kristianpaulDocScrutinizer: wolfspra1l ^15:05
DocScrutinizer\o/ finally, I already searched for it but it wasn't up back when15:07
DocScrutinizernow those guys are messing not only with local carriers and authorities, but also with international big business and politics and 3letter agencies - YAY15:08
Action: DocScrutinizer feels the black helis approaching in the night15:08
DocScrutinizerhmm OK, OTG pin control bit POR default: 0=disabled15:15
DocScrutinizer( Table 5. Control/Battery Voltage Register (Read/Write) Memory Location: 02, Reset State: 0000 1010  B0(LSB) )15:16
DocScrutinizers after POR it acts like 24150?15:16
DocScrutinizerooops ETAB, sorry15:19

jlamotheDoes anyone happen to know what the maximum current of the 5v output on an Arduino Nano is?  I know the Digital outputs are 40mA, but I can't find anything on the regulated output.18:47
killiHi, ive been having some problems with my ben after i tried updating today. At first it all seem to go well, the reflash ben script manages to boot the device, but on flashing the bootloader it says that it has finished 2/2 but it exits and the following message is display: error - cant read bulk data from ingenic device: -100. After this when i tried booting once, wich caused a kernel panic, and later this evening i cant get any life in20:51
killiSorry for the long message...20:52
kristianpaultry reflash again, try short usb cable20:54
kristianpauli must leave will be back in 2 hrs20:54
killiill try a shorter cable, but i dont think i even get it into usb boot modeƂ20:56
erikkugelhi Killi did you try shorting the pins behind the batter for getting into USB mode?21:00
erikkugel*USB boot mode21:00
killiI havnt really tried that.21:01
killiill do that21:02
erikkugelIt's really easy and you can do it with a piece of foil if you lost the little rubber cap that shipped with the nanonote. Then, you can try running reflash_ben.sh again, or following the safer steps and flush manually with a series of commands.21:02
erikkugelI remember recovering a Nanonote like this once, assuming you don't have a permanent hardware failure.21:03
killii didnt do it earlier because i couldnt find my carbonized rubber thingie, but i figured the "soft" version would be equally good.21:05
erikkugelNormally it is, but, if you bricked your Nanonote the software keys wont work - there will be nothing running to read them (that's my understanding, might be wrong). You can use and kind of conductive material - foil is usually found in most kitchens :)21:06
erikkugel*and = any21:07
killihehe, ill find some foil then:=21:07
erikkugelby the way, I lost my rubber cap too :)21:08
killihmm, taking the battery out and plugging it into my computer with the pins connected only result in a wierd clicking sound from inside the machine. 21:11
erikkugelhmmm that does not sound right, I mean, there should be no moving parts inside the nanonote, so what could be clicking?21:13
killidunno, sounds wierd. But there are good news! I got up in lsusb on another machine, gonna try to reflash. crossing my fingers!21:15
erikkugelgreat! the instructions you should be following are under "Hardware Boot" here: http://en.qi-hardware.com/wiki/USB_BOOT_mode21:16
erikkugelIf reflash_ben.sh fails a second time, use the instruction to flush the ban manually.21:16
erikkugelUse the instructions here: http://en.qi-hardware.com/wiki/Updating_Ben_with_usbboot21:17
erikkugelthat should keep you busy for a while, but feel free to write here and the mailing list if all else fails. Goodluck.21:17
wpwrakben, flash or be flushed ... what a cruel fate ...21:17
erikkugellolz indeed! but on the bright side how many devices give you the satisfaction of shorting pins to recover them?21:18
erikkugelexcept routers, I guess :P21:18
erikkugel... and with kitchen materials, too!21:19
killithanks for the help, reflash_ben failed so ill try the "hard" way21:19
erikkugelno worries. You might be looking at a genuinely bricked nanonote, though those are pretty rare ;) I that's the case maybe you can offer it for forensics to the guys at Qi :P21:21
erikkugelby genuinely bricked I mean with a hardware failure21:21
erikkugelWhich error did reflash_ben.sh fail with the second time, just out of curiosity?21:22
killiim getting some progress, steps 1 and 2 worked, now im stuck when going to nprog open....root.ubi, nprog says not enough arguments, but that i will figure out... So i dont think its bricked:)21:27
killii got the same error, ... ingenic device: -10021:28
killinprog 2048 openwrt-xburst-qi_lb60-root.ubi 0 0 -n is the correct command? keep getting:  not enough argument.21:31
erikkugelare you located in the folder wehere openwrt-xburst-qi_lb60-root.ubi is located?21:36
killiyes, but i added an e at the and, and it started flashing, so ill see where this gets me:)21:38
killithanks for all help erikkugel 21:38
wpwrakhmm, was that -100 or -110 ? -110 would be common, timeout. often a transmission problem.21:49
erikkugelsounds like -110 is pretty generic, I wonder what -100 could be, and where could we get the legend for those codes, after all, its opensource hardware (mostly :p )22:04
erikkugelI'm just calling -110 generic because in TCP/IP timeouts are generic - could mean anything :)22:04
kristianpaulmay be outdated xburst tools 22:12
erikkugelha, good point.22:18
