I hope I'm asking this in the right place, but I've screwed up with my BA NAS 110. I installed a custom distro of Debian Lenny (using Hajo Noerenberg's tutorial) and everything was working fine. One day, out of pure curiosity, I decided to check out the contents of different nand partitions, so I tried to mount the different partitions (mount -t jffs2 /dev/mtdblock... /temp/nand). At first, I got some errors about an unreadable sector, and the only partition that I was able to mount successfully was mtdblock5 which contained some patches by Hajo. Later, the mount command worked and did't return any errors, but the directory where the NAND partition was supposed to be mounted was empty. When I turned the NAS off and tried to turn it on again, it was unable to boot. When I connect it to the power adapter, both the leds just glow orange. This led me to think that I must have screwed something up when trying to mount the NAND partitions - I either specified a wrong filesystem type for the mount or the NAS won't boot as a result of me forgetting to unmount one NAND partition before shutting the device down. So my question is - since I have a nanddump.img available, is it possible to somehow reflash the NAND with that image? If I hooked the device up to a serial console, would I be able to tftp the img to the NAND somehow? I also thought about desoldering the NAND chip, but I don't know how I could possibly flash the image to the chip like that.
I'd greatly appreciate any replies,
