MPSS 3.8.4 flash update failure - Windows

Reset since this was going nowhere.

 

coinstash@Corner MINGW64 /c/Program Files/Intel/MPSS
$ micctrl -s
mic0: online (mode: flash image: C:\Program Files\Intel\MPSS\rasmm-kernel.knightscorner-c.elf)

 

I now have a broken installation. After resetting mic0 I can't ssh into it any longer.

OK, found the problem. The firmware update does NOT work from a Git Bash shell. Must use the CMD shell supplied with Windows.

I'd say this is a simple lack of correct path to the image file. Even though Git Bash was invoked in the right directory the stupid thing can't see the files.

New issue. Firmware update successful but now the card won't boot after rebooting the host.

 

coinstash@Corner MINGW64 ~
$ micctrl -r

coinstash@Corner MINGW64 ~
$ micctrl -s
mic0: ready

coinstash@Corner MINGW64 ~
$ micctrl -b

coinstash@Corner MINGW64 ~
$ micctrl -s
mic0: booting (mode: linux image: C:\Program Files\Intel\MPSS\filesystem\bzImage-knightscorner.bin)

coinstash@Corner MINGW64 ~

mic0: booting (mode: linux image: C:\Program Files\Intel\MPSS\filesystem\bzImage-knightscorner.bin)

After waiting for a really long time I can finally ssh into it. The above message is totally different to what I expected from using MPSS 3.8.3 but it does seem to be working now.

<fx: scratches head>

What the hell is it doing booting off that image? And why can't I access the internet again?

Changes made to mic0.filelist are completely ineffectual.

More weirdness ... I can see mic0 using ipconfig but it no longer shows up in the Network Connections panel.

Intel, what have you done?

Edit: It was there but the name change I made to it had been deleted so it looked just like any other generic network connection. Whew.

 

Still can't ping out from mic0. Bloody heck, I have to solve that issue all over again.

Default gateway - check.

Name server - check.

AHA!!! I haven't reinstated the bridge between mic0 and the wifi dongle.

It's all working again.

God I hate software upgrades.
