The partition indeed contains a kernel, with a build-in initramfs, which contains commands like 'flash_eraseall' and 'nandwrite'. So I suppose it's a dedicated Linux system, used for updating, and maybe recovery.mushupork wrote:I FTP'd the file to you.
However, the file is damaged. gunzip fails halfway. The md5sum of the file is c512ec3dbfb5cc21e5a331327668f9d9. If yours is different, can you reupload it? If it isn't different, try to extract it again. When it's still the same, it's possible that your box is faulty, and you can't recover and/or update.
I think so. Maybe you can remount the rootfs writable?I used the modified mount string and the single message written to mount.log is
"mount: mounting /dev/mtdblock3 on /tmp/mountpoint failed: Device or resource busy"
The weird part if it does succeed in mounting because I can browse to /tmp/mountpoint and see the jffs file system but I cannot create/modify anything there. I am guessing it is showing the "failure" to mount it as writable.
Code: Select all
mount -o remount,rw /dev/mtdblock3 /
