[resolved] Newer 02+ fails to flash from USB - ERROR: CTL:TIMEOUT



  • Ok, so a bit of a strange one here.

    Hooked up one of my recent O2+ purchases (the ones with MAC C1:xx:xx - My C0:xx:xx ones are the kickstarter originals) to an expansion dock and let it boot through to first boot completion:

    Restarted it with reset pressed and initiated a firmware reload from USB, it identified my USB and then that was all she wrote. Just stops there complaining of a timeout.

    All my previous firmware flashing was on a mini dock, so I thought perhaps this expansion doc is faulty, so I swapped it out for the mini dock, but same result. All USB firmware upgrades result in the timeout.

    Since I can boot into the b159 firmware that it shipped with, I used sysupgrade to flash the b160 firmware and that was successful:

    Thinking the b160 firmware might make a difference, I again tried a USB firmware upgrade by holding reset and powering on, but alas, no difference. Uboot starts, identifies the USB device and then just locks up and throws a timeout error.

    Was wondering if anyone else with one of the later batch of O2+'s has seen similar behaviour?

    Interestingly, it seems that even though the UBoot version is the same as that shipped with my kickstarter O2+'s "4.3.0.3", it does display some differences. Notably, the address of "relocate_code Pointer" changed from "87f60000" to "87f5c000", the date changed from "Date:Oct 18 2016 Time:17:29:05" to "Date:Sep 19 2017 Time:15:11:41" and the later one shows the wifimac address.
    eg: original UBoot:

    I've tried another from my last batch of 10 and the behaviour is exactly the same.

    Anyone else with a new O2+ (MAC: 40A36BC1xxxx) care to try and see if they are able to flash from USB?



  • @cas Did you try this with another USB stick?



  • @György-Farkas
    No, I tried a different mini-dock and the same usb stick just flashed my O2 b160 fw fine to an older O2+ on that.
    But I should try a different usb stick as well.

    I've just dumped the mtd partitions from an older O2+ so I can also try writing the u-boot and u-boot-env ones back to this new O2+ and see if that makes any difference.



  • Different usb stick, same result:

  • Seems, u-boot can't be written in the fashion I was expecting:

    # mtd write u-boot.bin mtd0
    Could not open mtd device: mtd0
    Can't open device for writing!
    

    Ah well, time for some research then.



  • @cas I thought another vendor's USB device. I also found some problems with SanDisk Cruzer Blade 8GB USB flash drives on Omega2(+).

    @cas I thought another vendor's USB device. I also found some problems with SanDisk Cruzer Blade 8GB USB flash drives on Omega2(+).

    I find them to be the most reliable to the extent that I use them almost exclusively for everything I do.
    I popped out and bought a Strontium 32GB but the result is exactly the same:

  • It's the u-boot.
    As far as I can tell, the one that shipped on my newer O2+'s is broken for USB flashing.

    I replaced u-boot and u-boot-env with the ones from my kickstarter O2+'s and I can now successfully flash firmware from USB as expected.
