Hi fellas,

Still using my LS1 box. I have a corrupt Freelink install (which I cant boot into) and wish to switch to the Openlink firmware. I can override UBoot initial process .......... unfortunately Buffalo Firmware Updater cannot find the unit even though it's pingable @ 192.168.11.150.

*I have a RX serial console hardwired with serial/ttl. but I have no write access as the track was damaged on the pcb.*

I'm not sure what my options are here?

Jon

I was thinking of loading stock firmware via u-boot TFTP and running EM Mode, but I don't know the memory parameters etc, how would I do that ??

tftp ???? firmimg.bin
boot m ?????

Sorted it out myself.

- Overwrote (Somehow) enhanced telnet+ftp EM Mode flash with stock buffalo EM Mode so I could use the buffalo windows tool.
- When flashing with Linkstation Utility I found it shuts down and reboot back to EM and wouldn't progress and finalizes with a premature 'flashing failed'... So I remedied this by unplugging the ethernet cable (for about five seconds) just after starting flashing whilst it says 'saving settings' then plug cable back in and it continues to flash and prepares the HDD just fine.

if you are looking for new firmware I just released Debian 7.0 Wheezy with a new 3.4 kernel.
