I updated my Linkit 7688 over the webinterface with this firmware.
Now its not responding anymore and the WiFi LED does not go off after I connect power.
I tried to reflash the official firmware with a USB Stick connected to the Host Port but its not acting as described here.
In point 7 it should blink for 3min. But it does only for about 15sec. Then WiFi LED goes ON again and stays.
Also reflashing Bootloader over USB does behaves same.
i found this message that seams similar.
Can i rescue my Node somehow?
Ok i was able to read the serial! Yipey! (was my first serialread on terminal)
Here is a link to the normal boot, firmwareflash and bootloaderflash.
It shows quite clear that the usb does not get found.
So i connected a other device and tried to flash that one with the same USB Device.
That looks like this : successfull flash
What's broken if the device does not see the USB Device?
How can i get the device to recognize the USB Device again?
Did you install the drivers?
Can you elaborate that a little?
It does not boot. How can i install anything?
I misunderstood your use of the USB, my apologies.
Are you still trying to recover via USB now, or are you using TFTP?
All I found about tftp was network related but my device does not boot and i do not habe network acess to it, so i think tftp transfair will not work?
There is a serial load mode but i don't know how to use kermit to transfair the bootloader to the device.
here is a pasebin link to the prompt where i can not type anything.
Does somebody know how to use kermit?
edited: after investigating in to the serial transfair...
In Linix the software minicom will do Kermit serial transfer.
OK im finished with this.
what i did: brew install c-kermit
kermit -8 -C "SET LINE /dev/tty.usbserial-A7036OBH, SET CARRIER-WATCH OFF, SET SPEED 57600, SET FLOW XON/XOFF, [here i tried several possibilities, see below]"
(/Users/novski/) C-Kermit> send ~/upload/lks7688.ldr
upload is a self made folder and the lks7688.ldr is the bootloader from here.
There was a error message appearing:
SEND-class command failed.
Packets sent: 2
Damaged packets: 0
Fatal Kermit Protocol Error: Too many retries
HINTS... If the preceding error message does not explain the failure:
. Did you start a Kermit receiver on the far end?
. Adjust the timeout method (see HELP SET SEND).
. Increase the retry limit (see HELP SET RETRY).
. Try it again with: SET STREAMING OFF
. Try it again with: SET PARITY SPACE
. As a last resort, give a ROBUST command and try again.
. Be sure the source file has read permission.
. Be sure the target directory has write permission.
. Be sure the target disk has sufficient space.
(Use SET HINTS OFF to suppress hints.)
and i tried all of those possibilities while for each i pressed the hard reboot button on the board and entered the menu:

2: Load system code then write to Flash via TFTP.
3: Boot system code via Flash (default).
4: Entr boot command line interface.

## Ready for binary (kermit) download to 0x80100000 at 57600 bps...
none of those attempts to upload the bootloader worked. So i tried something i read some ware in the meantime. The hidden option 5 in the bootsequence of the linkit Smart 7688.
That worked like a charm.
I'm now back on 15.05.1r49203 as the official release is.
I will retry to install 18.06.2 later.
I installed 18.06.02 with the serialprinter attached and this is the output.
what does that mean:
[ 27.913672] IPv6: ADDRCONF(NETDEV_CHANGE): br-lan: link becomes ready
[ 130.143607] random: crng init done

[ 166.035244] overlayfs: upper fs does not support tmpfile.
Who made that binary?
Can that person help me fix the problem and recompile?
