How to correct the problem with Ready/Status LED where it won´t turn green and allow communication after upgrading with BETA 5.5
This should get you back to a booting NSLU2 with rootfs on the HD.
I got the following error when trying to unsling (step 7):
I solved this by doing
After that it was possible to unsling and the NSLU2 did indeed come to life after rebooting. I was using Disk 1 so substitute sd1 with sdb1 if you are using Disk 2.
After my Disk died, I tried to unsling to a new disk. Unslinging seemed to work OK, but I got the above symptoms when I tried to reboot with the Disk1 attached and powered on at boot.
It seems that (at least with uNSLUng V5.5) the unslinging process is a one-off thing. You can only successfully unsling once after a firmware reflash. Subsequent attempts to unsling will appear to work correctly, but you will not be able to boot and get to a "ready" status from the disk.
So after multiple unslinging attempts failed. I reflashed from V5.5 to V5.5, unslung the Disk1, and the reboot from Disk1 then work correctly.
