So, just to clarify:
you made a bin with dd of your /dev/mtdblock/0
you used dd to write the SAME bin (can you confirm that?) to the /dev/mtdblock/0?
Or did you modify the /dev/mtdblock/0 (like change the bootcode, settings, whatever) using a hex editor?
After loading the HW register settings, the next step is to load the bootcode, according to that Chinese bootcode recovery document. So, from that document:
- Open the terminal, following the blank keys and then boot, the system shows "s / d / g / c>" representatives to the recovery mode
- Press "s" ready to send HW register setting
- Select transfer -> send the file, specify the appropriate HW register setting file, protocol, please select "Ymodem".á(Not Ymodem-G)
- Transmission is completed if the display "hello world!", On behalf of HW register setting sent successfully.
- Press "d" ready to send updated bootcode
- Select transfer -> send the file, specify the appropriate bootcode image, protocol, please select "Ymodem".áHere's transmission rate than Ethernet download slow (1.4MB 8 minutes)
- The transfer is complete CRC calculation will take some time (Note) After calculated as shown below:
- Press "g" to perform the update bootcode
- See the "Finish" on behalf of updates bootcode completed, you can reboot.
So it sounds like you did steps 1-4, now you need to do steps 5-9.
To do that you need a bootcode. ASUS has not released a bootcode update bin for the OPLAY- they simplay have some that shipped with 0000.0202.0017 and some that shipped with 0000.0202.0018.
Since you are out of luck on that front, why don't you try the bootcode 18 bin from patriot? the worst that could happen is you'll still have a non-working unit.
Here's a link to pbo's bootcode 18:
Please answer my questions and supply logs if you can,
No i dont modify file /dev/mtdblock/0
i just want to change this block from my player boot17 on another player boot18. But first try on original block.
Now we can change boot another way (we have boot23)
But right now i wish recover my player.
File mars.QFP.128x1.bin from archive dont work correctly
I must reseve "Hello world!" and send bootcode, but terminal wrote "hello w" and nothing. i cant send becouse player dont recieve file.
s/d/g/c>s --- i press "s" for send mars.QFP.128x1.bin
Ymodem: --- player ready recieve file
crc32:0x2E219111, len:0x000003EC hello w --- finish(!!!)
crc32:0x2E219111, len:0x000003EC hello world!
s/d/g/c> --- for press "d"
I need correct HW settings file (that file for RTD1283? my player RTD1073DD)

I'm still looking into this but:
the 5005.rar GPL release from briteview is for there CinemaTube Player, which is reported to be a rtd1073dd everywhere I can find it.
What's more, I think it is strange that your example above shows a crc32 (2E219111) that is different from the one calculated on the file using the CRCfile.exe on the mars.QFP.128x1.bin: 51fc6fb.
the md5sum of the mars.QFP.128x1.bin is 8026b072d82778ed184a4369ec70c1bd
you should check and make sure your file is not corrupted and that your serial connection is clean.
Thanks for your help wigout

For anyone who cares to "follow" along here,
here is a search for volotova on the new server for moservices forum:
I'm glad he was successful- I hope he can update his links (they apparently updated the server over night).
thank you for the update.
Can you supply a link to the bootcode 23 that you used? And give the story of how it was acquired? As I understand it, asus has not released any bootcode bins as of yet....
Don't know how i can download file in message http://www.moservices.org/forum/down...7ad2e08af3289b this bootcode 23 for asus oplay
And i don`t know who give this bootcode & where is it from. But its real boot for asus
ps for admin, please correct my message for understanding. sorry for my english
Hey, you don't have to apologize for your English.
I can't speak but a word of Russian.
Thank you for the precise links.
One more question: having restored your hwsetting.bin and loaded bootcode 23, do you still see an asus logo on bootup?
A different logo?
No logo at all?
Startup player with ussual logo ASUS.
Nothing change, except bootcode 23.
and now i have working key RESET autorecover.
and i can try to use fw ASUS HD2 with SDK4.

"MARS" means both RTD1073 and RTD1283 -
