trying to put new firmware on mode machines xoxbox

by maclaren1976 on Mon Nov 02, 2015 12:10 pm

Hi there,

i'm trying to put new firmware (sokkos 2.0) on my mode machines xoxbox, but it doesnt seem to work.
i've installed conbox and the vcp driver.

when i flash the new firmware, conbox says everything is okay and it worked, but when i reboot
there is no Sokkos 2.0 on my box.

anyone know what i could be doing wrong?

thanks!

if the firmware works - it has been flashed
i assume you are looking at what c0nb0x displays when you connect to the firmware afterwards..

when you connect to the firmware with c0nb0x, it tries to distinguish what firmware it is, but this is done using new messages which c0nb0x introduces into the protocol, and most firmwares (especially those which run on the atmega162) don't support them
as a result, c0nb0x cannot tell what the FW is, so it would print something like "(auto) Adafruit 1.05 compatible"
but if you flash sokkos2, and the x0xb0x works - you have succesifully flashed sokkos2

hope this helps

Antto thanks for the reply.

the thing is that i know the flash doesn't work because i don't get any of the expected
Sokkos 2.0 functionality. (I also own a non mode machines xoxbox, and there i successfully flashed sokkos2 to)

i must be doing something wrong, but i can't figure out what so far..
