currently, the IRQ seems to be wrong systematically. Kirkwood IRQs and Armada IRQs are different, and I'm still not sure yet which path to take (either hacking it, or try to reconcile it the right way).

bodhi,

My F660 box's uboot is more complex. Bootcmd doesn't contain the command that copies the kernel to RAM. It is done before bootcmd. Then uboot will do a checksum on the kernel to decide whether to run bootcmd. If the checksum doesn't pass, uboot will just print 'No Version Available on Flash'. If the checksum passes, uboot will continue to run bootcmd. I'm still not sure if the uboot will set bootcmd to a fixed value before running it.

That's a dirty hack they did :) nothing complex about it. Usually we don't hard code this in u-boot.

You'll have answer to this question if you did what I asked before.

bodhi,

I can make it autoboot by changing a command string. But it will stop uboot from initializing the ethernet device. Finally, the ethernet won't work. How can I crack it by not changing the assembly code?

I'm analyzing uboot code with IDA pro(assembly code is so annoying), The checksum is in assembly code. I have found the function which print 'No Version Available On Flash'. I'm trying to modify it. Can you offer some help about signing the uboot image? I have tested and found that bootrom will check the checksum. Kwboot will do the checksum, but it can't save the image.

Try booting Debian on USB using Debian-5.2.9-kirkwood-tld-1-rootfs-bodhi.tar.bz2. I'm quite positive that rtl8192ce would work with my latest DTS (for the MI424WR-rev-I).

Use this Debian rootfs to test, it is easier to troubleshoot problems with Debian.
