Firmware recovering was created by Eleri
Hello,

I decided to upgrade the firmware of a SDC2160 controller, but I mess up with the file name and installed a wrong firmware (of the FBL series). Now the controller does not show up on the Roborun+ utility. The option for upgrading the firmware via COM port is the only one activated on Robotun+ utility but no port is detected or allowed to be manually selected. Is there a way to recover from this situation?

Thanks for any help.

Hi,
Try to connect controller by rs-232.
Select serial port manually in roborun+.
Try to upload correct firmware.

Thanks for the suggestion. I used a USB-Serial adapter to connect to the serial pins of the SDC2160 (Tx, Rx, GND) and obtained the following from Roborun+:

Controller found on port COM21
Resetting the controller ... done
Waiting for device to restart ... error
Device starting string not detected

I solved the problem with a little trick. When Roborun is waiting for the controller to restart (green progress bar evolving) I turn off the power and turn on again. At this point Roborun noticed the restart and the firmware upgrading completed successfully. Now the controller is back to life.

Thanks again.

Eleri.

When the firwmare update process gets to the step "Device Restarted" you will need to manually switch off power to the controller and then immediately switch it off again. Then it will continue and conclude the complete update
