I tried to use the auto root script on my R8 bootloader, using the serial to USB interface. But nothing happened.
So I started doing the manual process.
When i needed to reboot the Toon, the auto root script started automatically.
Great. Only, it doesnt work. Its stuck in an loop.
From the logs:
Code: Select all
Installing dropbear (2015.71-r0) to root...
update-alternatives: Error: not linking //etc/passwd to passwd.busybox since //etc/passwd exists and is not a link
update-alternatives: Error: not linking //etc/group to group.busybox since //etc/group exists and is not a link
update-alternatives: Linking //usr/bin/scp to /usr/sbin/dropbearmulti
update-alternatives: Linking //usr/bin/ssh to /usr/sbin/dropbearmulti
System startup links for /etc/init.d/dropbear already exist.
* resolve_conffiles: Existing conffile /etc/default/dropbear is different from the conffile in the new package. The new conffile will be placed at /etc/default/dropbear-opkg.
* pkg_run_script: package "busybox-passwd" postinst script returned status 1.
* opkg_configure: busybox-passwd.postinst returned 1.
This just repeats over and over.
Any idea how I can either have the auto root script finish. Or at least how to get out of this startup loop?
I can SSH into the toon. But the root has a password that I dont have...
Also tried to reconnect the screen and do a factory reset. But that didnt change anything.
Disconnecting the ethernet cable just makes the script "waiting for internet" over and over.
Tried the https://github.com/ToonSoftwareCollective/ToonRecovery
with my Pi. It says it boots in recovery on the Pi. But when i switch to serial the Toon reboots and starts the script again
Ran the auto root script from the RPI and it worked. Problem solved.
