MAGLDR 1.13

After long (about 4 months) under awful developing, DFT proudly presents MAGLDR bootloader - The first bootloader with built-in Tetris!


LEO512 and LEO1024 are supported both.
MAGLDR doesn't replace OSPL/HSPL. It runs in the chain after. So it's safe to install and remove it.
You need HardSPL 2.08 before installation!

History:

V1.11 fixed "GO GO GO stuck issue".
V1.12 added WPH support.
V1.13 added AD Recovery support, fixed few bugs.



Installation:

You need radio which support 576 RAM.
Run ROMUpdateUtility.exe and install it.


Notes:


"Boot AD SD" - boots android from SD card.
zImage and initrd.gz loaded from directory selected via "AD SD Dir" menu.
rel_path=%ADSDDIR% added to kernel command line.

"Boot AD NAND"- boots android from NAND.
zImage and initrd.gz loaded from YAFFS2 partition with "boot" flag.

"Boot WPH" - boots WPH from nand. WPH must be flashed before.

"USB MassStg" - provide SD card as USB Stick to computer. You can copy files via it directly without OS.
Allow to change kernels fast for Android developers.
THIS FEATURE IS STILL EXPERIMENTAL. BE WARNED.

"USB Flasher" - use this item to flash Android or WPH.
"USB TTY" - need same drivers like MTTY for SPL access
"AD HardReset"- erase android partitons with "hr" in the flags. usually you need erase userstore.
"Tetris" - Tetris game. Get 111111 score to activate hidden features of MAGLDR ;)

"DMESG to SD" - dumps dmesg android log to SD card. useful for developers. EXPERIMENTAL.
"DumpUDtoSD" - dumps asize partition to SD card. BUGGY, SLOW and not tested. Don't use it.
"UseLast24NAND" - allow to use last 24 megabytes of NAND. EXPERIMENTAL.
But if you update MAGLDR via RUU or press WM65 hard reset keys.
you will lost this 24 megabytes of data. I
It means data will be corrupted or device won't boot more.
Default is OFF.


Use "Home" key to return back from submenu.
Use "Power" key to enter main menu during autoboot.


New in MAGLDR113 :

*Added support for Android Recovery
*Added support for raw boot partition format (like in native android devices)
*Fixed USBMassStorage data lost on big transfers
*Fixed Power-Off-Cable-Plug-Stop. Phone now detects this situation and reboots. Battery controller inside LEO needs runtime control during charge, it implemented in OS.
*V1.13 still compatible with 1.10 1.11 1.12. Future version maybe not compatible with previous, be warned.
*Added option "ClearSD MBR". which erase MBR, so card can be formatted via any program after WP7 boot ("200 Mb problem").


Future developerment :

*planned to add Haret's startup.txt support for Android SD
*fast boot support (?)
*support of fixed partitions layout with ability to reflash any partition
*WM65 NAND boot with any rom (?)
*WM65 NAND boot with special designed roms for MAGLDR boot.

Ermmm....excuse me for the noob question but this thing will get rid off windows of my Mobile's Nand and will be replaced with Android??????? Can someone guide us how to do it? I don't want to brick my phone!

    Thread about LEO "Stock" Android NAND ROM

    HAPPY NEW YEAR!,

    Hello,


    I want try to explain several things, there are many rumors around I think.


    First of all I want to say that those hobby projects (MAGLDR and etc) comes NOT ONLY from me.
    It comes from entire team, DFT team.
    You should always considering it so.
    I did the most of work of MAGLDR alone, but it still includes software, resources, hardware, testing, moral support from the team.
    Without them nothing was created by me: HSPL, MAGLDR, and etc.
    I have NO RIGHTS to manage all that without DFT team.


    Last times we got less people in our team, some people become very busy (no time for hobby) and some retire by different reasons (family, education, etc) It's their right.
    (I think oldschool guys still remember bepe and his WM kitchen and another cool stuffs. :cool: )
    I am also become more busy nowdays, life is life, everything is changing very often.


    About LEO projects...
    Actually we failed on scheduling time right and understand how hard to finish most of them.
    It's very big projects.
    Initial MAGLDR version was done very fast and with a lot of problems. Then I decided to reimplement it from zero.
    But the first attempt fails, so I started again and then it become very complex and large.
    And still many things must be done ever for the first release :(


    About device change...
    My LEOs seems are broken: one got problem with buttons and another got many bad blocks :(
    Well LEO's hardware become older and older.
    LEO was good device I learned a lot of with it, but I decided to switch myself to the new more powerful device with a lot of new opportunities.

    HTC One should be good device for new fun.
    I hope that time DFT will use another strategy "release less, but more often" to prevent collecting non finished stuff.


    About source codes...
    DFT team rules prohibits releasing source codes and information.
    It's not our goal. Our goal make funny and interesting things with mobile devices and share it with people to give them fun too.

    Many other teams around XDA are also using same rules... so it's ok.


    We followed our rules by years and it's why we are still alive,
    unlike some guys who shared much in the past and then disappear very fast by various reasons
    (for example 911sniper, who released a lot of fresh HTC RUU)
    As well DFT doesn't have goal to 'show off' infront of community and world. It's cheap and not persistent.

    Another problem that except users who really just like to mod and play with mobile devices, there are some people who
    1)making illegal things (changing IMEIs on stolen phones, hacking networks and etc) 2)making money on that.
    We consider our team as hobby only, so it's not our goal to help such persons.
    Triggering such things will bite our community as well.


    Actually most of stuff on XDA is illegal. It's fact. Just for now most companies close eyes on that.
    But it doesn't mean that it will be always - good example is the lastest HTC actions: 'war against RUU'.
    So our actions nowdays in the community define our future as well, we must be careful.
    Releasing too much today may mean NOTHING in the future. no WP8 unlocks, no WP9 unlocks, nothing!


    Another thing WRT/WP7/WP8 - it's NOT Android's world with AOSP open source.
    It's completely closed source and any actions with that illegal.
    I hope nobody cares when we are not making money on that and we are not crossing some 'line'.


    Conclusion...
    Ofcourse all that is sorrowfully,
    I am sure there are few good guys who probably could continue some projects and reach success,
    but our world is not ideal, unfortunately. So it's impossible.




    I hope you understand our reasons or got a new view to the problem.
    Before telling "heh, that's bull****!" think that DFT is doing that for almost 8 years and got some experience.

    There were no ideas about green robots and 4 core CPUs and Cotulla afraided to flash his PDA

    1.13 will be released soon :) sorry for delays :(
    1.13 will be compatible with 1.11 and 1.12 :)
    but I think 1.14 or 1.15 may break partition layout, so you will need reinstall rom (any OS).

    I added useful feature - "Remove MBR from SD", allow to restore superfloppy format of card after WPH partitioning.

    So you just run this option then you can format card as usual.
    25
    Release of V1.13 comes soon:


    Already done:


    *fixed USB MassStorage
    On big transfers previous versions sometimes lost one sector. fixed.

    *added recovery support
    New menu item "AD Recovery" allow to boot into recovery. Only for AD NAND.

    *added google "native" boot.img support.
    such kind of binaries can be created by mkbootimg program, it have advantage smaller size, but impossible to update zImage or initrd.

    *solution for power-off-plug-cable
    if you turn device off and then plug USB/AC cable, device will just boot to OS or MAGLDR. This looks like only one possible solution, because LEO's battery controller (DS2746) need manual control of charging. So device boots to Android or WPH and OS drivers control charging process.


    About future DFT development:

    we plan to make (or at least try ;) ) make WM65 SD version, which will runs from SD, like AD before. (two files on SD card with FAT, one file is system file (WM65_OS.bin) and second is data store (Data.fat), filesystem is FAT).
    However expected WM65 won't have access to SD card root (impossible to implement this). But you can always mount in android this Data.fat as loopback image and share files with WM65 if you need!

    Also it's possible to add such kind of option to MAGLDR, which will mount this Data.Fat as USB Mass Storage.
