They are both running BSD XigmaNAS (a split off from FreeNAS) One case is a Silverstone DS380 and the other a custom smaller 8 d...

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.

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.

Welcome to the O2 Joggler Forum @Scriven33. I have Ubuntu on my laptops here and always expand the base Ubuntu USB stick partition using GParted as mentioned above. Works 100% of the time.

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!!!

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...
