[DEVs] Firmware Summary

Information taken from the archive names in the Amazon posted source file archives, as of 2013/02/16.

Viewable here:
http://drpbox.knetconnect.com/firm/

And attached here as a spreadsheet file.
BIG NOTE: The final extension (.gz) was added to keep the forum software happy.
Just rename the file without the (.gz) extension!

A post with a directory of sorts to the collection of initramfs and dot-config files is at:
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...5&postcount=23

A post with the summary of kernel module versions, with links to the posts having the module tar-balls is at:
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...3&postcount=36

Still lacking a K2 binary to fondle, but ....

Our little, "alpha preview" of a module set for all KUAL supported devices.
A ready to mount, cramfs image, to mount at: /mnt/us/extensions/system/lib/modules
(if you don't have that path - make it)
Access to current machines module tree is by the usual: lib/modules/`uname -r` path.
The module trees all have the usual depmod files.

  • K2: Untested
  • DX: Works
  • K3: Works
  • K4: Works
  • K5(both): Works

Your need to manually remove the trailing ".zip" from the cramfs file.
USE A RENAME FUNCTION - even if your zip utility thinks it can open it!!
The ".zip" is just to keep the forum software happy.

It'd be nice to see version of libstdc++ in this list (where applicable).

Anything else?

It has been a fairly long 3 days, it may take me a few before I can look at this file of 4 Million + records again without getting sick of it.
So anything that might be a basic, system's compatibility, item.

EDIT:
Would the version of u-boot be useful on that list?

Thank you.
You can see a definite trend to their 'release policy' there.

Speculation: Maybe they filled that 'Compliance Officer' position that was open with someone who knows what they are doing. (They never had to ship the sources of the GPL toolchain.)

OR
We (devs) know what the English translation of the Amazon policy statement: "Amazon does not support customized software." really is, maybe they are just getting very serious about that.

The '-lab126' was dropped from the kernel archive name because those contain an archive of the Amazon patches.
Nice of them to extract all of their changes for us.

The 'eglibc' bundle also contains an archive of Ubuntu patches to the original named version.

I also have a list, by firmware release, of every OSS archive named.
The one shown on the above page was only a few hundred records, the all-inclusive list is about 9,000.
I will have to script up something to translate that one into a table or tables. Expect a delay on that listing.

Yeah, this morning I can see some 'oops' (capitalization errors) and the lost of which firmwares are identical on different machine models.

Will fix all of that up when I add libstdc++ and klibc .

Three more columns isn't going to hurt that page any and might be useful.

K4 Specifics (from the binaries)

K4(main-4.1.0. kernel):
Code:
Linux-2.6.31-rt11-lab126
armv7
vermagic=2.6.31-rt11-lab126 mod_unload ARMv7 
/home/jenkins-official/workspace/OFFICIAL-H2-Yoshi/os/linux/linux-2.6.31/drivers/usb/gadget/arcotg_udc.c
GCC: (Linaro GCC 4.5-2011.04-0) 4.5.3 20110406 (prerelease)
aeabi
MISSING: Cortex-A8

Check that one for gzip signatures:
Code:
core2quad main $ od -A d -t x1 kernel_main_4.1.0 | grep '1f 8b 08 00' | wc -l
47
47? 47!! - Unless those are a lot of "false positives", that kernel will be a lot of fun to take apart!
See: http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...8&postcount=14

K4(diags-4.0, kernel):
Code:
Linux-2.6.31-rt11-lab126
armv7
vermagic=2.6.31-rt11-lab126 mod_unload ARMv7 
/home/build/src/yoshi/diags/hera-DVT1/kernel/linux-2.6.31/dist/drivers/usb/gadget/arcotg_udc.c
GCC: (Linaro GCC 4.5-2011.05-0) 4.5.4 20110505 (prerelease)
aeabi
Cortex-A8
Translation: The kernel modules posted by baf should also work on the K4 (and have been run on both of the K5 devices).

Check that one for gzip signatures:
Code:
core2quad diags $ mv diags_kernel.img kernel_diags_4.0.img
core2quad diags $ od -A d -t x1 kernel_diags_4.0.img | grep '1f 8b 08 00' | wc -l
20
Durn, nearly as bad as the main kernel.

K3 specifics (from binaries)

The K3 kernel is compressed, which makes it a lot more fun - - -

Find the gzip magic number:
Code:
core2quad K3 $ od -A d -t x1 main_kernel-3.4.img | grep '1f 8b 08 00'
0013408 68 65 20 6b 65 72 6e 65 6c 2e 0a 00 1f 8b 08 00
Copy all after that magic number:
Code:
core2quad K3 $ dd if=main_kernel-3.4.img bs=1 skip=13420 of=main_kernel-3.4.gz
2154388+0 records in
2154388+0 records out
2154388 bytes (2.2 MB) copied, 8.9767 s, 240 kB/s
Notice that you have to count upto (including the first byte) the magic number.

Check that you got what you expected:
Code:
core2quad K3 $ od -A d -t x1 main_kernel-3.4.gz | grep '1f 8b 08 00'
0000000 1f 8b 08 00 fb 7d 42 50 02 03 9c bd 0d 7c 54 c5

core2quad K3 $ file main_kernel-3.4.gz
main_kernel-3.4.gz: gzip compressed data, from Unix, last modified: Sat Sep  1 16:28:27 2012, max compression
The magic number is now aligned at the start of the file, and 'file' recognizes it.

Uncompress the little sucker:
Code:
core2quad K3 $ gunzip main_kernel-3.4
gzip: main_kernel-3.4.gz: decompression OK, trailing garbage ignored
Well Phooey, how many times did they compress this thing?

Code:
core2quad K3 $ od -A d -t x1 main_kernel-3.4 | grep '1f 8b 08 00'
0098944 1f 8b 08 00 f7 7d 42 50 02 03 bc 5a 0f 6c 14 57
3001360 47 5f 53 54 1f 8b 08 00 f5 7d 42 50 02 03 94 3c
Two compressed files inside of a compressed file, oh what fun we have.

The first file:

Code:
core2quad K3 $ od -A d -t x1 main_kernel-3.4 | grep '1f 8b 08 00'
0098944 1f 8b 08 00 f7 7d 42 50 02 03 bc 5a 0f 6c 14 57

3001360 47 5f 53 54 1f 8b 08 00 f5 7d 42 50 02 03 94 3c
core2quad K3 $ dd if=main_kernel-3.4 bs=1 skip=98944 of=main_kernel-3.4.b.gz
3776904+0 records in
3776904+0 records out
3776904 bytes (3.8 MB) copied, 15.7225 s, 240 kB/s

core2quad K3 $ od -A d -t x1 main_kernel-3.4.b.gz | grep '1f 8b 08 00'
0000000 1f 8b 08 00 f7 7d 42 50 02 03 bc 5a 0f 6c 14 57
2902416 47 5f 53 54 1f 8b 08 00 f5 7d 42 50 02 03 94 3c

core2quad K3 $ file main_kernel-3.4.b.gz
main_kernel-3.4.b.gz: gzip compressed data, from Unix, last modified: Sat Sep  1 16:28:23 2012, max compression

core2quad K3 $ gunzip main_kernel-3.4.b.gz
gzip: main_kernel-3.4.b.gz: decompression OK, trailing garbage ignored

core2quad K3 $ file main_kernel-3.4.b
main_kernel-3.4.b: ASCII cpio archive (SVR4 with no CRC)
The first of the two compressed files statically linked to the kernel (making them GPL) is the initramFS.

So turn that into a file system tree again, just for the interested (keep in mind, this binary is staticly linked into a GPL binary).

Code:
core2quad K3 $ mkdir initramfs-3.4

core2quad K3 $ cd initramfs-3.4

core2quad initramfs-3.4 $ sudo su

core2quad initramfs-3.4 # cpio -i -d -m --no-absolute-filenames -I ../main_kernel-3.4.b
cpio: Removing leading `/' from member names
2073 blocks
You **MUST** be 'root' to preserve permissions and ownership (and create any special files).
So it is utmost importance that you include that: "--no-absolute-filenames" option unless you intend to trash your workstation.

What did that give us?
Code:
core2quad initramfs-3.4 # ls -l
total 28
drwxr-xr-x 2 1004 5000 4096 2013-02-19 13:53 bin
drwxr-xr-x 7 root root 4096 2013-02-19 13:53 dev
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root   18 2013-02-19 13:53 init -> /bin/recovery-util
drwxr-xr-x 3 1004 5000 4096 2013-02-19 13:53 lib
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 2012-09-01 16:28 proc
drwx------ 2 root root 4096 2012-09-01 16:28 root
drwxr-xr-x 2 1004 5000 4096 2012-09-01 16:28 sbin
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 2012-09-01 16:28 sys
Since everything in that is (now) GPL because it was staticly linked into a GPL binary, will just tar-ball it and attach it here.
BIG NOTE: There is a way to build a kernel that uses an initramfs file that **DOES NOT** require it to be staticly linked into the kernel binary. Since Amazon chose to give this one away, we will just accept their offer here.

The second file:

Code:
core2quad K3 $ dd if=main_kernel-3.4 bs=1 skip=3001364 of=main_kernel-3.4.a.gz
874484+0 records in
874484+0 records out
874484 bytes (874 kB) copied, 3.37191 s, 259 kB/s
core2quad K3 $ od -A d -t x1 main_kernel-3.4.a.gz | grep '1f 8b 08 00'
0000000 1f 8b 08 00 f5 7d 42 50 02 03 94 3c db 72 db 36
Check what that yielded:
Code:
core2quad K3 $ file main_kernel-3.4.a.gz
main_kernel-3.4.a.gz: gzip compressed data, from Unix, last modified: Sat Sep  1 16:28:21 2012, max compression
Give that one a chance:
Code:
core2quad K3 $ gunzip main_kernel-3.4.a
gzip: main_kernel-3.4.a.gz: decompression OK, trailing garbage ignored
Ah, that file-in-a-file is the compressed kernel configuration file (at run-time, accessible in /proc).
That will do for this post.

Main, Kernel-4.1.0 summary

47? 47!! - Unless those are a lot of "false positives", that kernel will be a lot of fun to take apart!

Deep breath now and hope that is 45 "false positives".

Spoiler:

Starting from with the last one:
Code:
core2quad main $ od -A d -t x1 kernel_main_4.1.0 | grep '1f 8b 08 00' 
3723776 9b 7c 41 c0 49 4b 43 46 47 5f 53 54 1f 8b 08 00

core2quad main $ dd if=kernel_main_4.1.0 bs=1 skip=3723788 of=km-4.1.0-99.gz
1125876+0 records in
1125876+0 records out
1125876 bytes (1.1 MB) copied, 4.28303 s, 263 kB/s

core2quad main $ od -A d -t x1 km-4.1.0-99.gz | grep '1f 8b 08 00' 
0000000 1f 8b 08 00 32 5c c0 4f 02 03 94 5c 59 6f e3 38

core2quad main $ gunzip km-4.1.0-99
gzip: km-4.1.0-99.gz: decompression OK, trailing garbage ignored

core2quad main $ file km-4.1.0-99
km-4.1.0-99: ASCII English text
core2quad main $ less km-4.1.0-99
Hmm...
The dot-config for main-4.1.0, thank you Amazon, we will keep it.

Code:
core2quad main $ cp km-4.1.0-99 dot-config-main-4.1.0
core2quad main $ gzip dot-config-main-4.1.0
Later - much, too much later:
As it occurs to dumb-dumb here to read the config file saved this afternoon:
Code:
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_INITRD=y
CONFIG_INITRAMFS_SOURCE="initramfs-tequila.list"
CONFIG_INITRAMFS_ROOT_UID=0
CONFIG_INITRAMFS_ROOT_GID=0
CONFIG_RD_GZIP=y
# CONFIG_RD_BZIP2 is not set
# CONFIG_RD_LZMA is not set
CONFIG_INITRAMFS_COMPRESSION_NONE=y
# CONFIG_INITRAMFS_COMPRESSION_GZIP is not set
# CONFIG_INITRAMFS_COMPRESSION_BZIP2 is not set
# CONFIG_INITRAMFS_COMPRESSION_LZMA is not set
That explains a lot.

Knowing from the dot-config file that the initramfs file isn't compressed, then we need to search for the cpio (-H newc mode) magic number.
Ref: https://www.kernel.org/doc/Documenta...-initramfs.txt

After correcting certain cockpit errors here, ready to continue:

Having confirmed the location of the compressed dot-config, trim the kernel image by that amount:
Code:
core2quad main $ dd if=main_kernel-4.1.0.img bs=1 count=3723788 of=km-4.1.0-trim.bin 
3723788+0 records in
3723788+0 records out
3723788 bytes (3.7 MB) copied, 16.38 s, 227 kB/s
Search what remains for the cpio -H newc mode, magic number:
Spoiler:

Every record header in the cpio format starts with this same magic number.
Code:

So starting at the first one, is the correct place to start if wanting the entire cpio archive:
Code:
core2quad main $ od -A d -t x1 km-4.1.0-trim.bin | grep '30 37 30 37 30 31'
0100096 30 37 30 37 30 31 30 30 30 30 30 32 44 31 30 30

core2quad main $ dd if=km-4.1.0-trim.bin bs=1 skip=100096 of=km-4.1.0-trim.cpio 
3623692+0 records in
3623692+0 records out
3623692 bytes (3.6 MB) copied, 16.2501 s, 223 kB/s

core2quad main $ file km-4.1.0-trim.cpio
km-4.1.0-trim.cpio: ASCII cpio archive (SVR4 with no CRC)
Now you must become the administrative user to correctly un-archive permissions, ownership and special devices.
**BE CERTAIN** to use the: '--no-absolute-filenames' option.
Code:
core2quad main $ mkdir cpio
core2quad main $ cd cpio
core2quad cpio $ sudo su

core2quad cpio # cpio -i -d -m  --no-absolute-filenames -I ../km-4.1.0-trim.cpio
