HI all!
Just updated a 7030 via IT to 4.91. It WAS working on 4.53b ok.

I have done updates on the other versions, really like the SD card idea, easy to recover from issues. Alas, not the 7030 I guess.

I dumped over the files and checked the ini. Looked at WebMMC, and it looked all ready to restart in the new. Now just the usual clicking on the phone and they have no life. The Run and mem lights come up normally. I did a default with the reset switch, the lights went out for a bit and came back, still no joy.

Soooooo, whats the recovery option on the 7030? Or is there something I missed?

Thanks all

7030's take about 20 mins to come back up after a sw upgrade.

You can try leaving it and it might come up otherwise you'll have to recover it.

Im sure it was on for 20 min, maybe interrupted the first time...

Guess I have to search the recover method. I see a rom chip socketed on the board....

We do now... you just have to ask TS for them. There is a new 4.93 recovery that will permanently address the file system issue that causes the 7030 to brick on the older versions. I would suggest doing the upgrade when onsite for any 7030 to save yourself a return trip down the road because eventually they all fail at least once.

By 4.93 recovery I guess you mean firmware 4.93 and later will permanently address the file system issue? Or is it a separate step? I gather a certain boot rom update fixes it.

You don't need to use their cable idea, just a DB9 connector wired to some kind of 3 pin thing that goes on the pins will work. Not always easy to just find the perfect connector for the board, so fake it. No need to go the RJ45 method, DB9 is cheap and easy to get.

The new 4.93 includes a new bootrom that changes the file system.
If you do it before a 7030 goes down you will not need the recovery cable and can do it all with DM.
