    Bricked GO 920 - Any hope?

    I inserted an SD card in a GO 920 not realizing it contained a system file with a higher bootloader. The next time I started the TT it immediately bricked. All I've got is the green light. No start-up screen. Reset doesn't work. Can't connect to a PC. Any hope or do I toss the TT and file this under lesson learned?

    Hey Yuriyggg, what happened to your panda? I'd love to try your suggestion, but it won't power on so I can't connect to a PC. Holding down the power button for several seconds doesn't work. Neither does a 30 second hard reset. All I can get is the green power light when it's plugged in via USB. It was working perfectly prior to the "SD card bootloader" incident.

    Yes, tried the 30 sec hard reset without the SD card. No response. The PC cannot see the device--unknown or otherwise. Completely dead except for the little green light when plugged in. I was running SE navcore 9.135 and North America 860.3101 from onboard memory at the time.

    I have to think there's a way to clear and re-flash the bootloader chip, assuming you knew what to do and had the right equipment. Has anyone heard of someone successfully doing this?
