Updating Crucial MX100 Firmware with Ubuntu

There has been a Firmware update for the Crucial MX100 to MU02. In case you are running Ubuntu there is an easy way to perform the update without using a CD or USB Stick.

As the firmware comes in form of an iso image containing Tiny Core Linux, we can instruct grub2 to directly boot from it. Here is how:

  1. append the following to /etc/grub.d/40_custom:
    menuentry "MX100 FW Update" {
     set isofile="/home/<USERNAME>/Downloads/MX100_MU02_BOOTABLE_ALL_CAP.iso"
     # assuming your home is on /dev/sda3 ATTENTION: change this so it matches your setup
     loopback loop (hd0,msdos3)$isofile
     linux (loop)/boot/vmlinuz libata.allow_tpm=1 quiet base loglevel=3 waitusb=10 superuser rssd-fw-update rssd-fwdir=/opt/firmware rssd-model=MX100
     initrd (loop)/boot/core.gz
    }

    read this for details of the file format.

  2. run sudo update-grub
  3. reboot and select “MX100 FW Update”
  4. Now you can delete the menuentry created in step1

Note that this actually much “cleaner” than using windows where you have to download 150MB of the Crucial Store Executive Software which actually is a local webserver written in Java (urgh!). But all it can do is display some SMART monitoring information and automatically perform the above steps on windows.

Needed to make a Company Presentation recently so thought I would add it here.

nuu1For any enjoyable, personal relationship partners should participate in as many intimacy tricks and tips as possible. However they need to “keep it real” as well.

1. Sex Ideas: Be open, discover and enjoy yourself with as many brand new sex ideas that you can encounter. A lot of people or partners lose out on elevated enjoyment and intimate exhilaration by not figuring out how to be a much better lover. If you’re in a partnership, try to get your own lover to discover exciting and new methods. When the other is simply too anxious or reluctant (which often is the situation!) then just do it and begin understanding completely new techniques yourself. This may intimately persuade your lover into getting more intimate with her or himself!

2. Adult Sex Toys: They are a terrific way to throw open your search for brand new tips, methods and technique. It is a fantastic “ice breaker” for getting things going directly into that realm of personal exploration. It does not need to be anything excessive either; a great adult toy can just be a particular sensual oil or cream. Then after that you can enter in the edible department. It just takes venturing out, and then the real games will start!

3. “Keeping it Genuine”. Sex ideas and toys are wonderful and will add gigantic amounts of enjoyment to relationships, however remember to ”keep it real” and never allow these types of toys or approaches to take hold as being the heart of your relationship. That is, rely on them as assists for variety and elevated enjoyment. Avoid using them as centerpieces in which you need to rely on them exclusively for intimacy to occur.

EDIT: Two things: IANAL. I'm not stating there is a violation here. You can look at what's linked to yourself - it worries me that the scripts I know to be central to building a mediatek kernel comes with strange headers as well. Not all that's grep'able here is used in kernel. Second, this is my own personal opinion and blog, not that of my employer.

If you want to get your Xbox One/ Xbox 360 running on ubuntu you basically have the choice between the in-kernel xpad driver and the userspace xboxdrv driver.

Most of the guides recommend using xboxdrv as xpad has been stagnating. However using xboxdrv has some disadvantages; as it runs as a daemon in userspace you have to manually take care of starting/ stopping it and giving your user access to the virtual devices it creates.
Xpad on the other hand just works as any other linux driver directly inside the kernel which is more  efficient and hassle free.

Fortunately while pushing SteamOS Valve has updated the xpad driver bringing it on par with xboxdrv:

  • they added support for Xbox One Controller
  • they fixed the communication protocol – no more blinking controller light

You can get the improved SteamOS driver from this PPA. Just install the steamos-xpad-dkms package and everything should just work.

Summary of topics (ordered by discussion):

  • Election system
  • eV: bank account
  • maemo trademarks

Topic (Election system):

  • MentalistTraceur hasn't looked into the PHP code for elections, yet.
  • juiceme is looking into change in authentication required for personal voting links to work.
  • juiceme: sending mail to just GA is possible with a bit of tweaking. For now, it could be a specific user table containing just the current GA members, to be used as input for the voting engine.
    In the future, a flag in the midgard_users table, to indicate whether the user is GA member or not, would be preferable...
    Chemist will ask merlin1991 (garage admin) about the group options in garage for the MCeV.
  • The modifications can be seen at:
    svn diff https://toosa.swagman.org/svn/maemo_elections@r3 https://toosa.swagman.org/svn/maemo_elections@r4
    Now keep in mind that juiceme *has* *not* *tested* *this* at all, he just wrote it like it *should* work
  • According to BGB (German, English), the only minimum is 1 EU-director.
    According to Bylaws, there should be at least 3 EU-directors (at least 21 years of age, EU residents or citizens).

Topic (eV: bank account):

  • Chemist needs a slot in his schedule free where the bank has actual working hours... the accountant was busy with being off work for all occasions chemist could free up so far - after that we have a bank account for MCeV (Thursday or next week).
  • About donations: MCeV will accept bitcoin as soon as we get it sorted! ;-)
  • We need to pester the US members of Hildon Foundation to do the tax declaration, Win7Mac has had several attempts with no response...
  • Complete history of transactions (donations and expenses) from past to present would be nice...

Topic (maemo trademarks):

  • Maemo Council will publish the announcement about Maemo trademarks registration-renewal on TMO, after chemist is back with a bank account number.
    The announcement will likely be published in the same way as meeting minutes are: at maemo.org, at talk.maemo.org, and at maemo-community mailing list.

Action Items:
  • -- old items:
    • The selected Code of Conduct (KDE) still needs to be published on (T)MO.
    • Looking into automatic calculation of election results ...
    • Addition of personal voting link into email template in the DB of election system...
    • Contacting freemangordon and merlin1991 about auto-builder: CSSU-thumb target, GCC versions?
    • Contacting X-Fade, as well as Freenode staff directly, about the GC.
    • Getting maemo trademark registration (everywhere?) renewed (and transferred to MCeV) by the end of February (or within six months since expiry date).
    • archiving Ovi/Nokia store, especially for Harmattan.

The build-in opencv line drawing function allows to draw a variety of lines. Unfortunately it does not allow drawing a gradient line interpolating the colors at its start and end.

However implementing this on our own is quite easy:


using namespace cv;

void line2(Mat& img, const Point& start, const Point& end, 
                     const Scalar& c1,   const Scalar& c2) {
    LineIterator iter(img, start, end, LINE_8);

    for (int i = 0; i < iter.count; i++, iter++) {
       double alpha = double(i) / iter.count;
       // note: using img.at<T>(iter.pos()) is faster, but 
       // then you have to deal with mat type and channel number yourself
       img(Rect(iter.pos(), Size(1, 1))) = c1 * (1.0 - alpha) + c2 * alpha;
    }
}
