Summary of the problem:
- after update to wrong firmware the capacity went from 2GB to 1GB.
- only 1GB firmware booted well
- with 1GB firmware only one of two NAND chips was accessible

whole problem description:

The problem was that the second NAND flash chip contained wrong data.
But I found the way how to erase both chips and load the firmware to the clean memory.

The chip can be erased by special SCSI command.
1.) Get the SCSI Utility from
2.) Connect the player to PC and initiate the Recovery Mode with that works (in my case it was 1GB firmware v006.003.260)
3.) Run the SCSI Utility and press F5 to refresh list of connected devices
4.) Right-click on the player in the list and choose "Execute Custom CDB"
5.) Then fill the table with these values:
Code: › BYTE 0: c0
BYTE 1: 7
BYTE 2: 0
BYTE 3: 0
BYTE 4: 0
BYTE 5: 0

Other cells leave blank, so the CDB Size will be 6.
(Values are in the hexadecimal form.)
6.) Then press Execute, accept the warning and wait a moment (10 sec.).

Now the first chip is clean.
The problem is that when you have 2 chips.
You must do a "reconnection" in order to access the second chip. But don't worry, it isn't so hard as it sounds. Wink
1.) You must disassemble the player
2.) Check the NAND chip (there is only one physical flash chip, but it consists of 2 separate logical chips)
3.) Google the datasheet for you memory chip.
4.) Now you must short-cut (make a connection) the CE1 (Chip Enable 1) pin to Vcc=3.3V (if it is the specific voltage for 'logical one') to disable the first chip.
5.) Short-cut the CE2 (Chip Enable 2) pin to Vss=0V (GND) to enable the second chip.
6.) Do the erase process with the SCSI Utility again, now with the second chip.
7.) Remove the wires (the shortage).

Now you can boot (initiate Recovery Mode) with the 2GB and flash the 2GB firmware (select the Format Data Area in the flasher utility).

This is how I did it. Now I have whole 2GB of capacity back.
Maybe it should be enough to erase only the first chip. I have erased both and it works.

Example NAND flash datasheet:

Complete list of SCSI commands:
Code: ›  
byte 0:
byte 1:
GET_STATUS                  0x01
ALLOCATE_MEDIA              0x06
GET_CHIP_ID                 0x30
CHIP_RESET                  0x31

If you have any questions, please ask. If you really want I can take some photos of the process.

I have a SigmaTel MSCN Lavod Mp4 player
Its is 1 cm thin. black, has a 4/3 screen, a round pad with really odd simbols.

The problem is that the memory (2GB) can not be found anymore. not by the player itself nor by the PC.

These firmware tricks are cool and all. but how can you apply them when you can't go into the directories needed?

Thanks for the guide...

I have a mp4 watch 2gb like this...

MP4 Watch Link

I desperately need the firmware for this watch, as mine is dead, it recognizes as flash disk and when I put it in recovery mode it shows STMP3500 (I believe this is the chip in this watch)

If anyone has this watch can you please extract the firmware and send it to me?

Hi Th3_uN1Qu3!
I have a Tangent Jukebox 256MB MP3 Player, LIKE THIS.
Based on Sigmatel STMP 3502 L100E-CA6 chip with board nr. 500SF V1.9
I am not able to switch it on, but when i connect it to USB port, Win finds it as Sigmatel MSCN USB Device. On the players display appears the FW version: 2.600.100
It appears also in My Computer as Removable Disk, but i'm unable to access it, gives some I/O error.
Could You please guide me what to do, and provide some firmware.
Thank You, regards.

I have found a Fw with version 2.600.100
I did the upgrade, windows recognized as mass storage device, but now nothing appears on LCD, nor I cant switch it on.
I found another similar fw version 2. 611.101, but after update my player almost died completely. I was not able to put in recovery mode anymore, no matter how long i kept pressed the play button, nothing.
I was absolutely sure, that it was completely dead. In my desperation i've tried everithing, and with a huge luck, dont know how tho, i've started the FW download tool, and while it was searching for a device, i made the recovery procedure, and it came back alive again. I uploaded again the 2.600.100 fw, and works as a mass storage device.
I still need some help please, if somebody has a similar player, or knows some link.
Which of the files are for the play mode? Coz i dont want to mess anymore with the other ones.

Even though the firmware is modular, i could never get files from different firmware packages to work together.

If you have tried all firmware posted above or in the site's download section and none works, i'm afraid you're out of luck.

I've had a Meizu M6SL for almost an year and love it. I've given my Sigmatel player to my mom, and she only uses it as a voice recorder. It's been a while since i last played with it, and i remember spending a lot of time searching while i was messing around - firmware for those players is very hard to find, and in the end it's not really worth it.

I'm sorry i can't help you more.

For my dreams i hold my life...

MEIZU M6SL Cool <> black <> 4GB <> 2.4 inch TFT <> Touchpad <> XviD 20FPS <> 25 hours battery (music) <> Wolfson DAC Very Happy <> Sony earbuds
Resigned: SigmaTel STMP3504 <> 2GB <> 1.5 inch TFT
Bye-bye Actions! (at least for now)
