[SOLVED] - Wrong Cubox-i installation documentation

Postby Musikolo » Sun Mar 05, 2017 5:55 pm

Hi,

After upgrading my Cubox-i4pro device (pacman -Syu) and updating uboot flash, my device no longer booted up. So, I was loking into how to solve it for many hours. Although I tried everything not to reinstall my system, in the end I decided to go ahead and do it. So, I followed the instructions of the "Installations" tab at https://archlinuxarm.org/platforms/armv ... le/cubox-i

These steps are mostly right, but there is a bug in the step 7:
Code: Select all
dd if=root/boot/SPL of=/dev/sdX bs=1K seek=1
dd if=root/boot/u-boot.img of=/dev/sdX bs=1K seek=42 <<-- WRONG


The problem is seek=42 should be seek=69 as you see at https://archlinuxarm.org/packages/armv7 ... -i.install

So the correct commands should be:
Code: Select all
dd if=root/boot/SPL of=/dev/sdX bs=1K seek=1
dd if=root/boot/u-boot.img of=/dev/sdX bs=1K seek=69


I hope this helps others that run into the same issue.

Best regards! ;)

EDIT: As of 03/18/2017, the bug has been solved and documentation looks correct to me now. Thank you!
