  • E10 password recovery process

    If you have an E10 and do not know the password the following process should allow you to recover the E10:

    1.Interrupt U-Boot.
    2.In U-Boot: Type printenv
    3. capture the information after the = on the bootargs line (in red below)
    4. at the prompt type set bootargs then past your capture text from above and add -s

    U-Boot> printenv
    Environment size: 281/131067 bytes
    U-Boot>
    bootargs=console=ttyS0,115200 root=/dev/mtdblock1 mtdparts=atmel_nand:16M(kernel)ro,120M(rootfs),-(other) rw rootfstype=jffs2
    bootdelay=3
    baudrate=115200
    ethaddr=00:1c:2c:ff:ff:ff
    autostart=yes
    ethact=macb0
    bootcmd=nboot 0x21000000 0 a0000
    stdin=serial
    stdout=serial
    stderr=serial
    Environment size: 281/131067 bytes
    3.Set it to single user mode:
    U-Boot> set bootargs console=ttyS0,115200 root=/dev/mtdblock1 mtdparts=atmel_nand:16M(kernel)ro,120M(rootfs),-(other) rw rootfstype=jffs2 -s
    4.Boot up with ‘boot’
    5.Linux should start, change the root password with ‘passwd’
    6.Reboot and log in with the new password
