Preparing IDB failed

This happens at upgrading bootloader, if you need to upgrade the bootloader or the update.img contains a new bootloader, you probably will meet this. The marsboard is 'bricked'. Follow this unbrick instructions to unbrick it.

Linux

Rockchip has provided tools for upgrading within Linux (closed source) since Android 4.4. The initial RE work of the Rockchip bootloader updating protocol is by naobsd and has been improved by some in rkflashtool. linuxerwang has made a GUI version of the rkflashtool called rkflashkit.

Warning: both rkflashtool and rkflashkit can not flash the update.img.

Using Linux Upgrade Tool to flash update.img

Download the Rockchip linux upgrade tool here. Unzip it and you will get a file called upgrade_tool which is a binary executable file under Linux.

Flash update.img

Maclastevil

Let the board go to recovery mode and run the following command to flash the update.img:

Lowlevel Format nand

If you have an error with upgrading you can low level format the nand flash first with the following command:

Flash parameter

Flash bootloader

Flash the boot.img

Flash the kernel.img

Others

There are other commands in the upgrade_tool, such as:

Installing RkFlashKit

In order to install RkFlashKit in Debian or Ubuntu, you need to get the source code, build it,You can download the pre-built rkflashkit here or build it yourself with the following command:

And install it with the following command

Flashing firmware with RkFlashKit

Run it with the following command

The tool is similar to RkAndroidTool as it can burn partition images to specific partitions. You’ll need to enter recovery mode just like you would do in Windows, by pressing the recovery button, before powering the device via the USB port, and connect the USB cable to your PC. RkFlashKit should automatically find your device, so you just have to select the correct NAND partition, select the image file to flash, and click on Flash image.

  1. Click the Nand partition and you will see the partitions of the board listed then choose the one you want to flash.
  2. Choose the location of the image you want to flash to that partition.
  3. Click the 'Flash image' button and it will start flashing
  4. After it's finished click 'Reboot Device' button to reboot the board.

Flash RKBatchTool Firmware File with RkFlashKit

the firmware updates are often distributed using RKBatchTool file format, which can not be directly handled by RkFlashKit. Luckily, there are some other tools available to extract the partitions file from such firmware.

You’ll first need to build rk-tools:

Then use img_unpack tools to unpack the firmware to another format:

Finally, run afptool to extract the files from the resulting file into “firmware” directory:

./afptool -unpack update_mk908_106j2107_04_unpack.img firmwareCheck file...OK

UNPACK -------

Now that we’ve got our partition files, simply use RkFlashKit as mentioned above.
