I just got my 8908w clone from dx yesterday, I attempted to flash to the latest foscam firmware and ended up bricking it.

I hooked up the jtag. It looks like I have the one with the smaller flash/ram.

W90P745 Boot Loader [ Version 1.1 $Revision: 1 $ ] Rebuilt on Aug 19 2009
Memory Size is 0x1000000 Bytes, Flash Size is 0x200000 Bytes

I started following the directions to recover it (11.14.1.37). I was able to flash the main and linux.zip no problem. rebooted fine. Then I tried loading the webui through the ipcam tool. It loaded, but the ipcam tool never saw it again. I rebooted the camera and it pops back up in the ipcamtool, but still says no webui detected. I tried updating it again, and watched the terminal this time. Right after flashing, some stuff pops up in the terminal then this code pops up and locks up the camera.

"Code: 4282c004 4a00001b (e4913004) e4a03004 e1a0ca00 "

I tried web versions from 2.4.8.8 - 2.4.8.14

I tried for hours last night trying various firmwares and addresses. Has anyone successfully flashed a 8908 with the smaller memory/flash?
If so, what address and firmware did you use?

which SKU did you order? I'm thinking of ordering a camera from DX and ideally would want one with a bigger flash. So a SKU would help to possibly avoid this one?

Thank you.
