  • There are several people on Intel’s forum with this same problem from this guide, I’m very surprised you can’t replicate the issue. The install process completely finished on mine it restarted twice and I even left it plugged in over night (just cause I’m lazy and feel asleep with it plugged in), that’s why I think windows 8 corrupted it. It was definitely the kernel being corrupted.

  • It showed up as a uart FTDI connection, When at the “ Ready to receive application ” running the run do-flash command but rescue mode was corrupted do to the corrupt kernel (which has something to do with windows 8 or the Lenovo, I think windows antivirus or firewall blocked or hung up something corrupting it) I had to use xfst and change the device id in the flashall.sh file, while quickly hitting the reset button, just to fix recovery mode or rescue mode which ever it is. I had to spend $30 to get a hard drive to run linux on since xfst only works on 32bit linux (not happy about that at all). Once it was fixed it allowed the flashall.sh in the terminal. It is impossible to fix with windows.

  • I tried using the instructions as they are written. The part about walking a for a few minutes was my error! Why would you recommend for people to walk away , when they return there is no way to know if it finished! i waited till the next morning to unplug it. I still think it was a bad idea to post this when there is no way to know when its done and no way to cancel it or reflash to stock. After going to Intel’s forum, I’m not the only one this happened to and there is no fix as of yet. p.s. its a Lenovo ultrabook, running windows 8

  • After playing with putty a bit, I was able to find out it’s the kernel immage that won’t load. the device is still in dfu but there is no driver to do a flashall. putty is stuck trying to autoboot, once canceled it still has the option to enter a boot command. Any idea how to load the kernel image, or get it back to stock and out of dfu?

  • THANKS FOR BRICKING MY EDISON, WHY POST A GUIDE THAT CAN DESTROY THE DEVICE?

  • I think I will stick with this http://www.adafruit.com/products/1150 $25 one from adafruit.

  • I love that they mention the most common question is about how it hooks up, but NEVER TELL HOW TO HOOK IT UP!

  • This would be great for the prosthetic arm I’d like to build for myself.

  • Is this the servo for the mechanical claw you sell?

  • is it made by Alps?

No public wish lists :(
