I have just bricked my GTA01, is there anyone on Germany who might be
willing to reanimate it via JTAG?
I would send you the unit with a return ticket.
Paymet for this service could be some bottles of the finest black wood
How does this sound?
Here is the story. (Not to repeat!)
Booting from SD never worked for me. I thought maybe Qi does it better.
Qi did not, but I lost my DFU-Mode this way.
(Qi has none and I have no secondary NOR bootloader. Qi Wiki-page was
written by Frerunenr users.)
It was clear that I have to go back to uboot as soon as possible because
I would be screwed the moment my system does not longer boot correctly.
(happens quickly with only hand full of megs free space)
I could not find any information on how to write it back with nandwrite.
Nandwrite has many parameters which I don't understand. And the Internet
is silent about this.
My post on the community list stayed unanswered.
So i just tried it:
> nandwrite /dev/mtd0 gta01bv4-u-boot.bin
> Input file is not page aligned
> Data was only partially written due to error
> : Success
Well, Error. It does not boot any more!
nandwrite -o would have probably been the right command... I don't know.
Could anyone elaborate? This should be documented.
Conclusion, keep away from Qi if you have a GTA01.
