USB Dongle Constant Red

Post by popopo »

It seems that my computer cannot recognize the usb dongle as when I run "lsusb" in the terminal, the usb dongle doesn't show up. Another issue that might relate to this problem is that when I run "python usbtools/", the terminal outputs "Error!, cannot find the CrazyRadio USB dongle!". The usb dongle LED is also at a constant red when I plug it into the computer.

Is this Crazyradio new or has it been used by someone-else before?

When using the firmware shipped with the Crazyradio, both Green and Red LED should light-up when the radio is powered and both LEDs are switched-off when the USB enumeration completes.

I think the pattern where the RED Led is always ON is the pattern used by the mousejack firmware. This firmware has been quite popular with the Crazyradio and is used by security researcher. I have no first-hand knowledge about it but it is possible your Crazyradio has been flashed with it, in such case you can get help on the project's github:
