    Default Unbricking a Garmin t1390 with ubuntu. Possible?

    Sorry for probably bringing up what may seem obvious to some, but I cannot find the answer here.

    I seem to have bricked a Garmin Nuvi T1390, which was perfectly serviceable despite my drilling into it to attach an audio out socket. I think I did the damage by replacing the original image file with a different one (following someone else's advice!). Now, even after deleting all the user data using the forced reset, the screen only loads to about 2/3 of the green bar (someone told me you need about 500mb free ...).

    Problem is - I use Ubuntu. I found the post 'how to unbrick ...' here, but those Garmin urls for software no longer work.

    Any suggestions to progress? I've tried downloading Virtualbox to Ubuntu to set up a windows xp capability, but now have problems getting that to connect to the net ... and I have concerns about security in the event that succeeds anyway.

    Any ideas? Or should I just go find an old windows machine.

    Thanks for any suggestions,

    You need Windows sorry, you find tutorials in Firmware section and links are ok, we help to unbrick devices almost everyday.
    Look for kunix's cure when you get a Win pc
