Firmware updating failed
This rescue functions can be used to recover a failed flash update (no matter if the failed flash was vendor firmware or Open Wrt) or recover from an otherwise dead device, as long as the device hardware and the rescue function is still intact.These rescue partitions do consume a tiny piece of the flash, but renders a device mostly unbrickable.Follow up with a speaker Factory Reset and new Setup as described in here.Please contact Customer Support here if you are not able to complete the firmware update successfully.is not applied to flash ROM, but installed on a removable drive, e.g. For recovery, mount the removable drive in a working PC and reapply the Open Wrt image to the removable drive according to the device-specific instructions.Supported by several devices at least of the following vendors: D-Link, TP-Link, ZBTLink This function is based on extra code in the boot partition in the flash ROM and it is still available on the device, even after the device has been flashed to Open Wrt.My data is spread over a range of storage areas which include NAS RAID, there is usually three places where all data exists which includes the fault tolerant storage under RAID.But yes, hard disks do fatigue over time and are prone to failure.
If you really do have a 1st Gen Time Capsule, it is a miracle that it is still working. If you value the data on the Time Capsule, and you do not have a copy of all that data on another backup drive.......would be a good time to consider doing this. So yes I do have a 1st Gen Time Capsule and it is still working, not sure why that might be questioned?
A usage strategy could be, to install Open Wrt only into one of the 2 partitions and leave the vendor firmware in the other partition.
No further tools are required to toggle between the two partitions.
