    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:

    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"

  7. Mikkel says:

    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?
