Clients for bootloaders on gr8. These support USB flashing.
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install android-tools-fastboot
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install libusb-1.0-0-dev pkg-config git clone https://github.com/linux-sunxi/sunxi-tools.git pushd sunxi-tools make make install popd ```
brew install android-platform-tools

On macOS, you'll need to launch the Docker application from your Applications folder before you can run these scripts. This can take about 10-15 minutes, depending on your computer.
scripts/build-gadget make chippro_defconfig
Creating this config file takes less than a minute.
If you want to add some capabilities to the default rootfs, you can use an ncurses UI to navigate the many options of buildroot:
scripts/build-gadget make nconfig
If you want to add some capabilities to the kernel, you can use an ncurses UI to navigate the many options:
scripts/build-gadget make linux-nconfig
Now you are ready to build!
scripts/build-gadget make -s
This can take an hour or more.
Now that you have built an operating system, you can flash it to CHIP Pro.
Hold down the fel button and power up the Dev Board and
The image will flash to the CHIP Pro. Once flashing has finished, you can connect via UART and start using it.
If the dev kit already has a gadget OS on it and you are re-flashing, boot CHIP Pro, then open a terminal. Use the command:
This will reboot into a flashing mode. From your computer's command line in the gadget-os-proto docker, run the flash script:
It will complaing that FEL device is not found, then after a few seconds, begin flashing from fastboot.
If the repo is updated and you want to reflash, from your local repo directory, you can use the appropriate arguments to
scripts/build-gadget make gadget-init-scripts-reconfigure all # for default
scripts/build-gadget make demo-blinkenlights-reconfigure all # ... blinkenlights
scripts/build-gadget make demo-micrecorder-reconfigure all # ... micrecorder
scripts/build-gadget make demo-wirelessap-reconfigure all # ... wirelessap
Then try the "Alternatively" procedure above to reflash.
There are some examples on the system you just flashed.
Try the blinking lights example. From CHIP Pro's prompt:
This blinks the 8 LEDs on CHIP's GPIO in various patterns.
Now try the VU meter example
Scream loudly, speak softly, tap the mics, and MAKE SOME NOISE, SPORTSFANS!. You'll see the LEDs light, proporitional to the volume of the noise.
