I have had bad experience with the dfu_util before. It appeared almost the same as your problem. It would download part way and show up as an error.
I originally had a USB extension cable to the back of my computer. Bad idea. I ended up using the (fairly short) cable that came out of the box and it worked perfectly. My connections are sometimes loose though. Maybe this will help. -Boris On Sat, 2008-09-27 at 13:42 +0200, rhn wrote: > Hi > I've just tried to flash my freerunner with the newest FDOM and ran into a > problem with dfu-util. > Long story short, here's the console output: > > > [EMAIL PROTECTED] files]# ./dfu-util -a rootfs -R -D > Fat_and_Dirty_OM.200809_20080927.rootfs.jffs2 > dfu-util - (C) 2007 by OpenMoko Inc. > This program is Free Software and has ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY > > Opening USB Device 0x0000:0x0000... > Claiming USB DFU Runtime Interface... > Determining device status: state = appIDLE, status = 0 > Device really in Runtime Mode, send DFU detach request... > Resetting USB... > Opening USB Device... > Found Runtime: [0x1d50:0x5119] devnum=13, cfg=0, intf=0, alt=6, name="rootfs" > Claiming USB DFU Interface... > Setting Alternate Setting ... > Determining device status: state = dfuIDLE, status = 0 > dfuIDLE, continuing > Transfer Size = 0x1000 > bytes_per_hash=2589982 > Starting download: [#######dfu_download error -71 > Error during download > > > The device used to flash without errors and I can't find any explanation to > this error code. > The file's checksum is correct and it breaks always at the same place. > > I hope the FDOM team will be able to do something about it because I can't > wait to try it out :) > > _______________________________________________ > Openmoko community mailing list > firstname.lastname@example.org > http://lists.openmoko.org/mailman/listinfo/community _______________________________________________ Openmoko community mailing list email@example.com http://lists.openmoko.org/mailman/listinfo/community
