Thank you so much Taoworm23!  This is sooo informative and I'm learning a lot here.  I noticed you mentioned that the ingredient that is of interest here to plasticize is the paraffin oil. Do you think plain paraffin oil would work like the ones they use for medical use for physical therapy in humans? 

I'm just thinking it would be less toxic since I worry about the heptane in Gibbs since it's neurotoxic.  Your thoughts?

Thanks again.

Ok I have some facts about pleos skin...please make note of it.

Pleos skin was made by GLS using the Dynaflex™ Thermoplastic Elastomer brand process contains a block structure of Styrene-Ethylene/Butylene-Styrene (SEBS).

A company named APEX worked with UGOBE Inc and JETTA on the paint project for the PLEO dinosaur skin which is made of elastomeric paint.

Gibbs contains no silicones ( Teflons or otherwise)
The three main components in Gibbs are:
iso-propanol (an alcohol)
heptane (a hydrocarbon solvent)
petroleum distillates (CAS no.64742-54-7, which is a paraffin) a heavy solvent refined paraffinic (read waxy oil).

(The abnormally highly refined paraffin oil in Gibbs is used as the extender oil to replace the plasticizing oil in Pleos skin)

My Blue Pleo has recently developed a handful of issues and I was looking for some opinions on what may be wrong. He basically can't read any foods now, I have to feed him with ChangeRB, and even then he has a hard time reading the item that he has to hold in his mouth to eat. He also has a bad speaker, when he turns his head to the right it goes quiet, and is sometimes very crackly. He has also recently started only booting intermittingly, after a few resets he's booted a few days in a row, but no idea if it'll happen soon again or not. Would this be something internal I could open him up and look for or is it a software thing, or both?

Hi Un,


I have used a 2Gb SD card without problems on my Ugobe. I'm not sure if I used it on version 1.0


Cheers!

Hi Un,


Is it possible that the POP script did not work/finish correctly?  Would it be worth it to try to run it again?


Did you get a chance to look at the multicolored neck wiring harness?


Cheers,


Peter

This collection of messages is concerning:

Code: [Select]
WARN: vm: No main function found. Will stop trying.
WARN: drive: no function with the name of emotion_eval: File or function is not found
INFO: high: application: No App loaded.

WARN: vm: No main function found. Will stop trying.

I think maybe dino is rebooting because their is no app and the watchdog resets it. I have him powered off a lab supply and I know the current and voltage are stable.

I am using the SD card images and a 2GB SD card. Maybe its still to big for a 2008 embedded controller? I just formatted the SD as FAT and pasted the files onto the drive. Anything else I am suppose to do?

Until I solve the boot loop issue I can not access him via the USB port.

Hi Um,


I was re-reading your initial post and I may really have a good clue!  If this Pleo had damage to the neck vertebrae, it is quite possible that the data lines going to the head cpu got damaged (pinched chaffed or cut).


They are quite small (like 26AWI) and suffer from crosstalk and EMI problems due to their length and the EMI noise from the pleo servos.  If one or more of them is compromised, it may corrupt the data being sent to and from the head cpu during upgrade and or boot.


The wire harness has a choke mounted around it to help prevent noise but I have seen some chokes cracked due to rough handling of the Pleo.


Just another of my wild ideas!


Cheers!

Hi Un,


Here is a schematic from Xu Peng of the input power board on the bottom of the Ugobe Pleo (the board with the on-off switch).


If you were still looking at power issues.





Cheers!

Hi Un,


I was going to try and sound like I understood any of your post..


Sorry, I'm like a dog looking at fire at this point, its very interesting, but I've got no clue really.


If I was forced to make an opinion, humph, I'm still of a mind that your OS is corrupted and that an install of 1.0.2 via usb "LifeOS 1.0.2 update TWEAKED (via Windows USB)" available on the forum is your best bet.


I'm not sure that the stats power is telling you the whole story about the condition of your battery.  Did you run the update with this battery?  I might even try to run the update with the power supply IMHO.


I have about a 25 percent success rate so take that with for what its worth!


Cheers!


Peter

I was still not able to do the V1.0.1 upgrade from POP but had an idea. I took the POP script and replaced the img files with the ones from v1.0 and they installed. I then was able to install v1.0.1 normally with the images written to all three controllers.

I now get a full boot but I still am stuck in a boot loop. The warning messages make me think I have a PLL chip or something not running at the correct frequency or something. I also don't get the missing files messages as the upgrade worked.

Hi,


I would now try to install an "normal" os.  The POP (Point of Purchase) is not a full OS.  It was used as a demo in stores or given to users who had bricked their ugobes.  You can install OS via usb or sd card.  The usb versions are on the forum as well.


There is a large (3 page) discussion) about the upgrade/downgrade process as well.


Cheers!


Peter
