Creating RACHEL-Plus from CAP 2.0 on Windows

This process only works for RACHEL-Plus 2.0, model WAPD-235N on the back of the device

Download the latest image file. http://rachelfriends.org/downloads/public_ftp/other/CAP2_RACHEL_Recovery_USB_2.3.0.img.zip

Unzip the file

Burn the image file to a 16GB or larger USB flash drive using free ‘imageUSB’ software.

Edit a file named ‘update.sh’ on the newly burned flash drive. On ~line 38, change the METHOD variable from 1 to 3. Be sure to save.

Plug the USB drive into the back of the Intel CAP and power on.

Imaging process should begin and take about 8 minutes. Confirm the little blue light stays lite during the process. Slow flashing of the 3 waving lights.

It will be blank and the 3 waves will be solid once complete.

Power off the unit by holding the button for 3 seconds, remove the USB, add Internet connectivity, and turn the device back on.

Find the IP Address of your CAP to SSH into the device. Default username / password (root / 123lkj):

Install the screen software package:

Create screen permissions (see a video of screen):

Copy and paste the entire the following command:

wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/rachelproject/rachelplus/master/cap-rachel-configure.sh
-O /root/cap-rachel-configure.sh; chmod +x /root/cap-rachel-configure.sh; /root/cap-rachel-configure.sh -b full

Wait…wait…wait… A device could take a few days to create. It’s about 400GB of content in millions of files

I downloaded the latest image file, burned it to a USB flash drive, opened the update.sh file to edit it, and this was all that was there …

#!/bin/sh

echo “>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Update Start >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>“
SCRIPT_ROOT=”/boot/efi/”

Put your update script here

$SCRIPT_ROOT/led_control.sh normal off
$SCRIPT_ROOT/led_control.sh breath on
#$SCRIPT_ROOT/led_control.sh issue on
$SCRIPT_ROOT/led_control.sh 3g on

echo “Call partition update script”
$SCRIPT_ROOT/copy_partitions_to_emmc.sh $SCRIPT_ROOT
$SCRIPT_ROOT/init_content_hdd.sh /dev/sda
echo ">>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Change status >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>"
if [ $? -eq 0 ]; then
echo “OK”
$SCRIPT_ROOT/led_control.sh breath off
$SCRIPT_ROOT/led_control.sh issue off
$SCRIPT_ROOT/led_control.sh normal on
else
echo “FAIL”
$SCRIPT_ROOT/led_control.sh breath off
$SCRIPT_ROOT/led_control.sh issue on
fi

echo "Copy log files"
cp /var/log $SCRIPT_ROOT/ -fr
sync

echo "<<<<<<<<<<<<<< Update Over <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<"
exit 0

What do I do now?

What version of RACHEL-Plus do you own? Version 1 or version 2?

NOTE: You can tell by looking at the back of the RACHEL-Plus. If the Model is WRTD-303N, then yo have version 1. If the Model is WAPD-235N, then you have version 2.

Version 1.
The Model is WRTD-303N.

Help, please?
I need to know what to do.

Hi @Rose…let’s try and fix your situation. You have asked similar questions in a couple of different areas which makes it a bit confusing to help you. In the future, it’s probably best to start a new topic that specifically talks to your situation. I think I already answered your issue of how to help. Please look at this link first. If those couple posts don’t help your situation, please start a new topic and I will help you solve your specific challenge.

One note to your situation (as much as I understand it)…you will probably be best served with running the current RACHEL Recovery USB here in Method 3 (follow the pics above to change your USB from Method 1 to Method 3). That will build you a new RACHEL-Plus with all the latest updates. After that, you can download modules from the web interface or download a bunch at once with the command line tool.
