Puh... :victory:

100 years later seems I have found solution for MTP...

I have taken this RPM from TM1 2.4 Firmware repos...
mtp-responder-0.0.2-1.4.armv7l.rpm

Need little bit time to test if stable Transfer possible...

But this was really annoying...

Best Regards

    Nice idea...

    But many unsolved problems...
    RD-PQ is labeld with I9300A... yes...

    But Call and GPS is for instance disabled...
    Nobody knows or want tell us, if Hardware is 1:1... acccept Display...

    Then Security is much higher in I9300...
    Generally it seems JTAG is locked by password... so only SD card reanimation seems to work...

    I9300 seems not cheap enough to do stupid tests... :D

    Tizen is not finished...
    Only funny rumours...
    Only few Devs with RD-PQ...

    The other RD210 is "obsolete"...

    Too much work for nothing...
    Too risky to brick I9300...

    Maybe 2014, if Tizen is REALLY on market somewhere... with Tizen store open etc.
    Then maybe I9300 cheap or worthy enough to try porting...

    Anyway...
    Feel free to find faster solution to flash RD-PQ Firmware for tests...
    At your own risk.

    All Software floating somewhere around...
    Bootloader, Flasher, Firmware etc...

    I've upgraded Tizen from 2.2 - > 2.3 and used migrate_2.3_bootloader.tar.gz for updating bootloader

    Inside this package I can see params.bin...
    This looks like PIT is update from Version 8 to Version 13... with help of params.bin...

    You can find the PIT files inside u-boot-mmc.bin...
    Attached files for study...

    "We" could try to ask here:
    https://developer.tizen.org/forums/sdk-ide/tizen-2.3-rd-pq-device?tab=active

    If someone downgrade from 2.3 or 2.3.1 back to 2.2 in safe way...
    :confused:

    Memo to me...
    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=47234165&postcount=220

    Code:
    SDCARD MODE
    COPY BINARY FROm SDCARD..
    COPY BINARY TO EMMC..
    SDCARD DOWNLOAD COMPLETED.

    Will check sboot.bin for these text strings...

    Later more...

    Meanwhile I am trying to split dump... to get whole 16 GB eMMC with internal sdcard space...
    Code:
    dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0 skip=0 count=10000000 of=/sdcard/dump_v1.bin
    dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0 skip=10000000 count=10000000 of=/sdcard/dump_v2.bin
    dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0 skip=20000000 of=/sdcard/dump_v3.bin

    Need an while to check if this is working... proper...
    Theory...
    first 5 GB... then second 5 GB... then last 6 GB...
    Remember, only 11 GB free space... so not possible at 1 move...
    I need only the last 6 GB for my study... first 11 GB I have allready...

    Best Regards

    Edit 1.
    Memo to me...
    1 test could be change THOR string into ODIN in 1Click Thor for Windows...
    To see if Protocol is maybe same...

    Download Mode key combo looks different for I9300 and RD-PQ

    I9300:
    Code:
    Step 4. Set your phone in download mode (Turn off phone, then hold Volume Down+Home+Power button simultaneously) Then it ask you to press a Volume Up button to continue.

    3 keys + 1 for confirm...

    RD-PQ:
    https://wiki.tizen.org/wiki/Reference_Device-PQ
    To go to download mode :

    remove battery (optionnal)
    unplug USB
    press Power Button + VolDown Button simultaneously.
    plug in USB

    2 keys only...

    If I have working Display so I will repair also all keys...
    For now I have no working key... only Power... Volume + and - is absent/missing...
    Home key seems damaged...

    For DL Mode I have simple USB JIG... plug in and it is working.
    :good:

    Short analyze of dump.bin from RD-PQ... and compared with my dump of mmcblk0...

    Code:
    		S3 Android			Tizen RD-PQ dump
    0000 0000 	- 512 Byte header + EFI stuff
    0000 4400 	- PIT file			0x8000
    		- ??? data
    0001 0000 - end - 0000 zero/empty		uboot

    PIT File is on differnt position... uboot starts at 0x10000 in RD-PQ... and I9300 have 12 MB empty space at this position...

    AND very funny... I made in my working I9300 again dd dump... and I saw Tizen PIT is not overwritten, also it seems uboot is not overwritten/deleted... :D

    I must wait for my spareparts... Display and keys... before I proceed with my experiments...

    Best Regards

    There's nothing at present. Once Tizen matures and hopefully internal builds leak out we may be in luck. Lots of unknown variables at present.
