bricked? Help me out of a pickle?

I was attempting to flash alt-f onto a DNS-323 B1 D-Link NAS and somehow ended up on a website walking me through installing Debian. I'm all turned around and am looking to either progress forward or recover back to the default firmware...

Right now I'm using PuTTY on Windows to communicate with the NAS. I always get the Debian install menu and the busybox v1.22.1 command line stuff works. When I go through the installer, I get to a long list of options asking what to do next. Almost everything I do results in it just going to the blank blue screen and not actually doing anything else. I have the original NAS firmware file for v1.08 and the alt-f .bin and .sha1 files but don't know how I can use any of it where I stand. I figured out how to format, mount, and access files on one of the drives using Busybox if that helps.

I'm tech saavy but obviously this is my first time doing any of this if you can walk me though how to get out of this mess?

Here you can find instructions how to flash a kernel and a initramfs. But first check if the parition layout hasn't changed. You can see that with

Code:

cat /proc/mtd

Re: bricked? Help me out of a pickle?

Thanks for the info...

Here's the result:


~ # cat /proc/mtd
dev:    size   erasesize  name
mtd0: 00010000 00002000 "MTD1"
mtd1: 00010000 00010000 "MTD2"
mtd2: 00180000 00010000 "Linux Kernel"
mtd3: 00630000 00010000 "File System"
mtd4: 00030000 00010000 "u-boot"

Re: bricked? Help me out of a pickle?

My magic spreadsheet converted that to

mtd0    65536    8192    MTD1
mtd1    65536    65536    MTD2
mtd2    1572864    65536    Linux Kernel
mtd3    6488064    65536    File System
mtd4    196608    65536    u-boot

which has the same sizes as the partitions in the wiki. So if you have a valid kernel and initramfs, I assume it's safe to flash it.
