if you can send me the A05 file, that would be more than enoughI followed the instructions exactly from the original link he sent me once I found the right A05 bios. I formatted the thumb drive fat32 and just copied the one renamed file to it. I plugged the USB in the eSate(NOT USB SLOT), held down the end button and powered it on. It beeped about 10 minutes I think before it rebooted and came back to life. And, since MattyB was so helpful to me, I'd be willing to pay it forward and send you the thumb drive if you want. Lemme know.
Where is says FreeDOS, is there an option for an ISO? It could be that the USB isn't set right. Did you rename the file to M17R4.hdr? Also make sure that the battery isn't connected.
