Bad blocks???


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Attempting to get my tetra back online. Received the "Bad Magic Number" error and attempted the factory recovery using the factory.bin firmware. This did not work.

I decided to watch the firmware upload and install process on the uart port. The upload completed and then I receive the following:

A whole bunch of "bad block [long number]" ending in:


bad block [1225768960]
bad block [1226301440]
Skipped 2304 bad blocks


NAND write: device 0 offset 0x0, size 18874368 ...  18874368 bytes written: OK
web failsafe upgrade failed!

Using eth0
MAC address: 0x0:0x3:0x7f:0x9:0xb:0xad
HTTP server is starting at IP:
HTTP server is ready!


Any ideas? I verified checksum etc to ensure the .bin file was good.

Sounds like wrong firmware or wrong device. Like trying to flash a tetra FW onto a NANO for example worth double checking and re-reading the docs



I have also checked this, but to ensure I did I re-downloaded the tetra factory recovery file (tetra_factory.bin) and follow the reset instructions again. I have a TETRA for future reference.

Any other ideas I can try?
