The 0pen Free Fiasco Firmware Flasher


Documentation


Basic commands

*) How can I set my Internet Tablet into RD mode with 0xFFFF? Just type '0xFFFF -r 1' as root *) How can I unpack a FIASCO firmware? Just type '0xFFFF -r 1' as root *) How can I unpack a FIASCO firmware? Just type '0xFFFF -u FiascoFirmware.bin -e /tmp' as root *) How can I flash a new rootfs? Unpack the pieces from the fiasco firmware (the one distributed by Nokia for example) and then type: # 0xFFFF -R -p rootfs.jffs *) How can I flash a full FIASCO image? It is not recommended to use, it needs more testing, and is more secure to unpack them first manually and flash the pieces manually with multiple '-p' flags. If you are brave try: # 0xFFFF -F FiascoFirmware.fiasco

Advanced commands

*) How to extract the firmware pieces from a running device? It is possible to dump the firmware pieces from the internal MTD to reconstruct a FIASCO image. To do this recompile the flasher for ARM and run this command in the device: # mkdir /media/mmc1/backup # 0xFFFF -e /media/mmc1/backup *) Dumping configuration region There's a hidden mtd partition containing undocumented configuration information. This one can be dumped from the device using the following command: # 0xFFFF -x
