I have created a script and data files to allow a RSMedia-with-USBNet (also called RSMV2) to be reflashed with the original firmware. It should restore a RSMedia back to factory defaults.
You can download it from here (I tried uploading it to robocommunity but it seems too big? - always gets error )
I hope that this could allow some broken RSMedias to be revived.
-If you have a RSMedia that fails to finish booting this MAY help.
-If youhave a RSMedia that behaves strangely, then restoring the original firmaware MAY help.
It will replace:
- The default wowwee files
- The linux system/root image
- The default Wowwee personalities.
(Ie this will reset the RSMedia, Butler, Billy Joe and SpaceBot personalities into RSMedia Onboard storage.)
This script CAN also replace the Linux kernel, but only do this if you REALLY need too - (see instructions.txt in the archgive for more info).
So far its been tested on my robot and by ElectronicGenuis.
It shound NOT be used on an RSMV1 (without USBNet). (The script will check that the robot is a V2 before it reflashes anything dangerous).
[If you have a RSMv1 then click here for a howto to restore its firmware. Or you can upgrade a RSMV1 to RSMV2 with instructions from here (but you MUST have the serial hack done).]
BTW If you want to find if the robot is RSM V1 or RSM V2 then goto Media Mode then Options menu:
RSM V2 has menu 7 = 'USB Net'
RSM V1 does not have a 'USB Net' menu
