Orange Module running MULTI protocol

Choosing an RF Module? What modules work? What is compatible with the 9x?

So, shorting the two 100 Ohm resistors R1 ,R13 did not help.
It might just be this particular module. The previous owner mentioned that he could not get the OrangeRx usb programming tool to connect to this module to reload the OEM firmware.

I'm just (very) glad to have the ability to flash this with the radio. I'm going to leave well enough alone. :)
Thanks again Mike for your work!

I can flash three different Orange modules using a FTDI, but only from a command line for AvrDude. The Arduino IDE doesn't do the upload.
I usually use a GUI front end to AvrDude called AvrDudess, which make creating the commands easy.

Mike, what about using Eepe / Eepskye and an FTDI to flash it?

I've downloaded AvrDudess, but am uncertain of some of the settings that are needed. This is what I have so far.
The chip in the ORx module is an ATXMega32D4.
What do I need for the Bit clock, if any?
And setting for the Fuses and lock bits?

In an old post, it mentioned, "Lock bits should be 0xFF (nothing locked). Fuse 2 should have the 0x40 bit cleared to 0", but I don't know what that means. :?

Can't set the MCU to XMega32D4!

Set the programmer to Arduino.
Ignore the Bit clock, it doesn't apply to the Orange module bootloader.
The fuses should have been set correctly by the Arduino that flashed the bootloader, so ignore them as well, same with the lock bits.
You have the MCU set correctly.
All you now need to do is set the filename in the "Flash" box, and set the "Format" to "Raw Binary" (assuming you have a .bin file, if you have a .hex file, set the "Format" to "Intel hex").
Then just select the "Write" radio button and click the "Go" button.
