Title: IrDroid
Post by: Barf on August 27, 2015, 09:02:00 am
Recently, someone on the Lirc mailing list asked for help with a piece of hardware called IrDroid. I got interested in finding out what it was all about. So I ordered one such. To cut a long story short, it turned out that it is nothing but a stripped-down (bootloader. IR Detector, accessible GPIO pins missing), and old firmware (2.0)! After soldering in the ICSP header, I could succefully flash the 2.2 firmware (AND bootloader!), and Lirc was happy.

So, simply put, IrDroid is half of an IrToy to twice the price. Well.... Congrats to Dangerous Prototypes!
