upgrading module firmware
« on: November 29, 2016, 09:49:50 am »
Made a start with mc-thing this week (I'm a Kickstarter Backer). First thing to do is updating the mc-modules with the latest firmware.

I tried to update 3 of them from which only one succeeded. One other module has a red led burning all the time and one other one ins not accepting the bin file. How to get the red led one working again? And is it possible to reset the mc-module so that it will accept the bin file?

I have all the latest firmware and followed the manual for updating.

Thanks W.

Hello!
Glad you are getting a chance to use the modules!

A couple things to note:

- The Kickstarter Modules are version mc-Mod110s so you'll want to ensure that you are putting the correct firmware onto the device. If you try to put mc-Mod120 firmware on the device it will not accept the firmware
- You will want to ensure that you have fresh batteries!
- On the module with the LED on, did you load a program into that device already? You can try the 'Erase mcScript' function in mc-OTA application to reset the programming on the device

We recently posted an updated video on the mc-OTA process that might help you out. You can check it out here:

Thanks for the reply.

I have done all the steps you mentioned and using the right firmware. Only one of the updated modules is working now. Isn't there a possibility of hard-resetting the modules? Like on the gateway.

Hello,
This is odd and its possible there may be an issue with those other modules you have. I will be sending you an email directly in regards to this
Thanks
