Upgrade bootcode

Upgrade bootcode

Postby FarVoice » 23 Oct 2010, 19:15

Well that's all. Nothing ventured, nothing gained:)
Now I am the owner of bootcode 23 - thanks magpies, crows and other birds.
Recipe:
1. Download attached file, unzip and rename boot-ASUS-PAL-V23.bin to boot.bin
2. Run the TFTP server (I used tftpd32 http://tftpd32.jounin.net/), copy boot.bin to of tftp server directory.
3. Plug a serial cable to player, entry to REALTEK ROM Monitor - press ESC and hold, turn the power cord to player.

And them do next:
3.1. Configure the network. I have a server 192.168.0.1, then the player will be 192.168.0.2
Code: Select all
set ipaddr 192.168.0.2
set gateway 192.168.0.1
set subnetmask 255.255.255.0

3.2. Download bootloader to player and run it
Code: Select all
fread tftp://192.168.0.1/boot.bin 0x80100000
go 0x80100000

3.3. Clear player's NAND storage
Code: Select all
erase -m

4. Turn off the player, insert the stick with the firmware (I use the HD2 FW beta from Jarre)
Turn on the player, admire the process of firmware.

Everything. I assembled the player and I hope nevermore will dismantle of it.

2. In http://pinouts.ru/CellularPhonesCables.shtml you can find pinouts of your cable. You need to connect to the player Rx, Tx and Gnd.
3. Very often the data cable from the phone, powered not from the USB port and from the phone.
To check the cables needed to connect it to the rx tx, but between the gnd and vcc can apply 3.3V to the battery (for example, 3V from computer) or other external power source. Follow the polarity!
If there is no response when connecting to a terminal program (PUTTY), then the problem is 90% power, and perhaps confused rx, tx.

Can you check your "English" version of the zip file please, as only 465 K downloads?

Ah, I see FarVoice. That explains why your thread web pages are not refreshing properly. There is a very long delay when updating some pages. Strangely, some pages are just fine!

Well FarVoice thank you again :)

I now have BootCode 23 too!

Finally, I can load Jarre's beta without bricking my O!Play :D

Please ask if you would like some code to be tested :)

John

BTW, I did my updates from my mac, as I'm not a windows user.

is this bootcode modded from PBO bc23? POWERKEY_IRRP=0xE51AB649 which is the code for power button for PBO.
For Asus O!Play should be POWERKEY_IRRP=0xA956686C

I am really surprised you have done all this stuff without such a cable!

See http://minimodding.com/

& search for serial cable.

In fact, there's one here:

http://minimodding.com/tiki-view_blog_p ... al%20cable

Basically you need to buy a serial to usb converter cable. There are lots on Amazon & Ebay.
