I have a prototype GCW-Zero with 256Mb of ram. For a long time I was stuck to September 2013 firmware because for some reason all update .opks failed after being run and got corrupt. After some tries I managed to get up to anti-corrupt update (gcw0-anti-corruption-update-2014-05-05.opk) but the next update (gcw0-update-2014-05-05-take2.opk) finally bricked the handheld (constant yellow screen).

And here came The Rescue CD which saved the day. Note that I used it from VirtualBox 4.3 and it worked like a charm.

I was able to reflash my prototype GCW Zero with this utility, thanks. I used my Mac Air to do it.

My disk wont allow me to select anything other than retail unit and system partition. Stupid question: since the enter button wont select the different option, what button will?

Space. I believe Enter will select only buttons.

Cheers for this rescue disc pcercuei!

Some of my Zero was a little borked after the latest update and some of the changes so I really needed to reflash it up and this did it perfect after I flashed the second time (full flash)

Just tried this out with "Linux Live USB Creator" for Windows and worked fine, It doesn't recognize the distro (as it shouldn't) and uses the default settings but had no problem!

Just wanted to list my thanks here too - managed to get my GCW functioning properly, and realise that I've got MORE than 2GB's worth of SD space.

Thanks for the program! :D

Yeah, it (gmenu2x) shows how much space is left, not how much space is used.

Yea that was Lash's problem :P he had something like 1756MB / 1993MB or something like that rather than the normal xxGB/14.5GB :P

Some mess up when they flashed it in the factory I expect :P

It would be useful to have a new Rescue Disc release (v0.4) which can directly flash the latest OpenDingux release (2014-08-20).

Hi!

I've been trying to reflash my GCW, but I keep getting an error.
It starts flashing, and gets to a part that says:

filename=/usr/share/od-rescue-cd/images/system.bin, addr-0x01000000, check=0
bus 005 dev 005: pid 4770
last_block_len 512
block_nums 144790
last_download_block_num 480
download_times 142 :

after that, it goes red and says "ERROR! Flashing failed!"

Anyone know what could be wrong, and how I could fix this?

Try with a different cable and/or a different PC, the software on the disc has problems with some USB adapters.

I've tried different computers, different cables, burned the disc aswell as convert it to a bootable usb, but it always fails at the same spot, over and over.

What firmware version are you running right now? Maybe your trying to flash the newest version of the os over an older build which might be causing the issue?

As a last resort due to possible problems with breaking wires and such, maybe try taking out the micro sd card from the zero and formatting it through windows first then putting it back in the zero and re-flashing it?
