Safe Mode issues - haunted by the ghost of an M1001

Mon Mar 25, 2019 1:17 pm

Reviving a super old dead thread...

https://forums.roku.com/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=33960

I was never able to get my M1001 to boot, and hesitated to bug forum members about it... and then eight years went by  :shock:

The ghost of my M1001 came by the other day as I was cleaning out the closet and tapped me on the shoulder.

I'd love to know if anyone can help get it working.  It does exactly the same as previous:

1.  Pulls a DHCP address via wired ethernet just fine.
2.  Boots with ROKUsafemode logo showing f/w 2.44
3.  Will allow a factory Reset, reboots, shows same logo
4.  Only other option is to update, which it starts, then fails with message
        "FAILED TO CONTACT SERVER - Check Network Connections?"   YES <NO>
5.  Checking connections shows as good - IP, subnet mask, gateway, and DNS all as they should be.
6.  Unit does not accept a telnet connection on Port 23

Does anyone have any suggestions for why it won't see the update server, which, I believe, should still be online?

Thanks!

I don't think the update server is online and has not been for a while.

Uggh, then I guess I'm going to be selling a mint M1001 for parts...

Hello Guys,

Has this company gone out of business then?

Thanks Glen
