Can you please release changelogs with all your future image releases?Ideally outside the archive, that not the whole file must be downloaded to see the changes.

V I R U S:
I've soldered it 3 times, after it broke again, i just sent it to german distributor.
I received the board yesterday, had a play around the android and everything works.I try to install Ubuntu Server via a walk through guide, http://wiki.radxa.com/Rock/flash_the_image. I downloaded Rcokchip Batch Tool 1.7 andradxa_rock_ubuntu_server_140315_update image from Radxa download page.
Successfully load boot Radxa board and clicked on upgrade button, waited for 3 mins until the highlighted green "say success.." I unplug the micro USB and plug back in. Only red light are on and no green light..
I have limited experience and would really appreciate help from the Radxa Community as I am not sure what I done wrong. If the server image are not production ready than how can I get the original image back on?
Does anyone know if the Radxa Rock is a commercial success?
What defines commercial success. The company of Radxa started about 10 months ago. Now we have sold for more than 3000 rock and 1000 rock pro. The shipping started since 2014. We have been out of stock in June. The new rock pro is out of stock soon after the 1000 was made. Yes, we are out of stock rock pro now and we are busy making more. There is also the new lower cost rock lite on market soon and the rock2 under design and will be announced soon next month. We are actually a team of four...
I see the images here are pretty old with the latest stable dated 14 March 2014:http://dl.radxa.com/rock/images/android/
At the time of your post, the newest image on the server is 28-Jun-2014.
I came to the site today to look for Android 4.4 and a solution to the missing multiuser feature. That feature can be put in place via a tweak here:http://www.arctablet.com/blog/forum/ifive-general-discussions/enable-multi-user-on-rk3188-4-4-2-1/But I don't have the skills to do the job.
Multi-user is not the feature that everyone needs, it conflicts with other feature such as mount usb cdroms or used as mass storage when connecting to pc. We can make an image with this feature for you but can not include in the general release image.
Though considering buying more RR, I am concerned about the success of the project. The images are 5 months old.The perspex case delivered with my RR was faulty and I was told to write for a new metal box, when they appear. Well they haven't appeared. Valid forum posts often receive no reply.
We have made several kind of metal boxes(at least 3 design). We are not satisfied with them. One is not good looking, one is too expensive and can not be massive produced and one looks like the design of other case so we cut it off. We are looking for some alternatives for the expensive design.
Is the RR selling well?
Have not the time right now to check this out. So here is the link http://crewrktablets.arctablet.com/?wpfb_dl=2007. Hang around the site they have some android support for the Radxa.
CM seems to be having issues with Google http://www.cyanogenmod.org/blog/cyanogenmod-installer-application-removed-from-play-store, so an ADB install will need to be made. Heard that there has been an internal rift with developers. Some have split and are working on the OmniRoms, all conjecture on my part. The install is a KK gapps specific for the build along with a separate CM install file, so two files will be need to be installed with a sideload install. If I find what files work will give a link, Gen-2 RKCrewTablet selinux Kernel not working for me.
@hipboi said in Radxa Rock only showing about half of available RAM:
For your device, please contact the distributor for a replacement.
Yeah ;) I will do that.
Thank you for your time.
@minimec 2013.10.25 is the hardware revision. Your board is radxa rock, MP version. Four dram chips(256x16) makes 2GB. 256x16bits equals 512 bytes. so both android and linux reports it's only 1GB. this happens rarely maybe because two dram chip is not soldered well. We found this issue recently and have improved our testing program to pick them up among the good ones. For your device, please contact the distributor for a replacement.
Nope, I don't get this. What have gone wrong?
I have tried low formatting, updating bootloader and parameters and reflashed...still Radxa won't boot.
I have updated to bootloader 2.13 but terminal says loader version 2.08. Is this wrong?
@Morranmaskinen ~ $ upgrade_tool uf radxa_rock_debian_wheezy_140624_update.imgLoading firmware...Support Type:RK31 FW Ver:1.0.00 FW Time:2014-06-24 14:38:51Loader ver:2.08 Loader Time:2013-12-02 18:58:57Upgrade firmware ok.
some people are blaming that I'm hiding something to use bootloader version 2.10 in above 4.2.2 firmware. they think it's impossible to use bootloader version 2.x in 4.2.2 firmware without "something" in kernel. and if "something" exists, it prevents to use bootloader version 1.x.
I did nothing to use bootloader version 2.10 in 4.2.2 firmware. original firmware also uses version 2.08, and I believe there is no "something" to make it possible. it's just "possible". there is no problem from the beginning, there is no "something" to solve problem.
then, I made 2 (no benefit to use, just for confirmation) images here: http://talk.radxa.com/topic/416/android-4-2-2-4-4-2-images-with-bootloader-1-24
this is NO BENEFIT TO USE, WASTE OF TIME for normal users
http://files.androtab.info/radxa/radxa_rock_android_140312_update_140509_bl1.zipthis is Android 4.2.2 image based on http://talk.radxa.com/topic/129/android-4-2-2-test-image
http://files.androtab.info/radxa/radxa_rock_android_kitkat_r1_140628_update_bl1.zipthis is Android 4.4.2 image based on http://dl.radxa.com/rock/images/android/radxa_rock_android_kitkat_r1_140628_update.zip
above 2 images(*_bl1.zip) use bootloader version 1.24 and rk30xxnand_ko(FTL INFO:Version = 438,Date = 20130516). everything except bootloader and rk30xxnand_ko is COMPLETELY SAME as original which uses bootloader version 2.10 and rk30xxnand_ko(FTL version: 5.0.9 20131224).
strangely, some amount of people seem to believe, using bootloader version 1.x with KK kernel, and using bootloader version 2.x with JB kernel, are impossible without kernel modification. I really have no idea why it's impossible. I really have no idea why kernel needs to be modified. I really have no idea why they believe it.
I never met any problem when using different bootloader version. I never tried to modify kernel for it.
sadly, some people seem to think "he(naobsd) must modify something in kernel. but he doesn't tell about it, he doesn't open his source. he is bad guy."
I did nothing because I didn't meet any problem. how can I fix "something" which doesn't exist? how can I open my source which doesn't exist?
For me the same problem.I've flashed the update.img using the RK-Batchtool. After that I only see the four penguins.Then I've flashed your parameter file, boot, kernel, recovery image but I only see the penguins :(
Update:Now I flashed the framebuffer parameter and now I see that rock runs a panic dump reboots and after pressing the return key everything is fine.
My steps:Flashing update_miniroot_full.img using batchtoolFlashing parameter_fbcon (framebuffer console) using RKAndroid_Tool
But unfortunately flashing to sd is not working for me. when I boot radxa with an miniroot sd it says that modules are missing.Can anybody post detailed steps for booting from sd?
update2:Using your tutorial I now want to extract the ubuntu-core to sd but when I try this step the radxa crashes and finaly reboot.After this the radxa crashes everytime i open the ubuntu dir
@naobsd yes, immediately after boot, without any interaction:(Each time messages are different and I believe that this is some kind of kernel panic.Sometimes radxa is being automatically rebooted. Sometimes radxa shows questions instead of memory regions as on the photo above.I am going to by ttl2usb cable (I do not have the one) and check the output.
@AndersBronto I choose to not allow the root connection in ssh, and for localpurge I answer no to the question (I don't remember what the question was about XD ).Anyway it doesn't matter, you can answer whatever you want.
@hipboi Ok, now I understand how to do that, I fix the guide :)
Great tutorial!1 question:When I have changed wheezy to sid with nano and do dist-upgrade I get two questions about ssh and localepurge. What's your recommendations? yes or no?
