What, exactly, have you done to the Tx? Did you flash new firmware? If so, what did you flash and how (Bootloader or DFU)?

You may now need to flash the firmware using DFU mode. I'm not sure if the MAC can do this.
With the radio powered OFF, connect the USB, you should get a "DFU" device appear on the computer. Does this happen?
