Where did you download the rooting script? You are using older versions. This is the place where you need to download:https://github.com/ToonSoftwareCollective/Root-A-Toon

Also, http://qutility.nl/dropbear_2015.71-r0_qb2.ipk should still work but not for you. Are you blocking internet access from the toon to the internet?

Hi TheHogNl,
I was using this script
https://github.com/IgorYbema/Root-A-Toon
so far.

Now I have downloaded your latest one.
I am running this on a PI to which I connect the Toon via WIFI, with access to the internet.

So now I reset the Toon and I am waiting for it to ask me to activate it again. It did do this before and I used the activation script but right now it is just sitting there, connected to the network and with the little box saying:
"activieren by service center".
What can I do now to get it to the activation screen again?

Once this is done I will try to run your updated script.

Thanks,

Merc

Once activated it should not come back with another activation request. Weird. But because your root attempt failed but did do a part of the rooting, this will not work anymore I am afraid.
You will need the older method with opening the Toon1, connecting cables from the Pi to the toon and using the ToonRooter script

I was expecting you to say this.

So which is the latest rooting script for the traditional way then? Dont want to use the wrong one again.

Thanks for your help.

but a Toon1 can always be recovered whatever you do wrong (on software) :) https://github.com/ToonSoftwareCollective/ToonRecovery

Can you tell me where you found the old github link? I already removed the repository there but want to remove the old link in documentations also

Hi there,
so right at the moment the hardware rooting is running. I am in the process of updating the software to the latest version.
In the console I can see a lot of "y" flashing and on the Toon's screen it says updating software but I am not sure if the progress bar is still moving

Is this the way it should be? Seems to take quite a while and all the informative text messages have disappeared.

Thanks for this script.

Hi TheHogNL,
I tried to find where I had picked up this "old" link to Github but cannot recall anymore.
I had bookmarked the page after I had found it.

It was a forum of some kind. If I will find it again I will let you know.

Thanks,

Merc


the toon is still updating the software and the shell is printing a lot of y's

Should not take that long. If it is still running break it and try again. Hopefully it will pick up. If not, your last thing you can try is the ToonRecovery :(
