out of warranty OS re-flash repair costs?

anyone know how much it’s going to cost me to get my operating system re-flashed?

You mean the bootloader is f++ked up? Otherwise you can simply do it yourself…

Can you describe the symptoms? What happens, when you power up while holding COM button?

i’ll have to unbox it, it’s been packed up to mail for a few months. if i remember correctly something went wrong during a past firmware update, and it’s just stuck on the screen where you can upload the firmware.

i’ve got an RMA, TE seemed to think i needed to send it in. but if there’s new hope, i’m interested in hearing it…

Well, we’ll try our best… So: W<span style=“color: rgb(37, 38, 30); font-family: “lucida grande”, “Lucida Sans Unicode”, tahoma, sans-serif; font-size: 13px; background-color: rgb(252, 252, 255);”>hat happens, when you power up while holding COM button? Do you see the bootloader menu?

here’s what happens when I boot it up


if you can’t read that…
the first line is:

\src\db2\db2.cpp:273 Can’t open /yaffs2content/tape.db

i assume this means a database is corrupted

if I boot while holding down COM

I get the TE-BOOT screen with the standard options

If I try to install the latest firmware using the described method. It seems to work, but then the screen just gets stuck on “tests 0 through 257 complete”

the version of TE-BOOT is 1.35

I’ve also tried factory reset, format drive, etc. no luck.

this is the same error



Shit, better send it to them…
