Wrong .npk filename for firmware bricks the device

Mon Jan 13, 2020 9:25 am

Hi!
If you happen to download the firmware twice so you get for example a routeros-arm-6.46.1 (1).npk, upload that to the router and reboot. Then system halts before loading kernel. Netinstall is required to bring the device back to life. I think the device should either handle the extra characters or simply don't try to load the file.

Kind regards
David

You need to send this to support@mikrotik.com. This is a customer forum; some MT guys hang out here, but it’s far from a surefire way to get your bug report submitted and tracked.
