I was able to ftp a new image.bin and rom.bin to the XEP using the ftp port but it appears all I succeeded in doing was rendering the unit “unbootable”. It’s still pingable but it’s clearly not booting the images I uploaded and I’ve lost the FTP server as result.
Question: will Elk reinstall images (presumably using JTAG) if the unit is returned for service or is this XEP hopelessly bricked? Or, is there a procedure I can perform that’ll reinitialize the bootloader/last working image? (I have a new XEP that’s in use but I’d like to rehabilitate this one to use as a backup if at all possible).
