Title: Fixing a bricked Cowon D2 in Linux
Post by: sps7 on March 05, 2008, 08:23:21 AM

[My OS is Linux.  I use the nifty distro MEPIS.]

I got my Cowon D2 yesterday-- it had FW 2.50 installed. I charged it up, then listened to the FM radio. After downloading the firmware upgrade (v. 2.54), I only made it thru to the end of the first firmware upgrade step, then my new D2 became a brick--> nothing works, screen is black. So the firmware upgrade process has been interrupted and remains incomplete while my D2 is "busted".

I found the thread on repairing this kind of problem - a Cowon D2 bricked during firmware upgrade - [see http://iaudiophile.net/fo...ms/showthread.php?t=17854 ] but this method is for WinXP. Since a Rockbox developer named Linuxstb created this fix, I hope he/she or someone else can tell me if there's a fix for Linux users.

If there's no way yet to fix a bricked D2 using Linux, I suppose I have to find a WinXP computer and try to fix it with that. Yes or no?

Thanks

Please read the forum guidelines (http://forums.rockbox.org/index.php?topic=5738.0) before you post again, and please don't post the same message in multiple boards.

We don't support the Cowon D2 yet. Go back on iaudiophile.net and see if someone can help you out there.

No.  Our forum guidelines state, "If you cannot find the answer to your question in the FAQ section or through a search, then feel free to start a new thread. (Of course, you should only start one new thread. Do not post the same question in multiple forums.)"

Please do not start multiple threads on the same topic.

In addition, our forum guidelines require you to read the "POSTING IN THIS FORUM" sticky before starting a new thread in a particular forum.  The sticky for this forum clearly indicates that this forum is only for discussion of installing and removing Rockbox on Cowon players.
