Title: iriver 120 fried or bootload/ software corrupted? help...
Post by: kingtone on June 13, 2007, 04:23:00 PM
hi guys,

last night at a gig, the 120 wouldn't start up (worked fine the night before). i thought the batt was dead, but it turns out that the only way to start up is by pressing the reset button and start up. now i'm back to original Iriver screen and when turned off, the same process need be repeated.

i downloaded the latest build and reloaded that. it loaded Rockbox, it worked once, but after turning it off, it's back to the same problem as before.

something is major corrupted and not sure how to clean house/proceed from here. no recordings have been lost but any help getting the iriver/rockbox running again appreciated :)

thanks,

lucio

can someone email me a bootloader patch? i'm on the road and use a mac, so i cannot run the .exe file to remake the patch.

i figured on starting from square one as this thing is really [profanity deleted] now.

upon startup (using the reset button) i just get the 'iriver' logo. 1 out of ten tries and it'll go to the 1st 'bootloader' screen and sit there - but at least i can get a usb connection...

Here is a patched iriver h120 firmware to flash. Let me know when you retrieved the file as I won't keep it online very long.

No guarantees given except that fwpatcher said the patch was successfull. Zipped to ensure integrity. Don't flash if unzipping gives errors.

sorry for posting in the wrong place, it's the only forum i ever read or understood, really.

for a while i could get it to restart thru some random combination of reset and on button. usually the original 'iriver' screen came up and froze, but every once in while i could get the rockbox bootloader screen up and it would also freeze there, but at least with that i could get a usb connection. i reloaded the rockbox file and folder, but no change.

at this point it won't even restart. the screen used to be blank but now there is a faint jumble of gibberish at the top when 'off.' plugging in phones makes no noise unles i touch the unit, then it emits a 60 cyle hum...
