I tried to below 4 steps but no use.. Step 1. In PC, open the file "images/FriendlyARM.ini" in TF-card and edit some item as follow: #This line cannot be removed. by FriendlyARM(www.arm9.net) CheckOneButton=No Action = Install OS = CE6 LCD-Mode = No LCD-Type = S70 LowFormat = Yes VerifyNandWrite = No CheckCRC32=No StatusType = Beeper | LED ################### Windows CE6.0 #################### WindowsCE6-Bootloader = Superboot210.bin WindowsCE6-BootLogo = WindowsCE6\bootlogo.bmp WindowsCE6-InstallImage = WindowsCE6\NK.bin WindowsCE6-RunImage = WindowsCE6\NK.bin Step 2. Set the board as SD card boot mode(set S2 for SDBOOT), and insert the SD card to the board. Step 3. Power on the board, the buzzer will ring one times. Step 4. Check the board LED and Buzzer, Buzzer will ring a bit of times, then it means update the system success. I succeeded up to step 3 . After step 3 I waited 15 min but buzzer not ringed. After 15 min I set S2 to Nand Flash mode and power on the board same android is booted ( windowsCE 6.0 not loaded) but android touch also not working. I tried Action = Run also but same no changes… SDk board: Tiny210V2 LCD Model : S700 We connected HDMI monitor also. Please give me your valuable suggestions and resolve my issue.
Windows CE 6.0 loading problem in Tiny210v2
not sure what to suggest, I don't have a tiny210v2, however, superboot should display progress information on the LCD, it should also output information to con1 (serial port).
Satish, I think your problem comes from the way you prepare your SDCard. In fact, files on your SDCard must be placed in a directory called "Images". You must create this directory on root: /images/->and place here all your files. You can connect the serial cable on the debug UART and launch any hyperterminal like software, then, you'll see informations regarding the installation progress, and, if any problem occurs, then, you'll be inform. I'm sure your problem comes from the location of your files on the SDCard...so, just try what I told you... Good Luck ! Leo
Thanks leo you are told to me is correct... i placed files in Image folder..working fine. ?But i have another problem. When i build a windows ce 6.0 image its created successfully without errors. and installed in tiny210v2 also good but after booting completed its shows bootlogo only not windows ce desktop. friendly arm provided nk.bin was working correctly.. i created one is problem.. Please help me what was i wrong..
I have the same problem too. For what I know the problems seems due to the image not loaded into RAM. It's got flashed but not loaded when you switch S2 to NAND
Hi Satish babu, I'm happy to see that you've solved your first problem... but now, you seem to have reached the second step problem : Loading an image that you've built with Platform Builder. Unfortunately, I have the same problem... Using the provided nk.bin on the DVD, it works fine, but if I try to build mine, I see the boot logo on startup, and when the progressbar is full, nothing happens, I can't access to the Window desktop... I think there is something wrong with the used drivers. I'm not a specialist, but it appears that Mini210 Catalog in Platform Builder is absolutely not complete... And it's a little bit hard to understand how to add new drivers to the Catalog, and how to use them in the build (need to have a Sysgen variable associated, etc...) Any help would be appreciated. Regards, Leo
Hi Friends... My side also same issue...I am working this issue form last 10 days but no Luck. Provided 'NK.bin' on the DVD, it works fine, but if I try to build mine, I see the boot logo on start up, and when the progress bar is full, nothing happens.. Friendlyarm Please resolve this issue ASAP. We are all stuck at this issue. Thanks & Regards Rikky.
To Satish and all other mates: I built a DEBUG image and ran (enabling COM1 for Debug too) so I could see what happens behind the scenes. I found out that the image get loaded and NK.BIN starts expanding on NAND (I have the mini210s with 4G flash) but then stops complaining it doesn't mount a bootable fylesystem. So I got back to the platform.reg and cut off all the stuff regarding Autoload. THen Tried again and the process of expanding NK.BIN go a little bit further. It seems that the NK.BIN is able to create and format partitions butbthen stops again getting an exceptiion. Could it be something in the HIVE registry handling? Hope that someone can help us because the board is very attractive but at the moment is completely useless, At least for us (sigh!!!)
kuhdav, Thanks a lot for your feedback on your last investigations. As you say, this board is very attractive... too bad that it's not as easy as "Compile with provided BSP and play". Actually, we are not able to make it work. I think FriendlyARM should post an information in this forum regarding CE compilation, or release another BSP pack. Actually, we cannot say that the board run under WinCE6.0, we are totally blocked, and we cannot begin to develop our embedded application to run on it. We keep in touch if anyone as good news regarding a successfull NK.bin generated image. Regards, Leo
Hi Kudav, Satich, and others, It works !!! For me, and after a lot of investigations (and thanks to FriendlyARM support), I tried something very simple... My actual PC is under Win7 (64bits), and I have the famous problem while booting under WinCE6.0, after a successful compilation under platform builder, with no errors. So, I took another PC, under Win7 (32 bits), and I have reinstalled all the developement environment, following the Tiny210 Development manual, line by line (Fisrt Visual Studio 2005, then, VS2005 service pack 1, then VS2005 update for Vista... etc.) Then, I have installed WinCE6.0 suite, opened the Win210-en project, and, without touching to any parameter, Advanced Build -> Sysgen. After 15 minutes, nk.bin was generated without error, for a size of about 33Mo. I have uploaded it on the flash using SD card and superboot, and.......MAGIC...... it WORKS ! Help this will help you, Keep in touch, Leo
Thank you Leo Thought I was not much confident to succeed I downloaded the last rolling updated for WINCE 6.0 R3 released by Microsoft (dated: 10-31-2012) and according with Leo, I got a working NK.BIN P.S. Now I'm struggling again because since when I included the "Command Shell" from the catalog I've got another problem: wince takes lot of time to get loaded and then a console window pops up, showing some errors regarding MFC. Has somebody already encounter the same problem? Thanks everybody.
Thanks for your info Leo and Kuhdav, Today I downloaded latest Rolling update ("WinCEPB60-121231-Product-Update-Rollup-Armv4I") but no use..same problem i stuck at booting time.
How to run a program in kiosk mode in windows ce 6.0 in windows ce 5.0 i add below code in project.reg [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\init] "Launch50"="\\ResidentFlsh\\test.exe" "Depend50"=hex:14,00,1E,00 Now tell me the procedure for how to run my app in boot time with out open desktop in wince6.0
It should be right. Anyway there're at least a couple of alternative: 1) put you program in in the folder: /windows/stup 2) FriendlyArm released an app called Autostart ( if I'm not wrong; I didn't used it) that allow to specify the program to run at startup. Bye N.B. put your program in a resident folder (i.e. in the SD card for example)
I got below error...when i build a project on windows ce 6.0 C:\WINCE600\OSDesigns\Mini210-en\Mini210-en\Wince600\Mini210_ARMV4I\cesysgen\oak \lib\ARMV4I\retail\usbdisk6.exp usbdisk6_lib.lib(cd.obj) : fatal error LNK1000: unknown error; consult documentation for technical support options NMAKE : fatal error U1077: 'link' : return code '0x3e8' Stop.
