- We've fixed the issue some users had while performing a BER test. (The test seemed to freeze the app)
0. Do not connect Pockethernet to the USB port yet!
1. Download the zip package and extract it to any folder
2. Driver installation for Windows 7 and 8 only: Open the folder in a Windows file explorer, right click "Pockethernet Driver Beta.inf", select "Install". Confirm installation. (No actual driver binary needs to be installed, the inf file only instructs Windows to use its built-in USB CDC serial driver with Pockethernet)
Windows 10 already has the necessary driver built-in.
3. Start the application, "Pockethernet Firmware Updater v24.exe" (Needs the .NET framework 4 installed)
4. Connect Pockethernet to the USB port
5. The firmware updater should recognize the device and show its serial number and current SW version
6. Click the 'Start Update' button
7. during the upgrade process, all 4 wire-pair LEDs turn blue. After a successful upgrade, the LEDs turn green (or red if there was a failure during the upgrade)
8. Once the update has finished, disconnect Pockethernet from the USB port
The updater is a single 64-bit executable, also containing the firmware image for the device
1. Download the archive file
2. Extract the file 'pockethernet-v21-beta-fwupgrade'. If needed, make it executable ($ chmod +x pockethernet-v21-beta-fwupgrade)
3. Plug in Pockethernet to the USB port and check dmesg or the system log to see which tty device it has been assigned (usually /dev/ttyACM0)
4. Run the updater with "./pockethernet-v24-fwupgrade /dev/ttyACMx"
5. during the upgrade process, all 4 wire-pair LEDs turn blue. After a succesfull upgrade, the LEDs turn green (or red if there was a failure during the upgrade)
