Re: setting up the MK802 II

I replaced the kernel with a more updated one. I used the kernel from Patwood, 3.4.67 I believe.

Then on boot I insmod module squashfs.ko or else tinycore extensions will not load correctly.

Could anyone give a step by step procedures on these.

- how to replace TC's kernel with Patwood's 3.4.79
- better way to enable wifi of MK802ii

My MK802ii already managed to boot with Tiny Core 5.4 (dCore Arm V7hf) on SD card.

Now on my PC, I inserted the SD card and run the following commands:

$ mount /mnt/mmcblk0p1 (sd card)
$ cd /tmp
$ wget newbielink:http://dl.cubieforums.com/files/patwood/A10-kernel-3.4.79.tar.gz [nonactive]
$ tar xf A10-kernel-3.4.79.tar.gz -C /mnt/mmcblk0p1
$ umount /mnt/mmcblk0p1

Then on my MK802ii, I inserted the SD card and it didn't boot.

Please help, I am just new on Linux.

The uImage file is the kernel, usually it is a matter of just replacing this file.
If you too have 8188eu as wifi module you will need to upgrade the kernel as 3.0.42 does not seem to support it.
