Compiled Kernel Files For Chumby Falconwing Version 1.0.7 Build 1.0.3454

This post contains links to compiled kernel files for Chumby Falconwing version 1.0.7 build 1.0.3454. You can use these files to maunally update your Chumby One. To update your Chumby, complete the following steps.

  1. Ensure you can access a shell command prompt on your Chumby. You can either connect a USB keyboard or log in using ssh.
  2. Ensure /mnt/storage is mounted. If it is not mounted, enter the following command: mount /dev/mmblk0p6
  3. Ensure that your Chumby is NOT in recovery mode. Recovery mode (special options mode) is started when you press the touch screen while turning on your Chumby.
  4. If the root partition is not writable, mount the partition as a read-write partition by using the following command: mount -oremount,rw /
  5. Copy the following two files to /mnt/storage:
  6. On your Chumby, change directory to / and enter tar xzf /mnt/storage/install.tgz. This will install files in /lib/modules and /lib/firmware.
  7. Write the new kernel using the config_util command. This procedure is described in steps 8 and 9 on the Building and installing a new chumby One kernel section of the Chumby Wiki. These two steps are repeated here:

    Quote from Chumby Wiki:

    Determine which RFS you’re in. If /proc/cmdline contains “root=/dev/mmcblk0p2” you’re in rfsA. If it contains “root=/dev/mmcblk0p3”, you’re in rfsB.

    Write the new kernel. Use krnA if you’re in rfsA, and krnB if you’re in rfsB: config_util --cmd=putblock --dev=/dev/mmcblk0p1 --block=krnA < /mnt/storage/zImage

  8. Enter the following command: depmod -a
  9. Reboot your Chumby.

You Chumby should now be running the updated kernel. Run cat /proc/version to verify that you are using the new kernel.

The config file that I used to create this build is available here: config.gz

Let me know in comments how this procedure works for you.
