Re: Sony bricking Dash units, DO NOT UPGRADE FIRMWARE!
Does anyone know why this update is killing some Dashes and not others?
Where are you getting the firmware to roll it back?
Duane, which firmware will be required for the Chumby software?
I have this sinking feeling... anyone who requested the replacement device got a brick, and everyone else gets an open device.
I'm uncertain there's any connection. Considering I have 2 units and the responses they have (one sometimes works while one didn't) varies frequently, at times it was for months, I think their authentication servers were jacked up for years, possibly on launch, tbh.
Did you try rollback? Please let me know.
I'm curious if there is any connection. It's possible, but I'm inclined to doubt it given how much attention Sony is paying to the dash. It's probably more trouble than it's worth to target specific consumers. TBH, having worked in a callc center, I think they're just requesting the S/IN so everyone doesn't call to get a free clock. I think it'd be easier if they requested the plug (common in recalls so you don't resell a recalled item) if they wanted to absolve themselves of all legal liability of any implied contract and keep the items off the secondhand market.
