Roll-back Firmware
Is there a way to roll-back your A-200 to the previous firmware? I'm having some serious issues with the new firmware which I'm unable to fix:

Please let me know how someone can roll back to the previous firmware and maybe try and reinstall the new one again from scratch. Thanks!

RE: Roll-back Firmware
Just download the firmware from popcornhour.com. Extract all contents and put it on the root directory of a USB stick.

Navigate to it and run usbupdate.html.

Make sure you also have the accompanying apps.nmt file because you will probably need to roll back NMT Apps. When you run the NMT Setup wizard, select the source as USB as well instead of online.

P.S. I read your original thread and it seems to me your internal HD might need maintenance using e2fsck but that's a bit tricky for those folk not familiar with linux.

If you want to reinstall the new firmware just install it, installing an old firmware first is an unnecessary step; flashing a device is not like upgrading Windows in that regard. Looking at your original thread though it looks like you may have some permissions issues on your local drive which this may not directly fix. Windows tools won't help you here either.

Yes, I Just tried the update and it didn't fix my issue.
So how do we fix the permission issue then?? There's no way I can format the drive - it's got over a TB of movies! HELP!!

Again it all gets pretty technical from here...

YES it can be fixed but honestly it's really hard to instruct you using a forum.

The process involves installing lundman's shell to get netcat working. This is like a shell for linux running unix commands in your PCH.

Other ways are to remove the drive, install it in a USB enclosure attached to a PC booting up Ubuntu but again without real linux experience you just might get frustrated.

Maybe you have friends who can assist.

RE: Roll-back Firmware
If you can handle removing the HDD and connecting it to your PC then the rest is relatively easy.

Just follow this WIKI page showing how to get gparted and burn it to ISO. Then boot from your CD and highlight each partition and select fdsk. In the Guide follow it until you get to the formatting part, there is when you should select the fdsk option rather than any formatting option. That should fix your HDD issues.

Thanks Chris! Looks fairly straightforward... will give it a shot as soon as I get my hands on a PC (using a laptop currently).
