NSA-325 Bricked ? HDD2 LED constantly active
February 11, 2019 11:47AM
Hey :/
i have a problem with my NSA325 v1.

The NAS did not respond.
I turn it on an off by pull out the energy connection.
I try to reset without any success, the NAS make no noise (Beep).

The NAS get no IP-Address. The Power LED and the HDD2 LED is active and that's is.
I google for help and find this :NSA-325 Bricked HDD2 LED constantly active
"I have noticed that the power LED and the HDD2 LED are always on (The power LED blinks once right after plugging in the power).
The power button is not working, the only way to power off the NAS is to unplug the power cord."

I read the post and did not understand what they do xD

Can anyone help me?

Flecks,

Are you running stock FW on this box?

Hi Bodhi,
yes it was a stock firmware, i dont know which version but i downloaded and installed it by the normal Zyxel GUI.

Flecks,

Unfortunately we don't use stock FW here. So you might get a better answer at NAScentral for stock FW.

If all else fails, and you need to rescue your box, you will need to install serial console and follow this example to run UART booting:

When you need help with buy parts for serial console:

The NAS325 already has serial header installed at factory. You will only need to connect the 3 wires (GND, TXD, RXD). No need to solder.

Hey
i connect my raspberry pi (V1) to the NAS by UART, then i try the kwboot thing for several times.
After flashing 100% nothing happens, no restart nothing.
I try some variations, to be sure that im doing right.
1. UART > start kwboot > plug in power supply
2. UART > plug in power supply > start kwboot

pi@raspberrypi:~ $ ./kwboot -t -B 115200 /dev/ttyAMA0 -b uboot.2017.07-tld-1.nsa325.mtd0.kwb -p
Sending boot message. Please reboot the target...\
Sending boot image...
  0 % [......................................................................]
	   ....
 99 % [....................................]
[Type Ctrl-\ + c to quit]

I will search tomorrow for a solution maybe i have luck.

thx bodhi

Flecks,

Try using the new kwboot binary I've attached to this post:

Hey,
the new kwboot binary doesnt work, the same problem, "Sending boot image..." after that no rebotos nothing.
I think the NAS is totaly broken for ever. :/

Flecks,

When you see this:

pi@raspberrypi:~ $ ./kwboot -t -B 115200 /dev/ttyAMA0 -b uboot.2017.07-tld-1.nsa325.mtd0.kwb -p
Sending boot message. Please reboot the target...\
Sending boot image...
  0 % [......................................................................]
	   ....
 99 % [....................................]
[Type Ctrl-\ + c to quit]

It means it is recoverable :) u-boot has been loaded, just that the handshake at that time did not work right so the NSA325 BootROM never starts u-boot.

Let me find and show you another method.

Download the tarball in this post:
https://forum.doozan.com/read.php?2,50829,73124#msg-73124

And try running the download-serial script using the u-boot image I've attached in this post (from the rPI, just like running kwboot ).

./download-serial.sh /dev/ttyUSB0 uboot.1.1.4-nsa325v2-uart.bin

Once it's finish loading, you should start picocom or minicom for serial console, or whatever serial console command you've been using. See if you can tell if this u-boot is running. And try to interrupt it if it is still at countdown.

I don't have a latest UART-built version for the NSA325. But I could do that, if you successfully loaded and run using this script.

Okay when it is recoverable I will try my best to do this.

I download the files, an excecute it on the Raspberry.
pi@raspberrypi:~/test2 $ ./download-serial.sh /dev/ttyAMA0 uboot.1.1.4-nsa325v2-uart.bin


I don't know what the program do, but I tested several times and quit after 4 iterations.
I noticed that the NAS reboot every ~30 sec. and I get this output:

Test1 :
Sleeping
Out of sleep
Got something 34
Sleeping
Out of sleep
Got something 51
Sleeping
Out of sleep
Got something 0
Sleeping
Out of sleep
Got something 85
.....


Test2:

Sleeping
Out of sleep
Got something 214
Sleeping
Out of sleep
Got something 215
Sleeping
Out of sleep
Got something 0
Sleeping
Out of sleep
Got something 84
....

Flecks,

> Sleeping
> Out of sleep
> Got something 214
> Sleeping
> Out of sleep
> Got something 215

When you see it repeats like this, Control-C to terminate, recall the command and execute again.

Look what's happens. :) I think we are on the right way. :)


Sleeping
Out of sleep
Got something 21
Got NACK (0x15) character
The board should be in serial downloader now. Sending the binary file
Sending uboot.1.1.4-nsa325v2-uart.bin, 3713 blocks: Give your local XMODEM receive command now.
Xmodem sectors/kbytes sent:   0/ 0kRetry 0: Timeout on sector ACK
Retry 0: Timeout on sector ACK
Retry 0: Timeout on sector ACK
Retry 0: Timeout on sector ACK
Retry 0: Timeout on sector ACK

After that I try to read data by minicom but there was nothing.
I don't know what I have to do, whats the meaning of the Numbers?
And I actually cant repeat the successful upload.

This was worse then kwboot! the image has not been transfered at all.

Your best bet is to fix kwboot session. So check your connection wires, make sure the kwboot binary is the latest that I posted,.... things lke that.

If this box is bricked, you would not have gotten to transfer the uboot image successfully like you did. Usually a bricked NSA325 is silent when you run kwboot.

Hey,
I was ill the last view days, I will test at Weekend an Arduino Programmer to load the image.:)
