13:46:47Master_Yogaunbelievable meeting somebody here
13:47:17Master_Yogalist is full of people but nobody seems to chat
13:48:01Master_Yogais there some *hidden* secret going on here?...
13:48:18pamaurythis is a technical channel, people only discuss technical matters
13:48:33Master_Yogawell, I have a technical problem
13:48:33pamauryand there are not many people working on rockbox anymore
13:48:56Master_Yogawhy is the chatroom full of people?
13:49:18Master_YogaI mean the list on the right −−−−>
13:49:35pamauryso that they can read the log and answer questions if they are pinged I suppose
13:49:49Master_YogaI see....
13:50:08Master_YogaI have trouble with my cowon U3. So who should I ping?
13:50:58Master_Yogait's not directly rockbox-related
13:51:07Master_YogaI bricked the player
13:51:15Master_Yogathere is a tool to unbrick
13:51:24Master_Yogathe tool is made by the rockbox-team
13:51:32Master_Yogait's called tcctool
13:51:42Master_YogaI need help with usage
13:51:53pamauryI know a bit about tcctool
13:52:04pamaurywhat did you do exactly to brick the player ?
13:52:41pamaury(however tcctool doesn't know about the cowon U3 so it might be tricky)
13:52:48Master_YogaI damagd the partition-table
13:53:29pamauryand now it won't boot ?
13:53:38Master_Yogathe tcctool is working with iaudio6...I tried it with cowon u3 and it worked. It loaded an older firmware-version
13:53:51Master_Yogawith the iaudio6-option
13:54:25Master_Yogayes. the firmware is running but it is freezing because the memory is unaccessible (I think)
13:54:50Master_Yogaso it can't load system-files from the 4GB-flash-disk
13:55:12Master_Yogawhen I plug in windows no drive and no partition is showing up...that's the problem
13:55:43Master_YogaI damaged the partition table with linux testdisk
13:56:14Master_YogaI had some corrupted files before. So I decided running testdisk "to fix the filesystem".
13:56:16pamauryI see, that's quite trick then because if the firmware won't boot, it means you would have to upload something else to recover
13:56:19Master_Yoga...this was a bad idea...
13:56:47pamauryand I don't even know what is inside, probably a NAND chip I guess

13:57:46Master_YogaFlash Memory: K9K4G08U0M?
13:58:01Master_YogaSystem on Chip: Telechips TCC770
13:59:00Master_YogaI have a full backup of the flash-memory on my computer
13:59:21Master_Yogaif I could access the memory, I could just reformat it and copy back everything....
13:59:28pamaurywell, the backup is no really the problem here
13:59:37pamaurythe problem is how to access it
13:59:49 Quit JdGordon_ (Ping timeout: 240 seconds)
14:00:16pamauryespecially since it's NAND, it probably uses a FTL
14:01:14Master_Yogathe incident happened about three years ago...since then...I waited for some possibility to unbrick the player. Now I found tcctool! But just booting an older firmware doesn't seem to be enough though.
14:01:58pamauryflash translation layer, it is a way to make a NAND chip look like a disk
14:02:03 Join JdGordon_ [0] (~jonno@rockbox/developer/JdGordon)
14:02:17Master_YogaThere is no official repair or anything! Cowon stopped support! You can't even repair a player for money!
14:03:38pamauryjust to make sure, when you boot the player normally, what happen ? It boots but freezes ?
14:03:40 Quit JdGordon (Ping timeout: 246 seconds)
14:05:07Master_Yogayes, it shows the title-screen, reading "iAudio U3 Starting Ver 1.29"...and that's it.
14:05:37Master_YogaUsually an animation would follow, showing the cowon-logo.
14:06:27Master_YogaI guess the animation gets loaded from the flashdisk, well as the rest of the software

14:07:10pamauryunfortunately, I'm afraid this is going to be near impossible without a HUGE amount of work. People have tried to understand the FTL format ( and were not quite successful apparently.
14:07:50Master_Yogaoh no....
14:09:33Master_Yoga...that sucks...
14:09:41pamauryyou really need a cowon tool to fix this I'm afraid
14:09:50pamaurymaybe the firmware has a recovery mode ?
14:10:21Master_Yogahow to find out?
14:10:30pamaurytry holding buttons when it boot
14:10:36pamaurytypically try holding menu
14:10:38pamauryor play
14:11:12Master_Yogawell, I have to hold the menu-button to allow tcctool to access the player
14:11:28Master_Yogait's called external boot or something alike
14:11:45pamauryyeah that's the hardware recovery mode
14:11:54pamaurybut maybe there is a software one
14:11:58pamaury(with another button)
14:13:07Master_Yogaok, I'll try some other buttons. There is: Rec, Menu and the Pause/Play-Button...and of cource the joystick, wich can be pushed down
14:14:03Master_YogaPause/Play is used to switch on the player.
14:14:15Master_YogaPlay and Menu...nothing happens
14:14:33Master_YogaPlay and Joystick...nothing happens
14:14:40Master_YogaPlay and Rec...nope...nothing
14:14:57Master_Yogaplay and joystick-down...player starts as usual
14:15:11pamaurythis thread might be interesting, although it's about the D2
14:16:09Link8i put rockbox on my ipod on a different windows
14:16:12Master_Yogaforgot the reset-button: reset and play...nothing. reset+rec...nothing
14:16:15Link8now im on my mac and i plug it in
14:16:18Link8it doesnt show it
14:16:36Link8last time i rockboxed it on xp, plugged it in mac and it showed it
14:16:37Link8hmm weird
14:16:44pamauryMaster_Yoga: maybe there is none then
14:16:45Link8mac doesnt support FAT32 ofcourse?
14:17:15pamauryLink8: I know nothing about ipod/Mac, maybe others on the channel will answer if they know
14:17:33Master_YogaThanks for the threat...I know it already...that's how I found tcctools
14:17:40Link8this channel is about that right pamaury
14:18:08pamauryLink8: yes you are on the correct channel
14:18:11Master_Yoga@Link8 I guess you switched the tab or something
14:18:28Master_Yogathis is the wrong channel...only two persons are here
14:18:53pamauryMaster_Yoga: I understand, but what we miss the file to upload to the device to reformat, the thread suggest they have one such file for the D2
14:19:28Master_YogaI think it's just the official firmware
14:19:40Master_Yogadownloaded from cowon-website
14:20:03Link8what tab Master_Yoga
14:20:59Master_Yoganot sure...maybe there is a tab for each channel on the toolbar of the chat-client
14:21:10Master_Yogait seems you were in the middle of some conversation
14:21:38Master_Yoga...maybe you switched the chatroom in the middle of conversation..without noticing it
14:22:19pamauryMaster_Yoga: I'm sorry, I don't know what to suggest to fix your player
14:22:21 Quit foolsh (Quit: dur)
14:22:47Master_Yogathank you anyway... least I know a bit more about the problem...
14:24:27Master_Yogawho knows...maybe I have to wait a few years more...for another tool
14:24:53Master_Yogabeing able to reformat/access via usb
14:25:39Master_Yoga@Link8: Do you have three firmware-files instead of one?
14:25:55Link8i installed it on a windows computer
14:26:40Master_YogaBecause when doing a manual flash with tcctool it's usually the first file to use
14:27:02Link8why are you telling me this
14:27:41Master_YogaBecause you said you have trouble with the firmware for D2
14:28:34Master_Yogaok, now I use rockbox...
14:28:39Master_YogaI don't know how tu use it
14:28:54Link8what do you use?
14:29:03Link8dont have trouble with any firmware
14:29:07Master_YogaJust played around with this tcctool to re-upload the orig-firmware to the player
14:29:13Link8just wondering why drive doest show up on my mac
14:29:22Link8because last time i did when i rockboxed it with XP mac-experienced user here...
14:31:22Master_Yogajust know...when something is not workin on a really have a problem
14:32:01Master_Yogabecause the whole thing is totally commercial...and modifications are not intended...
14:32:26Master_Yogareally good reasons...not ever buying a mac

22:19:37Link8i think its good to know for the chan that you shouldnt use rockbox on mac
22:20:03[Saint]There's absolutely no supported install method for this device at all anyway.
22:20:07[Saint]So it really doesn't matter.
22:20:53Link8i used rockbox utility with mac
22:21:07Link8i keep getting errors while transferring music
22:21:11[Saint]Not to install the bootloader you didn't.
22:21:16Link8any idea why this is Saint
22:21:20Link8no not the bootloader
22:22:22[Saint]Right. Rockbox Utility can only update an existing install, it can't do an initial install, or remove an existing one, in ipod6g. Rockbox provides no officially supported means of actually booting the binary supplied.

22:29:01[Saint]an ssd isn't going to magically save you from corrupt filesystems.

22:29:37Link8what do you think the exact problem is?
22:29:45Link8any way to fix it?
22:30:15[Saint]I would think that you've been fucking around with USB and transfers a lot and forgetting to safely disconnect the storage volume each time.
22:30:29Link8but i just reformatted the disc
22:30:32Link8should be all clean right?

22:37:03Link8i thought it was repaired since the disc is reformatted?
22:37:36[Saint]If formatting the disk directly from the emCORE tools menu doens't present you with a usable filesystem then it is very likely that the disk is badly damaged.
22:37:52Link8what do you mean
22:38:06Link8i format the disc from the emCORE tools menu

22:39:55[Saint]if the situation you describe is correct (which I have some problem with), then it's quite clear it doesn't. Files don't magically survive a format reporting success without the disk being all kinds of fucked up.
22:40:25Link8the files dont survive [Saint]
22:40:27[Saint]If you format the disk and it still has files present after the fact it's pretty clear something is fundamentally wrong.

22:50:01[Saint]You could attempt to recover the usable section of the disk with hddscan2.ubi from but this can take a VERY long time to complete, if it completes at all.
22:50:17[Saint]And, I do mean a very long time.
22:50:18[Saint]Anywhere from hours, to days, to weeks.
22:50:32[Saint]the iPod _must_ remain powered during this time.
22:50:47[Saint]If it resets, or the battery drains before the scan completes, you will lose all progress and need to start again.
22:51:13Link8if thats recovered.. i can use the usable section for rockbox again?
22:52:00[Saint]this tool basically aggressively scans for and determines badblocks on the disk and builds a map of them that rockbox can use to avoid the damaged sections of the disk.
22:52:00[Saint]and, yes.
22:52:00Link8i see
22:52:21Link8so should i reformat the disc first before i do this?
22:52:21[Saint]before you ask - you would flash this tool via emCORE's UMSboot function.
22:52:48Link8and how do i do that exactly?
22:52:48[Saint]and, no, it makes no difference if the disk is formatted or not really.

22:53:36[Saint]boot to emCORE main menu, plug USB, select UMSboot, copy the hddscan2.ubi file to the UMSboot volume on the host, safely eject the volume, then unplug the device.
22:53:52[Saint]the tool will run automatically.
22:54:19[Saint]as stated this will take a VERY long time to complete the scan.
22:54:37[Saint]During which time the ipod will make a wide variety of ugly sounding clicks and noises.
22:54:37[Saint]This is normal.
22:54:52Link8ok im going to this step by step
22:54:52[Saint]ANd remember it _must_ be powered for the full duration of the scan, even if it takes days or weeks.
22:54:59[Saint]If the device loses power or is reset before it completes all progress is lost.
