RIFF Box JTAG Manager v1.68, RIFF Box firmware v1.44 released

JTAG Manager 1.68
—————————
– Added option “Forced eMMC Samsung Mode” to the “Write CID Register” operation, so the Samsung eMMC chips with not valid Manufacturer ID field (the valid one is 0x15) could be processed.

Firmware 1.44
—————————
– Fixed Hynix (and possibly other non-Samsung eMMC chips) bug which caused erase of chip contents during init stage (“Check eMMC/SD Card” button);
– Changed eMMC autodetection algo for Samsung chips. Now a simple check of Manufacturer ID is used (note, the Samsung eMMC’s Manufacturer ID = 0x15)
Please note, currently is supported eMMC CID Register Write operation for Samsung chips. Thus, for Samsung eMMC it is possible to change Manufacturer ID byte.
In case Manufacturer ID is not equal 0x15, all extended Samsung eMMC’s functionality will be disabled (Write CID,CSD, Read/Write eMMC firmware, etc).
To enable it, use “Write CID Register” operation with the forced Samsung Mode checkbox checked to write the 0x15 value back to the Manufacturer ID field.

RIFF JTAG Manager v1.67, RIFF Box Firmware v1.43

JTAG Manager 1.67
—————————
– Fixed bug (which is related to RIFFBOX2 only), which caused box connection error, after this operation: “Setting new JTAG/eMMC License to the RIFFBOX.”

RIFF Box Firmware v1.43
—————————

– Fixed bug related to RIFF Box v1 eMMC detection
– Fixed bug related to RIFF Box v2 USB 2.0 ports enumeration

New RIFF Box v2 drivers:
—————————-
– Drivers from year 2014 (x86 and x64)

Instructions for users with V2 box and “Device cannot start, error code 10” problem:

Method 1:
– Disconnect RIFF Box v2 from USB port
– Open box housing and take PCB out
– Connect TP1 to TP2 using tweezers,
– Connect USB cable to Box and PC
– Disconnect TP-s
– Launch JTAG Manager (any version from 1.65 and up)
– Perform Firmware Update as requested

After You connect TP-s and USB cable, box will enumerate in bootloader mode. RIFF Update Port driver is required (like allways during firmware update) and Recovery firmware will be flashed.
After this, normal Firmware Update procedure will follow and You can use RIFF Box on any USB port (2.0 or 3.0).

Method 2:

– Find working USB 3.0 port (By working means that LPCDevice driver works)
– Update box to V1.43 firmware
.

RIFF JTAG Manager v1.66, RIFF II Firmware v1.42 (10x faster)

Hello,
Please read this carefully if You are RIFF Box v2 user:RIFF JTAG Manager 1.66
—————————
– RIFFBOX2 support for new connection mode is added (for new Drivers)
– Due to new drivers Read/Write speeds via eMMC interface increased 10 times and more
– Read/Write speed is now shown in MB/s
– Firmware Update process adjusted for slow networks (Indonesia, Bangladesh, India . . .)


RIFF Box Firmware v1.42

—————————
– RIFFBOX connection mode is optimized for better speed, it is no more the CDC.
The data transfer speeds are increased more than 10 times.
– Fixed bug in handling the erroneous situations during eMMC data read operations.

RIFF Box v2 users:

1. Download new files from server (JTAG Manager and “New Drivers”)
2. Click “Firmware Update” and wait for process to be finished,
(Update port driver remains old ! ! !)
3. Install new drivers from “New Driver” folder in JTAG Manager install dir.

New driver, together with new firmware will dramatically increase performances with eMMC chips and SD cards.
Theoretical speed is up to 18MB/s using 4bit bus width.
In practice it can depend on eMMC chip model but even for oldest chips it’s near 10MB/s.

RIFF Box v1 users don’t need to install new driver, as it cannot be implemented for old hardware for now.
