When i bought the simpad, there was opie in it, and i want'd Windows CE, so I followed instructions in http://opensimpad.org/index.php/Linux#Rein...mens_bootloader

After i typed "load flash 0" i sended via ymed Pbl-simpad-1.0.tar.gz

And i did get something same like that.

boot> set override = 1
setting param <override> to value <1>
boot> pflash 0 0x40000 0
addr=00000000
len=00040000
protect=00000000
Protect=00000000
boot> load flash 0
loading flash region flash
using ymodem
ready for YMODEM transfer...

addr: 00010000 data: E1A0C00D
addr: 00020000 data: 4144540A
verifying ...
done.
boot>

Then i reseted simpad with reset button on the back, and now it doesent turn on, sometimes it will but blank screen, and i must keep power putton down.

What happened?

I did have hell lot of time to get the parts for the lumberg/serial connector and now, all for nothing.

E: Is this kind of jtag cable compatible without modification?

hi,
it seems that we need to rewrite the howto.
You have to unpack the tar file first. It contains a loader for Cl4 and SLC class devices. You unfortunate flashed the tarball directly. With jtag you should be able to flash the right loader to the pad.

The cable looks ok, but I don't know how it is wired. So I cannot guarantee that it will fit. You also need to solder the connector to the pad.

Hi,

ubuntu ist the right way.

First read https://help.ubuntu.com/community/InstallingSoftware about install software.

Then you need openwince-jtag 0.5.1 http://packages.ubuntu.com/edgy/embedded/openwince-jtag.

Next your pc-machine need parallel port and modules for your kernel (ppdev or parport).

Then you should follow the the guide from http://opensimpad.org/index.php/JTAG_HOWTO#Flash_Procedure.

You must open a terminal (xterm console) and write "jtag" to start the procedure (also your bootloader should live
in the same path were jtag-tools started.

-> simpadSL.rom for SIMpad SL4/SLC

-> simpadCL.rom for SIMpad CL4/others

Regards,
mrdata

Hi there,

i think its very wel for linux noobs to use cygwin for jtagging the simpad. I did for myself on WinXP with cygwin and its working perfect. If somebody is interested i will upload the cygwin install folder to RS.

Btw, i m looking for a cnet 4.2 image or rom backup for my simpad.

Sorry. Please do not ask here about 4.2 Images it would be not fair to simon and illegal.

Cheapest way to get ce 4.2 is to buy it on ebay with 4.2 and sell your old pad without 4.2.
Alternative go to simons site and buy it.

Btw there is a new angstrom test image in "Angstrom Hangs With Soft Lockup" thred wink.gif
