    someone please HELP me!
    what do I do ? I can't find help for this ANYWHERE on the internet !

    My router is a 3620.

    I erased my flash to update it with a new version.

    (I should have updated the flash before erasing it) so now i'm stuck with
    the ROMMON prompt.

    It doesent have a tftpdnld command, so I have to xmodem the .bin file to the
    router

    after it gets sent to it, I get the message:

    erasing flash at (whatever the memory portion is) and it continues
    incrementing as it does until it gets to

    erasing flash at 0x30c00000

    where it stops and I get the error message:

    sector erase failed at 0x30c00000
    status 0x2000
    flash sector will not erase... aborting

    I first assumed that the flash memory chips were faulty, and replaced both
    today (2 x 8mb)...

    but I still get the same error message ..

    what am I to do :(

    I can't believe there's nothing on the internet with regards to someone else
    experiencing the same problem.

    try different terminal program.
    Try d/l'ing a new image or compare the md5 hash.
