ruspray,

Download the Lenovo u-boot backup file mtd0.bin from this post:

https://forum.doozan.com/read.php?3,19216,38354#msg-38354

And connect serial console, using UART booting method:

Once you can boot with kwboot as described, it is unrbicked!

ruspray,


1. Check the serial connection on both ends. Has this serial console converter ever been connected to the Lenovo and working before?

2. If you run minicom or picocom (instead of kwboot) with serial console what do you see? any output at all?

Yes exactly

ruspray,

If kwboot does not work then the only way that you might be able to unbrick it is using JTAG. Look for JTAG interface on this board.

kwboot will only work if we can find UART0 connection somewhere on the IX2 circuit board. Look at forum discussion "No serial output from kernel on Iomega ix2-dl(ng)" for a possible way to restore these devices. At yet, this method is untested.

Anybody can restore device? I have same state of IX2-NG after find bad blocks on NAND and type nand scrub.
Trying kwboot not help me. IX2-ng not response. May be trying JTAG? Anybody know how to use JTAG?
