Superboot2440 suddenly does not start WinCE anymore. This have happened to several of our newest boards. The boards are flashed with the SD memory, to boot WinCE, and they work well for a while, until some time when they are booted, and they do not pass the bootlogo.bmp image, and the yellow line. Have anyone experienced this?. It would be very useful to get some response from FriendlyArm of why this are happening. We have used Mini2440 from 2010, but since the time they began dispatching the Mini2440 with Superboot2440, we are having this issue in a regular basis. When this happens we have a big problem with our customers, as a board that does not boot, becomes a dead weight. Thanks.
Superboot2440 does not start WinCE.
Hi, You need to build a new image with the latest BSP or use the latest image for 2440. Old images do not boot properly.
Hi hassan. Where can I download the latest BSP?. (in the FTP, the ISO is from 2012). How can I check the version of my BSP?. Is a lot of work to to trim the BSP as I need it, so if my current BSP is the last one, I would left it untouched. Thanks.
Hi hassan. The one I have is Mini2440-CE6-Suite-1320.zip. I think I should test the newer one. How did you get 1401?. Can you maybe upload it here or to other place?. By the way, by searching the BSP that you refer to, I found your thread of some days ago about config the touchscreen. I left there a couple of tips that can be usefull to you.
Maybe Mindee, as the FriendlyARM representative who visits this forum could help providing a download link for Mini2440-CE6-Suite-1320.zip (I am sure I am not the only who will find this information useful).
Thanks for your reply to my question ferite. I already solved the problem and forgot the write solution on my topic. My solution is same as yours. this link is for the bsp https://www.dropbox.com/s/lj8pci3lwtj1ocb/Mini2440-CE6-Suite-1401.zip this link is for nboot. https://www.dropbox.com/s/xhg5uqpu2hz6mh2/nboot-20140103.zip you must build both of them for stabil running.
Thanks you so much hassan. By the way, I have not built nboot before. You were not given the binary version?. What IDE or compiler do you use for this?. Thanks again.
Hi Ferite, I am also facing same issue. Do you able to solve this "Yellow" Screen issue ? I am trying to Hassan solution , if it will work I will write down here.
Hi Ferrite, Nilesh This time i received it Was P-35 old images compiled in Wince6.0 platform builder does not work shoul i use the new BSP 1401 ?

Hi I was successful in porting Wince6.0 to mini2440 P35 i used the files available in the CD and edited the ini file as below #This line cannot be removed. by FriendlyARM(www.arm9.net) USBMode = No Action = Install OS = CE6 VerifyNandWrite = Yes LowFormat = No Status Type = Beeper| LED # Windows CE 6 part #WindowsCE6-Bootloader = WindowsCE6\nboot_P35.bin WindowsCE6-Bootloader = Superboot2440.bin WindowsCE6-BootLogo = WindowsCE6\bootlogo.bmp WindowsCE6-InstallImage = WindowsCE6\NK_P35.bin WindowsCE6-RinImage = WindowsCE6\NK_P35.bin #UserBin-Bootloader = Superboot2440.bin userBinStartAddress = 30000000 #UserBin-Image = 2440test\2440test_W35.bin kindly write to me if you need help firstname.lastname@example.org please mention mini2440 in the subject of mail
Hi Nishi and Nilesh: I downloaded BSP 1401, and I ran WinDiff on BSP2440_1320 and BSP2440_1401. I only found differences in these files: bak.cpp bak_hw.h bak_io.cpp options.h s3c2440a_lcd.h Becasuse of that, as long as BSP refers, there is not a change that makes the 1401 more stable than 1320. There are only changes regarding backlight and LCD support. By the way if you look at options.h and s3c2440a_lcd.h code, you will find support for your P35 LCD. Now, as for the bootloader, I have not the source code for the previous version of nboot, in order to guess if this new nboot is going to be more stable that previous. However I can tell you that it does support P35 LCD. Any one has the last nboot (nboot-20140103) binary?. (or at least knows how to compile the source code).
Hi Nishi: Could you upload please your nboot_P35.bin and Superboot2440.bin?. Besides nboot_P35.bin your images\wince6 folder has othe nboot versions, like nboot_W35.bin for instance?. If so, could you upload it too?. Thanks in advance and best regards.
Hi Nilesh: Thanks for your reply. I was able to download the attachment. I have one question more. Along with nboot_P35.bin, is there bootloader for other LCD types, like nboot_W35.bin for the previous LCD?. Thnak for your help, and best regards.
Yes... it is available... I am not able to upload more documents here.. so give me your id so i can send you other files
All, Is there any resolution on this issue? we are having the same problem and it is preventing a shipment for us. We are using the instructions for loading NK.bin images via the SDCARD and the FriendlyArm.ini file, but our NK.BIN image is only allowed to run the FIRST time. We are using an older A70 board. After a reboot, it moves the yellow progress bar to the right and hangs there. I have downloaded the latest BSP and tried that image stock and it does the same thing. it appears to be completely related to the superboot2440.bin or the NBOOT_A70.bin because Supervivi can still load the same NK.BIN files and it works (if the USB transfer does not hang) Hopefully someone is monitoring this thread and will answer soon! Best regards, tkr
Update on this subject !!! at least a temporary resolution. We noticed the most recent units are 256MB RAM, whereas all previous units were 128MB RAM. When we use superboot to transfer our Platform Builder built WinCE6 NK.BIN file into the 256MB RAM, the WinCE6 only boots once: we are able to recalibrate, run the unit's software, however, it's game over for any subsequent reboots, which all fail and lockup at the point the yellow bar goes all the way to the right. We cannot get the supervivi to USB transfer the NK.BIN using DNW 0.60C -- Even though the progress bar in DNW sweeps from left to right, we watch the serial port output, and it does not display progress. The unit never boots, so the transfer has actually failed, even though it appears on DNW it may have worked. The only way we have found to get a working unit is to reflash supervivi into the ROM via JTAG using the H-Flasher software. We then boot the unit using that supervivi in ROM, and using the supervivi serial console with DNW v.0.50A, we restore a previously backed up 128MB image through USB. Using supervivi NK.BIN transfer and DNW v0.60A fails on USB, while supervivi restore and DNW USB 0.50A works on USB. Strange. Perhaps we need a new BSP for these 256MB units? pla/tkr
Hi all, I am new to friendly arm(Mini2440).
