So does anyone have a bootloader/recovery dump from one of these devices to share? I pretty much know how to fix this at this point, just nothing good to work with.



I have the same situation ....

All my problems starting when by error i put one aml_autoscript from other Model aino (HERO)


if fatexist mmc 0:1 u-boot.bin
then
if fatload mmc 0:1 82000000 u-boot.bin
then
nand device 1
nand erase 0
nand rom_write 82000000 0 60000
defenv
setenv upgrade_step 4
setenv update_noscript 'run prepare; bmp display ${bootup_offset}; if mmcinfo; then if fatload mmc 0 ${loadaddr} aml_autoscript; then; fi; if fatload mmc 0 ${loadaddr} uImage_recovery; then setenv bootargs ${bootargs} a9_clk_max=800000000; bootm; fi; if fatload mmc 0 ${loadaddr} recovery.img; then setenv bootargs ${bootargs} a9_clk_max=800000000; bootm; fi; fi; nand read recovery ${loadaddr} 0 600000; setenv bootargs ${bootargs} a9_clk_max=800000000; bootm'
setenv upgrade_check ' if itest ${upgrade_step} == 0; then defenv; save; run update; else if itest ${upgrade_step} == 1; then defenv_without reboot_mode; setenv upgrade_step 2; save; else if itest ${upgrade_step} == 4; then setenv upgrade_step 1;run update_noscript; fi;fi;fi'
save
reset
fi
fi
fi

This autoscript made a NAND ERASE and from this moment the Tablet Crystal is DEAD.

NOTHING .... in differents PCS ,and differents USB Cables ,either recognized teh tablet in PC

Its frustant

Regards

Sure that fuser and tigger ,find a solution ..... XD

Here is the bootloader and the recovery image that albertetsbd pulled off his device. They appear to be the same size though, so I'm not sure if it's right. What are you planning on doing with them?

As long as Ainol not publish the december FW or the sources it will be a hard work. We perfom test but so far without success.
We need the uImage files from the december FW.

Broken links, the files needed can be extracted from these, the size doesn't matter, the images are filled out with zeros, the nand size of these two partitions are the same, so anyone with working links, i would be thankful :D

I moved them into a new folder here. I'm pretty sure you can't extract or unpack a bootloader. You can definitely unpack a recovery file though but I haven' been able to pack it back together properly yet.

Thanks, it's not so much unpacking, the uboot uImage binary can be hexedited out :D

Thank all of you for your help. :)

I've got stuck with the same problem. I got 2 crystal tablets: One is already hard brick, the other is still alive. ;-) May I also extract the files from the working one or is it useless? If I get you right, then we have to wait for the FW. Correct?

fuser and all, I've the FLU since Tues, I made a long post to Personal Converstion seems it didn' post there so here is the short take.

Batch 2 and 3 are diffrent inside, the display for one thing, BUT mainly there are "two" what I belive are flash chips in batch 2 but only "one" in batch 3. part# 29F64G08CBAAA, attached are side by side pix. Think that's the problem?
The CPU is different in the second line of the part #

@ Rafael5000 - Whats your kernel number?

@ tired old man 1 - Thanks for the photos, looks like flash memory to me as well but its hard to tell with the image not large enough. Shouldn't pose a problem but it's odd, maybe they moved from two 4GB chips to one 8GB chip. The new screen type does pose a problem but should be workable. What's the info on the CPU? Any other noticeable changes in hardware?
