Problems during the firmware update.

Q&A forumProblems during the firmware update.
amagro asked 2 years ago

During the firmware update the u-center application stopped working (“Not Responding”), this was the update of the second simpleRTK2B (base), the first module was updated without any problem.
Now when I connect the simpleRTK2B I get a connection error, I need to change the usb port in order to establish the connection, but if I disconnect I no longer can connect in that usb port, I need to change it again. 
When the connection is established the u-center starts to get data from the simpleRTK2B board but suddently stops receiving it.
The information about firmware version installed on the simpleRTK2B is the new one, I tried to update again the firmware but it didn’t start and the u-center application freezes (“Not Responding”). 
What can I do?

Hi amagro,
We just experienced this issue with the ZED-F9P module a few days ago. The solution was to keep trying, after 4 attempts of firmware upgrade we finally succeeded. Try changing the baudrate to double or half of the speed that you are currently trying. Let us know if you solved it.

I finally succeeded the firmware udpate, with the double of the speed. The trick was to update as soon as possible after connecting the simpleRTK2B.
What was happening was that if I connected the board, it started to receive data and suddently it froze. If the update occours before it freezes it will suceed.
I send you a link with the information on each console, from the moment of connection till simplerRTK2B freezes.

Hi amagro, is this a question? Can you give more details?

No, this was some more information when I had the board freezed. I tried to edit the first post, but i didn’t figure out how to do it.
