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

    [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 + Menù 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.

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.

viewtopic.php?f=158&t=31513

Application Firmware update:
https://github.com/OtherCrashOverride/go-play/releases/tag/20180718-smsplusgx

1) Flash the 20180718 ODROID-GO device firmware (The older release will not work.)
2) Download the "firmware.bin" file and place it on the SD card.
3) Enter firmware update mode.

Code: Select all
Notes:
    Device firmware 20180718 is required
    New SD card skeleton folders are required: "odroid/data/col" and "roms/col"
    SMS/GG save files are not compatible with new emulator.
    ColecoVison requires a BIOS file on the SD card to operate and is expected at "roms/col/BIOS.col".

Springboard
    Add ColecoVision menu
    Increase menu wrap around speed

All Emulators
    Save/load from SD card
    Improve LCD display functions internally

GB
    Fix truncated sprites
    Fix CPU instruction emulation

SMS
    Replace smsplus with smsplus-gx (improved compatibly)

Coleco
    New emulator
    Select = Reset console, Start = Keypad 1, B = Left button, A = Right button


This release replaces the smsplus emulator with a port of smsplus-gx. This increases compatibility with SMS and GG titles. It also provides the new ColecoVision emulation.

flashing the 20180718-smsplusgx firmware (for me) results in an error screen with a yellow X box over the red sd card icon (and won't boot further). I notice in the Notes, it says "Device firmware 20180718 is required", is there a 'plain' 20180718 firmware that needs to be flashed first? I don't see it on github, if so.

You need to add the "col" folders to the SD card as mentioned in the release notes:

I missed that, my mistake! Looks good, I'll play around with some ColecoVision roms now.

The new firmware (20180718) is great! Love the addition of Colecovision support.

In regards to the saving, does this mean that this is exclusively done directly to and from SD card now, or does it still flash to the memory on the Odroid at some point and need to be flushed to SD? I only ask this because in my tests, the saving and loading appear to be as fast as the previous firmware still, so just wanted to check! Thanks!

Yes, the 20180718-smsplusgx release reads and writes directly to the SD card. The internal flash is no longer used as temporary storage so there is no longer a "flush".

jpxdude wrote:the saving and loading appear to be as fast as the previous firmware still

The save state is very small relative to modern SD card sizes. The is no significant performance difference due to this. The internal flash was originally used due to technical limitations of the esp-idf SDK preventing the LCD and SD card being used concurrently. While this issue is still present "upstream", a patched SDK is now used that allows both to share the SPI bus.

Reading and writing directly to SD card was introduced in the following commits:
https://github.com/OtherCrashOverride/go-play/commit/d17c20e6dc9ca853310677d21efbc83c6f613fd8
https://github.com/OtherCrashOverride/go-play/commit/fabc85ecd02dfd431d8e045c16fdba14617afa31
https://github.com/OtherCrashOverride/go-play/commit/ec2251d6b4d045ca0dcdaa90463b7ae580aff501

The patched SDK is located here:

You have to make sure you erase and flash the newest Odroid-Go firmware using the updater tool first, otherwise it won't work. There was an Odroid firmware (to flash). There is also an application firmware (firmware.bin) which needs to be added to the SD card to update by holding the B button when switching on.

You need to flash the 20180718 device firmware. Previous versions are not compatible with the 20180718-smsplusgx application firmware (firmware.bin).

You need to flash the updated device firmware first:
viewtopic.php?f=158&t=31513

When you enter firmware update mode (power + B), it will say "ODROID-GO Firmware" at the top of the display. Below that will show the version number. It should start with "ver: 20180718-". In the center of the screen, you should see "go-play-20180718".

Hi Guys

wondering if anyone can help. not normally an idiot at these kind of things but cant seem to update firmware

Odroid go, win 10 pc running 20180702

do i need to just put the 20180718-smsplusgx's firmware.bin on the root of the sd card and hold down b and power on to update

or do i need to flash the 20180718 device firmware which i think is below using the esp32 win tool?

https://github.com/OtherCrashOverride/o ... g/20180718

the problem is the wiki tells you to flash 6 items, but the link above only has bootloader, firmware and partitions?

thanks for the help in advance

Hey guys, bit lost with the latest update (20180806), as it seems to use the old dos prompt update method. I was used to using the flashing tool and sd card combo. I couldn't get the esptool thing to work and I'm kinda glad it didn't work, as it was probably likely to brick my unit since I didn't know what I was doing. Anyone know if there is another version in the works?

The first post always shows the current release. There is no 20180806 release of Go-Play.fw.

Since this thread is for release info, open a new forum thread with links to what you are trying to flash.

There is no firmware with the date you listed. The latest firmware is from 20180727.

There was a "20180806-factory" device firmware published for development testing. It is a snapshot of a point in time in development and not a release. It is only intended for those helping me test.

That's fine. Is there a roadmap of future releases and what to expect, or do I just have to keep my eye on the issues raised on the github?

The device firmware is currently in "feature freeze" in preparation for the first official release. No additional features are scheduled to be added.

Application Firmware update:
https://github.com/OtherCrashOverride/go-play/releases/tag/20180810

1) Download the "Go-Play.fw" file and place it on the SD card in /odroid/firmware.
2) Ensure you have 20180726 (or later) ODROID-GO device firmware (The previous releases will not work.)

Optional ROM artwork:
https://dn.odroid.com/ODROID_GO/romart-20180810.tgz
Mirror:
http://tree.cafe/romart-20180810.tgz

Download and extract to the root of your SD card.

[edit]
Special thanks to @kamots for hosting the romart file, helping with debugging, and producing youtube videos to help the community.

[edit2]
Added HardKernel hosted romart link.

Hi

I'm a bit confused !
I downloaded the file 5 times (in case i made a mistake) but it is Always Go-Play (20180726) once flash Ver: 20180726-278acb37b

I dunno if it is a bad file or a bad flash (not flashing in reality)

Issues and questions should be posted to a new forum thread.

The .fw files include a checksum. The description "Go-Play (20180726)" is part of the data that is checksummed. This means the file being flashed is what is described and not corrupt. For continued discussion, please open a new thread on the forum.

[edit]
I should add that when most browsers download a file, they will add something to the end if the file already exists. For example, if you previously downloaded "Go-Play.fw", the next time you download it the browser may rename the new downloaded file to "Go-Play(1).fw" or similar.

Have you got a list of the artwork file names? I've only got a 128 meg card in mine at the moment, so I don't want every single cover (all 120 meg of it). I also don't know what to do about missing ones....
