Update Expansion Board firmware using Windows?
aen last edited by
I've been following the guide on
to upgrade the firmware for the Expansion Board 3.0 using Windows. However, the guide is not really precise when stating if the Zadig software should be used or not. It guide states that the Zadig software should be used only for the PySense/Pytrack. Not for the Expansion Board. So, I just followed the instruction under the heading "Using DFU-util with Pytrack, Pysense and Expansion Board v3" which basically only says "hold down S1, plug in USB, wait 1 second, release button, run dfu-util -D.
But the application terminates very early and returns
"No DFU capable USB device available"
Should I install Zadig and follow the guide form there? Even if I don't have PyTrack/PySense?
Which application should I be using? dfu-util or dfu-util-static?
Using Windows 10.

I am answering my own question.
I never got it to work on Windows. My computer only had USB 3.0 ports and that could have been the issue.
Running dfu-util on a somewhat old Mac-Mini did the trick:

People have had success also running the dfu-util on Linux instead of Windows and then going back to windows for development. But I guess nowadays people are more comfortable with Mac.
