[DM41] Firmware Update Instructions Out of Order

Post by toml_12953 » Mon Jun 12, 2017 12:05 pm

I just updated my DM41 to V23. I found that following the update instructions in order didn't work. If I start the update tool before connecting the calculator to a USB port (as the instructions say to do), the COM port doesn't show up in the firmware update tool. If I connect the calculator then run the tool, the COM port shows up and I can update normally.

Update note for macOS Sierra v10.12.5 users ...

I just updated all my DM calculators and I have found that it is more easy to update them if I add the halfduplex option.
Also, some of them need multiple resets before going into the update logic.

sudo lpc21isp -control -controlinv -halfduplex -hex DMXX_V23.hex /dev/tty.SLAB_USBtoUART 115200 12000
