Hello, thank you very much. Сommand:
Code: Select all | TOGGLE FULL SIZE
 xmas-icetube / firmware % chmod +x util.pl
helped and compilation was successful. Today I'm going to flash the microcontroller. I hope everything works out.
If I have further problems when starting the clock, can I ask for help in the relevant sections of the forum?
Thank you in advance.
Sincerely, Vladimir.

Excellent! And congratulations on a successful build.

If you do run into any issues, I would be happy to help. It's probably better to post to the thread for my firmware rather than this one.

Good luck and happy hacking!

Do you recommend always keeping the firmware up to date, Jarchie?

I guess the short answer is "no."

The long answer?

The last update I made to my firmware was several years ago. I consider the firmware to be a finished product at this point, and do not intend to make any more changes. I will probably only update the code if problems are found (e.g., if bugs are found or if the project fails to compile in some future version of the avr-gcc compiler).

I would suggest looking at the current list of features in the firmware/README file. If there's a new feature you want, then maybe installing the latest version is worthwhile. Consider also that upgrading the firmware might be a fun project (or not fun, depending on your temperment). Use your own judgement.

Anyway, as always, good luck and happy hacking!
