Title: Firmware 5.8 what's new?
Post by: ipatch on October 03, 2010, 05:35:03 am
I just stopped by the google code page and saw that a new firmware 5.8 (http://http://code.google.com/p/the-bus-pirate/downloads/detail?name=BusPirate.firmware.v5.8.zip&can=2&q=label%3AFeatured) is up, and has only been up for three days.  I noticed the size of 5.8 is almost double the size of its predecessor.  Didn't really see a feature list or any info on what FW 5.8 is bringing to the table.  I didn't see any topics added here in the forum so I thought I would start one.

FYI, I was able to update to FW 5.8 with no problem using the pirate-loader_mac with no problem.

I'm not sure about the change in size, it should be the same size files all compressed with 7zip to .zip.

Change log is in the blog post and on the change history:

Is it crucial to update to bootloader 4.4?  I am currently running bootloader 4.3 and FW 5.8  In the accompanying txt files asosciated with the zip that contains the firmware, it says
Code: [Select]
"This file is only for programming the bootlaoder to a new PIC. Use the upgrade package to upgrade.See dangerousprototypes.com"

I've been using 7zip (http://https://7zipguides.com/) for all compression needs for at least 5 years now. Double check the size of 5.8
