After Firmware Upgrade system wont turn on or off. Rg350M
« on: June 10, 2020, 09:10:06 pm »
Hello,
I tried to upgrade my firmware to 1.51. When the system went through its processes. It did not reboot itself. The power light was green but the screen was black. I waited 30 minutes and powered down. After powering back up, the screen is still black. While the power light is green. Now the unit will not power down at all. The power light is just green all the time. Any suggestions on how to turn it off. And how I can re-apply the firmware?

Hi,

I also found myself in a situation where the rg350m wouldn't reboot. Here's how I got out:

Note that this will reset all your internal settings, games saves, and all.

1. make sure to backup your internal SD card (or try this on a new one)
2. Use Balena Etcher or similar to write this image to your _internal_ SD card : https://rs97.bitgala.xyz/RG350M/Stock%20Firmware/sd_image.7z
3. Now the rg350m should reboot from this image (it'll take a while on the first boot because it has to resize partitions)
4. You can then update a later version using this : https://drive.google.com/file/d/1fI-sePexfwJgKJBHSPAeBD8MgKCgrjAn/view

Make sure you try this on a blank SD card, or that you have a backup of your internal SD card.

Good luck !

Happened to me too, was trying to install Rogue and later CFW on it, but only saw later that they won't work on the M model, shame.

Btw, is there any CFW out for the M model yet?
