Hello all, 

my trusty gta04/qtmoko has given up a few weeks ago (probably 
the content of the sdcard corrupted). I tried to reinstall using 
instructions found here: 

DEV=/dev/sdd ./makesd qtmoko 

failed first due to a download failure, fixed by s/letux/gta04/ 
on one line in the script makesd: 

- qtmoko ) P="http://download.goldelico.com/letux-qtmoko/$VARIANT.tbz" ;; 
+ qtmoko ) P="http://download.goldelico.com/gta04-qtmoko/$VARIANT.tbz" ;; 

There seems to be another error later fixed by calling the 
script differently 

- DEV=/dev/sdd ./makesd -f ext4 -r qtmoko -d all -k latest 
+ DEV=/dev/sdd ./makesd -f ext4 -r qtmoko -d latest -k latest 

This downloads everything needed and unpacks the system onto 

HOWEVER, this results in an unbootable system. The screen turns 
black after the u-boot boot loader (white screen and green LED) 
and does not change for at least 15 Minutes. 

So, the question is: what else to look for? Could it be that 
there is a bootloader update needed or something such? Or a 
u-boot script file??? 

I can provide an install log, if that helps. 


Hi, maybe the sourceforge image and README will work for you:


 Best regards
