Hi all,

When toying around with my Netwalker I bricked it twice.
So had to do a restore twice already, so here is a manual.

See my blog with latest info!

Requirements
  • PC running linux (I am using Ubuntu/OpenSuse)
  • Micro SD-Card (min 4 GB) - IT WILL DELETE ALL FILES ON IT!
  • Netwalker Restore Pack - Download

To Do
  1. we have to find out which /dev/sd* is the Micro SD-Card. (You can use Gparted to find out)
    Example 1: Your system has 1 harddisk
    Harddisk = /dev/sda
    Micro SD-Card = /dev/sdb
    Example 2: You system has 3 harddisks
    Harddisk 1 = /dev/sda
    Harddisk 2 = /dev/sdb
    Harddisk 3 = /dev/sdc
    Micro SD-Card = /dev/sdd

  2. Now we know which is the Micro SD-Card we can use the following command:
    dd if=netwalker.img of=/dev/sdb bs=1M
    Be sure to be in the same directory as your netwalker img file, and edit your path to your Micro SD-Card if needed.
    For example:
    dd if=/home/username/Downloads/ netwalker.img of=/dev/sdd bs=1M
  3. This process will take some time, so go get yourself a coffee/snack and return to your pc after a 15 – 30 minutes.
    When you can start your new command in the Teminal it is done.
  4. Put the micro SD-Card in your Netwalker.
  5. Hold down the two mouse buttons and start your Netwalker, keep the buttons down even after the Sharp logo.
  6. A Japanese question will be asked: press Y
  7. After the restore is done, press ENTER
