Open Tx 2.2 For 9XR - 9XR pro

Post by old4570 » Sat May 13, 2017 5:19 am

Is there a step by step guide out there ?
I would like to try open Tx with both my 9XR and 9XR pro

A) 9XR pro I can do from the USB
B) 9XR is proving some what ?? of a PITA
C) The USB driver , following instructions from oenTx , STM 32 BOOTLOADER ( What the parking lot ) ... Zadig is proving to be useless ...
( Win 8.1 ) I got USBasp installed ? , no option for STM 32 BOOTLOADER like in the alleged guides ..

So apparently if there is no STM 32 , then don't bother trying to go any further !

D) And just what files do you download ?????????????/ For the Turnigy 9XR (pro) do you download the Taranis X9 files ???? , or do you need transmitter specific files ? ( A rather obvious Noob question I don't see addressed ) Perhaps I cant see the tree for the forest ?

I think all this stuff is fantastic , but it's just giving me a headache .. I understand guides , but when they simply dont work ? or the instructions are vague ..

I think I installed the STM 32 bootloader for Betaflight ... ?? ( So it should be there ?

I might have to try and manually chose STM 32 , If I can fins it ..

Please help !

The 9XR-PRO does not use an STM32 processor so none of the STM or Zadig stuff applies.

You jsut power up with the horizontal trims pinched to center, set companion to use a 9XR-Pro, use it to download 9XR-PRO firmware and download the SD card contents (Taranis ones will do).

Yep , I gave up playing with the 9xr .....

I moved to the 9XR pro , and it was as simple as downloading the Taranis 9x SD card files , then installing the companion software ..
Then simply creating a Tx profile , choosing the stuff U want ( like multiprotocol )

What mine did not do was save it as a BIN file , I had to manually rename the file 9xrpro *.bin
After that flashing the Tx was easy ...

9X and 9XR Transmitters dont apparently support Multiprotocol , ( Unless its the older one ? )

Anyhow , OPEN TX 2.2 installed on my 9XR pro ( awaiting a multi protocol module )
Just have to try and rebind some models with this new firmware now ... ( Other modules )
Yeah , the 9XR pro is fun , the 9XR is not so much fun , all sorts of issues with the 9XR ...

If you have a PRO the 9XR indeed doesn't have a lot of interest... just backup, maybe buddy box too. OpenTX indeed doesn't support multiprotocol on AVR radios.

Just for info. er9x does support the Multiprotocol module on the 9XR.

I installed er9x on my 9XR and it does look like it supports the multi protocol module ...

( But which one ) https://www.banggood.com/IRangeX-IRX4-2 ... endongling

I have this one on the way ...

I think they all use the same actual protocol between the radio and the module. Most, however, ship with old firmware, so they need to be updated. The firmware you flash will then be correct anyway.
