Re: Updated DM41 encoder/decoder

Head on over to http://dm41.swissmicros.com :) This new version preserves a lot more information from the DM41 than the previous version. Have a look at the "Quick Ref" tab for an overview of what you can see from the dump and synthesise in a new dump. Nice improvements. Adding the quick ref is use...

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 ? Yes, you can do it later, just be sure you have the USB cable connected to a PC or power a...

Re: DM42 Firmware V3.5 available

Actually, the code at https://www.swissmicros.com/dm42/free42/ just builds a test version that runs on a PC console. It does not build an actual installable firmware, and the tools needed to do so, and to debug the firmware, are also still missing. This shows just how much (little) I know; I just f...

What makes you guessing that??
SM released the DM42 code some weeks back. Lots of folks suggested they wanted it to make their own custom versions, but I suspect the reality of doing so is a much higher hurdle of complexity and resources than most will actually commit to.

Re: DM42 Firmware V3.5 available

Yes, it can. In fact it is required if you feel the urge to downgrade to a version prior to 3.5. Great, thanks for confirming. Firmware binaries from 3.5 onwards contain a signature and a checksum that the DM42 looks for when doing a flash from FAT. If the signature and checksum are not found then ...

Re: DM42 Firmware V3.5 available

Quick and easy update to both production and beta machines.

Question: Can the current update method (with dm_tool) still be used in the future as well as the new boot-from-flash? I find it's just as easy, maybe even easier.

Thanks for update with no bumps.
