How to upload firmware on Pin2dmd evo

Recommended Posts

Hello every one,

I received my pin2dmd evo and I can not upload the firmware on the pin2dmd.
Can you give me the procedure (step by step) or even better a video to avoid making mistakes.
Should I connect the pin2dmd evo to a separate power supply during this upload?
Thank you for your advice and help.

Ben

The evo board needs to be powered and have a USB connection to your PC. Then hold the DFU button and press/release the reset button to get into DFU mode to upload the firmware using the DFU utility.

Process is described under 1.2 here https://pin2dmd.com/installation/

Thanks for your help.

I use this connector (below) to power the pin2dmd Evo.

I take my 12v on connector 604 (pin 4 and 7) on the card of my indy williams.

Is it good?

When the board are in dfu mode, do some things appear on the pin2dmd screen?

No ! It only registers as a USB device on your PC. After a successful installation of the firmware and a reset the pin2dmd bootsplash should be visible

The problem is that you used upload and not upgrade as described on pin2dmd.com. If you choose upload you make a copy the memory content of the (empty) device and possibly overwrite and corrupt your pin2dmd firmware file.

Hello

I tried to upload the firmware and I had a problem, and I share the solution
I was in my gameroom and I booted the pin2dmd EVO in dfu mode, using the power of a pinball. In the device manager of my PC, the device was saw as a stm booloader with an exclamation as the driver was not installed.
After installing the driver with the Zadig utilily it was worse, the device was saw as a serial device, but not dfu device and I was still not able to use the Dfusedemo program.

In fact, in my gameroom there is no wifi, and when the device was plugged in the driver was not automaticaly installed.

I desinstalled everything and made a manual install of the driver (http://deviceinbox.com/drivers/1157-stm-device-in-dfu-mode.html), and everything works !
