I have several raq4i's. I am tring to upgrade the rom from 2.9.34 to a newer rom. Whenever I try to run the flashtool that I downloaded, it gives me a permission denied message, even though I'm in su mode. any help with this problem would be appreciated.
btw: I'm trying to upgrade the rom due to the fact that the kernel patches will not function on this box, and the roms are different on the other raq4i's that I have upgraded. I can't upgrade the rom with the OS Restore CD cause it believes it is at the right level currently.
This machine runs, however, is the only machine that I have that is not fully patched. any help is appreciated.
yes, I have the raq550 OS running on all of my raq's. I prefer it to the non-updated ones. the raq 4i software just wasn't very nice in my book. and I never said that I was running the raq 4 software, I just need to know the actual flash tool or the way to determine which rom it actuall is. I do know that the main difference between the 2 raq4i's that I have running correctly and this one is the rom version. So, how does one tell if it's the intel or the AMD rom version?
cmos -c romrev gives me the revision of the rom but only the revision number.
I thought I had a null modem cable but it appears that it was not. So, I will get one today and check it out tonight. The box works fine, except that it won't take any of the kernel updates. I might have to just buy the rom chip and solder in the new one, but I'm really hoping it doesn't come down to that.
