Re: [howto] Switch boot partitions via micom eeprom C series

Ok, got nearly everything. But what exactly do you mean by saying: so it seems like the toggle is only called automatically when the active partition set fails to mount... Could you please explain? (i didn't read about this feature yet) And could you please give the link to the wiki page where it's ...

Re: [howto] Switch boot partitions via micom eeprom C series

From my experience: I upgraded/downgraded my tv (C7700) many times (2nd partition set was active), but 1st partition set was still on version 1004 1001. At least in my case this partition set stayed untouched al the time, so an upgrade is written to the active partition. Of course the partition set'...

Re: [howto] Switch boot partitions via micom eeprom C series

To complete my case i attached both states (1st active and 2nd active) as dumps of my micom EEPROM. Mind attachement comments. Just for information: if you compare both that dumps with the one i posted previously (Micom_EEPROM_after_toggle_try.zip) you will figure out that the ascii string 'ger' cha...

Re: Patching exeDSP

There's no 'micom' in: /bin /sbin /usr/bin /usr/sbin :shock: But u'r right a 'sync' before 'reboot' was better! Better with what ? :D 'sync' (command?) makes 'reboot' more safe ? :D Exactly! If the reboot binary doesn't call 'sync' implicitly you could lose data or corrupt file contents without flu...

Re: Patching exeDSP

I don't see any reason why not calling 'reboot'. I used it several times. Think of a power breakdown that was even harder... @devs: correct me please if i am wrong! (sadly micom binary doesn't seem to exist on c series) The time returned by _ZN4TCTv17GetSystemInfoTimeEPmi is still little of at some ...

Re: [App] Get Current Time From TV C/D/E

Great! That saves my setting up the toolchain :D Works as expected: # /mtd_rwarea/getcurrenttimefromtv -n exeDSP Current Time: 1393666034 The current date/time is: Sat Mar 1 09:27:14 2014 Regarding the missing time offset (at my tv too), have a look at the functions TCTv::GetTimeZone(int *,int *,int...

Re: Patching exeDSP

Hi sectroyer, 1) 'reboot' is risky only if you flashed something, especially between flashing a partition and its hash. At the time when i recommend to use it your tv is already safe. Partitions and its hashes have already been flashed correctly and there have been several reboots beyond. BTW you do...

Re: Patching exeDSP

In the following I will present you how to use/test a patched exeDSP FAILSAFE :idea: (i use it that way) Some introduction: Q : Why not just replace exeDSP located in /mtd_exe? A : Because /mtd_exe is mounted read-only, so you can't simply change it. Q : So, why not simpy re-mounting /mtd_exe read-w...
