Re: Updating from 3.3 to 3.10

TomC;
Come to think of something..
When you switch off your calc, do you get the "user customisable" off-image or the "sleeping owl on the tree branch"?
If you get the last one, that means that your FAT/QSPI may be faulty and thus does not get recognised by the PC..

Re: Updating from 3.3 to 3.10

Indeed indeed. There are pure power USB cables which do nothing with the data. I had that twice. Trashed one of them now at the office. However you immediately notice that as when you plug in the right one Windows immediately recognizes it as a drive whilst with the power only cable it does not. Th...

Re: Updating from 3.3 to 3.10

Are you 100% sure you followed the complete installation update as per https://www.swissmicros.com/dm42/doc/libusb_install/ instruction? If you don't need to access bootloader mode, only the mass storage mode, you do not need to have the libsub installed. I have connected my 42 to several PC's and ...

Re: UPDATE: DMCP-3.11 / DM42-3.11

The update went flawlessly. I can confirm the bugs with y^x and ÷ are fixed. I can not relate about the battery consumption though as I didn't had the problem. I will take care of that, once at home. I won't hold my breath though since I don't see anything about power drain issues. As anticipated n...

Re: UPDATE: DMCP-3.10 / DM42-3.10

Reverting back to 3.9.1
No crashes.
5^E10 returns "out of range"
Bench 10.000 takes abt a minute and returns 13.955,8579043 after abt a minute.

So, sticking with the 3.9.1 for the time being.

Re: UPDATE: DMCP-3.10 / DM42-3.10

Am I to understand that people other than Mark are finding V3.10 to be unstable? I'm not talking about the excessive power consumption when off, I mean the device crashing. Yes, I was able to reproduce another error on two different devices (SN00480 and SN00155). For example. Input: 5 ENTER 1E10 y^...

Re: UPDATE: DMCP-3.10 / DM42-3.10

Update:
The 29 second run was connected via USB and thus "unlimited" power.
Running 10.000 off of battert (2,96 volts) it crashed after abt 5 seconds.

Re: UPDATE: DMCP-3.10 / DM42-3.10

How high do you go on the "bench"?
I tried 10.000 and it took abt 29 seconds. Version 3.10 (IFC 03.09) with DM42 3.10

Re: UPDATE: DMCP-3.10 / DM42-3.10

@Leechpool: Flash should take under a minute. You get a status display with info about the installed firmware and an "Press exit to continue", where the DM resets and loads whatever you have asked it to load. For the others; I've tried all the programs I have loaded without crashes and also a solver...
