I'd tried an ls on A: and Z: but no files found - just doing some work and will have another play in a bit :)

It looks like there is something funny with this one mate - I can't see any files on any drive letters other than the memory card D:

I'm guessing the user the executes the autoexec.ash doesn't have any permissions - on Z: all it can see is one 0 byte file:

Code:
f---- Nul  0 1980 00:00:00            0

I've done a dig around and see the following reference in the file:

E:\A7L_c6000a_g90_sdk

I looks like szdome are responsible for this one so I've asked them if they can help with a firmware file.

There must be files (they are "available" using romfs command) :p
Otherwise the cam wont boot. RFS contains strings, font and ui gfx.

Only those "param_xxx" files are Zero-files. Don't know whats the matter with them.

I was trying to use romfs save to get them off the camera but it looks like that command may be to save to the camera (and not the SD?)

Just playing :)

romfs usage is
Code:
Usage: ls - list ROMFS files
       inodes - list ROMFS inode tree
       load [name] [addr] - load data to memory
       save [slot] [name|all] [fpos]- save file to storage
       log_init [slot] - log the statistics of ROMFS initialized flag

I'd recommend to solder an uart converter to your pcb :p Otherwise you have to mess around with the ash script all the time :D

I forgot to mention this in the post before: There are no "users" available in the os. you can say you are always root and autoexec.ash gets executed as root as well.

Ah I got it!

Code:
romfs save logo.jpg d:/romfs

That saves the file into the romfs folder on the card :)

That confused me - I had that many commands I picked the wrong one!!

It should be:

Code:
romfs save d:/ start10.jpg

Got 95% of the files - just missing the A7L_high_iso folder now :)

I'm unsure what they do and why they are needed... But we can create thos 0kb files manually. Will look into it after lunch :D

Oops I didn't realise that was the time - I'm headed up to see the other half so that's a 2 hour drive!

Thanks for the help today as it looks like we've made some good progress with this one :)

Sounds like there is another firmware version out there which spytec has too - who knows we may get a full file from szdome too which we can compare :)

Well, I assembled errr...... something. Maybe we can call it G90 20140425 firmware. Maybe.
I had to guess a lot of values - I think they are the same for all A7 based devices.

Red marked values (date and length are from g90) have been taken from 0803 :D
g909dc1xklg2b.png


Also those exported files had a lot of extra data. I tried to realign them and to remove the unneeded leading and trailing junk. Now the structure looks like A7 partitions from other A7 dashcams. Then I created a flashable Firmware binary. It will Flash but I'm not sure if it will work. I reccomend to wait till I can compare it to a real G90 Firmware.

G90
I don't have any knowledge about firmware customization. I hope someone will place here helpful information regarding G90.
A month ago there was also avilable (I think, by uploader mistake) .elf file for this device. If you find this file interesting I can share it. Full file name is: amboot_hal_kernel_romfs_dsp_release.elf

That's absolutely brilliant thank-you - after all that you make it look so easy :D

Not sure how the firmware numbering works on these - like you I have r93MP and the version on the website is r4396.

I've not flashed it yet but had a look in the file and this r4396 is a few days newer:

r4396: Administrator@haitaobi Wed Apr 30 10:03:25 2014
r93MP: ykhe@ykhen Fri Apr 25 10:49:42 2014

If you could share the elf file that would be great please - I've managed to get the device into Ambarella dev mode - just hold the right button as you connect the device to your PC and then it will talk to DirectUSB which you can use with the elf file in case it gets corrupted :)

SZDome got back to me as well and they're going to share the latest file that they have so as soon as I have anything I'll put it up here :)

This r4396 firmware works great with A7Tool too - can't believe I just got that date from a hex editor and could just have loaded it into A7Tool - user error :D

OK that has flashed fine - the language is reset to Chinese on startup which is easy to change, the options appear the same - just grabbing a frame off now.

Startup logos change to the Blackview ones from the car otherwise everything else appears very similar but thank-you :)

Here you go: https://mega.co.nz/#!PRBRxD7C!xPFPKrk3yHQP4g9MA7gzCgylH-rJqTckDw7C8tG72ns
.zip file contains both .bin and .elf file. I think it is r4396 version (date 30.04.2014).

PS Thank you for checking the version r4396. I have to be careful, the G90 is the only dashcam I own right now and I don't think it will change any time soon :)
