Re: Taranis X9D Bricked.

Try it powered off, it uses completely different methods powered on and powered off. Powered off uses the dfu loader burned into the processor and not openTX bootloader and can't be bricked by a bad load. It also reloads the openTX bootloader. Try a different cable too.

Re: Taranis X9D Bricked.

There is no difference in Companion between the X9D and the X9D+ but there is a difference in the firmware that it downloads for them. You tell it which you have under settings. I was questioning it because you said X9D bricked and not X9D Plus bricked. In any case since you have a Plus you download...

Re: Taranis X9D Bricked.

I'm confused. You use Companion to download the firmware and flash it to the radio. Which version of Companion did you use to download the firmware, and which version did you use to try to flash it (2.2.1 or 2.2.3). In any case did you perhaps download and flash the wrong version of the firmware (X9...

Re: Cant get openxsensor to work @ 3.3V 8Mhz arduino

I think people will need a little more information to be able to help. What arduino board are you using? What receiver are you connecting it to? What transmitter and firmware are you using? And exactly what is the problem? Can't get the Arduino to flash, or openxsensor flashes but the transmitter do...

If you updated to 2.2.x you need the matching SD card files from: https://downloads.open-tx.org/2.2/release/sdcard/ However, if you didn't update the SD card you should be getting a "SD Card Mismatch" mes...

Re: Delete/remove models

You can do a factory reset if you want to start with a clean slate. Menu Long to enter Radio Settings, Page forward to the Version screen which should have a Factory Reset option.....Menu Long and then confirm. This will erase all models and reset all radio settings.

Re: Delete/remove models

Menu to get model list
+ or - to move to the model you want to delete
Enter long (hold enter) to get pop up menu with delete model as one of the entries.

You can not delete the active model, select a different model and make it active then move to the one you want to delete and Enter Long.

Zadig installed drivers should only be used if the radio is attached Powered Off. If you ever run Zadig and install drivers with the radio attached powered on (which I suspect you have done) it will delete the correct drivers and install wrong ones. With the radio attached powered off (using Zadig i...

Re: Unable to check for updates Ubuntu 16.04

Before doing something that drastic I would check a couple more things. I don't know what Ubuntu installs with openssl so I would check if libopenssl-devel is installed and also (I'm guessing you have a 64 bit system) that the 32 bit libopenssl-32bit libraries are installed. If not I would install t...

Yes, you must first download the firmware to your computer using Companion, there is no other way to download it. Companion knows from where to download it.

If you have 2.2.1 Companion you have either already downloaded 2.2.1 firmware or said to ignore it. In either case checking for updates won't download it again. If you already downloaded the firmware just burn it to the transmitter. And if you have either not downloaded it or can't remember where yo...

Re: Taranis Plus start up

Are you sure you downloaded and flashed Plus firmware and not standard Taranis firmware? Radio Type in settings needs to be Taranis X9D+, not X9D.
