Hello everyone! I got osmocom-bb running on a gta02 with a self-built Debian image. osmocon-bb was compiled natively on the gta02. Everything works great using: $ ./osmocon -i 13 -m romload -p /dev/ttySAC0 layer1.highram.bin as described at: http://bb.osmocom.org/trac/wiki/OpenMoko It bugs me, however, that the proprietary openmoko 11 firmware is still lingering in the baseband flash. So I would like to replace it permanently with the osmocom-bb layer 1 firmware. That didn't work so far. First, I attempted to use the FLUID binary to flash layer1.highram.bin. The manual firmware update that is described at: http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/Flashing_the_GSM_Firmware suggests to use the FLUID binary from the package: http://people.openmoko.org/joerg/calypso_moko_FW/fluid_0.0+svn20070817-r2_armv4t_eabi.ipk I tried to run: $ FLUID_PORT=/dev/ttySAC0 ./fluid.exe -oo -od13,13 -b 115200 -f layer1.highram.bin This gives me: FLUID Revision 2.27, (23 Aug 2004). Copyright Texas Instruments, 2001-2004. Reading image file: '/usr/local/src/osmocom-bb/src/target/firmware/board/gta0x/layer1.highram.bin'WARNING: Illegal hex line: ERROR(55): File format/syntax error I also played with the options but to no avail. So apparently fluid expects the firmware image to be in a particular format. Then I tried the osmoload utility. For that I started osmocon with: $ ./osmocon -i 13 -l /tmp/osmocom_loader -m romload -p /dev/ttySAC0 loader.highram.bin osmocon then says: Sending Calypso romloader beacon... On another console I then turned on the GSM device and tried to request information about flash using: $ ./osmoload -l /tmp/osmocom_loader finfo This gives me: Requesting flash layout info Query timed out. What am I doing wrong? Are there fundamental reasons why this cannot work? Any hints would be much appreciated! Thanks, Arno
