RX300 device has a firmware recovery mode (firmware version 3.1.3 or newer) that
can recover the corresponding images in case the firmware gets corrupted. Hopefully
you will never have to use this. If you do, please follow the steps below to
enter the firmware recovery mode.
The RX300 firmware recovery image is Linux-kernel-specific,
so depending on the last RX300 firmware version that was installed on the
corrupted RX300, there will be different recovery images.
The table below summarizes the mapping between the last
installed RX300 firmware version on the corrupted device to the corresponding
firmware recovery package version:
Look closely to the different firmware versions offered below. In order for the recovery to be efficient and avoid further possible issues, we recommend using the firmware image that is closest to the version installed in your device. Once you recover the unit, you can update the device to the latest firmware as desired.
