well, such is my current situation. black screen, blue ring, that's it. no recovery mode. shows as 'PortalPlayer device' under PuppyLinux when placed in manufacturing mode -- and yes, 'libusb' is installed. tried running e200tool from root to no avail. yes i have the SD...rom file. so, that said... does anyone have the i2c for an e270 or any other suggestions? honestly, i'm not even exactly sure what that might do, but from these forums i've gleaned that to be the solution. thanks in advance.
okay... finally found the device (had to set Permissions to executable/searchable), but is now timing out
Initializing USB stub (4780 bytes)
Bulk write error (-110, Connection timed out)
gonna keep crackin away at it.
