Intel Edison corrupted flash

I was flashing my intel edison like the instructions here say and I think I might have disconnected the cable before it finished flashing and it somehow corrupted the edison drive. Now when I connect my edison the drive shows up but it has no space its an empty folder and If I try to copy anything to it it says it is a read only file system and has no space left. How do I fix this? I am now stuck at linux image version 56 and cannot update.

Re: Intel Edison corrupted flash

don't know what "like the instructions" is. "flashall --recovery" should do the trick. No need to copy anything onto Edison manually - the script will take care of this via "dfu-util". Pls check this forum for "flashall" for more info on that

Re: Intel Edison corrupted flash

I followed this instructions: /docs/DOC-23200# jive_content_id_Step_3__Download_the_latest_image https://communities.intel.com/docs/DOC-23200# jive_content_id_Step_3__Download_the_latest_image

I ran flashall --recovery then flashall and now it gets stuck while booting at this stage:

Re: Intel Edison corrupted flash

That looks a little like if the recovery part succeeded but the one with the OS image itself (flashall without arguments) hasn't.

Was it reporting the status at that second part? It should have taken about 3-5 minutes to run through it, was that the case?

Re: Intel Edison corrupted flash

note: you'd have to run flashall twice (if using an unmodified script): first with "--recovery" and second without option (2nd time would reboot twice and take about 5 min)

Re: Intel Edison corrupted flash

I figured it out, you have to run flashall with superuser permissions for it to work, flashall --recovery doesnt care but if I don't run flashall with sudo it won't work/

Re: Intel Edison corrupted flash

Yeah, that was exactly what I suspected, thus my question about how long it took - when not run as root it just zaps through really fast without doing anything.
