Thread: Binding and updating

It's ok Chris, just found an unpacking app in the Apple app store

19/01/2017 15:25:18

Hi Chris,

I did make the cable as per your pictures. i think that the problem is the file. Hadn't realised that it needed unpacking, Would appreciate your help. what software do I need to unpack it with?

19/01/2017 14:41:49

I have made up the correct lead for the tx - rx link.

I have downloaded the file for my X6R (X8R_150115.rar) and put it onto the sd card-FIRMWARES Lib.

Go onto correct page on taranis, select the correct file press enter and nothing happens.

Do I need to power up the rx with an external battery?

Morning all,

A darkened room was certainly needed. Spent some time on Sunday going through some of my receivers and also getting reaqainted with the Taranis. So far I have only 1 rx that won't bind - X6R. I guess that this one needs a change of firmware.

Is that X6R newly bought, or an older one? If it's the latter that means you are already on LBT and all you need to do moving forward is update that one RX; after that all new ones you buy moving fwd should work. If it's the former you will have to decide whether you want to update all your older RXs and the Transmitter to EU LBT as a one time hit, or update each new RX you buy from now on to Int'l before you use it.

I cannot remember when I bought he X6R

Now your starting to confuse me about updating. How do I know if I have EU LBT (is it the EU setting on the download options)

Do i need to change to it..

I am withdrawing my interest in the Hurricane (my favourite) and have gone with the ME110. Hard decision but I have recently bought the Mk9 Spitfire. This will be my 1st ever twin( in 40+ years of modelling.

Twins are different but not difficult. once the kits are in hand we will get a thread going with setup tips etc. will yours make a noise?

Hi Jon,

Mine is going to be electric. Are you going for one, and if you are I look forward to the thread.

Hi Chris,

Will do. Thanks once again

Good evening all,

Having got back a working Tx with a basic setup what's next?

Do I need to build a load that includes Eu and the other bits I left off.

I haven't tried any of my receivers yet

The hurricane was my 1st choice but I had the Spitfire instead as there was no Hurries in stock. If it's not going to be for a couple of months I would have one. They can be electric I hope.

Doh Doh Dohblush

Just switched on after a little charge, system now working. With All this trying out over the last few days I have drained the battery. (because system not working, I was not able to see the battery status).

Tonight it will have a good charge. After that - sort out the original problem - eu or non eu , receivers etc.

Thanks to everybody for your time spent so farbeer, very much appreciated.

Ah good point andy. because of no display I can't ee battery condition going to put it on charge now

10/01/2017 20:35:24

I'm sorry Andy, what I am trying to say is that the Tx dies after selecting write. It never gets to the next screen.

If I wait a few seconds before I select Write, the Tx dies.

Graham

Andy - boot loader is ver 2.0.12

Peter I did that the 1st time but now when I switch on and if I'm lucky I get that screen display and I select write - the screen goes blank and the machine gunnies starts. thats all that happens until I switch off.

10/01/2017 19:59:49

I did that Andy.

If I switch on now with trims l/r

display - writefw start up screen

displays file name.

if I don't do anything, after about 10secs screen goes blank then noise starts

I then power off disconnect battery reconnect battery switch on - nothing except noise

10/01/2017 19:47:46

Chris.

I'm not getting that message any more since installing dry-util.

everything seems to go ok without errors.

it's just that there is nothing there except the noise

Graham

I have created a very basic build as suggested

I tried installing via sd card Trims l/r etc.

write firmware Displays correct file name press enter dispels writing etc.

power off then on displays opentx very briefly then starts m/c gun noise.

Then tried with opentx. all appears ok . power off then on - same result nothing but constant noise.

10/01/2017 18:49:49

Hi Pete

Loaded the SD card into the Mac card reader. Created a directory called FIRMWARES and copied a file called

'open-taranis-no-heli-massstorage-mixersmon-en.bin into it.

​Replaced the sd card back into Tx switched on with trims set

selected 'write firmware' for some reason it displayed 2 file names even tho only 1 in directory

​pressed enter and now as reported

I have tried booting without SD - only get the generated noise
