RoboRIO not imaging

Solved!

Hi Robotheosis,

 

Couple of things we should try before the usb recovery method (since you shouldn't need the password to complete a firmware upgrade):

* Using the imaging tool (not MAX) to format and then update firmware on the target - https://docs.wpilib.org/en/stable/docs/zero-to-robot/step-3/imaging-your-roborio.html#imaging-the-ro... 

* safe mode - https://docs.wpilib.org/en/stable/docs/software/roborio-info/recovering-a-roborio-using-safe-mode.ht...

 

Also, when you say the default password, you mean blank, right?

Hi, thanks for that. What's strange is in safe mode it's still asking for a password — I've tried multiple times. I have used the imaging tool, the problem is I can't image without updating firmware, the RoboRIO is so old (version 2-ish) and it says minimum version is 5.0-ish to reformat, so I'm sort of stuck. Need to update firmware but that asks for password, again even in safe mode.

 

By default I do mean blank yes. I've also done admin admin, root admin, admin password, all that basic stuff.

 

Thanks so much for your reply. This is a frustrating problem. Everyone on the team who was around during this RoboRIO's use is long gone.

hello thanks for the reply. Robrio 2.0. I tried everything for 3 days, unfortunately it doesn't work.
