    I bricked my Brix (yes, indeed it is a good name for it). I am trying to revive it first with some rescue procedure but so far I have been unsuccessful.

    Has anyone heard or has anyone successfully de-bricked a Brix? If so, I would really appreciate to get the proper rescue procedure. I tried the AMI procedure described about everywhere without any success (tried AMIBOOT.ROM as well as AMI.ROM). I don't even know if the USB ports are initialized or not; power is there but a Ducky Shine 3 won't change LED patterns; it stays dark.

    In a case nobody has ever been able to revive a unit; I would be looking for a complete dump of the flash (either software or I can even buy the programmed flash; I don't mind).

    Are firmware update files a direct copy of the flash? Seems to be the proper size though.

    My last resort is to buy another unit; dump the flash and try to get a refund if possible or sell it afterwards.

    Many thanks,
