What's a Development Box?

We are currently buying some development boxes. These boxes are bought so some guys can work on them without having to look how to keep the services running why they initially bought the box. All boxes are owned by the community...this means that if georg/jonli447/linuxnotincluded think they absolutely have no time in the near future the boxes can be passed to another developer.

All this is based on confidence.

Needs for additional boxes?

  • timtimred - lspro for openembedded work
  • germany - andre - HG/HS for testing the PPC kernel also on these systems
  • NAiL - foonas/openembedded work - requires PPC box

List of Development Boxes

Here we list all Development Boxes and the history of each one.

LS2 bought from ebay

This box was a hardware-brick. It did not boot anymore because the microcontroller was severely damaged.

Old Locations

  • Dusseldorf, Germany - bought from ebay
  • Tampa, Florida, USA - tampakuro for repair and JTAG and Serial console installation. tampakuro completely revived it.

LINKS: Hardware_Hacks_for_the_LS2

Current status

  • UK - linuxnotincluded for porting UBoot to the LS2

LSPro bought from doc007

doc007 got it from ebay. but it was a real brick in the end.

Old Locations

  • unknown - doc007

Current status

  • Tampa, Florida, USA - tampakuro to use the components as spare parts for maybe fixing other LSPro boxes.

LSPro bought for georg

Current Status

  • Germany - georg for analysing the acp-commands, general testing

LS2 donated by Kaiten

Fully functional but dusty LS2 donated by Kaiten, our webinterface master ;)

Old Locations

  • London, England - linuxnotincluded - u-boot install & flash recovery.
  • Edinburgh, Scotland - Kaiten - a bit late, but better late than never.

Current status

  • England - timtimred - foonas(-em) dev

Next Locations

LS2 bought from Pitty-t from nslu2-info.de

Hopefully only a flash-rom error and reviveable via JTAG.

Old Locations

  • Germany - Pitty-t
  • Austria - mindbender

serial + JTAG headers soldered
serial console working
bootloader seems to be still working
pitty-t`s LS2 story.....

  • US - kuroguy

revived box via jtag

Current status

  • WHO HAS IT?

LS1 donated by 808

808 donated his LS1 to the community.

Old Locations

  • UK - 808
  • Tampa, Florida, USA being fixed before shipping to London, UK

Current status

  • UK - timtimred for testing Open Embedded images

HG donated by cloud

cloud donated his bricked HG-case to the community

Old Locations

  • UK - cloud
  • Vienna, Austria - mindbender

- soldering the JTAG and serial headers - DONE!
- checking via serial if bootloader is ok - it was! replaced with latest UBoot!
- reviving box via flashing UBoot to the HG, then checking if it is a HG with a faulty flash - did only work via JTAG..fully revived!

Current status

  • Germany - andre for testing kernels for UBoot boxes

HG bought for jonli447 at ebay

So he can finally do what he wanted when buying the LS pro.

Old Locations

  • US - tom5126

Current status

  • US - jonli

KuroboxPro bought for timtimred from revogear

So he can test foonas on it!

Current status

  • UK - timtimred
