Brilliant, that worked! Thank you so much.

 

For those reading this in 2017 and beyond - I've expanded the instructions, added all of the required programs, and uploaded it here: https://goo.gl/b003hu (this links to Dropbox).

Re: Iomega IX4-200d - Boot Loop

2018-01-30, 21:46 PM

Good evening everybody.

Excellent tutorial!

All works well, Marvell launches well but does not stop restarting after having entered the last command "reset".

Marvell restarts and in the last line notes me:

"Loading Ramdisk Image at 12000000 ...

Bad Magic Number "

then restarts each time.

Nas never turn off!

What's "ramdisk image" and "Magic number"?

Have I made a mistake?

Thanks a lot to help me

 

Re,

I've looked what's happen on Marvell when i follow the nine steps:

a. setenv initrd_size 0x2f0000 ok
b. saveenv ok
c. tftpboot 0x2000000 zImage ok
d. tftpboot 0x12000000 initrd ok
e. nand erase 0x2d4000 0x2f000 ok
f. nand erase 0xb0000 0x224000 ok
g. nand write.e 0x12000000 0x2d4000 0x2f0000 ok
h. nand write.e 0x2000000 0x0b0000 0x224000 ok
i. reset ok and problem come

So by step, Marvell can:

b: SAVE

c & d:LOAD

e & f: ERASE

g & h: WRITE

And after step "i:reset (or boot)", Marvell try to read. We can see on the picture i post before:

"Reading data from 0x2fd800-- 5% complete.reading NAND page at offsett 0x304000 failed"

And at the and of page we can see : "

"Loading Ramdisk Image at 12000000 ...

Bad Magic Number "

Then, Marvell restart and restart and repeat same thing.

So Marvell can save, load, erase, write but.....can't read!?! :smileyfrustrated:

 

I'll like to know on the step "reading", where Marvell is reading, to find where's the problem?

It read on USB? TFTPD64.exe? NAS hdd Iomega?Is there mistake in prog "image"? problem whith "TTL to USB" ?

So what?:smileysad:

 

Now, it's impossible to turn off Iomega. After close all on PC, i must disconect power and remove 3V bat for several minutes. If no removed bat iomega power on immediatly when put power supply...

 

So thanks a lot for your help, i think it's not a big problem but i'm stuck...:smileysad:
