I want to add a brick counter to main page that indicates how many TV bricked and how much are recovered :)

Check PM and write here what i ask.
One more question - what methods did you use before FFB? or it was the only method to roll-back firmware?
Ok, i understood. You haven`t run it twice. You haven`t power off it before TV restarts by itself.

Log files show, that images for unbricking are restored fine. You brake flashing process of exe.img, because only appdata.log is on USB and it led to brick.

What speed is your USB flash disk?
I gues here could be problem with slow-speed flashdisks...

Service port for ExLink is on back pannel and it is under Audio jack for earphones(at least on my TV). Port is called "Service".

Make ExLink cable, we restore your bricked TV in 5 min ;)


I think it`s time to review FFB code to avoid more bricks in future. FFB version 0.3 is coming...

ok, you are now inside :)
1. But before please, turn TV off, reopen putty (set putty session log to file), open com connection on putty and turn on TV from RC. I need full log from the beginning, not only what you see at the moment.
2. Copy from here and paste to console just after #:

Code: Select all

 ls -l /mtd_rwarea/PartitionSwitch*
Write what you get here.

Go to console by pressing "Ctrl+c" and enter command:

Code: Select all

ls -l /mtd_rwarea/PartitionSwitch*
Give me output from console. You should get something like:

Code: Select all

# ls -l /mtd_rwarea/PartitionSwitch*
-rw-r--r--    1 root     0               0 Nov 24 11:54 /mtd_rwarea/PartitionSwitch_1_0
