9XR Pro er9x updates

Post by pedroguimaraes »

Hey guys,
I have my 9xr pro radio with the er9x r222 update, I don't use it with telemetry, it has the DJT module and frsky V8fr2 hv receiver, I have the voices on the radio, on the model aircraft and on the keys working normally, I would like to know if I can update to r226 , it will only change the radio menus, or something in the aspect, for example, of losing the voices of the keys, of the model planes, or changing the settings I have on the model planes.
Another thing, I have the boot loader version 1.3, can I continue using it if I update the radio itself?

Yes you may update to r226. I have always been careful to make sure new revisions do not change the existing radio and model settings, so you should be able to just do the update. It is always a good idea whenever updating to make a copy of the the existing firmware and settings so you may go back to them if you do find any problems. Use eepskye functions to read the existing firmware and EEPROM.

Changes since r222 (anything indented is not relevant to the 9XR-PRO):
Fix right justify for small text
Improve RAM space for LUA handling and reduce frequency of running scripts.
Fix some LUA bugs
LUA improvements and some menu improvements for touch screen use.
Add LAT/Long on custom telemetry screens, Crossfire GPS (and ARDUx) Num Sats now put in a new telemetry value called "Sats".
Fix INAV script Battery bug
Add 8th Flight mode.
Add INPUTS, 32 available, find them under Model Setup|Mixer. These may be used instead of the DR/EXPO options. Inputs are not implemented on the original SKY board as there isn't enough flash space.
9Xtreme, add internal module crossfire protocol (turns internal module on and drives SPort with crossfire protocol)
Enable LUA scripts.
Add GPS processing to DSM telemetry
Touch screen support added

******************************************
CHANGELOG: MPB (r223)
Add support for: T18, TX16S X10Express
X10 hall sticks support
RM-TX16 handle bad rotary encoder
X10 support inverted display
X10 support ACCESS
Colour screens add screenshot
Jumper T18 enable audio
support FrSky PARA bluetooth
Make mixer a RTOS task
Logical switches add "Range" function
Logical switches "AND" switch may be "OR" or "XOR"
Support "MULTI-TELEMETRY" from multi-protocol module
So auto-detect telemetry type from module
Colour screens add HiRes custom screens
Increase custom telemetry values from 6 to 10
Support VFR telemetry value
Support some AFHDS2A extended telemetry data
Support Crossfire/ELRS synchronisation
Add icons on Colour screens
Add main screen popup items for resetting timers
Maintenance mode handles .FRSK files
Update internal multiprotocol module names
ACCESS receiver options added
Add SBUS protocol for external module

If r222 does everything you need, and you don't see anything that has changed that you really want, you don't need to do the update.
Yes you may keep using the bootloader 1.3. If you copy the r226 firmware into the "Firmware" directory of the SD card, you may use "Maintenance mode" (power on holding the horizontal trims APART) to update the bootloader, although if the existing bootloader does everything you need there is no need to update it.
