ix4-300d bricked during firmware upgrade (Version 4.1.414.34909 - Release Date 03/06/2020)

2020-03-09, 9:49 AM

I have an ix4-300d which bricked itself trying to update to the latest firmware (Version 4.1.414.34909 - Release Date 03/06/2020).  Can anyone send me the instructions and a link to the software to create a USB boot loader so I can re-flash the firmware?  Researching online told me that support are the only ones that can provide this and there isn't much info on any official sites.

Hello,

 

Sorry, I cannot directly help you with your specific bricked NAS issue.

 

But I am also be interested by the USB Boot loader.

 

The main reason is because the Lenovo support will stop at the end of March 2020 !!

 

How will we deal with potential issues after that? if we do not have the USB Boot loader in our possession?

 

I just bought two px2-300d, and I would like to get the USB Boot loader too, to be able to unbrick it of necessary.

 

In the Lenovo firmware update page the red message tell us: "Technical support, service, and security updates for this device will end March 31, 2020" !!

 

I am very scared now to have the same issue as yours in the future and to cannot resolve it by my own (without Lenovo Support).

I do not want to have a non usable, and expensive NAS with all my backups inside of it!!

 

I hope that advanced users will help you with your bricked NAS and, in the meantime help me and help others users with the same issue.

 

Alexandre

Hello Grimzentide,

 

Could you tell me if you get some help in another forum?

If yes, could you please share with us a link of it?

 

I really need also this USB bootloader.

 

I hope that you will get answers to your issue, in this forum or in another one.

 

Alexandre

I was able to find the latest imager for the IX4-300D here -> https://download.lenovo.com/nasupdate/asgimage/h4c-4.1.414.34909.zip

 

Hope it helps!

Hello T-M-S,

 

Thank you very much for your message. 

I am downloading the .zip file of your shared link (https://download.lenovo.com/nasupdate/asgimage/h4c-4.1.414.34909.zip).

 

But I do not know if the files will be compatible with the Lenovo px2-300d (the one I have). 

 

I cannot find the direct link for the px2-300d, also if I try to open one of these links https://download.lenovo.com/nasupdate/asgimage/ or https://download.lenovo.com/nasupdate/ or https://download.lenovo.com/ I cannot, I have the error: 403 - Forbidden: Access is denied.

 

If there is any Lenovo support person on this forum, could you please help us, by telling us where we are able to download the direct link to download the USB-Updater for the px2-300d and for the other Lenovo NAS (to help the others, who have other Lenovo NAS).

 

Thanks again to you T-M-S, I hope also a reply from the Lenovo support.

 

Alexandre

Hi Purchaser,

 

I think what you're looking for (imager for the px2-300d) is here -> https://download.lenovo.com/nasupdate/asgimage/b2a-4.1.414.34909.zip

 

FYI, the latest firmware for your device, as seen here (http://download.lenovo.com/lenovoemc/na/en/app/answers/detail/a_id/32094.html) is 
http://download.lenovo.com/nas/lifeline/b2a-4.1.414.34909.tgz

 

You'll notice that there is a pattern there ;-)

Hi T-M-S,

 

Thank you very, very, very much. I am downloading all files to save them carefully.

 

I hope I will never have to use it, but I am more confident now in case I a brick my device in the future.

 

Thank you again and again.

Good things for you and for all around you.

 

Alexandre
