  • RKFlashkit w/ Rikomagic -- partition issues

    Hi guys, I'm continuing to work with the Rikomagic EVO, planning to install Picuntu 4.5.

    My query relates specifically to RKFlashkit, but I think it is worth posting here in case anyone can give me a 'Gotcha!'

    I'm expecting to replace Ubuntu with Picuntu. The EVO ships from Rikomagic with a working Ubuntu 12.04. I therefore assume that it has boot, kernel and system partitions (plus the others that aren't accessible via RKFlashkit).

    I invoke RKFlashkit with 'sudo rkflashkit' (which logically should avoid any permissions issues around libusb?)

    I boot the EVO with a paperclip in the appropriate hole. It appears in the RKFLASHKIT 'Devices' submenu.

    However, in the 'NAND partitions' submenu I can see only the partitions 'BOOT' and 'KERNEL', not 'SYSTEM'.

    Do I need to reformat with the Windows tool to build the missing partition? Or is there an existing 'SYSTEM' partition that RKFlashkit can't get hold of for some reason?

    Here's the output of the terminal from which I invoked RKFlashkit:

    sudo rkflashkit
    200.0 0.0
    200.0 0.0
    /usr/share/rkflashkit/lib/rkflashkit/main.py:89: GtkWarning: gtk_text_buffer_emit_insert: assertion `g_utf8_validate (text, len, NULL)' failed
    self.__text_buffer.insert(self.__text_buffer.get_e nd_iter(), message)

    200.0 0.0
    210.0 0.0
    225.0 0.0
    255.0 0.0

    Googling the GTK warning didn't tell me much, but maybe it will make sense to someone else...

    TIA, W.

      Hi,

      first let me say a big "thank you" to all contributors of PicUntu!

      I've been (or still am) a vivid user of the old Picuntu on my RK3066 UG007. Just recently I got a RK3188 UG007B and upgraded it to a custom Android 4.4 ROM with bootloader V2.13. Switching back to the "old" 1.2 or 1.24 bootloader for Picuntu 4.5 seems to always brick my device. Lucky enough I've been able to get Android 4.4 running again.

      Question is: Is there any way to install Picuntu with 2.X bootloader?

      Thanks for all your work!

      Alex
