I’ve had a “semi bricked” unit lying here for while. It was bricked with the famous .12 firmware update.
Get the update with usb drive screen on the TV.
I am able to communicate with the unit, using a serial connection to the PCB. There I see almost all of the startup process, that ends with a corrupt file message.
I can enter YAMON by pressing 0 (zeros) at the startup. In the old type of WD TV I know there are an hex adress containing OKOK for the status of the firmware. Suspect the WD TV HD LIVE has a similar status in YAMON.
Does anyone have further details about this?
If we are able to delete the OKOK, I suspect an automatic firmware upgrade will be possible.
