Hi All,

I am running a old firmware on my SunSDR2 DX. Trying to update this with the firmware updater within the latest ExpertSDR3 software.
But this is not working. It is preparing,..... but does not update?
Any help/ideas?

Tim

Hi everybody
I would like to hook into Tim's question. When I had just received my SunSDR2DX, I was offered a firmware update on start-up. I clicked on it without suspicion. After that the transceiver was completely unusable (green blinking LED) and the same prepare Message. I could not be helped either here, all the advice I received from ExpertSDR Service was not helpful to me, or by the company from which I bought the device. Fortunately for me, the unit was recognised as defective under warranty and replaced. Thamks to WiMO : )
That's why I'm a bit apprehensive about firmware updates.
With version EESDR3 0.11.0, FW 72.8 the transceiver ran almost all the time in continuous operation incl some contests and there were no problems.
The folder c:\Users\xxx\AppData\Local\Expert Electronics\ExpertSDR3 Firmware\ is only filled with 0 byte files? Is there any way to perform a test before updating the firmware?

Thank you for your time
Thomas, DF2LH

It seems that the software can not connect to the tranciever in boot mode.
In expertSDR3 it is only prepairing and will not update.

I tried to update the firmware in expertSDR2
When I power the tranciever in boot mode (BT button) the led is blinking.
When I start the update proces in ExpertSDR2 I get this message. See image

Perhaps EE can solve this for me??
What do I do wrong?

1. TRX should be directly connected to PC.
2. PC should be in 16th subnet, e.g. 192.168.16.50

Dear Roman,

Is this correct?
Do I need Monterey to update the SUNSDR2 DX?

Kind regards, Tim

Not true.

My post was an attempt to cure this panic attack:torriens wrote:

As a matter of fact, anything from 11.x and above (including OpenCore patched on older HW) does the job.

Perhaps, read "Release Notes for the ExpertSDR3 0.12.0"
