02:31 CEnnis91 [mbm]: i may have found someone with a stock 16gb model
02:33 CEnnis91 [mbm]: (if i can get this person in #motoactv) do you want to step them through?
02:33 [mbm] sure
02:38 CEnnis91 [mbm]: Bugaboo75 would be the name you're looking for if im not around
02:38 CEnnis91 told him to join here
02:38 [mbm] left #motoactv

03:03 [mbm] CEnnis91: any interest in repacking the stock firmware in a more user friendly format?
03:11 CEnnis91 [mbm]: meaning what?
03:12 CEnnis91 the fxz you mentioned last night?
03:12 CEnnis91 i know this is going to be fastboot related
03:13 [mbm] https://pastee.org/ubv3v
03:14 CEnnis91 [mbm]: no, absolutely not
03:14 CEnnis91 not for some of the ppl i have seen
03:15 CEnnis91 bootloaders will be wiped left and right
03:16 CEnnis91 i dont trust some of the ppl in this community unfortunately
03:17 [mbm] that's actually the file for a bioni
03:18 [mbm] *bionic
03:18 [mbm] and yeah, I wouldn't flash the bootloader either
03:18 CEnnis91 but the fact that the command to flash bootloader is easier, im hesitant
03:19 CEnnis91 <removed> question
03:19 CEnnis91 <removed> can you change out the updater-script without re-zipping?
03:19 CEnnis91 <removed> like, can I just drop it in and flash again?
03:19 CEnnis91 <removed> gonna try it lol
03:19 CEnnis91 ^ [mbm] that's what ive been working with
03:19 [mbm] that's hy I'm suggesting switching formats
03:20 CEnnis91 by giving more control over the device partitions?
03:20 CEnnis91 im just so iffy on that
03:20 [mbm] meaning they can just point their pirated copy of rsd lite at a zip file without even unzipping and it'll reflash according to the steps in the xml
03:21 CEnnis91 rsd lite was free last time i checked, but tahts beyond the point
03:21 [mbm] just need to do a minimal xml with only a handful of partitions like boot, and system
03:22 CEnnis91 [mbm]: i suppose if we only did this for stock firmware, but not the "custom roms"
03:22 CEnnis91 (even thou thats what you said -- i feel like you want this to be the standard way of flashing)
03:22 CEnnis91 for this device
03:23 [mbm] I don't really give a damn how people flash custom roms
03:23 [mbm] but all the warnings about "don't root or you'll never be able to go bak to stock" are absolutely wrong
03:23 CEnnis91 with the files given that was trust
03:23 CEnnis91 truth* no one had an actual stock image
03:24 CEnnis91 until you provided the stock 5.6.0 images
03:24 [mbm] the fxz thing is a pretty well established way to reflash moto devices
03:24 CEnnis91 i have no issue with this, are you sure it supports it?
03:25 CEnnis91 or is this just a hunch, before you continue
03:25 [mbm] rsd is just a glorified front end for fastboot these days
03:25 CEnnis91 oh
03:25 [mbm] it's pretty obvious how lines 11-25 translate to fastboot commands
03:26 CEnnis91 yes
03:26 CEnnis91 also, is this how you came up with the reboot-recovery command?
03:27 [mbm] nope.
03:28 CEnnis91 [mbm]: howd you find it then, the source doesnt show such a command
03:29 CEnnis91 reboot and reboot-bootloader
03:29 [mbm] hmm? reboot and reboot-bootloader are standard fastboot commands shown on the fastboot help screen
03:29 [mbm] there's no reboot-recovery though
03:30 [mbm] for that you need to write to the misc partition
03:30 CEnnis91 yea what i meant was, is there anywhere where that is documented
03:31 [mbm] surprisingly yes, although I didn't realize it until after I had figured it out
03:32 [mbm] if you go poking around the milestone gpl sources you'll find a motorola/bsp/motobox/masterclear.c
03:32 CEnnis91 so this is a motorola addition rather then an aosp feature?
03:32 [mbm] yep
03:32 CEnnis91 ah, so thats why i didnt see it
03:32 [mbm] motobox is a mini busybox like util for some of moto's own commands
03:32 CEnnis91 yes
03:32 CEnnis91 boot-recovery is a command in there?
03:33 [mbm] and the fatory reset seems to run masterclear
03:33 [mbm] which then writes to misc
03:33 CEnnis91 so any device with motobox has a (roundabout) boot to recovery
03:33 CEnnis91 any moto device*
03:34 [mbm] https://pastee.org/rhh9x
03:34 CEnnis91 ^ masterclear.c?
03:35 [mbm] yep
03:35 [mbm] line 49 shows the format
03:35 [mbm] line 239 shows how it gets used
03:35 CEnnis91 heh interesting
03:35 CEnnis91 now if you didnt use this, how did you figure it out
03:36 [mbm] pulled apart pieces of the bootloader
03:36 CEnnis91 hex?
03:36 CEnnis91 or unpacked
03:36 [mbm] -> asm
03:36 CEnnis91 ah
03:37 CEnnis91 you are so low-level its ridiculous
03:37 cmw lol
03:37 CEnnis91 so wait a second...
03:37 [mbm] the other way to get into recovery is more fun
03:38 [mbm] reboot command passes an argument
03:38 cmw [mbm]: that's standard tho
03:38 [mbm] kernel intercepts that and sets a few registers
03:38 CEnnis91 [mbm]: is this a root exploit for essentially all future moto devices?
03:38 CEnnis91 [mbm]: yea that is standard
03:38 [mbm] CEnnis91: what, being able to boot into recovery is now an exploit?
03:38 cmw CEnnis91: you don't need a root exploit if you control the chain of trust
03:39 cmw not that there is a chain on the motov
03:39 [mbm] only reason what I'm doing works is because the motoactv doesn't give a damn that reovery is unsigned
03:39 [mbm] cmw: is misc a standard?
03:39 CEnnis91 oh, i forogt about that
03:39 cmw [mbm]: misc?
03:39 cmw i meant the reboot arg
03:39 [mbm] oh, yeah knew that one
03:40 [mbm] although it's kind of hard to set registers from fastboot
03:40 cmw [mbm]: i never did figure out if there was a way to go to recovery on boot
03:40 cmw did you?
03:40 [mbm] didn't find any keys to do it but what we were just discussing is that you can write commands for the bootloader to flash using the misc partition
03:41 [mbm] so by reflashing misc from fastboot you can force the next bootup into recovery
03:41 CEnnis91 cmw: the only thing this will accomplish will allow us to pull the 16gb's boot.img on a stock device
03:41 [mbm] would have been a nice trick for those droid1 sbf files that reflashed recovery
03:42 cmw i havent touched my motov for a while :p
03:42 cmw i should charge it up
03:42 cmw been working on this damn vita exploit
03:43 CEnnis91 cmw: you should give it to me for a while, so i can actually get stuff done on this device
03:43 CEnnis91 ;)
03:43 CEnnis91 im done playing remote support
03:45 [mbm] CEnnis91: you need one of those huge ass animated banner sigs with the annoying graphics that link to your paypal account while establishing your team affiliation
03:46 CEnnis91 [mbm]: with quotes and the devices i use?
03:46 [mbm] actually for all I know you may already have one; there's a nice pref in xda that lets me disable that crap
03:46 CEnnis91 oh?
03:46 * CEnnis91 looks
03:47 CEnnis91 [mbm]: only thing i would ever include in there is giving a link to my own channel
03:47 CEnnis91 which i dont have any use for, so i refrain from such
03:47 [mbm] CEnnis91: quote for your sig: "<[mbm]> who the **&$# is CEnnis91?"
03:47 CEnnis91 heh
03:48 CEnnis91 [mbm]: you remember off-hand where this setting is?
03:48 CEnnis91 ah found it nvm
03:48 * [mbm] turned off avatars and sigs
03:49 [mbm] might have also been an option to turn off font colors
03:50 CEnnis91 dont see one
03:51 [mbm] although font colors do serve as a warning sign that you've wasted your time by even skimming the post; bright colors are nature's way of telling you someone is dangerous or an idiot
03:57 CEnnis91 but how will you know my post is important if i dont post it in bright red?
03:58 [mbm] the fact it's not one of the sticked posts at the top with a few thousand single word replies?
04:01 CEnnis91 anyway back to your original question, who did you expect to make the fxz?
04:01 CEnnis91 did you want me to? or just me to release what you made
04:03 * [mbm] stares blankly at CEnnis91 until he gets the hint
04:03 CEnnis91 got it
04:09 [mbm] need to figure out why the 'fastboot boot' command is useless
04:09 [mbm] every time I try to boot from ram it just sits there at the moto logo
04:14 [mbm] hmm.. misc trick doesn't work on the bionic
04:14 [mbm] sending 'misc' (512 KB)...
04:14 [mbm] OKAY [  0.044s]
04:14 [mbm] writing 'misc'...
04:14 [mbm] (bootloader) Command restricted
04:20 CEnnis91 so thats signed too?
04:21 [mbm] fastboot has some annoying 'don't shoot yourself in the foot' restrictions
04:22 CEnnis91 yea, you mentioned that, but they dont exist on the motoactv?
04:23 CEnnis91 what is misc used for anyway, android-wise
04:26 [mbm] android doesn't touch misc
04:27 CEnnis91 oh
04:27 ds2 in otherwords, it is safer then dd ;)
04:48 [mbm] ah, do that's what motoboot does :/
04:48 [mbm] note to self, don't play with fastboot
04:52 ds2 fastboot is your friend. you should play with your friends
04:54 [mbm] do me a favor and send me the first 512k of mmcblk1
04:54 [mbm] need to check something
04:54 ds2 me?
04:54 ds2 or ?
04:55 [mbm] anyone with a motoactv handy
04:57 ds2 how do you want it?
04:58 ds2 blah
04:59 ds2 #!@$!@$ dd on there doesn't understand 'k'
04:59 [mbm] heh
04:59 ds2 okay, it is sitting somewhere... how do I get it to you?
05:00 ds2 let me upload it somewhere
05:00 [mbm] oldschool dcc is fine if your irc client supports it
05:00 [mbm] otherwise yeah, just toss it somewhere
05:00 ds2 I think my NAT kills it
05:00 ds2 let me toss it somewhere
05:02 ds2 sent you the URL
05:04 ds2 hmmm is this right... the 5.6.0 code will charge off of a USB port?!
05:09 [mbm] probably
05:35 [mbm] ds2: still around?
05:37 ds2 one sec...512k?
05:38 [mbm] yeah, but that's actually the entire size of that one ;)
05:38 ds2 Oh hehe
05:43 [mbm] huh, thought that was my mistake, yours is only 1k as well
05:45 ds2 yes, I noticed it
05:46 ds2 this is the extended partition table, I assume?
05:46 [mbm] yep
05:47 [mbm] my device is convinced it only has 6 partitions :/
05:48 ds2 that doesn't sound right
05:50 [mbm] was testing a backup/restore and restored a truncated ebr
05:51 [mbm] so basically I've corrupted bytes 0x180000-0x1FFFFF of mmcblk1
05:51 ds2 that might need a magic ioctl call
05:51 [mbm] if you'd be so kind as to run another dd for me so I can grab those
05:52 ds2 can you generate the dd command line for me?
05:52 ds2 be happy too but a bit tired to figure the offsets
05:53 [mbm] dd if=mmcblk1 bs=512 skip=3072 count=1024 of=ebr
05:55 ds2 transfering
05:59 [mbm] yep, that fixed the partition table
06:01 ds2 heh
06:01 [mbm] there, device is happy again
06:01 ds2 surgical fixes to partition tables...hehe
06:02 [mbm] yep, good thing I have my factory cable as well; playing around in fastboot drained my battery
06:03 [mbm] note to self - next time backup the mmcblk1 and not the individual partitions no matter how much more convient it may seem
06:03 ds2 DOH
06:03 ds2 so you have confirmed fastboot cannot charge?
06:03 [mbm] well, usb cable was plugged in the entire time :P
06:03 [mbm] had to switch to the factory cable when the battery got low
06:04 ds2 sigh....
06:05 [mbm] yeah, all moto phones suffer the dead battery while in fastboot potential brick
06:05 [mbm] fine if the battery is removable and can be externally charged
06:06 ds2 what happens if battery drains while running?
06:06 [mbm] but newer devices with the non-removable batteries pretty much force you to have a factory cable
06:06 [mbm] if the device is completely off then it charges the battery to around 5% and turns on
06:07 [mbm] at that point it'd better not go into fastboot or you'll be in an endless cycle
06:07 [mbm] you really need it to boot into normal or charge mode
06:07 [mbm] even recovery doesn't charge the battery :/
06:09 ds2 blah

11:04 dproldan hi
11:14 Snoothy >_>
11:16 JohnDoe_ Any progress on getting Google Player working yet?
11:16 kr1t1c4l- joined #motoactv
11:17 JohnDoe_ Ex-Market I mean...
11:25 JohnDoe_ Is there anyone still in here?
11:35 dproldan hi
11:36 dproldan yes, it works with the rooted 5.6.0 zip and the gaps from 20110307.  install both from recovery,  plus a launcher,  and market will work
11:37 dproldan search doesn't work yet ,  but there's a program made by Ianas that allows you to search
11:37 dproldan afk
11:42 JohnDoe_ I already have the 5.6.0 rooted image installed and most everything is working, I will flash the goo.inside me image from the date you suggest and see how it works...
11:42 JohnDoe_ I assume there are still 'FC's with the other programs, should I pull out the vending apk and install stand alone?
11:45 JohnDoe_ Ianas : if you are in here, could you share with me (us) what soft we (I) need to use to search Market?
11:52 dproldan-mob joined #motoactv
12:02 JohnDoe_ Thanks dproldan...  I will flash the goo zip and manually erradicate the others if they FC on me.
12:12 dproldan I don't know what will happen if you delete things
12:13 dproldan there are plenty of FC's but market works,  Gmail too
12:21 JohnDoe_ droldan: contacts work from this zip?
12:22 dproldan lemme check,  haven't tried
12:23 dproldan hm?  it's not there
12:24 JohnDoe_ Contacts apk is not present in the zip, I think it needs to be installed seperately.  Normal Androids already have it in their ROMs but we dont have it in ours.
12:24 dproldan yep
12:25 JohnDoe_ On the same note, Gmail APK is not there either... how do you or did you install it?
12:25 dproldan I installed gmail from the market
12:25 JohnDoe_ cool...
12:26 dproldan let's try for contacts...
12:26 JohnDoe_ just need to know how to search for gmail when its there... anything Ianas?
12:27 dproldan just go to market,  find a google app browsing and check "more applications from this developer"
12:36 dproldan let me know if you're trying,  would like to confirm
12:38 JohnDoe_ Just installed the zip and it broke my Google Music thus far, maybe an update to do.  It was working before.  I am in Market and signed it too (awesome)
12:38 JohnDoe_ Just cannot search for anything without FC
12:41 dproldan yeah,  you need to browse your way
12:42 JohnDoe_ At least my device is showing up now in the desktop browser and I dont have to hunt around for APKs on the net!  Just installing them OTA, will try a few
12:44 dproldan oh,  I didn't try that
12:44 JohnDoe_ Google Service Framework is crashing still when trying to install OTA, not sure if even capable of installing from Market on the watch either, will try
12:45 dproldan it does install,  give it some seconds
12:48 dproldan oh, you're right.
12:48 dproldan I just tried to install something from the store webpage
12:48 dproldan it doesn't install automatically
12:48 JohnDoe_ Mine is throwing the same Service Framework crash when I try from the watch as well... you installed gmail FROM the watch without these errors?
12:48 dproldan but at least it appears on "my apps" on the MotoACTV
12:49 JohnDoe_ just not installed though
12:49 dproldan there were a lot of errors,  but it installed..
12:51 dproldan now I even have updates in the market app
12:53 JohnDoe_ I installed a newer Google Music and it is no longer throwing Framework errors, I is Happy :)
12:53 dproldan good
12:56 JohnDoe_ It just disappeared from my programs, I am confused... I no longer see it!  Google Music I mean.
12:56 dproldan I installed Astro File manager right now from the Store webpage,  sent to the MotoACTV,  opened the market app,  and it was waiting there, I had to cancel the download,  but selected install again and it did correctly
12:57 dproldan heh
12:57 dproldan we need to get rid of this motorola crap,  fast
12:58 cmw ya would be nice to kill their stupid boot splash screen
12:58 cmw and replace with pure fb console
13:01 dproldan that would be a bit too hardcore for me :-)
13:02 JohnDoe_ rebooted and it is back, no idea why but there aren't anymore framework errors (except possibly when installing something) I am going to test more
13:02 dproldan really?  no framework errors?
13:03 dproldan tell us what you have installed,  let's see if it's reproducible
13:05 JohnDoe_ I flashed the goo.inside.me from 110703, it is throwing up Framework errors and FCing.  I installed a newer player which no longer throws the framework error, http://www.mediafire.com/?2q4x7xo3xwz9t8u I could not install from Google Play because of my country
13:06 JohnDoe_ No framework errors ONLY on the Goolge Music app
13:07 myo900 joined #motoactv
13:07 myo900 hi
13:07 dproldan good
13:07 JohnDoe_ Still cannot install anything through Market (watch) or Play (desktop) without framework errors
13:08 dproldan I still get frameworks and gaps force close,  but things are installing fine,  from the market app and from the pay store web
13:09 JohnDoe_ Google Music is again GONE from my watch!  Google fuckers are using location-based stuff, they are worse than SOPA!
13:10 JohnDoe_ This is the first time I have ever been violated like this...
13:10 dproldan heh
13:10 JohnDoe_ I did NOT uninstall the app, it uninstalled itself!
13:10 JohnDoe_ WTF?
13:11 dproldan just be thankful you have all of this for free
13:11 JohnDoe_ true... but still
13:11 dproldan yeah,  not funny
13:12 dproldan wow,  jusr installed bluetooth file transfer
13:12 dproldan i can find flies from my mac now
13:21 myo900 j
13:29 JohnDoe_ Music version 4.1.513 and 4.1.512 are errased after openning them once if you are not in the USA :{
13:46 JohnDoe_ Reinstalled Music version 3.0 and it stays, no FCs this time
13:49 cmw joined #motoactv
13:51 JohnDoe_ Framework FCing on market install as well as OTA...
13:53 dproldan so, have you been able to install anything from the market?   even with the errors,  it works here
13:55 JohnDoe_ I have been unable to install anything via the market or OTA without FCs and all, nothing will install.
13:55 JohnDoe_ Should I reflash, THEN clear dalvic cache before rebooting?  I did not try that last install...
13:56 dproldan probably,  I tried it several times.    put the 5.6.0 rooted zip and the gaps-20110307-signed.zip in the sdcard
13:56 dproldan reboot into recovery
13:57 dproldan factory reset,  clear cache, clear dalvik cache
13:57 dproldan flash 5.6.0.rooted.zip
13:57 dproldan flash gapps 20110307
13:57 dproldan reboot
13:57 dproldan do the motorola setup thing
13:58 khaost joined #motoactv
13:58 dproldan use the mod tool to install a launcher,  modify keys,  change the packageInstaller
13:59 dproldan now maybe I setup my google account with GTalk,  then market was working
13:59 dproldan everything else I have installed from the market
13:59 khaost Hello, is there any way to disable adb permanently after "return to stock"?
14:03 JohnDoe_ build.prop
14:03 dproldan I don't know a lot about it, I think you have to edit build.prop,  find an entry with adb permanent or something like that…
14:03 JohnDoe_ persistent I think it is called
14:04 khaost Thanks~I will try to figure it out
14:10 JohnDoe_ I wiped dalvic and there are less Framework errors, it seems that soft is being installed through the Market
14:10 JohnDoe_ even after the errors
14:12 JohnDoe_ Where I am in the world, its quittin' time.  Thanks for the help, see y'all next time.

17:44 Guest72046 how do i get the market on it tho and like browser and what not.
17:45 utkanos dproldan: you want to field that?
17:47 Guest72046 field.. whats that
17:48 utkanos as in, answer that question

17:48 utkanos his last post in this thread goes over the market stuff
17:48 Guest72046 thank you so much
17:49 Guest72046 you have litteraly saved my life
17:49 utkanos lol
17:49 Guest72046 o.o
17:49 utkanos that sounds hyperbolic, but I'm glad I could help
17:49 utkanos lol.
18:11 CEnnis91 [mbm]: does this fxz you mentioned need to be signed like an update.zip, or just zipped?
20:40 [mbm] CEnnis91|Away: just zippee, and as I said before it can be the same zip you use in recovery if you include the meta-inf
20:40 [mbm] utkanos: back
20:40 [mbm] well, semi..
20:41 utkanos ok
20:41 utkanos whats up
20:55 christefano joined #motoactv
20:57 utkanos [mbm]: I tried your suggestion with the connected state, still no usb :\
20:57 utkanos I'm thinking I need to alter the declaration of that function to only return 1 (connected)
20:57 utkanos as opposed to just calling it with 1, that seemed to have no effect at all
21:01 [mbm] utkanos: probably fighting a race condition
21:01 [mbm] I did notice that when I turned off framebuffer console it broke
21:02 [mbm] but figured I must have forgotten something and just reverted the changes
21:02 utkanos interesting
21:02 utkanos I'm going to modify the function declaration in mot_android.c
21:02 utkanos in the usb gadget code
21:02 [mbm] anyway, need to figure out the proper way
21:02 utkanos and see if that helps, unless you had a diff suggestion
21:02 utkanos yeah it's sort of chicken and egg at this point though, I cant really debug anything without a way to debug it :P
21:03 [mbm] guessing usbd sends some sort of connected command to the usb_device_mode
21:04 utkanos so I figure by making it impossible to not be connected, that might help at least lay the groundwork for troubleshooting some issues
21:11 [mbm] just did a quick trace - charge_only, usb_cable_detach, msc, usb_cable_detach
21:11 [mbm] don't see it sending an attach message
21:13 [mbm] really should figure out the moto android gadget because otherwise usb doesn't charge
21:14 utkanos yeah, at least in recovery
21:14 utkanos it charges in fastboot and the rom
21:14 utkanos using the moto gadget
21:23 [mbm] huh? doesn't charge in fastboot
21:23 [mbm] played around in fastboot yesterday evening and it drained my batter in just over an hour
21:24 [mbm] also got pretty damn hot burning through all that energy
21:31 utkanos mine does
21:31 utkanos and the light comes on
21:32 utkanos I only know because I let it die and couldn't charge it
21:32 utkanos and the battery was too low to program
21:32 utkanos but if I left it plugged in, the light came on
21:32 ds2 I wonder if fastboot is running the OMAP at 600MHz
21:32 ds2 it would account for the higher power drain
21:32 utkanos I eventually unplugged it and plugged it into the wall for a faster charge
21:33 utkanos it gets hot as shit in recovery and fastboot though, you're right about that
22:05 cmw joined #motoactv
22:08 [mbm] ds2: probably has 600mhz, wifi, bt, gps, screen at full brightness, no power management ..
22:14 ds2 [mbm]: no PM is assumed. I doubt wifi as that requires a firmware load
22:14 ds2 there are a few registers one can set to drop it to something slower then 600MHz
22:20 [mbm] yeah, the opp
22:21 [mbm] stock kernel bounces between 300 and 600 using cpufreq
22:21 [mbm] should try dropping to 150 or lower to test battery life
22:21 ds2 yep
22:22 CEnnis91 [mbm]: what are the steps?
22:22 CEnnis91 300/450/600?
22:23 [mbm] lol, stock is just 300/600
22:23 CEnnis91 *sigh* moto
22:47 utkanos joined #motoactv
23:02 utkanos well [mbm] your kernel works but not with cwmr, only the stock recovery
23:02 utkanos re: usb access
23:07 [mbm] odd
23:07 utkanos yeah
23:07 utkanos thats why it wasnt working for me heh
23:07 [mbm] can't imagine why cw would change anything
23:07 utkanos I put my kernel in your ramdisk
23:07 utkanos and it booted
23:08 utkanos or rather, paired it with your ramdisk
23:08 utkanos the stock one
23:08 [mbm] did you copy my init.rc?
23:08 utkanos I used everything from yours except the zImage, yes
23:08 utkanos but if I boot it with my repacked ramdisk with cwmr in it
23:08 utkanos no dice
23:09 [mbm] oh, so you got my modified stock recovery to give an abd shell with your kernel
23:09 utkanos yes
23:10 utkanos meaning my kernel was working fine
23:10 utkanos wednesday
23:10 [mbm] what I was asking is if you tried cw with my kernel and init.rc changes
23:10 utkanos ah
23:10 utkanos I used your kernel but not your init
23:10 utkanos I noticed the adb lines, but I am setting those via default.prop
23:10 utkanos ill try your init.rc though
23:12 [mbm] was thinking more about how I added a /dev/usb_device_mode when creating the ramdisk, and the init.rc line to write to that
23:13 utkanos ah
23:13 utkanos did you see my way via busybox?
23:13 [mbm] yeah, lold and did a write command instead
23:13 utkanos :P
23:13 utkanos I'll try the write then
23:15 [mbm] I wasn't sure when usb_device_mode was created so I included it in the ramdisk
23:15 utkanos i see
23:15 utkanos wow, got some blue framebuffer :P
23:15 utkanos wow
23:16 utkanos that was it
23:16 [mbm] hmm? yeah I have fbcon in my kernel
23:16 [mbm] what was it?
23:17 utkanos your write
23:17 utkanos versus the busybox line
23:17 [mbm] adb works now?
23:17 utkanos well
23:17 utkanos it shows up in lsusb
23:17 utkanos there is an error running adb shell but I can fix that
23:17 [mbm] heh yeah, busybox /system/bin/sh
23:18 utkanos yep
23:19 [mbm] btw, see what I told CEnnis91 earlier about repacking the stock images so they can be reflashed from rsd?
23:23 utkanos no thats nice though
23:23 utkanos was gone most of the day sry
23:23 [mbm] you know what an fxz is?
23:24 utkanos not really other than that bionic uses them
23:24 [mbm] zip file, *.img partition dumps and an xml file
23:25 [mbm] xml file lists fastboot flash commands
23:25 [mbm] rsd just walks the xml and runs the fastboot commands
23:26 [mbm] same zip file can also have update-binary which would make it compatible with cw
23:27 utkanos ah cool
23:27 utkanos how convenient :P
23:27 dproldan just finished building cm7 for f100...
23:28 [mbm] thought you'd like that
23:28 [mbm] dproldan: cut and paste of sholes?
23:29 dproldan mostly,  I pulled some libs from the stock system,  edited some scripts,
23:30 [mbm] don't see why you'd need any stock libs
23:30 dproldan removed some apps,  there's not enough space
23:30 [mbm] sensors work?
23:30 dproldan gps.G2.so,  and things like that
23:30 dproldan still haven't flashed  :-)
23:31 utkanos [mbm]: clockwork with adb works :)
23:31 CEnnis91 dproldan: you made a vendor?
23:31 utkanos thank you for all the help
23:31 * CEnnis91 still doesnt see the point of any aosp rom on this device
23:31 dproldan CEnnis91:  yeah
23:31 [mbm] thinking that one of the other moto phones had msp430
23:32 dproldan CEnnis91:  you don't have force closes  and errors with many apps?
23:32 [mbm] utkanos: the whale is dead, what now ishmael?
23:32 CEnnis91 dproldan: on the motoactv?
23:33 utkanos [mbm]: now on to the next device :)
23:33 dproldan CEnnis91: yes?
23:33 CEnnis91 dproldan: nope, no issues here (granted i dont have the device ;) )
23:33 dproldan utkanos: congrats
23:33 dproldan bah  :-)
23:33 utkanos shall I call you starbuck?
23:33 CEnnis91 dproldan: ive yet to see this thing in person
23:33 utkanos dproldan: thank mbm, he got it working
23:33 CEnnis91 hopefully ill have it next week
23:33 dproldan [mbm]: thanks!
23:34 [mbm] utkanos: oh, so CEnnis91 gets your motoactv?
23:34 CEnnis91 [mbm]: kinda
23:34 CEnnis91 the guy wants to sell this one, so we have to do some kinda swap with a different one
23:34 utkanos [mbm]: it wasn't mine to begin with, it was from a user, I am sending to CEnnis91 so he can work more on rom stuff
23:35 dproldan well,  going to sleep,  will flash tomorrow.
23:35 CEnnis91 lol
23:35 CEnnis91 dproldan: idk how youcan build and just say "im not gonna flash"
23:37 utkanos though I would like to figure out a more elegant fix, perhaps CEnnis91 can pick up there
23:37 dproldan this is not going to work anyway,  it's 1:35 am,  my daughter is waking up at 8:00...
23:38 CEnnis91 1:35am?
23:38 CEnnis91 where the hell is he
23:39 utkanos spain
23:40 CEnnis91 utkanos: elegant fix for what?
23:40 utkanos forcing the usb connection in the kernel
23:40 CEnnis91 oh this works with a custom kernel?
23:40 CEnnis91 or just the write command
23:41 utkanos yes to the kernel, has some changes
23:44 CEnnis91 utkanos: oh, also, we can fastboot this in now right?
23:44 utkanos haven't played with that
23:45 CEnnis91 thatll make rooting the 16gb easier
23:45 CEnnis91 [mbm]: will this work fully on the 16gb, or should there be a separate build?
23:45 utkanos I would think you'd want a different kernel
23:46 [mbm] CEnnis91: wait, how is utkanos's adb enabled recovery any easier than the one I did a few days ago?
23:47 [mbm] guessing same recovery works on both
23:48 CEnnis91 [mbm]: utkanos mentioned it didnt work initially
23:48 [mbm] huh?
23:48 [mbm] my recovery worked just fine
23:48 CEnnis91 *shrug*
23:48 CEnnis91 either way
23:49 * [mbm] inserts a few comments about utkanos' momma
23:49 utkanos lol
23:49 CEnnis91 [mbm]: you mentioned not to use it more then pulling the boot.img right?
23:50 utkanos 16gb has a diff kernel right?
23:50 [mbm] bet it's the same kernel
23:50 utkanos ah I was told it was diff in a sum check
23:51 [mbm] might be a different compile, should be same sources
23:51 CEnnis91 i have a feeling the 5.6.0 update merged the sources to be the same
23:51 CEnnis91 but i cant be certain
23:52 utkanos well even easier then
23:52 CEnnis91 but they were definitely different before that
23:52 CEnnis91 brb
23:52 [mbm] CEnnis91: recovery has the kernel commandline hardcoded, includes a partition list mapping partition numbers to names
23:52 [mbm] should be the same, but dunno yet
23:53 CEnnis91 yea thats what you said before
23:53 CEnnis91 [mbm]> oh, and the kernel commandline for reovery is hardoded near the start of recovery.img .. should work well enough to dump a 16g boot.img but wouldn't push it much further
23:53 [mbm] hoping that the only real differences are the partition table and cdt
23:53 utkanos does anyone have the 16gb model that comes in here?
23:53 utkanos if partition table is diff I'll need to fix up recovery for the 16gb one CEnnis91
23:54 [mbm] utkanos: CEnnis91 tried to trick someone from the forums to join
23:54 utkanos lol
23:54 utkanos yeah that's what he said
23:55 [mbm] utkanos: huh? cw should be using /proc/partitions and the x86 msdos partition table
23:55 [mbm] if the partitions are in the same order then the commandline is identical
23:55 [mbm] no size information there
23:56 utkanos well yeah, but I thought you were inferring the partition numbering would be different
23:56 [mbm] partition sizes show up in the mbr/ebr and cdt
23:56 [mbm] utkanos: possibly, but unlikely
23:56 utkanos gotcha
23:56 utkanos well hpefully its the same
23:57 [mbm] kernel panics of the partition table says something is bigger than flash :)
23:57 CEnnis91 utkanos: [mbm]: he said he might be around sunday
23:58 utkanos hehe
23:59 * [mbm] found out yesterday that /dev/block/ebr isn't the right size for fastboot flash ebr ...
23:59 utkanos wow really?
23:59 ds2 HE HE HE HE
23:59 [mbm] too small, erased almost all my partitions
