Re: Linux Mint 18 Working on Chuwi Hi12 Tablet PC 64 Bit Cherry Trail Quad Core

@sergk , the developer replied on bugzilla with directions on creating the firmware file, so hopefully I can create it soon. If you're interested how to do it see: https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=156511#c30 Maybe you can use her directions here to create the firmware file: There are 3 s...

Re: Linux Mint 18 Working on Chuwi Hi12 Tablet PC 64 Bit Cherry Trail Quad Core

@sergk , for a working goodix_backport driver, my last working commit (before the developer changes related to Hi12 quirk and firmware file) is this one. It does not look for a firmware file: https://github.com/blocksonic/gt9xx/commit/160201b1c52db7d3a7cb2d048849feb0a9ba4f7b *note: when building re...

Re: Linux Mint 18 Working on Chuwi Hi12 Tablet PC 64 Bit Cherry Trail Quad Core

@sergk, this log is from which driver?... from building it from my github code (https://github.com/blocksonic/gt9xx)? That error " I2C communication failure: -121 " I also get as everyone does with the new code. I think it is because the firmware file is missing. I am waiting for the developer to re...

Re: Linux Mint 18 Working on Chuwi Hi12 Tablet PC 64 Bit Cherry Trail Quad Core

@sergk, also someone on the Chuwi forum posted this Windows config file. Do you know if this can be used to create a Linux firmware file for the goodix_backport module? Chuwi Hi12 goodix config for Windows: http://pastebin.com/ZathgeBe

The only working thing is wifi driver, so nothing new in that distro nevertheless so pathetic declarations for Hi...

Re: Please HELP me create a Live USB Mint 18 MATE with persistence [SOLVED]

Perhaps because it was only partially solved? FYI, I posted about a newly released custom Ubuntu 16.10 Beta2 (Kernel 4.8 based) ISO on the TechTablets forum. A Chuwi Hi10 user reported that WiFi and even Bluetooth is working from a Live-USB boot. He's having problem however getting it installed. So...

Btw, I don't want to needlessly complicate our debugging efforts but there is another custom Ubuntu 16.10 distro just released by a guy who has been focusing on Intel Compute sticks and most recently on improvements for Bay-Trail and Cherry-Trail devices in general.

Re: Linux Mint 18 Working on Chuwi Hi12 Tablet PC 64 Bit Cherry Trail Quad Core

your dmesg output shows this error which I think, is from not having the firmware file... Is there a "dump_config" entry in this version? https://github.com/blocksonic/gt9xx/raw/436b51b2a88413f0087c04398b2df5e536a910ce/goodix_backport.ko I'll try this version today.

@samel , if you want to try the earlier version that does not require the firmware file you can download it here: https://github.com/blocksonic/gt9xx/raw/436b51b2a88413f0087c04398b2df5e536a910ce/goodix_backport.ko This one I build some weeks ago on 4.8-rc5. @mauser_270 said earlier in this thread t...

Re: Linux Mint 18 Working on Chuwi Hi12 Tablet PC 64 Bit Cherry Trail Quad Core

@samel, I will find out. I sent that config file to the developer responsible for the Goodix touchscreen Linux driver. I asked her if this can be used to create the firmware file. I'll wait for her response. By the way, we could use more testers who have a Hi12 if you're interested to try Linux (Ub...

Re: Linux Mint 18 Working on Chuwi Hi12 Tablet PC 64 Bit Cherry Trail Quad Core

Do you think the format of this config file is the same for Windows and Linux? Is it the same for Android and Windows? ... so I can generate the Linux firmware file from this Windows config file?

@samel, Guys on that Chuwi forum thread for the Hi12 claim that that config file I posted above works well. So maybe I will try to create a firmware file using that and see how it works. http://forum.chuwi.com/thread-1238-1-1.html

Re: Linux Mint 18 Working on Chuwi Hi12 Tablet PC 64 Bit Cherry Trail Quad Core

@mauser_270 , I rebuilt the goodix touchscreen driver with the developer's recent changes which have Chuwi Hi12 specific changes in it. Basically it requires loading a firmware file during init/configuration. You can pull the new driver code and build it from my Github repo as normal/before. https:...
