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


Device firmware releases:
2018/10/01 - https://github.com/OtherCrashOverride/odroid-go-firmware/releases/tag/20181001

The flash procedure is now simplified to a single file that does not require extracting:

Old releases (obsolete):
2018/07/27 - https://github.com/OtherCrashOverride/odroid-go-firmware/releases/tag/20180727
2018/07/26 - https://github.com/OtherCrashOverride/odroid-go-firmware/releases/tag/20180726
2018/07/18 - https://github.com/OtherCrashOverride/odroid-go-firmware/releases/tag/20180718
2018/07/12 - https://github.com/OtherCrashOverride/odroid-go-firmware/releases/tag/20180712

Old release installation:
Download, extract, and flash the odroid-go-firmware device firmware:
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 firmware is flashed, the device can be placed in firmware update mode:
1) Turn the ODROID-GO off
2) Press and hold the "B" button.
3) With the "B" button pressed, turn the ODROID-GO on.
4) Continue holding "B" until the firmware update screen appears (5 seconds).

Hi. This works great, especially after overwriting the Springboard with custom code. But I would request a feature to abort the flash tool and return to Springboard. It is possible to accidentally push B on power on and then you lose the savegame of the last game. Also it would be great to be able different firmware files from the sd card.

Hi guys.
I ask me if its possible to make modified firmware.bin where the Arduino demos are already included. Tetris and Flappybird as additional Menu alongside with Emulators.
Is it technicaly possible?

Thanks

Technically yes, but you need a custom menu (it's in the works)

Something wrong. Blue led slowly flashes 4 times, then begin fast flashing. It repeats after power-off/power-on.
Returning to 20180712 goes with no problems.

....
I flashed it via FlashTool. Flash Menu occured, after Start btn it erased and flashed several blocks with no errors. After reboot it shows no card icon.

Do you need to update the firmware incrementally or can you go straight to the latest release? I haven’t updated mine yet.

Device firmware release 20180101:
https://github.com/OtherCrashOverride/odroid-go-firmware/releases/tag/20181001

This is a maintenance release.
* Improve SD card compatibility.
* Add radio "phy" calibration data structure (fixes Micropython.fw).
* Introduce "utility" application support (currently unused).

A new file format (.img) is used to simplify flashing. The .img file does not require extraction (tar, 7zip, etc). The new single file is flashed at offset 0 (zero) and replaces the previous three file method.
