did read the links through and used 'the link' from emusan (fixed golden dingo) which has been edited with the idea of altered the update.sh. NO luck yet. When flashing the golden dingo, the usd flash for few seconds and staying light up, but on other response then.

Seriel cable one, can anyone offer a step by step procedure instruction please.

thanks

The procedure to recover from using the wrong update file can be found here (post #88): http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...07#post1781507

AND you will want to look at this as well:

(post # 62): http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...+update&page=5



You may want to read through several of the posts in and around these two posts for additional information however, everything you will need including photos is primarily contained in the two posts referenced except see post # 94 for a complete set of cables required (http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...=145540&page=7)




Basically you use the USB to DB-9 cable from your PC, plug one end of the DB-9 to DB-9 cable into the DB-9 end of the USB cable, and chop off the other end and mate it to the 3 pin header cable.


If you identify and label the wires on pins 2, 3, and 5 beforehand on the DB-9 / DB-9 cable (buy one without a molded shell or with a cheap plastic shell which can be easily broken if possible) you can just twist and tape those to the wires on pins 1, 2, and 3 of the header cable and eliminate the need for soldering.


DB9 Pin 2 (RX) --> Header Pin 1 (TX)
DB9 Pin 5 (Gnd) --> Header Pin 2 (Gnd)
DB9 Pin 3 (TX) --> Header Pin 3 (RX)


OR


If you or someone else can open the DB-9 end of the USB / DB-9 cable and carefully identify and label the wires attached to pins 2, 3, and 5 of the DB-9 connector, you can wire those directly to the header cable and eliminate the need for soldering as well as the DB-9 to DB-9 cable.


OR


I really can't tell from the photos but, you may be able to cut and separate the male pins on a prefabricated 3-pin header cable like this one (http://www.amazon.com/3-pin-Female-M.../dp/B005TX3JWE) and plug these into pins 2, 3, and 5 of a DB-9 to USB cable ([http://www.amazon.com/RS-232-DB-9-Ca...545311&sr=1-27) with a DB-9 gender changer (http://www.amazon.com/Your-Cable-Sto...536119&sr=1-15) and eliminate the need for soldering and the DB-9 to DB-9 cable. Notice on the gender changer the pins are clearly numbered.



I realize this isn't an easy fix but, if you take your time and read through the posts referenced you or someone you know should be able to do it. The other owners who accidentally installed the wrong update were able to recover their eDGe so there is hope. I wish you all the best.
