MK802III Linux kernel in recovery partition install Picuntu

Postby Hans » Tue Aug 06, 2013 1:06 am

I have a MK802III.4GB
I Flashed it twice As per Andy's downloads viewtopic.php?f=9&t=4881

1. Flash entire ROM to the MK802III or MK802IIIS using the tool below:
http://www.rikomagic.co.uk/downloads/RO ... 802III.zip (Finless 1.4 ROM)

The flash tool says at the bottom "Found RKAndroid Loader Rock Usb".
1) I Pressed the button in the flash tool "Erase NAND (IDB)". and it did finish.
2) I Pressed the "Flash ROM" button. It took about 2 minutes to do it's thing. No errors!
3) After flash and no errors, the mk802III did restart with a bunch of script on the TV monitor.
4) Script stopped with the following notice

[ 4.869911] camera 33-1-gc2035_front_Z: Probe gc2035_front_Z failed

Message : Busybox v1.20.2 (Debian 1:1.20.0-7)built-in shell (ash)
Enter help for a list of build-in commands

/bin/sh: can’t access tty: job control turned off
(initramfs)

At this point it was bricked
I reflashed the Rikomagic stock rom with Android 4.2.2 Jelly bean.
followed by the upgrade from neomode ( http://www.freaktab.com/showthread.php? ... ERSION-1-0)
So it is working again.
I tried to start Picuntu from "the Picuntu flashed SD card", but the NEOMODE custom rom probably has no linux kernel in the partition of the MK802III
I love to get Picuntu going
Any body can shed some light on my problem.

Problem solved :

3) After flash and no errors, the mk802III did restart with a bunch of script on the TV monitor.
4) Script stopped with the following notice ( see above ect ect ect )

The reason Script stopped , I failed to insert the SD card with Picuntu on it prior to flashing the MK802III.
