How badly can I mess up the printer if I get the wrong firmware installed?
BTW, the volvito form is no longer there
Luc
@luc-github
yes couple of years is gone

Reading some more as I go... Do I need to compile or can I just flash the Davinci-1.0A-v0.92.10rc4.bin binary?
Jordan R Thompson
@jorythompson
I assume that I would use something like bossac to flash it?
Luc

the FAA says to use: bossac -p <COMXXX> -R -e -w -v -b <yourbinfile>

but -R is no longer supported. What did -R do?

Luc
@luc-github
really I can see it in 1.8 / 1.9.1 and was in older one also I think

Jordan R Thompson
@jorythompson
OK - found it and you are correct, -R is there.
Luc
@luc-github
good

I reset the firmware and tried installing but got this:

D:\Program Files (x86)\BOSSA>bossac -p com5 -R -e -v -b Davinci-1.0A-v0.92.10rc4.bin
Erase flash

Done in 0.032 seconds

I actually read that earlier, but none of the reasons listed affect me (the only possible one could be the USB cable, but I had been using it with the XYZ printing software earlier)
Luc
@luc-github
it does not mean communication is ok due to light close to usb cable or anything that bring interferences
as mentioned in FAQ item : This is not related to FW itself but your installation / hardware (previous FW is no more present and new FW is not yet active)
Jordan R Thompson
@jorythompson
I understand. I only mentioned it because the cable worked fine with the xyz software so it should be OK to install the firmware
Luc
@luc-github
I cannot say more sorry
can of course be due to damaged flash
Jordan R Thompson
@jorythompson
I rebooted, installed 1.5.8 and was able to flash repetier 0.92
Luc
@luc-github
great
Jordan R Thompson
@jorythompson
