Re: Understanding er9x / Ersky9x

Hi Guys

I'm looking for some advice on interchangeability between Er9X and Ersky9X

I am currently using Er9X with a Smartieparts board in my old 9X and Ersky9X in my new 9xtreme

In the interest of consistency, I thought I might flash my old 9X with Ersky9X - would this work?

Re: OK, let's document this!

Hi Steven

I used the 9XPRO documents to get me through the set up steps

viewtopic.php?f=122&t=5575

I think you could use this format as an outline and shorten/convert the text to suit the 9XT

Thanks for the help and support

Re: USB bootloader and connecting to eepskye

Hi Guys
I have the same issue with the display when selecting bootloader but it can take several minutes before I get the display 'bootloader ready'

Nevertheless file transfers and firmware updates work ok

I guess I need to try Mikes latest firmware fix

Just one other question - when in bootloader mode, it sometimes can take a minute or so before the text comes on to the screen - is this normal? No, you should see "9XTREME" in the centre almost immediately (this comes from the original mainboard, followed by the "Boot Loader" screen within a secon...
