FW updater for Windows - Failed
Since I cannot run the OSX FW updater on OSX Mavericks, I've tried the Windows updater.
I'm running on Windows 7 Pro, 64-Bit.
I've just downloaded that from here: https://www.pycom.io/support/supportdownloads/
ran the updater, connected G23 to GND, plugged into USB, waited for the driver to finish loading (COM24), selected WiPy, COM24. A message indicating the update Failed was displayed, but no informative information was given.
Would someone please help me to understand the failure and how to get around it?
I've tried the update again (on Windows),, it worked this time.
I think there was a sequencing issue the first few times, because I didn't understand the process.
How can we get in touch with the developers?
They really should have a jumper on the board for doing the FW updates. It's too risky connecting a jumper manually each time. There is plenty of room for additional jumpers on the board.
Thanks for your help!
@cappy2112, can you confirm you're using the upgrader called pycom_firmware_update_0.9.2.b2b? If that's the case, it should open a dialog in the background with the information on the upgrade process. If that's the case, would you be so kind to copy paste the results here?
I connected G23 to gnd with the USB unplugged. When I plugged in the USB connector, isn't that the same as rebooting?
Before you run the latest updater you should be connecting G23 to Ground followed by re-boot and then run the updater. Your post implies that you were running the updater prior to linking G23 to GND and you didn't mention rebooting the WiPy2/LoPy,
