WAG160Nv2: add params to imagetag tool and create binaries for the web i/f
|Reported by:||jal2@…||Owned by:||developers|
|Priority:||normal||Milestone:||Barrier Breaker 14.07|
The attached patches add some parameters to the imagetag tool in order to create binaries which can be uploaded in the vendor firmware webinterface and by sercomm tools into the bootloader if it is in download mode (by pressing reset during powerup). The last patch adds the creation of two WAG160Nv2 binaries (annex A and B) to the makefile using the new parameters of imagetag.
This change is required as:
a) the bootloader refuses to boot anything if it doesn't find a so-called pid2 at an flash offset >= 0x200000
As we add the pid2 in imagetag, we are restricted to a read-only rootfs right now.
b) the vendor web interface requires the binary to start with a 64 KByte CFE area, which may consist of zeros, except for a pid area at 0xff80 encoding the hardware id and a md5sum of the whole image at 0xffd0.
The patches applied correctly against svn trunk r25712.
