Error: script halting, system unrecognized..

Hello folks,

Hope everyone has been well.

I recently was flashing my BB Wireless (SD → eMMC) and mid-flash lost power to the device. After power cycling, the BeagleBone was still able to flash properly… or so it seemed.

Now when I go to create a new image for production purposes (eMMC → SD) using the tool: /opt/scripts/tools/

I get the following error:

Error: script halting, system unrecognized…

I was running this script no problem prior to the power outage fiasco.

I am assuming there is something corrupted with uBoot which is causing this issue. Is there any way to completely clean the BB and bring it back to a recognized state.

Perhaps something along the lines of: sudo dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/mmcblk1 bs=1M count=1. Unfortunately, this destructive command even did not do the trick…



Did you read the readme.txt in that base directory?

Wow… I can’t believe I mixed that directory up after using this script so much…

Thanks Robert!

Also… 2014 was 6 years ago?? Time flies when your having fun lol
