USB Infrared Toy / Irtoy shows up as CDC Test device
I've had my IRToy working perfectly fine under arch linux using lirc until a few days ago.
Now it doesn't respond to commands.
I think the problem is the device mode, it show up as CDC Test:
Code: [Select]
$ dmesg

There is no /dev/ttyACM0 device, but instead a /dev/input/by-id/usb-Dangerous_Prototypes_CDC_Test_00000001-event-if01 device.

I've already tried to reflash the firmare, which worked but didn't change my situation. Does anyone know how to fix this or is there anything else I could try?
