New firmware in a bricked Sonoff?

I recently purchased some Sonoff modules and I love them! They work very well and aren't too difficult to get set up. Unfortunately I had one module crash during the update process. Is it possible to upload replacement firmware directly? Thanks, Jon

Hi Jon, do you mean you have one Sonoff broken during the upgrade process? Since I don't quit good at technique, I will ask our IT staff to follow up this issue. It would be very helpful if you provide more details. Thanks.

I have similar problems with 2 - 3 Sonoff Basic and one Sonoff RF.  Upon losing incoming power the RF device has to be actually physically disconnected for several days before it can be used again. The Basic devices simply won't link up with absolutely any WiFi whatsoever. Only thing that works are the button switches.


sorry for my poor english

I have the same issue, what Jon probably also has (error during 3rd party firmware upgrade)...

Now the unit seems to be bricked so no LED at all at any activity. 

So the question is: Is there a way to restore some firwire to the SONOFF unit without beeing able to put it into firmware update mode (pushing HW switch during powering up...)?
