Re: Looking for original app*.tgz firmware file / help to boot from USB

All I can write here is to keep trying. I have only done this less than 5 times in many many years. I have hot swapped the rom chip once only on one Joggler. BTW there are three different Jogglers out there in Internetlandia: 1 - original O2 Joggler 2 - Openpeak (labeled) device which resembles an O...

Re: Looking for original app*.tgz firmware file / help to boot from USB

Are there some ROMs that doesn't boot on some devices? Does the ROM even matter as long as the EFI doesn't even seem to recognize the USB stick? I have seen the 1Mb boot roms get trashed maybe once. I would keep trying different USB sticks. I only mentioned the keyboard cuz some were different than...

Re: Looking for original app*.tgz firmware file / help to boot from USB

Here over the years have had similar issues. Is the boot rom on the motherboard socketed or soldered in to place? I would try different USB sticks and utilize a manual USB keyboard and kept blind typing. I too have have modded one Openframe 2 with a second USB port from the camera traces. Maybe try ...

Re: White screen on boot

Check the connection from the LCD screen to the motherboard and from the motherboard to the LCD screen. Sometimes mine have moved and this has caused issues with the LCD.

Re: Ubuntu Emergency Mode on Expansion

Good news!!!

Relating to Kernel 5.4...

ALSA in Kernel 5.4 does not auto-detect audio jack hotplugging.

Old kernel still works best for me.

Opera is another lite weight web browser.

Re: can I buy this?

Yes.

O2 Joggler will boot first from a USB stick. The inside eMMC could be in a corrupt state. That said try writing first to the inside eMMC. It might boot.

If not then you can use an external USB stick for the OS.

Re: Free Joggler

Here recently took the oldest O2 Joggler with a failing eMMC and purchased a small footprint USB stick for it and wrote newest Ubuntu image to the USB stick.

Lately using balenaEtcher (Etcher) which runs in Windows, Linux and Macs. Works great. Give it a try.

Happy future birthday Gary!!!

Apologies I did not read your previous post.

I am assuming that you assigned a unique mac address to each Joggler eh?

Re: Joggers getting same IP address

Guessing you made each MAC address unique to each Joggler? Install ethtool sudo apt install ethtool sudo ip link show Each joggler should have a unique MAC address. Then do: sudo ethtool mac_address This will show the hardware nic specs. Both Jogglers hardware mac addresses should be unique. Try thi...

Re: Joggers getting same IP address

You can put a mac address / firmware on the Realtek NIC on the Joggler if you want. 1 - you basically write an image to any USB stick to do this. 2 - replace the EFI bios with a Seabios 3 - write the mac address to the Realtek chip via command line once you boot in to DOS 4 - reboot and hit the F12 ...

Re: Wink Relay V2 to Squeezeplayer

Seen a hack / mod to use 220 or a 220 to 5VDC power supply. Only difference between WiFi is max power here in the US is 200mW and UK is 100mW.

That said I have only only seen WiFi here at up to 100Mw. WiFi frequencies are the same.
