Hi,

I'm trying to use the SonyNWDestTool  in linux, but nothing is happening, are there any package dependencies required?

this is with debian 11 live btw

i've renamed the file to scsittol

when I run"

"su scsitool"

all I see is

su: user scsitool does not exist or the user entry does not contain all the required fields

if i try
user@debian:~/Downloads$ su scsitool /media/user/WALKMAN
su: user scsitool does not exist or the user entry does not contain all the required fields

saratoga:
The second argument to su is the user name you want to run as.  Perhaps you were thinking of the sudo command instead of su, which does work like that.

There are two problems:
1. As saratoga mentioned, you want to use sudo, not su.
2. On non-Windows systems the current folder is by default not in the search path. A simple "scsitool" doesn't include a path, so the shell cannot find the file in the search path. You can either specify an absolute or relative path, both work fine.

Use

--- Code: ---sudo ./scsitool /media/user/WALKMAN

--- End code ---

Thanks for the help guys

Though it's a bit of a moot point now, managed to update the firmware, first on a mac and then in a windows vm on linux

then I was using the scsi tool in the windoiws vm, scsi tool changed desf fine, then I put a paper clip in the reset button, just before I was about to install Rockbox

paper clip reset bricked the walkman

I'm not seeing anything in dmesg or lsusb

:/

the usb address was, and I'm writing this down now before I forget  054c:0b79

are there any ways to recover it or is it permanently dead?

Magknoti2:
Are there any known jtag or hardware clip methods for the flashing of Sony walkmans?
