Re: Gen 5 Davinci UART0 Pinout ?

Using a very fine drill ( 0.65mm ) I drilled beneath the area where UART0 RXD is supposed to be. What was beneath was copper and it appeared it was connected to ground. So - until someone takes hi-res pictures of the pad layouts beneath the Davinci - this is a no go. I only have one 605 - so if I re...

Re: Gen 5 Davinci UART0 Pinout ?

Can anyone confirm if the Davinci UART0 rxd pin is accessible in any way ? I can say that TXD appears brought out to pin 9 of the smaller docking connector ( i.e. the one which normally takes the usb sync cable ). The reason I'm asking is that I have managed to get my 605Wifi into "BOOTME" mode ( i...

Re: Gen 5 Davinci UART0 Pinout ?

The reason I'm asking is that I have managed to get my 605Wifi into "BOOTME" mode What is that and how did you manage to do this? BOOTME is the request sent out by the ARM core when attempting to boot over UART0. Check page 62 of the Datasheet for the DM6441 http://focus.ti.com/lit/ds/symlink/tms32...

Re: Gen 5 Davinci UART0 Pinout ?

There were pictures as you described, with the DaVinci chip removed. Somewhere on this forum. I don't have it handy though so you will have to go a-searchin'. I saw pictures of the Davinci chip removed from the PCB - but haven't as yet seen the pads from under the chip. The post seemed to suggest t...

Re: AOS2 utility

Chicken-and-egg problem. Replacing the 2.1.04 rootfs with that of 1.7.13 will give you back GFT. You can do that by taking out the harddisk of your A705 and connecting it to a normal computer. Once you have 1.7.13 running again, you can read out the flash which will give us the AES-key for the A705...

Re: AOS2 utility

1. Great work on the AOS2 Utility - fantastic. 2. Anyone got the A705 Keys ? ( At least the AES ) I'd like to extract rootfs for 1.7.13 and place it on my drive if it's possible ( My machine is 2.1.04 ). Would that at least allow GFT - even though to install moldy cheese we would need to work around...
