Also, an option is to format an sdcard in ext4 format and load the firmware file on that and mount it while in safemode and use sysupgrade

RE: USB flashing error USB - ERROR: CTL:TIMEOUT
Thanks for this. Unfortunately, I could never get the USB drive to mount. But that did give me an idea to throw it on the sdcard and mount that. And that worked perfectly. So thanks for giving me a nudge in the right direction.
USB flashing error USB - ERROR: CTL:TIMEOUT
I am compiling Omega2+ software and I made a few changes that caused a kernel panic. So I am trying to flash back to stock using USB flashing method. It will detect the USB drive in the bootloader and start reading the file but it will error out with a timeout. The other post I found has a solution of custom firmware that fixes it but due to my issue of not being able to boot this is not feasible. I have tried at least 5 different USB drive all from different manufactures with the same end result. The drive is partitioned to only have a single 1GB partition formatted to FAT32 with omega2.bin being the firmware filename.
Any assistance to get this working would be appreciated. In the meantime I have ordered ethernet expansion to do a web recovery.
