tnx mara, for the kernel!

had to patch manually https://github.com/T-Firefly/lin ... bf65c63cb5c6911a0cb "rk3288: add mtdpart partition support and volname attribute" to make the kernel recognize partitions. and then used
  1. CMDLINE:console=ttyS2,115200 console=tty0 earlyprintk root=/dev/mmcblk0p3 rw rootwait rootfstype=ext4 init=/sbin/init initrd=0x62000000,0x00800000 mtdparts=rk29xxnand:0x00008000@0x00002000(kernel),0x00008000@0x0000A000(boot),-@0x00012000(linuxroot)
Copy the code

Mara I have tried using. Your sdcard script but it fails to boot with the same error so I think I'm doing something wrong with either the script or the boot process. I may still be trying to boot from emmc?

success!
it seemed to not like the first two sdcards i was using and i got a new one and it worked first go
mara when you get a chance can you have a look at what mac-11 posted because I'm not experienced enough to understand
testing it out on scard so far has been fantastic, haven't had a chance to setup network yet but everything else appears to be good, just wanted to say thank you for all your efforts mara

Transferring the system emmc:
boot from sd card
  1. cd /
  2. mkfs.ext4 /dev/mmcblk1p1
  3. mkdir /nand/{proc,sys}
  4. for d in $(ls | grep -v "nand\|proc\|sys"); do echo "copy dir $d"; сp -a "$d" /nand/ ; done
Copy the code


also need to flash:
RK3288UbootLoader_V2.19.01.bin
parameters.txt
boot.img
kernel.img

hi mara, I've had success with copying the contents of the nand folder to mmcblk1p1, only thing i had to do extra was to create a new partition table and then reflash boot loader, parameters.txt, boot.img, kernel.img
it works now, and so far is running good, a few little issues and tweaks needed but overall I'm very impressed

First of all,thanks for all the work you have done.
I was trying to install the latest 20160417 image into the interal storage(emmc),which followed the posted "How to" tutorial at http://fail.pp.ua/board/2. The picture at the bottom of that webpage shows that a .img file called "resource.img" is needed,but there's no such file in the directory of the 20160417 firmware. After that I found a resource.img from 20160410 firmware and flashed it with other files from 0417 with AndroidTool in Windows 10 without errors.
The problem is that the board failed to boot up and could be detected by Android Tool 2.3,and there's no HDMI output.
So what's the right method to install the files in 20160417 firmware into the emmc? Maybe the tutorial mentioned above didn't fits the 20160417 firmware.
Looking forward to your reply.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Problem solved by using sudo ./flash.sh to flash the images in Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.
