The problem with cr3 seems to be a conflicting UI API.

I didn't have time to really look into it, but it seems to me that in
cr3/cr3_onyx/lcl_ui/number_dialog.h
there's a definition for
ui::NumberDialog::NumberDialog(QWidget *parent, QString title)
used in
cr3/cr3_onyx/lcl_ui/line_edit.cpp
( NumberDialog dialog(0, name); )
conflicting with the definition of
ui::NumberDialog::NumberDialog(QWidget *parent);
in
code/include/onyx/ui/number_dialog.h
(which seems more recent)

I therefore assume that Onyx likely is _not_ providing the current firmware versions of their source .
These seem to be incompatible versions.

there's been an update of git repositories... can someone check on what they've added? (I'm writing my dissertation, and time gets scarcer every day for now )

The M92 is quite responsitive, if you think about how fast the scribbling reacts. It is sluggish, for example when you open a menu, because of a few bad (IMHO) design choices... it is not as simple as "remove some dead weight", it takes a rewrite of quite some UI code. It can eventually be done, but I'm not holding my breath right now

The serial interface gives you access to the u-boot bootloader. I lose the ability to input anything after the kernel boots, so I can't login to the terminal; that might just be a problem with my device though.

Now, to find that elusive JTAG...

This really good news: we can check out new kernels or booting from the SD card if the bootloader allows this (and recover bricked device when JTAG comes out ) . I'll give it a try.

The serial line becoming unresponsive after boot sounds to me likely because of a different speed setting: it should be 115200 for the login prompt.

Sorry, I should have been more clear: I still see messages on the serial line, but I just can't input anything.

Edit: Adding no_console_suspend to the bootargs solves the problem

Does anyone know the root password? Single user mode works, so I just replaced it for the time being.

This is great news!
W.r.t. the password: afaik it's not known... but some scripts to edit passwd via the regular UI exist (read: to remove the password ) and can be found via the software wiki page.

Please document your findings on the Wiki - we've got some pages for small infos or developer documentation

Cheers!

Yeah, the power management is a bit aggressive, and the device suspends to ram after a short timeout, as you can see from dmesg, but I didn't analyze this any further. Regarding the password, a quick run of john didn't work so I gave up: by judging from update passwords, it's probably a bunch of random characters.

Are you talking about the suspend mode (suspend picture displayed after the configured timeout), or about some transparent suspend-to-ram which wakes on, e.g., page flips?

The thing goes on suspend to ram after a very short timeout (I guess 1 second), transparently to the user — you can see that from dmesg. I think the main difference is that when it goes to standby, the keys and the pen also get disabled, so the power consumption is even lower.
Ciao!
