New Method to Restore a Nano

Postby Fox » Thu Jun 04, 2015 12:20 pm

Hello all,

There is a wonderful new way to fix and restore Nanos without having to use a flash drive! For all of those who received their Nano with firmware and GUI version 1.8 and above, this method has already been setup and will work with no extra steps. For those who received their Nano with 1.7 and below, here is a few steps to take to enable this recovery method on your Nano. If you don't remember what version your Nano came with, then you should also do these steps to ensure that you have a restore point to restore your Nano to.

For version 1.7 and below:

1. Go to the website of your Nano
2. Click the Settings button
3. Click the Advance Settings button at the bottom of the page
4. Scroll down until you see the Create Restore Point button
5. Wait for it to finish and click the Home button when it appears

Now you should have a good restore point to restore to if your Nano should ever be bricked

For version 1.8 and above and those who did the previous steps
To restore your printer if it is bricked or to restore just your print profiles, follow these steps:

1. Unplug the power cable from your printer
2. Plug the power cable back in
3. Wait for the white lights to come one and if you want to do a full restore, immediately press and hold the UP, DOWN, and PRINT buttons until the screen says Restoring All. If you want to restore just your print profiles, immediately press and hold the UP and PRINT buttons until it says Restoring JSON. If the screen says Booting...Please Wait, then it did not do a restore and you should start again from step 1.
4. After it displays the appropriate message, release all of the buttons and wait for the Nano to start. It may take a few minutes.
5. Once it does its light show and the print button is blinking blue, your Nano is ready and restored.

Hope this helps
