That is strange, I managed to use it with 8G Kingston and 4G Sandisk Cruzer Blade 4G.
What host OS are you using? and how did you format the USB DOK?

I actually didn't try because the docs consitently tells me to use a stick less than 2 GB :-)

My brother has my USB sticks (4 GB) so I couldn't try; instead I went to the nearby shops to see if they had a smaller stick - which they hadn't.

But if you succeded, I should just wait til I get my stick back and try with that.

Thanks for the report.

marlar,
How about creating a 2GB partition at the beginning of your oversized USB stick for this purpose?

Good idea. When I get my sticks back I will try that.

May I respectfully suggest that you update the docs if it is not necessary to use small USB sticks <2 GB ? I think many users could benefit from that information since those small USB sticks are not easily obtainable.

Hi everyone. New Plug Computer adopter here. I hit the 8% Starting on-board installer issue too. I flashed up to the latest U-Boot, per Martin's instructions. I actually didn't go back to version 3.4.16 per this thread that reportedly would let the ESIA requester proceed, and took on faith it would work... and it did! I quit ESIA and went back to PuTTY, and there was the Debian login!

I am also setting up a new website where I document my trials and tribulations.

Hi there,
I tried  to use ESIA installer on xp machine to update my SheevaPlug and got some issues:
1.  Installation of Debian_Lenny to NAND flash stopped at stage "Loading installer image" with error "On-board installer exited".
2.  Uboot re-flashing failed with error: "OpenOCD failed to reflash your device. Process crashed".

Any comments on that. Thanks in advance.

Some technical details:
a. downloaded   ESIA ver 2.0.5 and Debian_Lenny  from http://sourceforge.net/projects/esia/files/
b. followed instructions from  document Esia_walkthrough.doc
c. have 2GB FAT32 USB stick for DOK
d. plug has uboot ver 3.4.16
e. tried to install Ubuntu904, same result as in #1

Thanks.

Hello, having my own issues with this installer...

ESIA log:

Runtime error, file "command.c", line 469:

any ideas there? I am able to serial to my plug (original Sheeva, pre-ordered before launch day, no modifications done to it since then, just decided to update it now).  using win xp host, downloaded the new uboot from the forums here, put it in the correct place in the esia folder, using putty I rebooted the plug, halted the countdown, then disconnected.  started up esia, it found it immediately, I changed the MAC to lower case on the set that had two letters when starting the flash.

let me know what else you ned to assist, thanks

Hey guys,

if you have the 8% issue just put a newer Kernel on your USB stick or in your ESIA folder(C:\Programme\ESIA)

So download the Kernel here http://sheeva.with-linux.com/sheeva/ Take for example http://sheeva.with-linux.com/sheeva/2.6.34.6/sheeva-2.6.34.6-uImage rename it to "instImg" when putting the kernel to your USB stick or name it uImage when putting it in the ESIA dir.

Now it should work again Tongue

Hey Rooster,
                first want to say thanks for this tool!  I'm trying to install it on my mac osx, but I'm having trouble getting the FTDIUSBSerialDriver to recognize the sheevaplug.  I'm using coolterm terminal program.  I followed your instructions and installed the FTDIUSBSerialDriver_10_4_10_5_10_6.mpkg installer package.  It installs successfully.  Then I added the sheevaplug profiles to the Info.plist file as instructed.  I then ran "sudo kextload FTDIUSBSerialDriver.kext" to load the module.  However when I try "sudo dmesg" I don't see the driver.  Also I tried:  "cd /dev" and then "ls -l" and I also don't see the sheevaplug listed.  I did try: "sudo touch /Extensions"  as well.  When I open coolterm and try to rescan the serial port, the sheevaplug won't show up.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Okay.  So I'm happy to say, I finally got it to work.  It must have been how the profiles were added to the Info.plist file.  I added them just as you instructed, but I think that some thing about how I added the sheevaplug profiles was wrong.  Also, I tried following this post:  http://openplug.org/plugforum/index.php?topic=34.0
but the "patch" command didn't work.  I tried copying the text from the post and place it into a text file, then ran the patch command.  Finally, I used the pre-created Info.plist from this website: http://www.plugpbx.org/?page_id=119, and it seemed to work.  To save others the anguish, I'm uploading that file so anyone can just download it and replace the one that's there.   Just make sure to keep the permissions and ownership the same as the originally installed one.

Thanks.

Is this application deadware? What alternative is there to upgrade a SheevaPlug to Debian?
