Success.

With FT40 ATJ1 I was able to downgrade also the Bootloader sboot.bin:
COMBINATION-FT40_R500XXU1ATJ1.tar. md5

All things alive and working... like BT and WiFi...

Now flashing again ETI1... to have all parts valid for FOTA Action... later...
And/or to rebuild ETL2 files.. BL part...

Best Regards

Jak nastavím FOTA zpět na aktivaci 1? Musím nahrát FW ATJ zpět? Nechci nic kombinovat, ale chci mít například, stejně jako na mém S10 + fw XEZ, chci to na svých hodinkách. Právě jsem nahrál OXA a nejde to FOTA.

netcat working...
Later if 4 GB eMMC dump is finished I can take the missing files with help of partition layout... aka PIT from here for instance:

If nothing bad happens...
IMHO I need 1 or 2 days to test and upload the missing BL files for ETL2...

Best Regards

@cardi77

You can wait for what ever you want.

For me it is working.

I am successfully moved from ETL2 to FUB5 via FOTA update... after flashing all 3 files for ETL2.
CSC used XAR

Code:
AP_R500XXU1ETL2_usr.tar.md5
CSC_OXA_R500OXA1ETL2_usr.tar.md5
from here:


Code:
BL_rebuild_smR500_ETL2_v2.tar
from here:

So we have now FULL ETL2 for repair attempts...

Best Regards

Attached is ZIP...
BL_rebuild_smR500_ETL2_v2.zip

Now use Tool like 7zip to unpack TAR file inside...
BL_rebuild_smR500_ETL2_v2.tar

NOT unpack TAR.

Ignore it is no tar.md5
I am tooo lazy to add MD5 Hash...

    I have screwed up, I flashed via NetOdin ETL2 without BL because it was missing on the ZIP I downloaded. What should I do now?


    Have you managed to fix it? I flashed it without BL and I am getting that Failed to run soft AP: -1 error.
    Nope, I tried to soldering an usb cable but it failed, so I just wanna try with a 6pin connector

    @jorgine23


    Your result sounds you flashed WITHOUT BL...
    ?
    Is this correct? So instead 3 from 3 files you flashed only 2 of 3...

    Code:
    wd_cm_setup_ap: Failed to run soft AP: -1

    This seems only repairable with USB cable... to flash with Odin instead netOdin...
    If you need USB Pinout... look somewhere here IMHO:

    Best Regards
    I just uploaded the fw using the Weareble app, not using NetOdin. I read some cases where if you flashed only 2 files like you said, the watch was bricked, but using the official app.. I don't know why this happens.
