Sounds like you've followed the process to the letter.
The device is in maskrom mode, did you force that, or did that happen by itself?
If self, try another version of the tool.
Also, just to try, try erasing using an Android 6 version first.
Answering your question - The device is in maskrom mode, did you force that, or did that happen by itself? - (The device was automatically detected as a MaskROM device)
You were spot on with your recommendations. I was able to connect the SoM as a Loader Device with AndroidTool_Release_v2.43 (I was using v2.69 earlier). I then tried flashing sdupdate-A8-Kumarai.img but it failed at "Murex Reset Device" step.
Next I tried flashing it with Android 6.0 as per your second recommendation and the process succeeded 100%.
With Android 6.0, the SoM was recognised as a Loader Device. I then tried flashing it again with sdupdate-A8-Kumarai.img, hoping to get to Android 8.0 and it failed.
The SoM is now again stuck as a MaskROM device and none of the RKDev tool versions (tried with v2.43 / v2.58 / v2.69) are recognising it as a loader device.
Request your recommendation again to find a way out of this situation and get the SoM detected as a Loader Device.
Thanks in advance.
