Code:
Waiting for root device /dev/mmcblk0p2...
So it's not only the partition, there's something more...but I can't find what!

I made it a few days.

http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...&postcount=129

I resume because perhaps that wasn't clear...

for the moment I use this workaround:

Install SManager from
https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...anager%26hl=en
or
http://smanager.wikidot.com/main:start

It permit to launch a shell script after reboot

You have just to create a script with

Code:
ioctl -d /dev/ntx_io 127 0
and to set it as startup.

--- SManager instructions:
Menu, create a new script, give it a name, choose an editor,
<type your script>
then back, save the script
then click on it in the browser (it is at the root), select boot and favorite, record, exit

Menu, script should list it.
Reboot.
----

or simply run the line in a adb shell or in a term apk at each reboot.
(because Smanager is not very user friendly )

----
I'm trying to install it in init.rc ( thanks to MarekGibek who has made the init.rc persistant) but that doesnt run for the moment...

dd366, I have seen your post but you wrote that "It works well (despite tiny char interface) but is not ideal in term of memory usage and power in sleep mode."
So I'll better wait till you will integrate script to init.rc

Dancol, can you please show me how your u-boot config string from your image looks like? I mean this part:

Code:
bootdelay=0 baudrate=115200 loadaddr=0x70800000 netdev=eth0 ethprime=FEC0 uboot=u-boot.bin kernel=uImage nfsroot=/opt/eldk/arm bootargs_base=setenv bootargs console=ttymxc0,115200 bootargs_nfs=setenv bootargs ${bootargs} root=/dev/nfs ip=dhcp nfsroot=${serverip}:${nfsroot},v3,tcp bootcmd_net=run bootargs_base bootargs_nfs; tftpboot ${loadaddr} ${kernel}; bootm bootargs_mmc=setenv bootargs ${bootargs} root=/dev/mmcblk0p2 rootfstype=ext4 rootwait rw noinitrd init=/init video=mxc_elcdif_fb:off                   bootcmd_mmc=run bootargs_base bootargs_mmc; mmc read 0 0x70800000 0x800 0x2000; bootm   bootcmd=run bootcmd_mmc                                  bootargs=console=ttymxc0 init=/init androidboot.console=ttymxc0 keypad video=mxc_elcdif_fb:off calibration
I think there are a few important things you must have to run Android. Especially this:

"/mmcblk0p2 rootfstype=ext4 rootwait rw noinitrd init=/init video=mxc_elcdif_fbff"

I know it is the hardest part. On the other hand it is not that long string - it's only scarry If you update it correctly you will succeed. I can try to update it for you if you sent me this fragment from your image.

If you have different addresses on Kobo Mini (0x70800000?) - you should leave your values untouched.

Also this part is very important:

0x70800000 0x800 0x2000

The last value is the max size of the kernel. Please note that Android kernel is longer and it is 0x2000 instead of smaller value whatever it was before.

Yes. Boot images are placed before first partition. Just like partition table, u-boot block, kernel, ramdisk in previous version, waveform data, hardware configuration, passwords to your bank account and more crazy stuff

It's funny that poweroff image is empty (white). Because of that I thought there is no such thing as poweroff image.

There is an easier way to change sleeping image. You can put "suspend.jpg" on user partition (/sdcard).

Kernel in the current Android image supports resolutions up to 1024x758. For Aura HD (at least because of different resolution but there may be other differences) someone is needed to patch the kernel. Without it - it has no right to work.

I think I know how to do it but Aura HD is so expensive reader that I don't plan to buy it. And merging Android specific stuff to Aura HD's kernel and testing it later is not a one evening job.

It would be easier I think to add Aurahd code to the tolino kernel. I've started doing that bot my free time has drastically reduced, since last monday I've got a full time job (I was a student till october). I'll try to keep on working on such projects during the weekends.

Thanks. I was aware for suspend.jpg but still searching for poweroff image !

------------
Where come from the kernel source you recompiled with rotation patch ?
The image has HW CONFIG v1.6

I have found only these two kernels:

from http://www.tolino.de/at/produkte/tol...hnische-daten/
http://tolino.de/wp-uploads/kernel.tar.gz 158 485 068
HW CONFIG is v1.7 (within ntx_hwconfig.c)

from http://naberius.de/category/linux/programming/kernel/
http://tolino.naberius.de/kernel.tar.gz 114 164 844
HW CONFIG is v1.3 (within ntx_hwconfig.c)

Or perhaps you have left untouched the HW CONFIG v1.6 from original image and used one of these two above ?

[Edit]
I have found the kernel on your github account.
It's the HWConfig v1.3 version, am I right ?
You have only modified drivers/input/touchscreen/zforce_i2c.c ?
