Aaaaaa HA!  OK so success now but let me tell you why! What the hell is going on here?

At 1:00 PDT I downloaded the files from  https://github.com/naobsd/rkutils
Using the built in Safari web browser in Ubuntu.  I downloaded it as a .zip.

Then after spend a long time wondering why -k option did not work I just didn't think about downloading it again.  I mean come on.... why right?

Now really.... and I mean really..... I JUST RIGHT NOW DOWNLOADED IT AGAIN at 6:50 PDT. I got a different package! WTH?  Is this possible? 

I opened rkcrc.c and see the code is different than what I got earlier today.  I swear guys really and I am not kidding.  I can upload to my server the zip file I got at 1:00 to the one I just got now so you can see it.  They are different!

I thought github was version controlled or something?

Please... tell me what the hell happened?

 

Anyway, ttz642t... I am not sure if to apologize to you or not?  Did you update github since this post?  Bottom line is it now works straight up and the reason why is the download from github is different than before.  Sorry ttz642t for complaining but this has me now very puzzled. 
I am not going to accuse anything right now but funny how since I brought this up here, all of a sudden the download from github is giving me the proper package?

I dunno..... maybe I am loosing it.  Whatever.... But talk about being pissed off!  Well I am..... Just a little after spending so much time thinking I was doing something wrong.... Yell

Sorry about those github problems, looks like their versionning has gone crazy Confused

It may be worth to include in the WIKI a package of rkutils that we know that works, together with the binaries, like I did here: http://www.arctablet.com/assets/tools/Firmware/Rockchip_CPU_based/rkutils-bin.tgz

(post #5).

 

Happy to see that you have it fixed.

No I didn't touch the rkcrc code, it was written by FUKAUMI Naoki. I prefixed mine rksp to differentiate it from FUKAUMI's (I'm not assuming any credit for his work).

I do remember comming across two versions of rkcrc, google'd and here it is :

It looks to be an early version, the version I pointed to was the newer version I came across:

I think you simply used the 1st version and perhaps when compiling the second version the first was located in a path as defined in your PATH environment.

The tools appear to of been uploaded by FUKAUMI Naoki on 25th Nov 2011.

 

In Linux the type command will tell you where the executable command is located.

 

I like to keep the binaries I write in my private bin directory in mh hoke, ie ~/bin

stevep@i5:~$ cd /home/stevep/tmp
stevep@i5:~/tmp$ ls -l
-rwxrwxr-x 1 stevep stevep 14231 2012-01-25 00:43 rkcrc
-rw-rw-r-- 1 stevep stevep  2810 2012-01-25 00:21 rkcrc.c
-rw-rw-r-- 1 stevep stevep  4607 2012-01-25 00:34 rkcrc.h

stevep@i5:~/tmp$ cp rkcrc ~/bin/
stevep@i5:~/tmp$ type rkcrc
bash: type: rkcrc: not found
stevep@i5:~/tmp$ echo $PATH
/usr/lib/lightdm/lightdm:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/games
stevep@i5:~/tmp$ export PATH=~/bin:$PATH
stevep@i5:~/tmp$ type rkcrc
rkcrc is /home/stevep/bin/rkcrc

 

BTW: Glad it's all sorted out now, I'll make a note on my wiki to use the latest code, typing the command with no parameters will show wheter or not Kernel & Parameters are supported:

 

stevep@i5:~/tmp$ rkcrc
usage: rkcrc [-k|-p] infile outfile

Bob,

Do you now see the beauty of a wiki:

Don't have to trawl through 35 (and growing) posts and figure out which is correct / usefull and ensure you've resolved any issues in posts.

I will agree with that.  Finding anything useful on XDA is a nightmare!  You have to weed through a ton of posts not related to what your looking for.

Exactly why I don't like forums.

 

In the days of usenet people would create an FAQ and periodically post it, that's what the wiki replaces.

Admin,

And a ludite I know 🙂 , and Windowz advocate has confirmed my Linux rom update works (isn't that right PK ?).

 

At least I can spell Luddite !  Cool

 

ttz642t's scripts work (currently have issue mounting MicroSD & USB, haven't decided where the problem here is) but user-friendly they ain't.  I gather this is being worked on, if it isn't sorted soon, I might have to do it myself.

 

Cheers,

Txt compression 🙂

 

Anyway, I reinstalled rom, it also failed for SDcard & usb devices, fix was:

 

Settings -> About Device -> Startup Wizard

 

Power off and then restart with SDCard & USB flash ejected, only insert AFTER system fully up.

 

Market also failed, couldn't connect, here's how I fixed it:

 

Connect to tablet with adb (or run local terminal), locate where the imei is stored

 

# busybox find /data -iname 'imei'

/data/misc/imei

# ls -l /data/misc/imei

-rwxrwxrwx system system 15 2012-01-30 10:08 data.dat

# mv /data/misc/imei/data.dat /data/misc/imei/data.dat-old

 

Go try market again, I'm in !

 

You could use a browser with root access and just delete the file.

In my recent testing just removing or emptying the imei file does not always solve the problem.  I also believe that in some cases the error is real and google servers are not responding or something.  I know that sounds odd but once I came up and had the "cannot establish a reliable data connection".  I had to run to dinner before I could try some things to fix it and it worked and logged in after I got back!

This is the third time I've managed to get in this way (two different tablets). Perhaps as the IMEI number is the same google recognise it being use too many times ?

 

When I first experienced this I also left it a while (overnight) without success, then I spotted postinigs about changing the IMEI so I tried by moving it out of the way so I could put it back if it didn't help.

 

It may or may not work, but it's quick to try.

I just tried the CyanogenMod.7.for.ARNOVA10G2.alpha.1.img rom, it didn't work !

 

Re-Flashed your v1.2 image.

 

Installed ArcTols 0.57. rebooted, No market...

 

Closed market, renamed imei file, reloaded market, entered account details, bingo, market !

In the works, hope to post it on Sunday sometime...

Just needs path to rkflashtool & adb (if you want fast install for apk's).

Should even work on Windowz, although I haven't tried it (and probably wont).

I've re-written the rkcrc in perl and given time I'll also re-write rkflashtool in perl to have a single self contained script.

 

So here's what it looks like (may add additional options):

 

$ rksp
rksp tablet flasher Copyright (C) 2012 ttz642t@gmail.com

Reading config file...
adb path is: /home/stevep/bin/adb
rkflashtool path is: /home/stevep/bin/rkflashtool

0) Exit program
1) Flash tablet
2) Read tablet
3) Reboot tablet
4) Install favorite apps
Options ?

Looks good Steve, great job, as usual Wink

Great to see you really made it easy to flash G2 tablets under Linux.

Keep up the good work, I'll try to test it next week.
