VBL2350 Firmware upgrade troubles

9 years 2 months ago #29525929 by jetonski
In my VBL2350 I\'m running the shipped firmware from this past spring, and the ?BSR speed query via serial returns 0 for motor 2 at all times. I\'m trying to upgrade the firmware.

I\'ve downloaded VBL2350-Firmware-Update-v12-081411-bin.zip from the VBL2350 product page. The latest version of Roborun+ does not recognize a zip file as a valid firmware update file, so I assume I have to unzip it to a bin file.

I\'ve tried winzip on windows, Archive Utility and unzip (via terminal) on Mac OSX. All of them tell me the file is not a valid archive. I\'ve downloaded with IE and Firefox multiple times. I do not believe I have a bad download.

Suggestions? Thank you!

The firmware files have been generated using winrar. This is usually not a problem but in this case, it appears that they will open only with that program.

We are working to fix this on the web site. In the meantime, attached is a version of the firmware using window\'s zip for compression.

.bin is for update via the com port. .dfu is for update via usb

The filename says MDC2250x... Is this firmware compatible with the VBL2350?
