Hi bodhi,

Thank you so much for helping. I now have rescued both my pogo-e02 and pogo-b01 with your uboot and rootfs. They are now running fine with netconsole set up. Just curiosity, for the V3 pogo-e02, will there be a 5.x.x kernel available in the future? As I mentioned earlier, there was a wifi stick I tried to use with them but I found that the 4.x.x kernel does not recognize it but the 5.x.x on the V2 machine does. Or is there anyway to copy some of the files (driver, firmware, not really sure what is needed) over from the 5.x.x kernel and put it in the 4.x.x machine so that it recognize the wifi stick?

Anyway, thanks a lot for your help.

There will not be kernel 5.5.x for Popo V3 OXNAS (your pogo-b01) in the near future. Probably there will be 4.14.x. The reason was stated in the release thread.

For Pogo E02, there is already kernel linux-5.5.1-kirkwood-tld-1.

That will need a new kernel. And backporting like that is probably not a simple task. You can post a new thread for Pogo V3 OXNAS Wifi driver. And I'll remember to investigate to see if I can include the Wifi driver in the kernel 4.4.x or 4.14.x when I release the next version for OXNAS boxes (Pogo V3).
