qi-bot[commit] Xiangfu Liu: cgminer: disable bitfore, it hang cgminer when it detect bitforce on icarus (master) http://qi-hw.com/p/openwrt-packages/99d94cc03:35
whitequarkDocScrutinizer51: I may be wrong03:43
whitequarkthe baseband chip is by different manufacturer and it's definitely not the same as exynos 4210 AP SoC03:43
whitequarkit's XMM626003:44
DocScrutinizerwhatever that is, it's not a STE chip AFAIK03:45
DocScrutinizerand the firmware bibary doesn't look like it's built from the sources I know, either03:46
DocScrutinizerbinary*03:46
DocScrutinizerthe src file references are rather unambiguously telling that03:48
DocScrutinizeras well as the error msg strings03:48
DocScrutinizeror rather, the lack of those03:48
whitequarkok, thanks for your time03:49
DocScrutinizerwe got an error handler that has more speaking strings than a gdb postmortem dump ;-)03:50
DocScrutinizeras well as (usually enabled) testing in each module, with a CLI with helptexts03:51
DocScrutinizerif you find string "IDBG" in the binary, like 'interactive debug', it might be our source03:52
DocScrutinizeralso each subsystem says "hello, I'm XY, built by JREISE00 at 2012-02-21 16:38" or sth like that03:53
DocScrutinizeralso the string "CAIF" must appear somewhere in the binary, I'd bet03:54
whitequarkCAIF?03:56
DocScrutinizerhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CAIF03:57
DocScrutinizerit's raher funny how it managed to merge in exactly under phonet into kernel sources ;-)04:01
DocScrutinizeranyway it seems STE doesn't plan to provide proper public specs for CAIF and the layers that use it, rather they provide RIL implementations for userland04:03
DocScrutinizerof course closed, AIUI04:03
DocScrutinizeranyway, tickets against CAIF and the HSI interface that usually transports CAIF, are my daily job04:04
DocScrutinizerraher the fixing of problems and closing of the tickets04:05
DocScrutinizerrather*04:05
DocScrutinizerto write it correctly at least once ;)04:05
DocScrutinizerbtw the chip is marked "DB5780" afaik, DB for Digital Baeband04:10
DocScrutinizerplus the known STE logo04:10
Action: DocScrutinizer makes mental post-it note: "open the can of a radio module, look at the chip"04:12
