Re: HELP NEEDED! [Is this the end of BenF 3.x firmware line?

Post by ricoreyes » Sun Dec 15, 2013 2:30 pm

I didn't have any luck. :(

I copied the files one at a time, each went to .rdy, but on restart I still had OFW 4.22 running.

I to rule out a device issue, I uploaded the custom FW version that causes the white screen of death (http://www.seeedstudio.com/wiki/images/ ... LIB353.zip), and predictably wound up with the flashing white screen.

I tried to reflash your files again, and again, they went to .rdy, but on restart there was a flashing white screen.

I went back to OFW 4.22, which installed and ran fine. Then I tried your firmware again, but with the same result as the first time, 4.22 stays on.

I'm not sure why it would go to .rdy when I upload your files and still have nothing take effect, but it looks like that's what it's doing.

I'd be pleased to try it again if you have any more suggestions or versions!

Not for now. If I get full newest source BenF fw I will publish my work in one day (after check authenticity)! Reason is: I several times worked on similar things(patching and fixing fw's (on binary level), much complex than this) and publish it and someone get it and continue work on newes versions without publishing. I just want stimulate people to share. If I don't get BenF new source, I will try to contiune work on this version to improve performance and bug fix depend on my free time. If someone does not have the patience can do it alone. It's relative easy. I spend about 3-4hours, worked in night between 3:00AM- 7:00AM :) but job less than 1 hour. At first I had a little familiar with original source.

I had nano just one day and motivate for my work is trigger missing in factory version which is most important for me. I thought to write from zero, but someone alreday did nice job.

It works! You are a genius!

Most excellent work! Now hopefully we can get source for the newest version?

Wow, never imagined I'd see BenF boot up on my nano... :D

Thank you rimidalv007! Good job!

Single shot works! Now this DSO is usable to me. Unfortunatly, I cannot set/reduce buffer size on low timebase with this version of Benf Firmware? :(

Was it hard to implement the new display driver? Maybe there could be an easy way to disassemble the hex-file of Benf 3.64 and insert the new display driver too?

My browser had some issue, I just forced refresh and found 2-nd version.

rimidalv007, You did it! 3.11 BenF on ILI 9341 LCD! Congratulations! You got my admiration and gratitude!
Now we all hope for the latest and most polished BenF source.
