Flashing woes again!

by rasseru on Mon Apr 28, 2014 3:05 pm

Hey there,

trying to flash some different firmware as my midi never got working before when i did it and i cant get it to work!

com3 check
19200 baud rate in both the port and c0nb0x (which worked before) check

what else can i try?


i really need this working with MarOS and midi its driving me nuts!

do you know if you really have a bootloader?
you can test that (assuming you have a working firmware):
1) switch OFF
2) set the MODE selector to bootload
3) switch ON - some leds might be lit (it's kinda random)
4) turn the MODE selector to any mode, for example random mode, pattern play, etc.. if the x0x actually changes LEDs, reacts, plays patterns - then it's running the firmware, which would mean that either you have no bootloader, or it doesn't work properly

if the x0x doesn't react, then the bootloader is probably there
you could try on another computer, or so..

yeah, ive flashed it before with sokkos, then marOS.. when changing to marOS my midi stopped working (i think, i did it straightaway to maros when i learnt about the randomise function), really love the MarOS so im trying to go back to sokkos to test to see if midi does work, then back to MarOS to see whats up with that firmware


yeah, it stays on bootloader when changing modes :]


ive tried sending midi notes/start/stop/clock to it and nothing happens, midi or dinsync

i think sokkos and MarOS use the same pattern format, thus it's normal that you got your old patterns in, they didn't go anywhere

if you want the x0x to be played via external midi notes - switch to MIDIPLAY mode, the BANK selector would select the input midi channel (also shown via the BANK LEDs)
send midi notes to that channel (or change it)
