Flashing Firmware over Sport with 9XR Pro Finding Device

Post by AwesomeOne » Wed Jun 15, 2022 2:53 am

Hello! New to RC and these forums.

I ran into the issue binding an XJT module to an R-XSR receiver where the R-XSR has all LEDs turned on and am looking to flash known firmware versions to the XJT module and R-XSR to rule out firmware issues.

I've tried to flash both, first the XJT and then the R-XSR with no luck. The 9XR Pro stops at "Flashing Finding Device" for both devices:

I've tried with both the r212 and r223 firmware versions of ersky9xr and the image was taken when using r223.

Any advice on how to proceed?

Thanks in advance!

The devices (XJT and R-XSR) need to be powered on AFTER the radio gets to the "Finding Device" state.
Are you using erskyTx or openTx?
With erskyTx, power the radio on in "Maintenance mode" and select "Update SPort". Now turn the power switch OFF, this turns the power to the module bay off.
Proceed to the "Finding Device" state, then turn the power switch back ON.

That worked!

I'm using erskyTx and was able to flash both devices from Maintenance Mode and then bind them.

Thank you Mike for the quick and helpful response! :)
