Hookup your machine in whatever way your OS needs.
For me an ifconfig of the usb port would do it. Then selecting that as the main network before I try to ssh...or scp... Some fiddling with host files may be required. it's not that tough to get past this section whatever your OS but is a popular stumbling place.

Put our files on if we didn't already...: ON THE PC

scp ./mmcblk0p1.img root@ktdb:/mnt/us/
Quote:
root@ktdb's password:
mmcblk0p1.img 100% 350MB 1.9MB/s 03:05
(you could export ktdb=192.168.15.244 or use a hosts file, or refer by IP, etc...)

ON THE PC
me@dev ~/GIT/imx $ ssh root@192.168.15.244 \
dd if=/mnt/us/mmcblk0p1.img \
of=/dev/mmcblk0p1 bs=1024

Quote:

367001600 bytes (350.0MB) copied, 305.112103 seconds, 1.1MB/s
Reboot, exit Diags with export to xml if you want to be extra thorough, or just set the mode or whatever to main.

K4 debrick. chalk it up.
