    Successful update on BP4! Had to build loader for Darwin.

  2. Jim Narem says:

    The V3 firmware file has a typo in the file name:
    BPv3-firmware/BPv3-frimware-v6.1.hex

    It installs fine (on a sparkfun BP).

  3. Marek Szuba says:

    Looks like you have forgotten to include extra BPv3 firmware in this version too, Ian.

  4. Dmitry says:

    Sorry to say that, but people hate tarbombs.

  5. James Newton says:

    Apparently removed from 6.1:
    – BASIC Script Engine
    – Alternate “extra” mode firmware (DIO, JTAG, PC Keyboard, etc…) is not available in the .zip.

    Anything else missing? And where do I find 5.9 if I happen to need one of those?

  6. Bruce says:

    Hey! There’s a minor off-by-one error in the source.

    in pirate-loader-source/source/pirate-loader.c, line 712
    replug the devide and try again
    "devide" should be "device"

    Hi even after flashing the extras 5.9 i still have no jtag option in “m”.. Does it matter witch firmware was flashed before i flash the extras? I have a buspirate 3.6 withc atm has bootloader 4 and firmware 6.1.

    Does anyone have a similar experience.. jtag missing?

  8. Mike says:

    I have a bus pirate v3.6a which comes default with v4+ bootloader and firmware 5.10
    However I needed to upgrade to 6.1 for the openocd support.

    I used the GUI tool to upgrade with a paper clip and the correct firmware all according to the upgrade documentation.

    However after the upgrade I reset the bus pirate replug the USB and opened a terminal. No longer does the (help) menu appears not entering any key like “I” results in anything. It’s just stuck.

    Help needed because I don’t know what went wrong

  9. Mike says:

    Alright. Found the issue.

    I was doing it all from Linux ubuntu 16.04 with mono. That was because I couldn’t get the cli tool running. I compared the ds30 application with windows and there seems to be some settings different by default and I guess also something underneath happens which would corrupt the firmware. Luckily I could still upload firmware to it from windows client and it worked.
