(Solved) Update TamsMC to V2.0 failed

Postby agre30 » 29.09.2016, 16:53

Hi All,
I installed the latest version of CV-Navi, Java and rxtx on my Lubuntu laptop. Communication between CV-Navi and TamsMC is oké, I can read the configuration.
I downloaded the latest HEX V2.0 file from the Tams website and followed the instructions:
- Unplug the TamsMC from power and computer
- Press start-stop on the TamsMC and plug in the power
- Plug in de USB-cable
- Start CV-Navi

CV-Navi starts with the update screen, where I select the right port through which the TamsMC is connected en select the HEX file and then....nothing happens for a long time so I aborted the action.
How long does it take to update the TamsMC? Maybe I have to wait longer?

Or what did I do wrong?

Albert.

Hello Albert!

It worked well with me a few days ago. The update takes about 30 s.

Sometimes I have to wait a while until CV Navi regocnizes the COM port.

Hello Claus,

Do you also work with linux ubuntu or similar?
Which steps did you take to update de Tams?
Through USB or Serial cable?

Hello Albert!

Win 7, USB.

- Establish cable connection
- Switch on MC and wait a little bit (COM port via USB needs some time)
- Start CV-Navi
- Make sure that there is a connection to the MC (no error message on CV-Navi shall appear!)
- Power up MC again whilst pressing start-stop (-> display shows "HexLoader ...")
- Get the hex-file
- Press "Update" or "Start" (I don't know the button by heart ...)
- The progress bar starts immediately running
Beste Grüße/Kind regards

Hi Claus,
I followed your steps and it worked. I upgraded to version 2.0. Thanks.
At first I followed the instruction from the Tams website and it did not work. Strange. The way you describe it worked right away.

Thanks again.

Greetings from Holland.

This should work. (Just did this last night on ubuntu to identify/verify a firmware bug in V2.0.0 :? ) Did you select the right connection used (below the hex file name selected) ? USB and RS-232 connections handle firmware updates slightly different "inside" the MC.

CV-Navi is developed on debian and/or ubuntu and tested on raspbian and windows. So it should work and almost every linux with up to date software.

is there a good reason not to support Java 1.6?
Signing andRoc with java > 1.6 will corrupt the byte code...

Hi Lothar,
I used the same settings in both situations. The way Claus discribed it works, the other way does not. No problem, I was able to upgrade.
