04:17 lugreenb anyone at keyboard here?
04:18 lugreenb having a problem where once i install the rooted motoactv software, i'm unable to recognize the device in windows anymore, and can't add any files
04:18 lugreenb wondering if anyone knows how to stop that from happening, thanks

19:13 gabera does any one know if the heart rate headphone works on endomondo on rooted motoactv?
19:19 stoudamire joined #motoactv
19:25 dproldan joined #motoactv
19:26 gabera does any one know if the heart rate headphone works on endomondo on rooted motoactv?
19:31 dproldan gabera: no "sporty" people here I'm afraid,  I don't think anyone here has the heart rate headphone
19:31 dproldan the Bluetooth on the MotoACTV is modified by motorola,  so the only way to know for sure is trying it
19:32 stoudamire What do you actually mean with heart rate headphone? The SF700 headphones have not been published yet.
19:35 dproldan heh,  probably they'll never be released
19:36 dproldan stoudamire: do you know how to use ADB and Fastboot?  for extracting your images
19:37 stoudamire I know how to use it with my phone. :-)
19:37 dproldan ok,  it's the same  :-)
19:38 dproldan I can guide you if you want to do it now
19:38 stoudamire Sure,
19:38 stoudamire Just let me grab my MotoACTV.
19:39 dproldan ok,  let me explain the process first,  then we go step by step
19:39 stoudamire I got it. You can start. :-)
19:40 dproldan basically,  we flash a very light recovery image and flash a special partition that makes the MotoACTV boot into recovery
19:40 stoudamire Do I have to deactive Motocast and the Motorola Device manager?
19:40 dproldan no,  not needed
19:40 stoudamire okay
19:40 dproldan the MotoACTV will be exactly the same after this procedure
19:40 dproldan not rooted or anything
19:41 stoudamire I am not afraid. :-)
19:41 dproldan download these files:
19:41 dproldan http://dl.opticaldelusion.org/misc.img
19:41 dproldan http://dl.opticaldelusion.org/recovery.img
19:42 stoudamire One moment. It´s downloading.
19:42 dproldan are you using windows?
19:42 stoudamire Yes, Win7.
19:42 stoudamire files are downloaded
19:43 dproldan ok,  open a command line and navigate to the fodler where you donwloaded those files
19:43 dproldan folder
19:43 stoudamire okay, done
19:43 dproldan turn off the MotoACTV
19:44 stoudamire done
19:44 dproldan push the "volume down" button and hold *
19:44 dproldan sorry
19:44 dproldan vol down + power
19:44 dproldan hold them until the screen comes up
19:45 stoudamire same procedure like with the htc devices
19:45 dproldan ok,  you should see "bootloader fastboot mode"
19:45 dproldan "battery OK"
19:45 dproldan "OK to program"
19:46 dproldan etc
19:46 stoudamire yes
19:46 dproldan plug the USB cable
19:46 stoudamire already done :-)
19:46 dproldan :-)
19:47 dproldan issue these commands:
19:47 dproldan fastboot flash misc misc.img
19:47 dproldan fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
19:47 dproldan fastboot reboot
19:48 stoudamire okay, it is booting
19:48 stoudamire i am in the recovery
19:48 dproldan ok,  type "adb devices",  just to check
19:48 stoudamire found it
19:49 dproldan lets extract them:
19:49 dproldan adb shell dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk1p12 of=/sdcard/boot.img bs=1024
19:49 stoudamire done
19:49 dproldan adb shell dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk1p20 of=/sdcard/preinstall.img bs=1024
19:50 stoudamire done
19:50 dproldan adb shell dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk1p18 of=/sdcard/system.img bs=1024
19:50 stoudamire these commands are definitely over my adb knowledge :-)
19:51 gabera sorry! i was talking about that one that come with it
19:51 gabera that with red wire
19:51 stoudamire last one takes a bit longer
19:51 dproldan dd is "duplicate disk" if I'm i'm not mistaken,  if=input file of=output file
19:52 stoudamire okay, good to know
19:52 stoudamire the last one is still not finished, but I guess that´s normal as it copies the system image
19:53 dproldan It can take a couple minutes
19:53 dproldan but preinstall should also take that
19:53 dproldan we'll check them later
19:56 dproldan uhm,  only took 26 seconds for me
19:56 stoudamire interesting :-)
19:57 dproldan still didn't finish?
19:57 stoudamire nope
19:58 dproldan can you open another command line?
19:58 dproldan and enter:
19:58 dproldan adb shell
19:58 dproldan or better:
19:58 dproldan type this:
19:58 dproldan adb shell ls -l /sdcard/
20:00 dproldan see if system.img is there
20:00 stoudamire stuck on every terminal windows :-(
20:01 dproldan uhm pity,  just navigate from the MotoACTV device and reboot the device
20:02 stoudamire the motoactv is not responsive
20:03 dproldan try different buttons to enter the menu
20:03 dproldan power, start or music
20:03 stoudamire tried all five
20:03 stoudamire nothing is working
20:03 dproldan ok,  hold start and power until it turns off
20:04 stoudamire done
20:05 stoudamire motoactv is off
20:05 dproldan turn it on
20:05 dproldan let's check the size of the imgs
20:05 stoudamire how?
20:06 dproldan turn it on,  connect it to windows,
20:06 gabera i afraid i'm been stupid, but is the headphone with red cords that comes with motoactv a heart rate monitor, isn't?
20:06 dproldan the images are in the MotoACTV drive
20:06 stoudamire @gabera: You are mistaken.
20:06 dproldan gabera: they're not heart rate monitors
20:07 gabera thanks guys
20:08 stoudamire where do i have to look exactly?
20:08 dproldan when you connect the MotoACTV to the computer,  the USB drive opens, right
20:09 stoudamire Yes
20:09 dproldan the files are boot.img,  preinstall.aim
20:09 dproldan preinstall.img
20:09 dproldan system.img
20:09 dproldan oh,  shit
20:09 stoudamire there aren´t any files in the root
20:09 dproldan I forgot to tell you to mount /SDCARD
20:09 dproldan <-- stoopid
20:10 stoudamire :-)
20:10 dproldan sorry  :-)
20:10 dproldan let you motoACTV recharge a bit
20:10 stoudamire As long as my motoactv is working, it is not a problem.
20:10 stoudamire 80%
20:11 stoudamire should be enough, shouldn´t it?
20:11 dproldan yes
20:11 dproldan let's try again
20:12 dproldan turn it off
20:12 stoudamire Are you sure you remember all command lines? :-)
20:12 stoudamire Just kidding. :-)
20:12 dproldan :-)  turn it on with vol down + power
20:12 dproldan plug to computer
20:12 dproldan fastboot flash misc misc.img
20:12 dproldan fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
20:12 dproldan fastboot reboot
20:14 stoudamire done, it is rebooting
20:14 stoudamire it is in recovery
20:14 dproldan adb shell mount /sdcard
20:15 stoudamire the new one :-)
20:15 dproldan adb shell ls /sdcard/    …… are your files there?
20:15 stoudamire got an error message
20:15 dproldan oh?
20:16 stoudamire mount: cannot read /etc/fstab: no such file or directory
20:16 dproldan uhm,  one second
20:17 dproldan try this:
20:17 dproldan adb shell mount /dev/block/userdata /sdcard
20:17 dproldan no, hell
20:17 dproldan stop that
20:18 stoudamire haven´t done anything yet
20:19 dproldan adb shell  mount /dev/block/emstorage /sdcard
20:19 dproldan this one is ok  :
20:19 stoudamire Sure now?
20:19 dproldan :-)
20:19 stoudamire done
20:19 dproldan adb shell ls /sdcard/    …….… are your files there?
20:20 stoudamire some are, but some not
20:21 stoudamire maybe, all are there but I cannot see the end of the lines
20:22 stoudamire :-)
20:22 stoudamire sorry, if that is a noob answer :-)
20:22 dproldan nope,  that's ok.   with the previous commands,  we wrote to RAM
20:22 dproldan ok,  now we have the USB drive mounted
20:23 dproldan let's go with the extraction
20:23 stoudamire okay
20:23 dproldan adb shell dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk1p12 of=/sdcard/boot.img bs=1024
20:23 stoudamire done
20:23 dproldan adb shell dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk1p20 of=/sdcard/preinstall.img bs=1024
20:24 stoudamire done
20:24 dproldan adb shell dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk1p18 of=/sdcard/system.img bs=1024
20:25 stoudamire done
20:25 dproldan adb shell ls /sdcard/*.img           just to check if they're there
20:25 stoudamire they are there
20:25 stoudamire Reboot?
20:26 dproldan yep
20:26 dproldan adb reboot
20:26 stoudamire I did oldschool with device itself :-)
20:27 stoudamire all images are there
20:27 stoudamire Where shall I upload them?
20:27 dproldan perfect!
20:28 dproldan one second
20:28 stoudamire about 183mb together
20:28 stoudamire the upload can take a while
20:28 stoudamire I only have a 2mb line here
20:29 dproldan do you have a Dropbox or googleDrive Account?
20:30 stoudamire both
20:30 stoudamire it´s 340 mb altogehter
20:30 stoudamire my mistake

20:31 stoudamire I just put it to my dropbox
20:32 dproldan ok
20:33 stoudamire thanks for your support
20:33 dproldan thanks to you.  first one with a EU motoactv willing to do this!
20:33 dproldan You're in Germany?
20:34 stoudamire Yes.
20:34 stoudamire Got mine from the UK.
20:34 stoudamire Unfortunately, it is still not sold here.
20:34 dproldan one second
20:34 dproldan that's right
20:35 dproldan only in a few eu countries is expansys selling it
20:35 dproldan http://www.expansys.de/s.aspx?search=motoactv
20:35 stoudamire yeah, you can get it from amazon.de
20:35 dproldan only that for you Deustche
20:35 stoudamire but the price is unbelievable
20:36 dproldan http://www.expansys.es/s.aspx?search=motoactv
20:36 stoudamire got mine for 150 EUR and expansys sells them for 270 EUR
20:36 dproldan 150 in the UK?
20:37 dproldan that's cheap
20:37 dproldan I paid 160 Eur for a US one
20:37 stoudamire Yeah, over ebay. One stupid guy used it once and sold it over ebay. Just a couple of days old and use once.
20:37 dproldan ah
20:37 dproldan good for you!
20:37 dproldan :-)
20:38 stoudamire Do you guys actually use the motoactv for working out?
20:38 stoudamire Does not look like it. :-)
20:38 dproldan nope,  heh.   I turn the walking tracking app when I'm with my daughter in nature parks and such
20:38 dproldan that's the only time
20:39 stoudamire But you know that is a fitness device?!? ;-)
20:40 dproldan I'm 64 Kg,  1.72 meters,   I don't need exercising,  lol
20:42 stoudamire Can´t be true. In Europe, there is the prejudice, that all Americans eat a lot of fast food and are really fat. :-)
20:43 dproldan <---  I'm from Spain  :-)
20:43 stoudamire :-) okay
20:43 dproldan mediterranean diet, etc
20:43 stoudamire Where in Spain are you from?
20:44 dproldan Malaga
20:44 stoudamire Funny. I was there for a couple of monts
20:44 stoudamire Unfortunately, my Spanish still sucks
20:45 gabera left #motoactv
20:45 dproldan heh,   just as my german probably,  I go to Germany a few times every year,  for work
20:46 stoudamire Okay, thanks again for your help.
20:46 stoudamire I gotta leave. Friday Night, Club Night. :-)
20:47 stoudamire I will give you guys the link to the dropbox files as soon as they are uploaded.
20:47 stoudamire Currently, it says 5 hours remaining. :-)
20:48 stoudamire See ya.

23:17 dproldan CEnnis91:
23:18 dproldan CEnnis91|Mobile: I guided stoudamire for getting the images,  he's uploading now
23:18 CEnnis91|Mobile dproldan: preinstall as well
23:18 CEnnis91|Mobile ?
23:18 dproldan yep
23:18 dproldan boot, system, preinstall
23:18 CEnnis91|Mobile Okay thank you
23:19 CEnnis91|Mobile Just to be sure what did you do
23:19 CEnnis91|Mobile Go through mbm's recovery for adb and pulled from there?
23:19 dproldan flashed [mbm] recovery and misc images,  to gain adb
23:19 dproldan dd'd to sdcard
23:20 CEnnis91|Mobile Wonderful thank you, saved a bunch of work playing cat and mouse
23:20 dproldan yep
23:21 CEnnis91|Mobile Where did you do this? Forum pm?
23:21 [mbm] seems to be in this channel earlier
23:21 dproldan no,  here,  a couple of hours ago
23:22 CEnnis91|Mobile Ah cool okay
23:22 CEnnis91|Mobile Been out of town for july 4th just got back
23:22 CEnnis91|Mobile And just to be sure he did this all with 1.7.10?
23:23 CEnnis91|Mobile Or did E8 not get that yet
23:24 dproldan that's what he said in the forum
23:24 dproldan 1.7.10 E8
23:25 CEnnis91|Mobile Okay once i get the images i should be able to get it out in a few hours
23:26 CEnnis91|Mobile I want to compress them first
23:26 CEnnis91|Mobile Bbl
23:28 [mbm] probably isn't much of a difference
23:30 dproldan yep
23:31 dproldan i've seen some code that composes the version number and adds E or N
23:32 dproldan maybe it's just about the wifi channel,  fm radio band,  metric values, etc
23:34 dproldan time to sleep
23:45 CEnnis91|Mobile Yea i dont really expect any differences
23:45 CEnnis91|Mobile I just wanted the stock images regardless
