Instructions

This is how I did it:
1. copy the above text in to a file and name it update.sh
2. Add update.sh to the update.zip file.
3. Boot to recovery using either the serial method (at uboot command type run user_boot) or press the Menu and home key for 10 seconds.
4. Let it wipe you PE and recover all partitions and do a factory install.
5. Enjoy your fully functional PE. :-)

(edit I attached the file as update.zip.txt - Rename to update.sh)

so just replace this in a full 230 mb pe dingo *renamed update.sh not update.zip and we are good to go. so the update.zip crc are removed.
I will try menu/rotate first and if fails I will do serial with debugging text.

so I do not have to do:

I don't believe so. The factory restore really rewrites the whole enchilada byte by byte. I had the serial log running and it was very busy!
In update.zip, there is a file names update.sh. This is the file to replace inside of update.zip.

(Good luck!)

I hope this works for everyone. Now that I have my wifes PE running again, she has forbidden me from trying any more "funny stuff" with it
I won't be able to help much with troubleshooting using mine as a test subject
.
I can't wait for Woot to put them on sale again.

unfortunately serial recovery still does the same
as seems my ext2 card has errors.
see attached log
but culprits are here:
[ 16.405545] EXT2-fs (ram0): warning: checktime reached, running e2fsck is recommended
[ 16.413500] VFS: Mounted root (ext2 filesystem) on device 1:0.

[ 16.439301] EXT2-fs (ram0): error: ext2_check_page: bad entry in directory #4218: : rec_len is smaller than minimal - offset=0, inode=0, rec_len=0, name_len=0
[ 16.453557] Kernel panic - not syncing: No init found. Try passing init= option to kernel. See Linux Documentation/init.txt for guidance.
[ 16.466028] Rebooting in 1 seconds..

how can I regenerate this?

Have you tried rewriting the partitions?

//Restore regular boot
tftp 0x7D00000 ramdisk.android.gz.crc
nand erase 0x1200000 0x140000
nand write 0x7D00000 0x1200000 0x100000


//Restore boot_user (PE Restore Mode)
tftp 0x7D00000 ramdisk.maint.gz.crc
nand erase 0x1300000 0x700000
nand write 0x7D00000 0x1300000 0x6C0000
reset
run boot_user

Ubuntu:
1. sudo apt-get install xinetd tftpd tftp xinetd
2. Create /etc/xinetd.d/tftp and put this entry:

service tftp
{
protocol = udp
port = 69
socket_type = dgram
wait = yes
user = nobody
server = /usr/sbin/in.tftpd
server_args = /tftpboot
disable = no
}

3. Make /tftpboot directory

sudo mkdir /tftpboot
sudo chmod -R 777 /tftpboot
sudo chown -R nobody /tftpboot

4. Start tftpd through xinetd
sudo /etc/init.d/xinetd start

Extract the update.zip and copy the files ramdisk.maint.gz.crc and ramdisk.android.gz.crc into the /tftpboot folder

execute the commands above.

For Windows, here is a TFTP server to dpwnload:
http://tftpd32.jounin.net/tftpd32_download.html

- Good luck!

Connect both the USB and the Serial cable. Run the commands in the terminal session.

When you connect, set the IP address of the new network connection to 192.168.2.100.

I forgot this step...... Sorry. In Windows, the tftp command causes a new device to be found that is an Intel null modem device. I haven't found drivers for it.
In Linux, it is automatically recognized. You just need to give it the ip address so it can communicate with the PE USB modem thingy.
