Any help would be great! Running out of things to try.
The motors are not connected anymore but they were briefly last night but I didnt run anything or testing. Right now there is blue light and a green one showing. Also, when i try to upload a custom firmware it shows as if its uploading and then it disconnects but then, nothing happens and after a power cycle, it shows the same data as above. Running the BLDC tool, i see a message saying
“The firmware on the connected VESC is too old. Please update it using a programmer.”
Also, tried using @Ackmaniac tool
Dealing with this issue now, anyone know how to get the vesc (focbox) back to the right hardware version, I flashed ack’s latest firmware but accidentally said it was 48 hardware and not 410, 411, 412 like I needed too, how can I flash back to this?n Any advice @Ackmaniac???
Ok cool, thanks @trampa / Frank, really appreciate it my man. Any chance you have a link directly to that FW on his Github? I can browse for it but not till later so figured I’d ask and see if you might have the time. Thanks either way!
Got it, ok. See it there, thanks so much Frank. Last question for now then just to make sure I do this correctly the first time around… Do I need to find and d/l Benjamins VESC tool or can I still upload that firmware from his page to put on the VESC/Focbox I need to from Ackmaniacs VESC tool like I did prior? LMK when you have a minute and thanks again, really appreciate the help!
That’s what I i was just wanting to confirm with you first, so use Vedders VESC tool and not @Ackmaniac VESC tool like I did originally when I updated firmware the other day. Correct? Sorry for asking the same / similar question if your answer was already clear enough, just want to be certain I don’t brick my FOCBOX is all. Better safe than sorry at the end of the day though right…? Lol. Thanks again @trampa
Hey Frank, a lil help… I d’l the .bin file for the default firmware I need in the appropriate hardware section (410,411,412) but it won’t let me upload that firmware in the VESC tool and keeps trying to get me to open up the BLDC tool instead… any idea why it’s doing that? I see the file is for the VESC tool but then when I hit upload firmware in the VESC tool after putting the d/l there it won’t allow t… I just want to go ride my new set up… ugh. Please lmk what i’m doing wrong… or am I supposed to do it through the BLDC tool then switch over to VESC tool after that…? @trampa
