Hi there, recently got my LimeSDR mini, and was using it for a while under Linux.
Unfortunately, when I used the LimeUtil --update command, it failed to update.
It gave a 0% output under Linux when trying to flash, and then just died.
I have no red or green lights anymore, and have not found a way to flash it back to life (via software).
I self compiled my own version of LimeSuite under Linux, this did not help at all.
I have tried using images downloaded manually, but alas nothing works.
I eventually got around to using a Windows machine, not a VM, and when I try and use LimeQuickTest to no avail.
Every time I select connect (under Windows) on the LimeSuiteGUI it freezes, until I remove the LimeSDR Mini, same with the quick test tool. When I remove the device, the log is populated with a constant output of “ERROR: Read(64 bytes) failed”
Under Ubuntu 18.04, I get “ERROR: Read(64 bytes) failed” again.
The device is detected by both Windows and Linux but Device Info is not populated, only with 0’s and UNKNOWN.
Will I need to do an FPGA flash over JTAG to recover this, or should I just RMA it…
I have tried most other solutions discussed in other posts, but none have worked so far.
I have made sure that the device has always been in a powered USB 3 port, and displays as such in the GUI and CLI of each software. Even changing Windows machines that stated USB 2 on the connection menu.
The FTDI FT601 USB 3.0 Bridge is still detected under Windows, so I do not think it is that. Some help would be really appreciated.
Also, my board revision is 1.2 if that helps.
