Raidsonic ICY-Box 62x0

This box is a cheap (in germany) kirkwood based nas which can used as hardware for IPFire. But you need to add a serial console.

  • 3x USB 2.0 HiSpeed

u-boot

The icy-box has a outdated u-boot as bootloader. You need to flash an up to date version. (IPFire image ship a working image in /usr/share/u-boot)

After flashing you need to add a basic config environment:

boot_dev=ide
boot_part=0:1
bootcmd=${boot_dev} reset; fatload ${boot_dev} ${boot_part} 0x8000000 boot.scr; source 0x8000000;
bootdelay=3
console=console=ttyS0,115200 earlyprintk
fdt_addr_r=0x6300000
fdtfile=kirkwood-ib62x0.dtb
kernel_addr_r=0x6400000
ramdisk_addr_r=0x6900000
root_dev=/dev/sda3
soc=kirkwood
