Hello all,

I am currently running AP2-R090-L009-W016-ZW016-ZB005 and want to update to R093.
If done from the device interface, the update downloads, and then starts updating, restarts when it reaches 30%, and then comes back with the same version after the reboot.
If done from the web UI, the update upload works, SHA confirms, and then it restarts within seconds, and again, comes back with the same version.
If done from command line with sysupgrade:


# sysupgrade -i -v AP2-R093-L009-W016-ZW016-ZB005

And it comes back again with R090. I do see someone mentionning manually writing the flash from another device... but I do not have any other device available.

Would anyone have an idea?

For what's it's worth(an posterity):
* Got in touch with Securifi Support who "confirmed" it being an issue with the unit(I assume it's a nand issue)
* Still tried to use the unit, but eventually it died... connecting through serial I see that even the uboot blocks got corrupted...
* Securifi said they can't help as the unit is 4 years old(yay a kickstarter unit), but they could propose me to get an Almond 3S package(which I haven't yet decided on).

If someone does have an almond+ with serial port and a kermit, could you give me a dump of your nand?(at least the uboot partition which should be the first MB or so)
I have a NAND Flasher and would be happy to just swap the nand chip with a new NAND and copy the right data to it.
