Firmware Updates

Unread postby crashoverride » Thu Jun 28, 2018 7:32 am

Firmware updates will be posted to this thread when available. These should be considered 'test versions' until posted to the wiki. Please post any issues encountered to the github repository.

[NOTICE: Erasing the flash will also erase any game state currently in progress. To avoid this, load a different ROM before erasing the flash.]

As of the 2018/06/29 update, the firmware must be built with a patched esp-idf located here:
https://github.com/OtherCrashOverride/esp-idf/tree/release/v3.1-odroid

[edit]
For those flashing with the Windows utility, please note the offsets have changed from previous releases:
https://wiki.odroid.com/odroid_go/emulator/firmware_update#import_binaries_and_start_to_upload
They should now be:
Code: Select all
 bootloader.bin 0x1000
 partitions.bin 0x8000
 springboard-go.bin 0x10000
 nesemu-go.bin  0x100000
 gnuboy-go.bin  0x200000
 smsplus-go.bin 0x300000

https://github.com/OtherCrashOverride/go-play/releases/tag/20180702-psram
Code: Select all
    [GB] Demand load page.
    [NES] Experimental workaround for PSRAM issue.


This release make GB/GBC loading very fast by only loading data from the SD card as needed. This may cause a small "studder" in certain games.

The crashing issue with the NES SMB3 game should be resolved, but further testing is required.

Turn off then try On + MenĂ¹ to exit from the emulators.
Or try to reset the procedure from the beginning, for me it works.
I format also the sd card
I have a set of nes roms that works but i can't find other consoles. Anyone suggest?

Thanks

[This firmware update is not recommended for novices]

A new firmware release can be found here:
https://github.com/OtherCrashOverride/go-play/releases/tag/20180708
Download the "firmware.bin" file and copy it to the SD card (root) folder.


Download, extract, and flash the odroid-go-firmware device firmware:
https://github.com/OtherCrashOverride/odroid-go-firmware/releases/tag/20180708
The procedure is the same as flashing previous firmware. However, the files have changed:
Code: Select all
bootloader.bin 0x1000
partitions.bin 0x8000
odroid-go-firmware.bin 0x10000


After the new firmware is flashed, the blue LED will flash very slowly. If it flashes rapidly, there is a problem with the "firmware.bin" file on the SD card. After four (4) very slow flashes, the normal menu should appear.

Good evening, I have a question: How do I reset a rom in odroid GO, resetting the memory of the last exit from the game?
Sorry but I do not speak English well

Firmware update:
https://github.com/OtherCrashOverride/go-play/releases/tag/20180710

To upgrade from previous version:
1) Copy the "firmware.bin" to your SD card.
2) Insert the SD card in the ODROID-GO.
3) Turn off the ODROID-GO.
4) Press and hold the "B" button.
5) With the "B" pressed, turn the ODROID-GO on.
6) Wait 10 seconds.
7) Release the "B" button.

The update process will begin and the blue LED will blink slowly 4 times. If the LED blinks rapidly, there is an issue with the "firmware.bin" file on the SD card. When the update is complete, the menu will be displayed. The previous release can be restored by repeating the procedure with the previous "firmware.bin" file.

For me, the problem was: you need 20180708 to be able to update this way.

In the firmware releases, it sounds like you would need 20180702, which is the last update you can download there with the old update procedure.

I found the 20180708 update for the old procedure somewhere else.

1) Flash the ODROID-GO device firmware:
viewtopic.php?f=158&t=31513

2) Download the "firmware.bin" file and place it on the SD card.

3) Enter firmware update mode.

All future updates will require the ODROD-GO device firmware.
