Brian Innes demonstrates how to manually reflash the firmware on an Intel Edison board.


In this video:

Because the firmware image is too large to fit on an exported drive, you must flash the firmware of your Intel Edison board manually. Brian steps you through the process, providing tips along the way. For example, be sure to use a 7-15 volt power supply instead of a USB power supply for a more reliable connection. Also, before you can flash the firmware, you must install the device firmware upgrade (DFU) utility. Brian reminds you that this process does take some time to complete, so if it finishes too quickly it probably did not complete successfully. Last step is to reconfigure your Edison with a root password, hostname, and connection to the wifi network.

Use the Intel Edison User Guide instructions for manually flashing the firmware for your OS from the Intel documentation.
