Hi awokd.
Sorry for the very late reply.

Thank you very, very much for sharing your experience and hint!
Based on what you wrote I have just improved the document "How to update with pirate-loader.rtf" (generic cross-platform instructions for Windows, Linux and Apple users) by adding your information.

Be seeing you.

I would like to have the merged repository that you have created to get your new firmware v7.11 cause I suspect the ones you provided here in the forum have not all the features enabled and it would be useful for me to be able to evaluate the size of the firmware when compiled to have all the options enabled and 256 characters for the command line.
I hope that as soon as possible someone will merge the things in order to provide an improved repository directly on github.com

After reviewing a pull request (https://github.com/BusPirate/Bus_Pirate/pull/93) I have just cloned this forked repository - https://github.com/ChristopherSamSoon/Bus_Pirate and changed the version numbers of firmware/bootloader. Although he also changed README, so I took "README" from a primary https://github.com/BusPirate/Bus_Pirate repository. Compared to the primary repository, ChristopherSamSoon is behind by 2 commits - but these commits are not affecting a code, so my bootloader/firmware builds are still the latest and "fresh"

To see what features my BPv3 firmware build has, you could just look at this configuration.h file of forked repository - https://github.com/ChristopherSamSoon/B ... guration.h - and search it for things like " BUSPIRATEV3 ". I have not modified this "default configuration"

Please tell me if this "default configuration" is OK, or its missing some features that your version configuration.h is providing

Luckily agatti is back, so maybe he will merge this pull request to the official branch

See you,
