Re: DM42 Firmware V3.5 available

Any changes? AFAIK, the only change is that the update has been broken into two parts in order to meet the GPL licensing requirements and permit developer programming. Otherwise, the basic DM42 program is unchanged. Since I am just a regular user and not interested in developement, I have not bothe...

Re: Free42 web site has moved

I hadn’t even noticed. I had a tab open in Chrome, and it automatically updated to the new URL when I refreshed it. So, no inconvenience at all. I also see you’ve recently updated Free42 to version 2.0.21. Time for another DM42 firmware update !

Re: Wishes for next Updates

cesar,

Try going to Setup -> Settings -> (X) Slow Auto-repeat

That seemed to help with my DM42 keybounce problems.

Re: DM42 vs DM43S

Step 1 - Download Free42 on the device of your choice, play with it, learn its capabilities and decide if it’s worth paying money for either an HP42s or DM42. Step 2 - If the answer in Step 1 is Yes, then save up your currency of choice and purchase a physical calculator from either the vintage calc...

Re: DM42 Firmware V3.5 available

In case of a calculator of this price tag (...) I think "learning by experience" is little too harsh -- especially for those, who do this experience -- especially when checking for USB-power (the routine is already in the firmware) and quiting the firmware update process if only the battery is ther...

Re: DM42 Firmware V3.5 available

Regarding the new flashing from FAT, can I simply copy the flash bin file to the DM42 FAT drive, and then later on connect it to a USB power source such as my iPad charger to do the firmware update from FAT ?

Re: DM42 Firmware V3.5 available

The update itself went without trouble, but the DM42 crashed during the saving of the state file, which effectively erased everything I have ever done. Luckily, I saved most of my programs to flash and the PC, so not too much of a disaster in the end. So, did this happen after you made the update ?...
