Hi everyone!

Due to using the wrong tool to load a DSK I came up flashing my Neo Zemmix with the contents of Rune Master II. Yes, I know, it is *so* funny, but now I'm stuck with a bricked Neo Zemmix.

How can I fix it? Do I need extra hardware, such as a special cable to reflash it from a PC? Or can I just reflash it using a SD card and some black magic? Any help will be welcome!

I see: USB blaster, screwdriver, patience, a Windooze PC. Sh*t! Big sh*t! Holy big sh*t!

Hello.
I bricked too my zemmix neo updating the firmware(wrong tool or file??) oO oO
I have the usb blaster and quartus 2 v9.0 sp2 web edition(32 bits) and the new firrmware from kdl,but when the flashing operation starts reports an error.
on the tutorials says that the altera must be in program mode(run to program),but where is this switch in the zemmix neo?

thanks

Oh... Sorry to hear that. I can download those but you need to send it back to Korea and it costs way to much.
Just look for some guy who has use blaster.

You need to use at least quartus v.11 to flash firmware.

look at the cable that connects the zemmix to usb blaster, try with other position. I made the same mistake and quartus v11 and the usb blaster works!
