Krescue - take full control of your VIM device!

im sure its not true !!

show me any router with same powerfull hardware - 4xCPU + DDR4 2G ram + 16G EMMC + IR/RC + pcie + M2 + 40Gios + 1xUSB3 + 2xUSB2 + …

i can make from this hardware media server or router
which have better performance - compare with 200$up routers

PS: Have a nice new year too

Hi, hyphop!
Great work with krescue! I’m new to SBC, and your tool gives more confidence I won’t break everything while testing different ROMs.
Are there any plans to improve KBI support in future versions? Especially the trigger part? I noticed there are some issues with switching WOL on different ROMs, also turning on dcin trigger might be very useful.

yes i will try to do soon ! ( WOL and some other triggers )

Time to bed now :crazy_face:

man, I’m not going to convince you :slight_smile:, you can’t believe me, BUT what you propose to do with Khados Vim3L + Openwrt (remote storage), I can do it with a simple router (definitely worse performance) + openwrt (and this is more convenient since because router is always on) :slight_smile: and I don’t need IR / RC + pcie + M2 + 40Gios (for Khados I bought a 512 GB SSD drive, but your engineers didn’t allow me to install it without buying an additional device at the price of +20 $ :rofl:, although they could simply increase the case by 6 mm).

ohh man… I don’t know what you’re talking (don’t just install the OS… for example CoreElec, but try to configure it … install torrent services :joy: and use it for at least a few days and you will understand that the characteristics that you admire are not visually noticed :)… it will slow down with any remote control :)) the more so when compared with the android box 5 years ago :), the only difference is that the new processor heats up less)… or you have little choice or you look at the world through the eyes of a seller, but not a buyer (for 200 $ it makes no sense to buy a device on an arm processor :slight_smile:. And where does the 200 $, why not 100 $ or 300 $?!? However, it doesn’t matter, initially it was about software support, and not about the technical characteristics of the device) :slight_smile:.
I did not want to clog this thread with answers (but it would be impolite to leave unanswered), so I apologize (I will no longer distract from the discussion) :). I have a festive mood :), I wish you all good luck and success in the new year!

Hello.
I have a vim2 with nougat and a tone board vim.
I would like to use volumio to make the most of the tone board.
possible to keep nougat on vim2?
I am neither a programmer nor the like, I have a computer in dualboot, wind 10 and ubuntu 18.04 lts.
krescrue is very new to me, the video is good, but with the translation, it’s not always good.
I’ve been watching the video ten times, but it’s not all clear.
thanks for the help

its very easy !!! one of simple ways is !

  1. write Krescue to SD (u can use windows or linux for write image to SD )
  2. boot krescue from SD
  3. check ethernet connection on VIM board
  4. write any OS images by online

PS: krescue install all OS into EMMC

I haven’t used Krescue with Ubuntu
I have been flashing Android and CoreELEC.

BUT

When Krescue finishes I Do Not Pull Out SD Card and Reboot.

I choose Power OFF.

Then i pull out SD Card after it has Powered Down.

Then i Power on the Device.

oh sorry, hehe am new to everything and i love the experience.

ok here we go sir.

at first I use Khadas VIM3pro and have downloaded Krescue to my SD as instructed. worked flawlessly.

then i downloaded https://dl.khadas.com/Firmware/Krescue/images/VIMx.Ubuntu-xfce-bionic_Linux-4.9_arm64_V20191231.emmc.kresq
and i put it in my SD download folder in the SD dump storage.

I insert the the SD and boot to MaskROM mode
I boot in to Krescue and choose number 2 : image WRITE to > EMMC
takes about 1 min 30 seconds. awesome.

than I poweroff remove SD. boot the Khads VIM3 Pro. now all i see is blackscreen for so long and the device is flashing 3 white led light continuesly . just keeps doing like that and my monitor doesnt turn on.

I use my PC as source power and my pc is high end. and am sure its not usb-c power because i aslo tried powersource from wall adapter.

but when i try other images like Android or EmuElec or COREELEC. all work flawless.
but not ubuntu image. i didt try other version yet. i just tried V20191231 ubuntu,
I also tried flashing my EMMC using
USB_Burning_Tool v2.x.x but it stops at 46% and this error pop up
UBOOT/Partition rootfs/Download buffer/Data tranfer error

Thank you in Advance for your hard work its amazingly helpful! all I want now is ubuntu!! to rock my world on my KHADS SBM!

Help Appreciated

Any update on an EDGE-V version of Krescue?

@hyphop

hello.

I managed to use krescue and installed volumio, to test.
i tried lakka too.
it’s really good, there is no risk to emmc by force.

as requested.
@microdude

for edge v, that would be fine.
