What firmware version are you running right now? Maybe your trying to flash the newest version of the os over an older

I think that when you flash a GCW Zero the previous firmware installed is irrelevant.

PS. @ Dr. Tails: obviously you remembered to start the device in USB boot mode (select+hold powerslider up), am I right?

Probably a new release of the Rescue CD that contains the latest firmware will be very useful.
Practically is the best and faster way to recover the GCW.

For those who are struggling to create a mac bootable USB rescue disk on mac os X, I used the instructions here (from step 3 onwards):
http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop/create-a-usb-stick-on-mac-osx

Other methods tried and failed on my machine (15-in Macbook Pro 2012, OSX Yosemite):

  • unetbootin: currently, the mac version of unetbootin cannot create mac bootable usb linux disks
  • disk utility: failed to restore iso to usb volume
  • dd iso: disk was unreadable

If the gcw-zero.com website is down, you can use this mirror of the ISO I've hosted:

Yes, it will work. You don't need to format the memory card. The CD-rom will flash a basic filesystem to the SD card, which will expand to the full capacity of the card at the first boot (which will take a bit longer than usual).

Thanks what if I was to use the rescue CD and put the target firmware in a USB card reader instead of the GCW internal just to flash to a new card and put it back in when done will this work? And last question can we use the rescue CD on a CD or DVD and will they work with Windows 10? Thanks for all the help.

When I put my original 16gb card back in boots just fine any help would be appreciated thanks.
