Re: Recommended setup for "new" Joggler

OK, from a quick look on my "good" joggler, the sum0 file should be a text file with the Linux kernel boot parameters in it. The startup.nsh file looks like it tells the EFI BIOS where to look for the bootable system. The "good" one has two lines in it: fs1:boot fs0:boot So it looks like there is co...

Re: Recommended setup for "new" Joggler

Yes, it looks like there is some sort of life. But more to do to properly fix it. 1. Could be. I'll try putting Roobarbs reflasher onto the currently working USB stick that correctly runs xubuntu and see if that helps. 2. I'm using 'dd' - I don't have any Windows computers, just Linux and Mac. 3. I ...

Re: Recommended setup for "new" Joggler

Ok, this is really strange. USB keyboard and Xubuntu USB Key plugged into a USB 2.0 Hub, with that plugged into Joggler. Power on -> ESC repeatedly until keyboard recognised and breaks into boot (can toggle numlock etc). fs0:boot -> about 5 seconds wait with nothing happening -> fs1:boot Grub screen...

Re: Recommended setup for "new" Joggler

OK , first try to burn Xubuntu to a stick , see if that boots first on your dodgy Joggler then on the one that is OK if that doesn't work .It won't harm your Joggler as it's just booting off the stick . Result is pretty much as expected. The "good" Joggler boots into xubuntu. The "bad" Joggler sits...

Re: Recommended setup for "new" Joggler

On the basis that Joggler wasn't booting I've built Roobarbs Reflash on an 8GB USB key (can't get small ones any more!), with the final OpenPeak/O2 v30300 software, intending to reflash the Joggler to a known state before trying anything more adventurous. The Reflash image and the OpenPeak/O2 image ...

Re: Recommended setup for "new" Joggler

I felt like I needed to post an update. Of the two Jogglers, one seems to work really well, the other is possibly bricked :-( The "good" one is running the 26635.S3 software, with a few apps added to it (possibly manually rather than via PNP etc). The hardware is in pristine condition. I'm going to ...

Re: Recommended setup for "new" Joggler

Interesting. I didn't expect a hub to support USB audio, but on thinking about it a bit more, I'm not entirely sure why I thought that :shock: As it happens though, I don't need a wireless connection, so (now I know it exists!) I could use the internal "wifi" USB connector to boot from. So, sounds l...

Recommended setup for "new" Joggler

I've been using a Joggler as my home-office music player for several years now. It's currently running the Version 30300 firmware, and then has Roobarb's Squeezeplay added to the native OS using PnP III (I think!). I feed audio out into a Class T amp with an inbuilt USB DAC. And all works perfectly....

Re: Extending the base OpenPeak firmware

I don't want all of the stuff that PnP3 adds, but I guess I can download it and extract whatever code turns the screen off. But how to compile daemon code (ie cron) for the base (underlying) linux code that OpenPeak are using? I assume that OpenPeak must share their code somewhere to meet their GPL ...

Extending the base OpenPeak firmware

Pretty late to the party, but I've finally updated one of my Jogglers to the new OpenPeak firmware, and I've got it to a state I'm pretty happy with, but I've a couple of areas I'd like to experiment with: controlling the backlight programatically (completely off, as well as varying the brightness),...

Re: Topping amp for Squeezeplay/Joggler?

Yes, the TP30 is still going strong. Sound is great; sweet, clear and musical. As you'd expect for a little 10w chip-amp, it does have it's limitations, but those are almost implicit in this type of tiny amp; they just don't have big current reserves available. That just means that you're never goin...

Re: New OpenPeak firmware update (30th April 2012)

* UPDATE - May 10th 2012 * FROM o2: Would you mind taking down the image we sent you and i will ask that the new image is sent to you as soon as we have it (expect some time next week). "Next week" is nearly over, so I wondered if you'd received any updates on the new image? I've got several Joggle...

Re: Reflashing Tool for the O2 Joggler

Thanks Johnnygal for the reply. I copied the line of script into terminal using my USB stick identifier sdd1 and I think that it was still in the download folder on Ubuntu so it wasn't found. Will post an image of what is on the stick. I have got a little further and have now got a samll output on ...

Re: Reflashing Tool for the O2 Joggler

It seems not. I've been using gzip to pipe the image into dd as per your webpage, but this time I extracted the .img file with FileRoller. Running "file lucid-3.1.9joggler1-r107.img" results in: lucid-3.1.9joggler1-r107.img: x86 boot sector; partition 1: ID=0xe, active, starthead 0, startsector 2048...

Re: Reflashing Tool for the O2 Joggler

I had the same problem when trying to write a USB stick using the instructions for Mac OS X. When I used the procedure given for Windows I was able to mount the USB stick and copy the other files onto it. I used Windows XP running under Fusion on my Mac. Interesting. I just tried again using Window...

Re: Reflashing Tool for the O2 Joggler

I seem to be having real problems creating the bootable USB key. I downloaded the Reflash image from http://birdslikewires.co.uk/download/joggler/ubuntu/lucid-3.1.9joggler1-r107.img.gz and checked the MD5, which was OK. I then downloaded the latest reflash script, and the Open Peak image from http:/...
