I managed to brick my beagleboard and I'm unable to proceed with any
of the un-bricking options described in the wiki.
First I cannot seem to be able to boot from SD card at all. May be the
SD card is not 4-bit reference manual suggests it should be.
So, I tried UART recover, which fails during the pserial step:
$ ./pserial -p /dev/ttyS0 -f x-load.bin
Waiting For Device ASIC ID: Press Ctrl+C to stop
Did not read asic ID ret = 1
After a lot of struggling I got to boot u-bbotV2 using the USB
recovery process and executed the loadb command. I do see the "## ##
Ready for binary (kermit) download to 0x00000000 offset on /dev/ram0
device at 115200 bps..." but when I try to send a file (by ctrl+A ,s
and select a file then hit enter) Minicom sits there doing nothing (i
think). I waited for a hours hoping it the slow serial port speed but,
does it take more than an hour to download the u-bootV1 image?? Am i
missing something? How do i send a file from minicom using kermit?
Any insights are most appreciated.
