Messed up linux won't rebuild with run do_ota

Hi!,

Recently I was just starting my Edison board, I was installing the Amazon Web Services packages specifically to use help on the board...

This work-around:

When I was in the red part of it my board dropped the Wifi connection and therefore I had to reconnect via cable and terminal, I got the same problem explained in the workaround for "Messed up linux" but no matter how many times I do it I always come back to an auto reboot.

I'm powering the board with a 9V Battery.

Any leads on what might be wrong here?

Hi lfayala,

Could you please provide the link that you're using to recover the Edison? Run do_ota is no longer the main method to recover the board. The following document provides two methods to recover from a corrupted image /docs/DOC-98643 https://communities.intel.com/docs/DOC-98643. The main method uses the Flash Tool Lite, but if this doesn't work you can try the alternative flashing method, the Flashall Script.

Regards,

Pablo

Hi Pablo,

Thanks for the prompt help. I've migrated to the new Flashing method although Flash Tool Lite in Mac doesn't recognize my Edison Board (I've tried tons of steps on cabling and un-cabling), so then I tried the flashall which its the same, it does not recognize the plug-in. Is there any step-by-step guide on what "plug and reboot the board" or in the case of Flash Tool Lite "Un-plug and re-plug it" actually means?

Hi lfayala,

Was your board being recognized before trying to flash the board? You can find more detailed instructions for the Flashall script method following this link https://software.intel.com/en-us/flashing-firmware-on-your-intel-edison-board-mac-os-x https://software.intel.com/en-us/flashing-firmware-on-your-intel-edison-board-mac-os-x. For the Flash Tool Lite, all the instructions come in the document that I shared in my first reply.

Could you please tell us if the Device Manager changes once you connect your Edison board? Also, do you have any other way to power up the board aside from the 9V battery? Maybe a power supply.

Regards,

Pablo

Hi lfayala,

Do you have updates on this case? Did you try to flash the board using the document that I provided?

Regards,

Pablo
