Hi,

I am rooting my Toon with newer firmware. I need to install dropbear for new fw.
I converted the ipk to a b64 file. But how can I open serial input on same com as sending the file?

In the manual it states that You need to use putty for opening asci stream and minicom to send the file. Correct?

Grtz.

First of all, why not use the toonrooter script. It does that all for you.

Second, transfering the dropbear ipk over the serial connection is what you need to do (if you don't want to use the toonrooter script or the put-a-lan-cable-in method). If you want to use putty or minicom that is your own choice. You just need a terminal program capable of sending an ascii-stream.

I don't own a pi at the moment. So I wanted to try and root the Toon with only aa ftdi device?
Are there other options without a pi. What is de put in Lan-Cable method?

You can run the (python) script on windows/linux also :)

Just put a LAN cable into the Toon while you are in the uboot-modified shell (so after /bin/sh: can't access tty; job control turned off
) . Then just manually config an IP address on the toon eth0 interface or let udhcpc do its job. From then on you can just download dropbear on the toon using wget and then install it.

Thx, got a bit further. Downloaded the dropbear on the Toon. But when installing I got this error.

Read about it in de past posts. But cannot find a working solution.

Collected errors:
* pkg_run_script: package "dropbear" postinst script returned status 255.
* opkg_configure: dropbear.postinst returned 255.

That is normal, just run the postinst script manually ( sh /usr/lib/opkg/info/dropbear.postinst )

Inmiddels succesvol mijn Toon geroot. Na wat troubles ook VNC erop gekregen. En ik heb nog de verwarming moeten aanpassen van stadsverwarming naar ketel.
Bedankt voor de hulp. Ik ben er zelfs achter dat ik een opentherm ketel heb. Dat wist ik nog niet.
