Hey guys,I'm still waiting on my Eken but I tested my u-boot first stage upgrade script changes with MP4Doggie (THANKS!) and it's working!This makes it impossible (mostly, or atleast significantly less possible) to brick your eken with a rom update. If you lose power mid update, or have a bad SD card, or something weird happens - your eken can be recovered as soon as you get a fixed ROM or a new SD card and run again.This does not modify the running, internal boot loader in any way, just removes it from the upgrade process.I removed the u-boot, w-load and kernel nand writes from scriptcmd and created a proper u-boot header using mkimage.Unless you change the kernel this will work for all roms. Once we have a new kernel I can publish a new file to write that - but we should leave u-boot and w-load alone unless there is a reason to update! This DOES load the kernel off the SD card as it boots the linux micro distribution it uses to update the android filesystem, so it needs to be present, but you can remove uboot, wload, logo from your upgrade package if you like.Do NOT edit this file yourself without making a new header, it will break the header in most cases and wont run. You can download the new scriptcmd from here:http://slatedroid.humped.us/eken_m001/scripts/scriptcmdI'll release a new update.sh and init scripts as part of a ROM tomorrow one way or another - I'd like to be able to test, but grrr, UPS is being slow with my Eken and aPad.Any questions let me know.
