I will point to a almost similar solution here in this forum - just saw it: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Iomega-Desktop-Network-Storage/Iomega-IX4-200d-Boot-Loop/td-p/3318086/page/2

Then, there is another solution that gave me the following statements for writing the nand from scratch:
setenv initrd_size 0x2f0000
saveenv
tftpboot 0x2000000 zImage
tftpboot 0x12000000 initrd
nand erase 0x2d4000 0x2f000
nand erase 0xb0000 0x224000
nand write.e 0x12000000 0x2d4000 0x2f0000
nand write.e 0x2000000 0x0b0000 0x224000
reset

The keypoint was to delete all existing partitions and to have the USB-Stick ready in the device with the emctools-folder on it. After entereing the reset-command, the NAS reboots and starts to search for an operating system, but cannot find any. So it starts to check USB for boot-files and copies them over to the one disk (without any partitions on it!) we installed. After that, the unit will just power off. Now fill up the unit with the other 3 empty disks and restart it. You can connect it to the normal network then and access it via browser. Just confirm the overwriting of the disks and give it the time needed to prepare the raid. Done.

Hello,

I'm reviving my Iomega ix4 200d.  I understand that i need the firmware and to install it on at least one of the drives, is that correct?  Where do I download the firmware.  My operating system is Mac.  Thank you.

Tim

Hi timothybrooks,
it's not a shame to use a Mac - just a joke... :-)
You can follow the link in my post above to get all the files needed to unbrick your NAS. Just read my post and / or follow the links I provided. You should be able to solve this issue. Additionally, tell us, where you fail to get further help!
Most of us don't own a cristall ball... :-)
