I have a TK1 and had Ubuntu 14.04 running flawlessly on it. Somehow the automatic updates kicked in and it updated me to 16.04. My Unity crashes on startup, I can ctrl+alt+F1 and access the command prompt, and I can ssh in over the network, so I know my board isn’t screwed up. However, I cannot boot the board into recovery mode to flash 14.04 back onto it. It will act like it is in recovery mode, IE no lights on the ethernet, and it shows up as APX on my windows machine, but I CANNOT get the VMs I run to recognize it via lsusb (Kali Linux, 16.04, 14.04, 14.10) or get my MacOs to recognize it as a device at all when I plug it in via micro USB.
I am at my wits end. Please help or give me some magic way to flash an OS over the network.
