Topic: RESOLVED: Reset Corrupt "Special Options" Possible?
I understand that the software that handles the "special options" screen is held on a different partition from the main OS. Is there a way to reset/update this as it appears as if I may have corrupt it somehow.
I recently tried to update the firmware to version 1.7.1, but when the Chumby reboot to the special options screen, it just hung. I tried using a USB flash drive to perform the update but it does the same thing, as soon as "Loading Special Options" appears on the screen, the Chumby appears to go no further. I've left the Chumby for several minutes but nothing seems to be happening, just the "loading special options" text on the screen.
One thing that did occur prior to this problem is that I was using the previous latest version (1.7?), but the Chumby suddenly stopped working. It would boot, and seemingly go through all the usual steps but then go to a completely blank screen when attempting to load a Chumby Widget (Chumbyland again). At this point the Chumby was unresponsive, neither the top button or tapping the screen would get any response.
I did a manual downgrade (via USB drive) to version 1.6 (which was fine because of a conflict between Chumbyland widget and version 1.7) and that worked ok. The Chumby then seemed to work fine. However, I then discovered that version 1.7.1 was out and thought I'd upgrade, and that's when I started having the problem.
Any ideas of what I can do? Is there a way I can SSH in and re-install the "special options" partition?
