A10 .fex and .bin config files

I am posting this for my own future reference

On the Mele A1000 there is a compiled configuration file named 'evb.bin'. This has been a mystery to me, but the fog is gradually clearing.

This is useful information:

There is another utility to convert a .fex file to .bin, available as binary executable only. This page has a link to it:

.bin to .fex
This has a Ruby script to convert the other way:

It's obviously some trivial conversion, so I wonder why no one has bothered writing a script for .fex to .bin, rather than rely on the binary...

Amery has just finished a tool for .fex to .bin and it is in his git repo.

Re fex2bin
steev,
Yes, I have it, tested it and it works.

I fiddled with one of the parameters, to try and get my SATA drive to work, no go.
