userHead LattePanda 2019-04-24 10:14:28 95234 Views61 Replies
Recently we've received a lot of feedback from users that alpha's power-on function is very much needed in their project, so we decide to release a Beta version first.
Since this Beta version is not perfect at present, if you have any questions, please reply to the post.

PLEASE NOTE:
Although in our tests, there is no failure to boot after reflashing the BIOS, please back up your files in advance, and do not remove the power supply during the reflashing process, so as to avoid serious consequences.



How to set your Alpha auto power on?

Download Alpha BIOS file with Auto-power-on feature.

Alpha m3-8100y KR310: https://www.dropbox.com/s/dgk7u2rw7qq1g ... n.zip?dl=0

NOTE: Please choose the right BIOS file according to your LattePanda Model(pls check the CPU model and S/N number).


A.First Reflash.
1.Format your USB disk to FAT32 and change the drive name to "WINPE"
2.Copy the right BIOS files directly to root of the USB flash disk
3.Plug the U-disk in USB host
4.Plugin the power cable and boot up the system
5.Press “ESC” and go into the BIOS setting page
6.Select the item “UEFI: Built-in EFI Shell” in Boot Override and press “Enter” 1.jpg 1.jpg (58.22 KiB) Viewed 32848 times 7.Wait few seconds until the page show “Shell>” 2.jpg 2.jpg (58.49 KiB) Viewed 32848 times 8.Input “fsX:” then press “Enter” (X could be 1,2,3…)
9.Input “dir” then press “Enter” to check the file in the disk.

(Explanation of some DOS commands:
cd: the cd command either displays or changes the current working directory;
dir: The dir command displays the contents of a directory’
You can find more commands in Wikipedia, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_DOS_commands) 3.jpg 3.jpg (53.85 KiB) Viewed 32848 times 10.Input “Fpt –f xxx.bin” then press “Enter” (You can use “Tab” to fast choose the bios file) 4.jpg 4.jpg (50.58 KiB) Viewed 32848 times 11.Wait the refreshing of the BIOS automatically until returning “ fsX:>” 5.jpg 5.jpg (66.94 KiB) Viewed 32848 times 12.Restart the system via pressing "Ctrl+Alt+Del".
(Please be sure to restart the system before your second reflash)

B.Second Reflash
1.Press “ESC” and go into the BIOS setting page, do Same procedure as the “First Reflash”.
2.Please use the code “ /u XXX“to start the installation “ eFuitX64.efi”, then press “Enter”. (You can use “Tab” to fast choose the bios file) 6.jpg 6.jpg (57.36 KiB) Viewed 32848 times 3.Wait the refreshing of the BIOS automatically until returning “ fsX:>”. 7.jpg 7.jpg (50.04 KiB) Viewed 32848 times 4.Remove the U-disk and unplug the power cord.(PLEASE be sure to power off the system)

Now you Alpha can wake when there is power connected to it.

We're attempting the process using the proper file, for the Alpha m3-7y30 LattePanda.

After getting into the USB stick and running either "fpt -f S70......bin" OR "eFuitX64.efi/u S70KB310A-auto-poweron.bin /p /b /n", I get "Error reported: Invalid parameter" Any thoughts? Thank you

I don't have access to dropbox due to security reasons. Are you able to provide this as a download elsewhere? Or maybe we can speak over email. Thank you

Is the process the same as the above or is there a different step.
Also does this work with the USB-C board power or just from the 12v dc board input?

This is critical to the success of my project any help appreciated.
The update process of KR310 version is same as older versions.
the auto-power-on file works with both USB-C board power and the 12v dc board power input.
In the instruction in this ReadMe file is different, where in the folder of KR310 just have one .bin file and gives error when you run first command

Code: Select all

eFuitX64,efi S70KB310A-auto-poweron.bin /p /b /n Error: unrecognize parameter /p . Aborting. There is open issue on Github for this problem, thanks in advance for help here.

2021-10-13 13:47:00 I'm trying to get the auto power-on BIOS working with a Lattepanda Alpha m3-7y30 (KR200). I've done the process successfully on multiple KR300 and KR310 models but this is my first attempt with a KR200.

The Lattepanda only auto-boots if it's turned off and turned back on relatively quickly. If it's off for a minute or so and then I apply power, the red LED pulses for awhile before going solid but the blue LED only blinks once every few seconds. If I remove power and apply it again after a few seconds the blue LED becomes solid and the Lattepanda boots.

How can I get it to boot when power is applied after it has been off for awhile?

I used the files on the Github in the Alpha m3-7y30/Alpha Auto-power-on BIOS.zip folder.

2021-08-27 07:51:49 Hi, which Bin file did you use? could you pls make a short video of the whole process and send it to techsupport@lattepanda.com? We suspect you may use wrong bin file on your LattePanda. userHeadPic LattePanda
2021-08-23 13:11:39 Hi thank you for the quick response.

2021-08-20 02:16:27 Hi sir, which Alpha version and files did you use? do you keep the error screenshot? we can help check it. userHeadPic LattePanda
2021-08-19 19:46:24 Has anyone run into the issue where the ITE Flash Utility says "Your bin file is bigger that chip eflash size, Please check again!"?

I have not been able to get past this issue and my company's production is dependent on these lattepandas.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

2021-06-09 14:45:11 Today i got a power outage. When the power is back the lattepanda didn't turn on as expected: even Wake-on-Lan doesn't work. Any clue? userHeadPic gabemorgath

2021-02-04 14:10:40 Thank you for this tutorial! However I have a question about its use. I would like to know if it is possible to apply the auto power on update with the BIOS update to accept USB 3.0 ?
To know if it is possible to cumulate power on in the BIOS and an update of the BIOS which allows to accept 3.0 protocols for USB.

Thanks

2021-01-18 11:03:21 As this board is intended and marketed for makers/tinkerers,
it will be very helpful if you can provide a tutorial on how to recover a bricked board with "Wrong EC file issue should be fixed by the professional tool in our factory." issue that you send me in your email.

it will save time and money...

Also it would be very helpful if you can provide the power on circuit schematics.
Or some critical test points so we can check that the power on circuit is working properly!

thanks

2021-01-17 00:30:14 Please provide the original bios for the Alpha m3-8100y (the one without auto power on enabled) that we can use with the Hardware Programmer.
The "Default Bios" CDJQ-BS-7-S70KR310-KF65A-101-I.zip is not working for me.
After and unsuccessful attempt to flash the BIOS from theUEFI Shell
and after flashing the CDJQ-BS-7-S70KR310-KF65A-101-I.bin i can only see a blue light blinking every 5 sec and the power button does nothing!

So i want to try the Non auto power on BIOS.
Thanks
