One little step forward

19Jun09

Thanks to sythenast from http://franz47root.wordpress.com/2007/07/27/linux-on-nokia-6630/ from him I have received the patched version of ubootloader (v1.42), which advances a step forward, and bumps into protected memory error. More information in the by-others section.

  1. One path we could follow now is trying to find a way to place UBOOT.LDD into the rom.
    I think the most trivial way could be by hacking the tempfile used by Nokia Software Updater during the firmware update.

    That’s an option, but we would have to deal with tracking down all of the checksums etc.

    I am currently in touch with SERRGE,(he is providing pieces of code) and working on a low-level bootloader, since (I think) I have got the kernel-mode privileged process running, which could load the uboot.bin and jump the execution instruction to it.

    Currently it does not work (I am having doubts about the actual kernel-mode that I am in or not after all..; now asking another fellow in a russian forum to do some tests)

    Stay tuned!

    hi! I’m following your works, because I’m working to run linux on my nokia6630; I’ve a question, where is placed the patched version of uboot? Maybe it runs on nokia6630 even if I don’t belive =) However, great work!

    a last thing, why we don’t create a irc channel where meet together all “linux on old phone developers”? maybe on freenode.net

      Good idea. I offer #linomap – Linux on NOkia OMAP phones (just like the future sf project); since we would concentrate on OMAP phones (easier to have the kernel device drivers up), and Nokias as the common challenge to get privileged through the BB5 secutiry into the kernel mode.

      Meet me already there 😉
