In attempt to install the new awesome 1.9.1 on my Kickstarter Edition (second batch) MOD Duo I seem to have finally bricked the thing.
Following the recommendations I got up to the step where the device was supposed to reboot back to rescue mode after flashing that “special update file” so that I could flash the firmware itself. The device did reboot, but all it showed me after that reboot was “plug USB cable to PC” on the left screen. I did try plugging it to two different PCs, but nothing changed.
I tried the MOD Duo factory reset. The script worked OK, but the device’s LEDs never (as in “40 minutes later as opposed to a minute promised in the guide”) turned blue. If I try to power-cycle it, I’m greeted with “plug USB cable to PC” again.
So, a couple of hours into the upgrade attempt, all I get from my MOD Duo is “plug USB cable to PC”. I’m able to activate the FEL mode and even flash this file, but that gives no results.
Anybody out there with Kickstarter Editions — beware!
