Then, like described here
http://www.seeedstudio.com/wiki/Arduino ... ePhone_Kit
i installed the drivers. Both com ports are listed in the device manager.

Next i tried to update the firmware but failed:
- My RePhone was off (LED off)
- Updater strated and download button clicked.
- USB connected to PC
- LED becomes green. RePhone starts in mass storage mode (drive shown in the windows explorer).
- Firmware updater time out message.

What's wrong? Do i have to erase the files in the mass storage before?
Hi m.duerr,

If the Firmware updater is working well, you shouldn't be able to go into the mass storage mode, instead you can find a COM PORT in Device Manager, which is used for firmware flashing. Please recheck if the driver is well installed, then go through the wiki again.

Thank you.

I have this problem as well - not being able to flash new firmware on RePhone.

I read all the online posts and followed the steps over and over again - but the tool always times out and cannot update the firmware.

Very disappointed in the quality of this product.
