Update FW... HOW?

Postby Andy Cohen » Thu Apr 20, 2017 4:02 pm

Please explain, in detail, EXACTLY how to update the controller board FW (currently rolled back to 1.1.1).

Stock FW or your own modified firmware?

if you have a working firmware that will report back the messages that the touchscreen is looking for, you simply use the touchscreen to select the file like you would a gcode.

it will apply the firmware to the motion controller. if the firmware does not report back an initsd fail, it will report back that the firmware failed to install. however, it did install correctly. just the touchscreen doesn't know that. the touchscreen will then lock down the printer and only allow firmware updates and serial log viewing.

There is further interface the touchscreen is looking for however. without those it will seem like it is frozen.

I just want to update to 1.1.1.
I see no way to do that and the instructions on the website are meaningless.
So... I plug in a thumbdrive with the file, turn on the N2... then what?

hit print
go to where the file is located.
it should have a gear icon.
touch the file and it will ask if you want to flash the firmware.
