[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.

  • 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.



  • @cas Hello! Can you please give us more details about reflashing the uboot? Or, maybe, your uboot dump? I have the same problem with the omega 2s+.



  • @cas How Have you managed to do that. I have same problem with CTL:TIMEOUT X no matter what USB flash I use. I have also added 22ohm resistor to D+ and D- but no difference.



  • @opti-gregor @Artem-Reznikov
    The solution I used was to build a custom firmware with USB support compiled in and with the omega dts file modified such as to enable the u-boot and u-boot-env partitions as read/write.

    Then with the O2+ in a mini-dock and dumps of the u-boot and u-boot-env from my kickstarter O2+ on a USB, I flashed the O2+ with the modified firmware and just wrote the kickstarter copies to the relevant partitions.

    It was a total hack, so I have no idea whether this worked by design or I was just lucky that it worked.
    Note, the officially sanctioned way to replace the bootloader is via an ethernet expansion installed in an expansion dock as documented here Firmware Flashing With Web Recovery Mode and I'd recommend anyone try that first before doing what I did.
    Further, note this useful clarification regarding the documented procedure by @Pavel-Metrokhin in Bootloader for Omega2S and Omega2S+

    Building the Onion software at the time I did this (Feb 2018) was a hit and miss affair, which is why I did it the way I did.

    @Artem-Reznikov
    Apologies for the late reply, somehow I managed to miss your question in the past.
