They have not even updated the website saying the product is being shipped also!

Actually I see some downloads here: http://www.plugcomputer.org/downloads/d2plug/

Now I want to be able to see the downloads for this device!

Mine got shipped today! Its about time!

I preordered it in the beginning of June, and very disappointed that it has been delayed until end of July.

Anyway, anyone know if it can run vanilla debian, or what kind of wireless chipset is inside?

At this time, openocd does not have support for the dreamplug's SPI/NOR so it cannot be done. however you can use openocd to halt the dreamplug, transfer your uboot into memory, resume and flash with existing command.

Warning, do not flash just any u-boot code you got. your u-boot code need to be able to boot from SPI so use "mkimage -l -u-boot-filename" to check it is bootable from SPI.

Good luck Smiley

Really? How would I start to do this? Any examples? This sounds like a way to recover if needed.

Is openocd going to have support for this spi/nor soon you think, is it in progress?

Does openocd have any access to the internal NAND, or just the sdcard (sorry, not really sure what SPI is)
9  Hardware and U-Boot firmware / Hardware / Flash Uboot on Bricked Dreamplug? on: April 17, 2011, 12:45:34 PM
Ok, I have not bricked my dreamplug yet, but I want to be able to reflash uboot before I start messing around with it (I am notorious for bricking things, and I LOVE writing zeros to the nand). Has anyone got Openocd working? I am looking at the runme.sh script from the guruplug, which is what I used for the guruplug, and it seems it requires some hardware specific config files. I notice http://code.google.com/p/dreamplug/downloads/detail?name=dream_burn_spi.tar.bz2, but this seems to be some dump of someones home directory or something.

I just received a new Dreamplug today and it doesn't match the DreamPlug user guide.

Well, there you have it.

If someone wants me to print out anything more, I'd be happy to.

One other observation and that is that this system feels really doggy.  Like the 396 BogoMips is a realistic number.  My GplugD shows 796 BogoMips and feels slower than my GuruPlug that shows 1196 BogoMips.  If anyone has any ideas about what it all means I'd love to hear about it.

I'd also like to get this over on Debian so if anyone has any experience doing that perhaps you could point me in the right direction.  Every other Plug I have came with Debian.

Ubuntu 9.04 is not what I want to be running.


Same exact issue for me, I have ubuntu, and same MIPS.  Did they have you file an RMA, or did they just send you a new one, because they are making me file an RMA (but are paying for a shipping label).

They started shipping the dream plugs, or are you just one of those special people that get it before the rest of us? Unfortunately, I am not aware of a way getting serial/jtag functionality without the jtag box.

I sent an email out about the guruplugs, they are now shipping, mine will be shipped in a couple of days! Anybody get theirs yet?
