Fastboot


#1

Hello forum,

I am currently designing my first system based on Sierra WP8548 chpiset and Legato.
I have two mangOH development kits:

  1. Old kit - Rev 2
  2. New kit - Rev 7 (Green (DV4))

With the first kit (old), after conducting some tests with my new firmware version (Make by my yocto project), I wanted to return to the default firmware.
=> From source.sierrawireless.com/resour … rerelease9, I downloaded the default WP75 Firmware Packages:

  1. Customer configuration: Generic (early sample), SKU: 9101011, Configuration: 001.014_000
  2. Carrier Configuration: SKU 1102734, Configuration 001.002_000
    => Result: Ok, no error (Kernel, filesystem and Legato apps).

Now, if I want to test my firmware, I can not detect my mangHO kit when it is in fastboot mode (sys_reboot bootloader).

dmesg log:
[ 1480.807193] usb 1-4: new high-speed USB device number 6 using xhci_hcd
[ 1480.935767] usb 1-4: New USB device found, idVendor=1199, idProduct=68c0

[ 1480.936339] usb 1-4: GSM modem (1-port) converter now attached to ttyUSB1

Normally, I expected to read the following traces:

[ 1897.452286] usb 3-1.1: New USB device found, idVendor=18d1, idProduct=d00d

[ 1897.452295] usb 3-1.1: Manufacturer: Google
[ 1897.452297] usb 3-1.1: SerialNumber: MDM9615

fastboot devices -l => MDM9615 fastboot usb:3-1.1

Do you know how to get back with “fastboot” ?

Thanks for you help,

I tested this at command on both devices
at!mapuart?

With the same configuration, the result is different.

ATI command on old kit - rev2

Hi,

Regarding the “fastboot mode”, it has been disabled for WP85 modules since Legato 16.01 delivery.

It is listed in the Customer Release Note available on the “Source”:

[quote]Fastboot is disabled due to an inflexible USB configuration limiting the ability to enable Fastboot independently.
Fastboot is to be supported in future releases.
[/quote]

But it should come back in the future delivery.

If you were using fastboot tool for flashing Yocto images then you can still use fwupdate tool to do the same (using *.cwe files generated in the build folder).
