BCS 4.1.3 Firmware Release

Post by brahn »

The BCS firmware has been updated to 4.1.3 (build fd86a103).

These are the changes in 4.1.3:
  • Fix issue causing flash corruption on BCS-482
  • Performance improvements for BCS-482
  • Beta: Use Registers for Exit Conditions
A build for BCS-460/2 will be coming later but the main changes in this release only impact the BCS-482.

The BCS-482 can only be updated via USB DFU, instructions for doing this are here.

I found this and it downloads but still wont work. I can find the file with the flash utility but it doesn't flash. I just get a blank dialog box and the List devices and flash buttons become inactive. If i press the list devices button the same thing happens.

I have not been able to reproduce this and it's difficult to say whether this is the original Mac compatibility issue brahn previously mentioned. Honestly, it would just be best to send it over to Brewers Hardware and have both the bootloader and flash image updated to the latest versions.
