Toon automated Rooting Cable

Postby Prutzer » Sat Jul 27, 2019 8:27 pm

First of all I would like to thank all the people who made rooting of Toon possible and write those cool apps and features. I was wondering how can I add a little bit of my own. I’m not good at scripting or programming so I made something else.

After rooting a few Toons I thought the cabling could be more easy. So I bought some stuff and made a cable for an easy connection between Toon and a Raspberry pi (tested pi 3 and 3+). Here I will tell you what you need and how to make the cable for the automated rooting script.

I made 2 extra cables and I would like to give them for free to people who made the rooting scripts or made some apps. Send me a message with proof of your work and I will send you a cable for free (I only have 2 cables yet).

Warning: Only use this information for yourself. It is not meant to help you with selling rooted toons on market places or make any profit.

Hardware:
Dupont cable 20 cm female/female from aliexpress, banggood or other chinese shops.

Making the Cable:
Take 11 wires and release them from there single connector by flipping the plastic with a sharp knive.
Hold the 11 wires together.

Image

Make a white mark (Tipp-ex) on pin 1 of the 2x7 and 2x20 pin connectors.
Use the pin layout of the automated root script:

Image

Put the 11 wires in the 2x7 connector: Don’t use pin 1 , 9 and 12
Pin layout:

Image

Now put the wires in the 2x 40 pin connector: (Don’t forget to mark pin one).
Pin layout:

Enjoy your new cable:

Nice one!
MartenJacobs already did that also (https://www.domoticaforum.eu/viewtopic. ... 999#p85908) but you created a nice how-to how to make such a cable yourself!

Nice howto with pictures! :D

Created a few myself too, it's somewhat easier with a crimping tool and 14-wire flat cables.
