Re: Bricked hardware when updating

I'm sorry that your DM-42 is stuck in QSPI flashing, I thought you were able to flash back to 3.5. I will not be able to provide any help on the QSPI as I've never had to flash it. So you'll need help from SwissMicros, I suggest you contact directly Michael for this.

Re: Bricked hardware when updating

Is there anything I am missing using the SwissMicros instructions for updating a two part firmware upgrade which 3.7 is stated to be. With 3.7 you don't need to use anymore dm_tool, you can find the update instructions for the two parts firmware here . This has not yet been reflected on the main DM...

Re: DM42 License Statement

It may be due to your build as I have no issue with FonSz nor Volume soft menus with the DM42-3.7.1.pgm from SwissMicros.

Re: DM42 License Statement

Should I take ready made DMCP_flash_X.Y.bin from the link in order to flash DM42PGM.pgm ? My understanding is that you just have to flash once DMCP_flash_X.Y.bin which is the OS of the DM42. Then every time you want to use a new DM42xxxx.pgm, you just copy the .pgm from the PC/MAC to the FAT partit...

Re: DM42 vs DM43S

So I go back to my original question ....Why would I buy one instead of the other? (if they both existed today i.e. a DM42 and a DM43) Take a look at the WP 43S feature list on the project page , it should be more powerful than the DM42, but also may be more complex to use. I'm not sure the WP 43S ...

Re: DM42 vs DM43S

Well, it depends on how much you're ready to wait for your next calculator: you can order the DM42 right now, while the WP 43S is still vaporware and is nowhere near completion, it's specification has been on the drawing board for a few years already but no software implementation has surfaced so far.

Re: Inconsistant way of editing LBL and GTO targets

It's normal to have different ways to enter GTO and LBL: with LBL you are creating a new label, so you need to be able to enter directly either a alpha of a numeric label, which is exactly what the HP-42S allows by enabling the Alpha mode (there is some difference on the DM42 I will cover below) wit...

To preserve the stack I would do:

X<> "ORIGX"
X<> ST L
CLV "ORIGX"
