Question
FW flashing of Turnigy 9x with smartie parts board

The flashing was incomplete. Trans now shows ER9x when UBS is attached, but when disconnected and then turned on screen says loading model 1. Nothing ever happens. Can it be re-flashed? or fixed?

Sure it can be fixed.

If you look at the second one in particular you may find just what you need. If not there are very helpful people. But be sure to provide full details of what you did.

The first thing is always to make sure you have good connections, so I'd remove the board and clean the pads really with isopropyl alcohol. Make sure the board is solidly seated.

Sounds like a problem with eprom file containing the model memory. Did you format the eprom at the end of the firmware flash or did you just pull the plug on it?. It is now searching the model 1 but it is not there. Try loading just the eprom file with eepe.

Daedalus66. Thanks. It took three more tries, but FW finally loaded. I should have backed eprom prior to flashing.
