MC7304 Trouble down-grading firmware


#1

Hello,
Using SLQS04.00.16 / QMI S2.34N2.53, I have updated my firmware to version SWI9X15C_05.05.78.00
I am now trying to down-grade firmware with version SWI9X15C_05.05.16.02 (generic .spk)
Error message is the folowing:
[root@netbox-163048001 /root] ./fwdldhosti686 -s /opt/sierra/bin/slqssdk -d 9x15 -p ./FIRMWARE Detecting USB of the target DONE Communicating with the target DONE Switching to firmware download mode ....DONE Downloading the firmware ...............ERROR: Firmware Download failed. Callback status 59399DONE ERROR: Firmware Download Failed [root@netbox-163048001 /root]

What is the trouble ?

@bsouben,

Couple of questions.

  • What is the actual file you are using?
  • Are you doing this using a virtual machine?
  • What arch are you using as you have not specified it above
  • Can you send the below commands to the unit to give a baseline?
    ati
    at!gstatus?
    at!priid?
  • Can you send the below commands to a terminal when the unit is plugged in and enumerated?
    uname -r
    ls /dev
    ls -l /dev/qcqmi*
    lsusb
    lsmod

Regards

Matt

My response has been visibly spamed by Akismet…

@bsouben,

Doesn’t matter, it has given me enough information, to be honest, I cannot see why it is failing, all of the drivers, devices permissions, files being used, SDK, etc all look good. Does the unit upgrade/downgrade successfully when plugging it into another system be it Windows or Linux (Windows would give the best indication using the one click updater)?

Regards

Matt
