Hello!

I run into problems trying to bring my pogoplug B01 up to date with pacman command. Now when I run the script to revert to original software by WarheadsSE, the script complains that it can not find mtd file:

open mtd: No such file or directory

I guess I inadvertently removed or renamed this file when the pacman command did not proceed. How do I recreate mtd file so that I can revert my pogoplug to original state?

TIA,
Nhut

Unpack a fresh tarball onto an appropriately formatted thumb drive, reboot.

Search for yourself, and you need to mount the ubifs, and grab the file.

Perfect, problem solved. (but this is not helpful for the others) :(

When the problem is solved, i think is better to explain the solutions, in this case is all in this post:

When I tried to run the oxnas-revert.sh script as root I get "permission denied" error.

How is it even possible to be denied something as root :?:
