C3200 "bricked" - Read Posts & Topics
« on: January 10, 2008, 06:52:05 am »
Not sure what to do at this point, I've tried every trick people have mentioned here to no avail...

I was installing uboot & fat-fingered the command '# ./autobootsh . (I put a '?' in place of the final '.').  It tried to reboot & that's the last I saw of this thing working.  I've only had it for a day =/.

I've just dl'd the SYSTC320.zip from the German site & will try using that to restore; however, I am not hopeful as I cannot even get it to blink a single light.  The uboot flash did great, I'm not sure why it would fail so hard with a fat-fingered mistake.  Does the autbootsh replace the boot file in ROM when installing pdaXrom?

Anybody know a good fix for this?

I've tried:

Remove all power, apply batter, cord, PRESS 'OK', lock battery into place;
""... Press & hold "OK" apply battery, lock into place, put in power cord;
""... Press & hold "d+m" both above
""... Press & hold "Fn+d+m" with both above

I really hope I didn't brick this thing, you would see one depressed linux puppy...

Try this:

-Remove all power (battery and AC)
-leave battery compartment unlocked
-hold Fn+D+M and insert AC
-wait for 10 seconds

If that doesn't work, I may be out of ideas.

after uboot flash :
put the r198 files on the card (instead of uboot ones)
""... Press & hold "OK" put in power cord;
and try installing again (forget the battery until it's up and running)
