The device has an internal recovery mechanism that allows rolling back the file system to its predefined factory image or restoring the factory default parameters of the device. The factory image is kept in a separate sector on the serial flash in a secure manner and cannot be accessed from the host processor. The following restore modes are supported:
The restore process is performed by calling SW APIs, or by pulling or forcing SOP[2:0] = 110 pins and toggling the nRESET pin from low to high.
The process is fail-safe and resumes operation if a power failure occurs before the restore is finished. The restore process typically takes about 8 seconds, depending on the attributes of the serial Flash vendor.
