Step by step guide to fix USB 3 problem

Post by Indieflow » Fri May 17, 2013 6:38 pm

Is there any chance someone could write a simple guide on how to flash the firmware on the Crazy Radio as I'm really stumped?

I have the software all setup working on an old computer though want to flash the firmware so that I can use the radio from a new laptop.

I've looked at this wiki page http://wiki.bitcraze.se/projects:crazyradio:programming though when I attempt the first line of code in the Command Prompt window I receive "The system cannot find the path specified".

When I go to this page https://bitbucket.org/bitcraze/crazyrad ... /downloads I only see a bin file and the drivers, where is the firmware?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Are you using the Ubuntu VM bitcraze supplied? The instruction assumes you're starting in the HOME directory.

The bin file is the firmware.

Actually, I was wrong the instructions assume your already in the projects directory.
When you first open up the terminal you'll start out in the HOME directory which is /home/bitcraze.
Then you can use the command cd to change directory to /projects/crazyradio-firmware.

Code: Select all

cd projects/crazyradio-firmware
which puts you in /home/bitcraze/projects/crazyradio-firmware

The default place for files to be downloaded is download ( /home/bitcraze/Downloads ).
The bin file can be anywhere that's easy for you to remember though. You can move the bin file to /home/bitcraze/projects/crazyradio-firmware in order to match the instructions more closely. Or, use the full path of were it was downloaded.

Code: Select all

 python usbtools/nrfbootload.py flash /home/bitcraze/Downloads/cradio-0.51.bin

Have you installed pyusb and libusb? Have a look here for a list of dependencies. The list is for the client, but it includes the dependencies for the radio as well.

No, this isn't the USB3 issue. It's that python cannot find the usb packet (pyusb).
