Re: boot loader not working after reboot host - more info

It sounds that you haven't put the board in boot mode properly.
Can you access the board using HTTP when you believe you have
it in boot mode?
(In that case it isn't in boot mode)
Make  sure you release the reset button (led turns on) before
you release the boot button. The buttons are marked 'R' and 'B'
on the PCB.
