1  General Category / Application ideas and development Q/A / Anybody running NCID (network caller id) on a dockstar on: April 15, 2012, 07:27:29 AM
Hi Folks,
has anybody been successfull on deploying a NCID client/daemon for registering phone calls from a phone box (e.g. EasyBox/FritzBox)? In combination with Prowl it would be possible to get iPhone push notifications if someone calls you at home...

Found a solution: I had format all /dev/mtX and reinstall uboot and rescure. Now it boots correct.

Test and Erase Flash
apt install mtd-utils and mtd-tools.
nandtest -p 10 /dev/mtd0
nandtest -p 10 /dev/mtd1
nandtest -p 10 /dev/mtd2
nandtest -p 10 /dev/mtd4

flash_erase /dev/mtd0
flash_erase /dev/mtd1
flash_erase /dev/mtd2
flash_erase /dev/mtd3

Install uBoot
wget http://jeff.doozan.com/debian/uboot/install_uboot_mtd0.sh
chmod +x install_uboot_mtd0.sh
./install_uboot_mtd0.sh   --no-uboot-check

Install rescue
wget http://jeff.doozan.com/debian/rescue/install_rescue.sh
chmod +x install_rescue.sh

Re-Enable NetConsole
fw_setenv serverip
fw_setenv ipaddr
fw_setenv if_netconsole 'ping $serverip'
fw_setenv start_netconsole 'setenv ncip $serverip; setenv bootdelay 10; setenv stdin nc; setenv stdout nc; setenv stderr nc; version;'
fw_setenv preboot 'run if_netconsole start_netconsole'
fw_setenv preboot 'run if_netconsole start_netconsole'

Configure my hardware MAC address like described here: http://forum.doozan.com/read.php?2,2429,3253

Hello everybody,
I've got a problem with my DockStar. I've used Jeff Doozans tutorial to unlock my box,  everything worked fine for weeks. Then I've initiated a reboot and it did not boot up, led was flashing green. Luckily I've got access via netconsole, so I could read the following error log:

UBI: fixable bit-flip detected at PEB 1

The final error line (UBI: fixable bit-flip detected at PEB 1) did not help me to find a solution. With a bit of try'n'error I've started the marvell prompt via netconsole and ran the commands from bootcmd manually. The mentioned error is a result of "run ubifs_bootcmd". Running "usb start; run usb_bootcmd" started the OS from my usb drive.
Here an extract of the environment:

I've modified my bootcmd and switched positions of "run ubifs_bootcmd" and "run usb_bootcmd". Now my dockstar boots successfully from my thumbdrive and everything seems to work. But a bad feeling stays as I don't know if the workaround is ok or if I've got to reflash something (somehow).

Has anybody encountered something like this and could shed light some on the matter?
