NAND Testing - 05-25 Update: New LK, Recovery.img, Kernel Updates through Recovery

THIS IS FOR TESTING ONLY. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO INSTALL THIS IF YOU DON'T KNOW HOW TO GET INTO BOOTLOADER MODE AND FLASH A ROM FROM THE SD CARD.

Announcements

We are currently replacing Tinboot with LK for boot. This will give us fastboot and many other enhancements and fixes to make our device more like a native Android device. This has already fixed some issues with GSM phones, sleep modes, and a few other things. The current issue being worked on is the power button not working (possible GPIO issue).

Introduction

This thread tracks the most recent NAND development. A huge thanks to [ACL] and WoZZeR999 for dedicating time to NAND development for us, and again, thanks to Jonpry, PHH, stinebd, and the rest of #htc-linux for their contributions. It's truly amazing what these guys have done for us, so be sure to show them your appreciation

The original NAND boot testing thread can be found here:
http://forum.ppcgeeks.com/tp2-androi...tilt2-fix.html

File Repository

Autobuild files can be found here: Index of /files/
The LK directory will contain the latest LK Bootloader and boot image code.
The rhodium_nand directory contains the latest kernels
The XDAndroid directory contains the latest OS files and updates (including the root update)
Note: We often disable autobuild when extremely experimental code is submitted, so this may not always be up to date but should be more stable than content we post in the threads.

Latest Files
LK Bootloader: http://htcdevs.wirelesstcp.net/files...NORECOVERY.NBH
Recovery Image: http://htcdevs.wirelesstcp.net/files/LK/recovery.img
05-22 Kernel: http://htcdevs.wirelesstcp.net/files...nel-update.zip
FRX06 OS Files: http://htcdevs.wirelesstcp.net/files...RX6/update.zip
Optional - FRX06 Root: http://htcdevs.wirelesstcp.net/files...oot-Update.zip

Installation Procedure

Obtain Install Files
You need 4 files to get NAND up and running:
LK Bootloader NBH
Recovery.img
Kernel
OS Files

Install Directions
1) Set up your computer to use fastboot: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=532719
2) Flash your phone with the LK Bootloader NBH
3) Copy recovery.img to your fastboot/adb folder
4) Open bash/command prompt and run fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
5) If successful, type fastboot reboot, and hold the Power Button as your phone boots
6) Your phone should boot into recovery, and there you can apply the various update.zip files in this order:
- FRX06 Update.zip
- Kernel-Update.zip
- Root-Update.zip

To navigate in recovery, use volume up/down (or up/down on keyboard) to change selection, then use End Call key (or Enter on keyboard) to make a selection.

Here's a video from ACL


Work in Progress
Panel init/power down
No data on first boot
Youtube app has issues
GSM can boot with no rild arguments (no data)

Not Working at all
Camera
No bluetooth
No 3.5mm headphone jack

Re: NAND Boot File Repository

Frequently Asked Questions

What is NAND booting?
NAND booting uses code on the NAND to boot directly into Android without having Windows Mobile on the device. Currently, we have the kernel and initrd in XIP, and four partitions: recovery, data, system, and cache.

How is NAND different than Haret?
Other than the fact that all files are running from the internal memory, NAND uses cmdline from Tinboot code instead of using startup.txt. This means you cannot change force_cdma or other settings like you can with Haret without recompiling. Also, NAND is a different kernel than the one used for Haret, so some commits on NAND may be ahead of Haret and some commits may not have made it over to us yet.

Where are the Android files stored and how do I update them?
Modules are stored in the data partition and are symlinked with /system/lib/modules. Every kernel update will also require a modules update which will be applied through the use of androidupdate.tgz in the /sdcard/andboot folder. Kernel updates will be applied through recovery, and modules will probably be handled at the same time.

My battery drained and now my phone is stuck in a boot cycle! AHHHHHH!
There are two different causes of this. If your phone died while in Android, the fix is quick and easy:
1) Unplug the USB cable, then remove the battery
2) Put the battery back in, and plug the USB cable back in
3) Let it charge for 5 - 10 minutes (it will vibrate like it is starting, ignore this)
4) Unplug the USB cable, then remove the battery
5) Put the battery back in, and start the phone

If you lost power while booting, the kernel may attempt to restart every time you plug the cable in (not confirmed this is the real cause yet). The only known solution to this is incremental charging of a few seconds at a time. Basically, follow the above steps, but you have to remove power every 5 - 10 seconds or so before it starts the kernel back up again. This sucks, and ACL is trying to reproduce so he can figure out how to fix it.

Kernel Status


FRX05 Build Status


Haret Console and ADB
This is going to be quick and ugly since I have to hit the sack. I'm assuming most of you are running Windows, so I'm going to start from there.

HaretConsole - http://dl.dropbox.com/u/11790134/Har...kageForWin.zip
Download, unzip, and connect your phone in ActiveSync mode.
On the phone, browse to Haret.exe and make sure there is no startup.txt or default.txt file in the same directory.
Run Haret.exe on the phone, and click Listen for Connections
Now, on your computer, run the batch file for haretconsole, and it should connect.
Until I get a chance to explain things, you can find details on commands here: http://www.htc-linux.org/wiki/index..../Documentation

ADB Drivers - http://dl.dropbox.com/u/11790134/usb_driver.zip
First we need to unzip the drivers and connect your phone to the computer (must be at least booting into Android or in Android).
Now, open Device Manager (right click on Computer, click Manage, then click Device Manager)
You should see several unkown devices including one named XDA.
Right click on XDA, click Update Driver, click Browse, then click "Let me pick...", then click Have Disk.
Now browse to the unzipped drivers, and force it to use the ADB Interface driver. Say yes to any warnings.

You are now set to use ADB. I highly recommend checking out Droid Explorer from http://de.codeplex.com. This will let you run console and a lot more against your phone when it is in Android.

Re: NAND Boot File Repository

I'll be happy to test whatever you need.

Problem is... I have a RHOD500 so no help there on the tinboot for other devices.

I would be telling them they have a bricked compass.

Anyway, I'm about ready to pull the latest build even if it sucks and play with it.

I'd love to get in there and help but I'm no programmer/dev.

Re: NAND Boot File Repository

I've put together a FAQ with what I could think of for now. If you have any other information that you guys think would be particularly helpful, let me know. I do plan on putting together a step by step for flashing and what files do what. I also plan on compiling a list of useful commands for debugging (like dmesg >> /sdcard/log.txt)

a good tester is worth 2 good programmers. So test on my good man, your feedback is like gold to us.
