Bricked S5 stuck on installing new firmware when restoring

Posted · Bricked S5 stuck on installing new firmware when restoring

Our S5 (R1) was bricked shortly after installing the 8.1.0 firmware (dont know if they are related) and showing the U-boot linux screen and wouldnt boot at all. I contacted support which gave a detailed instruction on how to restore it using a micro SD card.

 

With the SD-card it moved on after the linux screen and started installing new firmware as expected. However, at about 50% progress bar with a message of "2 minutes remaining" it froze. I left it alone for 1 hour until i tried rebooting it. Now every time i boot it it jumps directly to the 50% mark and freezes.

 

I have tried several different .img files with no luck.

 

Anyone got any tips on how to resolve this?

    I recommend contacting UltiMaker Support directly about this issue.
    UltiMaker does not offer official support via community posts.

    But it sounds like you might need to preform a firmware recovery.

    FYI for anyone running in to the same issue:

     

    This issue was solved by using a more recent firmware recovery image. Anything older than 7.0.3 will appareantly not repartition the harddrive automatically according to the experts 🙂.

    You were correct! A firmware recovery using newer firmware saved me.

    I am running into exactly this 50% stuck issue with the latest posted FW 8.3.1 img. Are there other images I should try and where are they?

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
