iOmega iConnect

Hello everyone,

I've installed ARMedslack onto one of these now.
http://go.iomega.com/en/products/network-storage-desktop/wireless-data-station/network-hard-drive-iconnect/

Specification
  • Desktop, compact form factor
  • Marvell 6281 CPU at 1.0GHz with 256MB RAM
  • 1 x RJ45 10/100/1000Mbps (GbE) Ethernet port
    LAN standards: IEEE 802.3, IEEE 802.3u
  • Wireless (802.11b/g/n)
  • 4 x USB 2.0 ports (to connect external HDD, printers)
  • AC Voltage 100-240 VAC
  • Power consumption – 5 Watts
  • Documentation localized for 18 languages, including; English, German, Spanish, French, Italian, Brazilian Portuguese, Chinese Simplified, and Russian
It doesn't mention the onboard flash memory there, but it also has 512MB of flash built in.

It's a Marvell Orion board inside, complete with the header for a TTL to USB serial console.
The console can be rigged like this http://doip.org/iconnect_console

I've recompiled the kernel to include the following options: (Could these be added into the standard ARMedslack kernel config please ?)
> CONFIG_RT2800PCI=m
> CONFIG_RT2800PCI_RT33XX=y
> CONFIG_RT2800PCI_RT35XX=y

However it probably only requires the first of them. This has made the onboard Ralink wireless adapter available.

I'm trying to hack the mapower architecture code changes into the kernel code to get the pretty LEDs working, but have had varying degrees of success with that so far, I think I've got the code in and working, however I've yet to figure out how to control the LEDs. So I'm hacking away at the default (flash) image (debian 5) to try and figure out how they've done it. It looks like they're controlling it with a closed source binary atm.

The Sheeva Plug install instructions work for the install.

Anyway, other than that it works well, and it's a cheap device :-)

Thanks
Dave

Re: iOmega iConnect

Dave, this is great work. You've inspired me to purchase one of these.

Re: iOmega iConnect

I was right about the kernel code for making the leds work, I have managed to get it working. It creates an object for each led in /sys/class/leds and each led contains a brightness object which can be manipulated to change turn the leds on and off... now I just have to work out how to automate that with udev. The same code also includes the objects for the onboard button, but I'll be buggered if I know where to start with that one yet. I can see it has been found and that the interrupts are being detected when it's pressed though :-)

I'll knock up a page with some information / downloadable files and put up for this, once I've moved this all forward a bit.

Thanks
Dave
