Manual rooting U-boot R10 Toon

Post by EricvL »

Hi guys,

I have a u-boot R10 Toon with an old OS, so I can't use the wireless rooting method. I borrowed a Toon and the ToonRoot script also fails on this Toon. The bootloader replacement seems to be working, but after the reboot of the bootloader the script ends with an input/output error.
So I would like to follow the manual rooting procedure, but there I'm getting stuck. The procedure talks about opening a serial console, to capture the password prompt. But how do I open a serial console on a Raspberry? I have a FTDI adapter, but I can't connect that to the Toon, because the pins are already used by the Raspberry...
Thanks for any help in advance!

Kind regards,
Eric

Please keep using toonrooter. Don't go down the rabbit hole you think you need to go.
Just read the readme of toonrooter because I think you just forget to read evertyhing. The solution for your input/output problem is there.

Hi @TheHogNL,

You're right (of course), I wasn't reading the readme properly and I forgot the serial port/console step. I executed it and now it's working. Thanks!

Kind regards,
Eric
