Big problem:

After flashing of this firmware "LS-GL_FW_103-jtymod5-29_3_2007" ...
Quote:
http://buffalo.nas-central.org/download/Upload ... 3_2007.zip
...
thats why there is one severe bug inside. you cannot reboot or shutdown. this means you will have to wait after flashing until it says it is successfully finished, wait another minute and then reboot by pressing the power button long. next reboot everythings ok.

...my new LS-Pro doesn't work now. Reboot by pressing the power button long was without success and so the LS-Pro is not usable now. The power LED is flashing until error after minutes - without connection to the network. All trials without success!

Any idea or a trick to revive the LS-Pro?

<sorry for my bad english>

Thanks for help via PM - but no success.

I tried to revive via TFTP, but no tftp-request from the LS_Pro!
It is possible, that a buggy firmware can destroy the bootloader?
I think YES - a friend of mine has the same problem with this firmware!!!
Both LS-Pro are dead now.

1) have you changed the IP of your workstation to a 192.168.11.x one?
2) are you connecting the LS Pro directly or via a Hub/switch or even a router?
only direct connection or a connection via a Hub or switch will work. a router would block the packages from the wrong IP-range.

for example if you normally use a 192.168.1.x-IP-range a router would just drop all packages from 192.168.11.x .

Also if your box is booting normally i think there are no tftp requests. in that case you might have to connect the hdd to a workstation running linux(knoppix is recommended for windows users), recover the data and then delete all partitions of the hdd. after putting the hdd into the LS pro again there should be these tftp requests again. i think they only are performed when a problem occurs.....you can simply test this with a blank seperate sata disk.

- LS-Pro connected with crossover directly to the PC
- IP address 192.168.11.1
- TFTP server is running
- Server path contains initrd.buffalo and uImage.buffalo
- Switch on LS-Pro
- No request.

But the HDD is not empty and actually it is not possible for me to connect the HDD via SATA to a Linux-PC. I will do it next week and then try again. If it does not work, I will throw the LS-Pro in the garbage bin and mount the HDD to another NAS case...

have you updated "BOOT"? have you checked that no TFTP server is running anymore? what does the box do at all?

- LS-Pro (HDD empty) connected with crossover directly to the PC
- IP address 192.168.11.1
- TFTP server is running
- Server path contains initrd.buffalo and uImage.buffalo
- Switch on LS-Pro
.....Power LED is flashing
.....LAN LED is green
.....After (about) 5 minutes LAN / Power LED off and error LED is flashing (beep)
- No request to TFTP server and no IP in the 192.168.1.0 subnet (IP scanner).

A friend of mine has the same prob after flashing this firmware.
I think the boot loader is dead, only a jtag interface can help - but not with me...

What do you mean with 'updated BOOT'?

I think this is a typo 'cos you've already mentioned the 192.168.11.* netmask before...

did you deselect the option for updating the Boot-'sector' of your LS?

IP: Of course, 192.168.11.0 was mentioned.
BOOT: That's a part of the Updater ... and the Updater cannot work, if the LS invisible in the local network.

ok, it is invisible NOW, but did you mention to uncheck "boot" as you've updated to the custom firmware?

i'm sure it is.... "NEVER "Update BOOT"... see the link below...

the problem is, that the ls pro has moved to a new hardware like the ls live...
the new ls live v2 seems to use the (more or less) same hardware like the new ls pro.
(as described here: http://buffalo.nas-central.org/index.php/Linkst ... ifferences )

this new hardware is neither completly documented nor discovered - so you are flashing a system-software, which was developed for a different hardware...

this works, BUT only when you use some caution. even the stock firmware bricks a ls live v2, for example, when you don't uncheck the BOOT-option while updating.

the only solution for you is to revive your box from scratch as you've alredy tried...
http://buffalo.nas-central.org/index.php/Revive ... om_scratch
if your box cannot connect, make sure that you've really turned off ALL firewalls (win firewall, antivirus firewall, etc.) or port blocks!

if this doesn't work (it should!) and you cannot connect your disc to a linux pc, use a knoppix live cd.

i hope this helps a little
