Linux: missing module firmware update instructions

I got my Telexes today and need to update my Teletype firmware to 1.41, but no go.

I’m running Xubuntu 16.04LTS

This is what I get:

$ sudo ./update_firmware.command
dfu-programmer: no device present.
dfu-programmer: no device present.
dfu-programmer: no device present.

I’m using this cable:

Thanks for any and all help. :slight_smile:

i meant to include the intro bit from the mac docs when i wrote the linux update section. with the usb cable already plugged in to TT and your computer, hold the preset button on TT while powering on your modular. the screen won’t come on, which means you’re now able to proceed with the update command. assuming you’re either in the proper groups, or running it with sudo.

i just updated my trilogy of modules yesterday and noticed the docs omission; i’ll write a patch and submit the pull request for the update.

That did it!!! Thanks so much :slight_smile:

Hmmmm … now I can’t find a download for v1.41–it installed v1.40 and I need the Telex commands …

Could someone just post a 1.41 Teletype hexfile? I don’t want the whole toochain. :frowning:

OK, so I decided to get the whole toolchain, but Atmel/Microchip’s lame registration tool (required, which is insane) won’t send me a download link for the AVR32 stuff. grrrrrr

telex support is in the 2.0 beta: Teletype 2.0 beta (release candidate 2 released 13th July 2017)

otherwise @bpcmusic should have a 1.41 hex

I do and can share. :wink:

… and did share, I should have updated this thread.

Microchip sent me a couple of marketing emails in the meantime, but no toolchain download links. :smiley:

to follow up: i wrote the updates and submitted a pull request. the goal is to remove the implicit assumptions about the firmware install process, and give users of all OSes a consistent set of module update steps from start to finish.


Thank you!

For the record, Microchip never did send me a toolchain download link. I get lots of marketing spam now, though. :stuck_out_tongue:
