In theory is sufficient to boot your Riko in recovery mode. Simply hold the reset button for 5 secs with OTG cable connected to a PC equipped with the right driver.
And this tool seems to work in the same way of manual-flash thru parameter file that I have suggested in my last post...

Hi, so can you confirm the tool works for you or not?

...not so bad, but in some boot sequence (i dunno how) the renowned MAC address 00:90:4c:11:22:33 comes back.

Random generated MAC address on eht0

The way to solve this for wifi is to bring up the wifi as late as possible.
Make sure you haven't got any wifi.conf in /etc/init

Bring up the wifi in rc.local as it does in the supplied linux firmware.

Also you can easily manipulate the eth0 MAC address using for example:

ifconfig eth0 hw ether 11:22:33:44:55:66

Make sure you bring down eth0 first and the up again after the change.

You can place this in rc.local too to make it permanent.
