I downloaded firefly-rk3288_sdk_git_20141211 and compiled Android and linux. As I run with mkimage.sh command, I can get images that are "boot.img. kernel.img, misc.img, pcba_small_misc.img, pcba_whole_misc.img, recovery.img, resource.img, system.img". I upload the images with AndroidTool 2.3 and I only see the Android system. Android system works fine but there is no linux boot option that is "switch system at power menu" in Android.


After upload the images, I upload the linux-rfs.img to the recovery partition. Then I couldn't boot Android. Could you help me to upload Android/linux dual OS images with linux-rfs?


Thanks.

Please use the attached parameter file (extract it first).

This is the dual boot paramater file. You can compare it with the old one.

It  adds "root=" kernel parameter , and replaces the unused radical_update partition with linuxroot partition.


You need to flash linux-boot.img (which contains kernel and initramfs) to recovery, and linux-rfs.img to linuxroot.

I buit boot.img from initrd and boot.img. I followed the rules that is described in wiki. But I couldn't boot linux system. Please let me know how to deal with this problem.


git clone https://github.com/TeeFirefly/initrd.git
make -C initrd
mkbootimg --kernel arch/arm/boot/zImage --ramdisk initrd.img -o boot.img


I upload boot.img to the recovery partition and linux-rfs.img into the linuxroot and I used following parameter as you mentioned.


CMDLINE:console=ttyFIQ0 androidboot.hardware=rk30board androidboot.console=ttyFIQ0 board.ap_has_alsa=0 root=/dev/block/mtd/by-name/linuxroot rw rootfstype=ext4 init=/sbin/init initrd=0x62000000,0x00800000

0x00040000@0x00050000(cache),0x00002000@0x00090000(kpanic),0x00180000@0x00092000(system),0x00002000@0x00212000(metadata),

0x00200000@0x00214000(userdata),0x00620000@0x00414000(linuxroot),-@0x00a34000(user)


But, I only see the logo while booting. So I connected serial port from Firefly and I noticed that linux-rfs.img which is "/dev/mmcblk0p15 " is not mounted  .  When I manually mount /dev/mmcblk0p15 then root file is ok. When I upload linux-boot.img into the recovery partition in official Firefly-RK3288_DualBoot_201411111636.7z image, it is working. So I think initrd.img is something wrong.

As you see the mtab file, there is no "mmcblk0p15" device information.

I used new initrd.img that you uploaded but linux still can't mount user disk which is /dev/mmcblk0p15. I think root file system is mounted but it does not start lightdm UI. I'll email linux-boot.img to you. Linux-rfs.img is the same image in official Firefly-RK3288_DualBoot_201411111636.7z and I mentioned parameter that I used before this post. Please let me know how to fix it.

I've tested your linux-boot.img, and it cannot start lightdm too.


Please check your kernel config. You can find kernel/arch/arm/configs/firefly-rk3288-linux_defconfig for a reference.

Maybe you have not checked CONFIG_VT ?


Please attach your kernel config.

If you check /var/log/Xorg.0.log, you'll find the following error:

Yes, CONFIG_VT is required and you did not specify it.

Thanks for your help.


I can boot linux with CONFIG_VT kernel option.


Firefly can boot linux and android well. I figure out that linux needs "make firefly-rk3288-linux_defconfig" and android need "make firefly-rk3288_defconfig". But, there is no CONFIG_VT option at "arch/arm/configs/firefly-rk3288-linux_defconfig".


Thanks.

"# CONFIG_VT is not set" is specified in kernel/arch/arm/configs/firefly-rk3288_defconfig

which turns CONFIG_VT off explictly.


By default, CONFIG_VT will be on.
