Really umbelievable that this device could not be set free instead of bricked.   Plan to try a dispute with American Express against sony store...   will see where it goes

Re: Video of sony brick update

Thanks for posting that video - we're going through it in detail to see what it's doing during the update.

Re: Video of sony brick update

I'm glad someone recorded it!  I have three dashes and one of the three has the flashing logo issue.  I'd be interested what proportion of units have this issue.

Re: Video of sony brick update

It would indeed be nice to know.

It's quite possible that Sony has destroyed enough of the potential user base of chumby-enabled dash devices to significantly alter the business case for supporting them.

Re: Video of sony brick update

Hopefully a method of unbricking can be discovered and that information can be disseminated to the owners of bricked Dashes before owners start throwing their units away.

(Update)
And as hoped, a method of unbricking was discovered.

Tar, feathers, congress. Some assembly required.

Re: Video of sony brick update

Was able to "unbrick" two of mine, so there is hope!  I posted a thread with the steps I followed. Hopefully will work for some others. Posting here so anyone reading will know there is a chance they can "save" their DASH's until the fix is ready.

Re: Video of sony brick update

I have bricked mine twice, and unbricked it twice, thanks to the unbrick method posted here.
