Continuous Firmware Recovery Loop?!

Recommended Posts

My Update to 1.1 failed.
I did wrong and put the unpacked gz file beside the packed one (I should have read this one https://forums.hak5.org/index.php?/topic/40681-help-installing-11-update/)
Since the device does not start properly. First it fails three times (LED is first green, turns off and stays off). As described here http://wiki.bashbunny.com/#!././index.md#Firmware_Recovery) the firmware recovery seems to start withteh forth start.

Here is what the LED says:
00:00    green
00:04    off
00:07     red blinking
04:05    blue/red
04:25    green
04:29    off
04:32    red blinking
04:47    off
04:50    green
04:54    off - stays off

Afterwards its starts from strach. Three time green, off and stays off. Forth time same recovery procedure.

Does anybody have the same issue? Any way to break trough this loop?

BTW The bunny itself becomes very hot.

So have you been able to figure anything out to get your BB working again?

Is anyone else having this problem?

Any help would be appreciated.

Is the device getting enough power, sometime if the device is connected to the computer instead of a powerblock like the iphone wall based usb block, sometimes the device doesn't get enough or faulty power and causes it to do a sort of loop to try and fix itself. Instead of letting do this loop, why not force the BB into DFU mode from plug in to the block after the green light goes off, unplug do this 3 more times then just leave it. it should go through the flash process correctly. I have never had this issue as of yet, but this is just a theory of what is going on with your devices.

Thank you for the comprehensive response.
I run the update on a PC and on a USB power supply. Same result (loops).
Just two questions since I am not sure about your answer:
- What do you mean by "DFU mode"?
- Which "green light goes off" do you mean? The one after 04:25 or after 04:50 or just after the first one - times see in initial post?

I am having the same problem. Another problem the Bunny itself is very hot. I've contacted Hak5 support. This is ridiculous, I own almost every Hak5 product and this has never happened and it seems a hand full of people are having the same problem with no solution.

Just encountered this problem as I tried to update it, I followed the directions perfectly. I don't know what went wrong:sad: I tried everything but nothing worked, it looks like to be stuck in a loop forever, hope we can either get a replacement or help. Good luck to everyone with the same problem.
