Hi Andrejt,

yeah - the board looks familiar. :)
So it *MAY* be an AX206-chip (I can not see any markings on the chip itself).
BUT: the firmware was not build with the Buildwin SDK for AX206. Identify.py needs a fw build with this SDK to extract lcd-access & init routines. Without these infos it's not possible to build a custom fw for your dpf.
You could try to flash all existing custom fws one after the other and see if one will work. But there is only a remote chance that this will do the trick...

Sorry again.

This is a picture frame that was hacked 4 years ago with the help of hackfin (http://tech.section5.ch/news/?p=77) and has since been lying in a cupboard. It does not seem to work with the current distribution of the dpf-ax toolkit. So I would like to upgrade it to a more modern firmware, if possible. See below for command output of lcd4linux and identify.py.

@ Victorclaessen

That's an easy one. :)
Please try attached fw.

Do you have a name for this dpf - else it will stay acme_8...

That did indeed do the trick. Thanks a whole bunch!

I think hackfin used to call this device 'pink'. It looks exactly like the one on his website (see attached picture), although mine has black plastic. The front simply reads 'Digital Photo Frame'.

As I said: an easy one. :)

"Pink" was a generic name, which I removed a while ago.
So it will stay "acme_8".

That was quick, the firmware works great, contrast and brightness range is fine, thanks!
One minor issue is that 'off' from the menu doesn't turn off the device, it seems to do the same as 'reboot'. Not a big problem as it's going to connected permanently anyway.

Dear superlelchi,your firmware work perfectly when the dpf is attached to a pc but, when i attach it to my router asus n55u with entware packages I obtain the following errors then the frame reset itself. I tried various version of lcd4linux, all with the same effect. Do you have some suggestions ?
Thanks

@Fireport

Your lcd4linux version on the router is out of date. It has an old driver which may not be compatible with the current dfp firmware.
The new dpf-driver (written by yours truly) was added in rev 1199. The router has rev 1193.
Hope you can find a current version or compile it yourself...

Please try attached fw. Make sure brightness & contrast setting work.

Do you have a name / supplier for this dpf? Else it will stay acme_9.

Sorry. Did not know that lcd4linux is a bit shy to show it's real version. ;)

If the driver is okay, may be it is the usual problem - bad USB connection?
You know that the cable that comes with the dpf is crap?
Have you tried another USB port and / or a shorter / better USB cable?
Also it may be a power problem. You should try to connect the dpf over a powered USB-Hub.

Flash written to file 'fulldump_win_20150428-130840.bin'.

This in no known firmware!

Sorry, no matching dpf found.

I bought it at aliexpress

It would be nice if you can help me to hack it.

Hi,

as identify.py said: "This in no known firmware!".

A look at your fw-dump shows "AX208 SDK V3.0" - so another one that is AX208 based, not AX206. And dpf-ax only works with AX206 chips based on the Buildwin SDK for this chip.
Sorry, nothing I can do.

Hi superelchi,

I bought a DPF because somewhere it was listed to work with the hack.

Now I have two problems:

1. DPF is not known (should be winplus compatible)
2. I can not get the DPF in bootloader mode, as there is no reset button...;-(

Here a direct link to the DPF: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B006G0CJW0/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Does anyone know how to get the display in bootloader mode?

Thx in advance

newmats

Hi Newmats,

Identify.py says::
 $ ./identify.py -d fulldump_20150515-132201.bin 
Looking for firmware.............: Not found.

This in no known firmware!

Sorry, no matching dpf found.
Dpf-ax only works with AX206 chips based on the Buildwin SDK for this chip. Your dpf is not an AX206 or not based an this sdk.
Looks like 2.4" dpfs with AX206 are no longer available. :(
Sorry, nothing I can do here.

But I can help you with the missing reset button:
- Remove the battery (see http://geekparadise.de/2011/04/pearl-status-display-akku-raus/) - it's in German but there are pictures ;)
- Hold the menu button and connect the dpf to USB. Works like reset + menu.

EDIT: I will remove the link for the winplus - the sold dpf on this page is a "new" model. Sadly not compatible with dpf-ax.

Looks like all newer devices are based on AX208. I got one and now I'm stuck with it. I can't even get into bootloader mode with reset + menu.

From the hardware specs of the AX208 (first hit on Google) it doesn't look that different from AX206. What's required to make this work?
