Hi all,

My Netwalker boots into the normal Ubuntu screen and then a long long long black screen and just can't boot into the Desktop.

I know there is a way using restore.sh and a Micro-SD card to recover it to the stock setting, but now I even cannot load to X.

Can anybody figure out how I could recover (or fix?) it?

Thanks in advanced.

Do you have the recovery card?

If you don't you need another Linux box with a (micro)SD card reader. Then, use this script to create the microSD recovery card which will enable you to get back to square one.

http://people.debian.org/~osamu/pub/spider-recovery

This can be run on any Linux PC like this (/dev/mmcblk0 is your card reader, change if necessary):
CODE
sudo DEV=/dev/mmcblk0 ./spider-recovery


On a sidenote, can you press Ctrl-Alt-F1 when you see the black screen and get to a console? If yes you can try to log on and fix the problem if you know what it is.

Hi merlin1,

Based on your script, I could obtain a recovery card using my Linux Desktop.

But now I insert it into the Netwalker, boot it using "L" + "R" mouse buttons together with the power button, the original "Sharp" logo appears but no recovery menu appears...

I kept these buttons pressed, but still no response...is there any tricks to get into it?
