Well, still managed to brick it :shock:
The loop was still going in the serial console. Figured out it was a botched busybox installation.
In my lack of knowledge, I deleted busybox from the Toon to fix it.
and now linux wont boot anymore because it doesnt recognise any commands in the init.d

Managed to run toonrecovery from the Pi and get into the serial console. But it stops doing anything after this:

Code: Select all

IP-Config: Complete:
     device=eth0, addr=192.168.178.74, mask=255.255.255.0, gw=192.168.178.150,
     host=toon, domain=, nis-domain=(none),
     bootserver=192.168.178.150, rootserver=192.168.178.150, rootpath=
Looking up port of RPC 100003/3 on 192.168.178.150

Looks the same as this: viewtopic.php?p=92714#p92714
He eventually said it was NFS server related (external instead of on the Pi).
But you can also try those suggestions I posted there to figure out wat is going on.
Seems to be that the Toon in recovery isn't getting data from the NFS server to boot correctly after the initial kernel boot.

I just opened my NFS server on the internet for you to use.
So run the toonrecovery with my server (see below) to boot from there and fix your toon.

Code: Select all

 sudo python . --jtag-available --serial-port /dev/serial0 --serverip 54.38.183.159

I'm trying to root an Toon 1 and got stuck.
It has an u-boot 2010.09-r10. I never tried it. I looked up many tutorials and finally tried all of this:

The script from Marten Jacobs (https://github.com/ToonSoftwareCollective/ToonRooter) prepared an RaspPi and followed all the steps but had several problems.
python-serial can't be found anywhere. Python is on 3.5 and not 2.7 and I don't know if it matters.

I even tried the older way but that's very confusing for someone who doesn't know enough linux code. I get to the point of setting TOON on hold but it won't overwrite/flash the U-Boot password on some address.

After this I tried the root-A-Toon-USB-Stick method (https://github.com/JackV2020/Root-A-Toon-USB-Stick). For this method I updated the TOON a few times. It was on an very old firmware. I've updated it to I think twice. First to 5. something and after then again to 6.something.

I switched to the original root-A-Toon method (https://github.com/ToonSoftwareCollective/Root-A-Toon). I got my pi set as a router and got it connected but now comes the problem. It should show an activation button but it won't show up. It is connected to the internet but that's it.

So in the end I'm stuck and don't know what to do next. Can somebody tell me what to do. I tried to read as much as possible but there is a lot of info :D
