Rockusb (Rockchip USB protocol)
=====================================================

Overview
--------

Rockusb protocol is widely used by Rockchip SoC based devices. It can
read/write info, image to/from devices. This document briefly describes how to
use Rockusb for upgrading firmware (e.g. kernel, u-boot, rootfs, etc.).

Tools
--------
There are many tools can support Rockusb protocol. rkdeveloptool
(https://github.com/rockchip-linux/rkdeveloptool) is open source,
It is maintained by Rockchip. People don't want to build from source
can download from here
(https://github.com/rockchip-linux/rkbin/blob/master/tools/rkdeveloptool)

Usage
--------
The Usage of Rockusb command is:

rockusb <USB_controller> <devtype> <dev[:part]>

e.g. rockusb 0 mmc 0

On your U-Boot console, type this command to enter rockusb mode.
On your host PC. use lsusb command. you should see a usb device
using 0x2207 as its USB verdor id.

for more detail about the rkdeveloptool. please read the usage.

rkdeveloptool -h

use rkdeveloptool wl command to write lba. BeginSec is the lba on device
you want to write.
