Open TX 2.3 with replacement ISRM (ACCESS) module D16 not binding

openTx has introduced a range of new features, ideas and bling. It is fast becoming the firmware of choice for many users. openTx will run on ALL current hardware platforms, including the gruvin9x and sky9x boards. Work has already started to support the new FrSky X9D radio!

I do not seem to be able to download a build with internalaccess enabled. I'm not sure how you are going to test it unless you use the build that FrSky supplied to you which they should not have done. If that is what you are doing good luck with that. I will be interested in how you get on. I try to avoid living dangerously so I will wait🙂

Internalaccess downloads have been reenabled 2 days ago.

I tried last night, and just tried again, but still getting the wrong board message. Maybe I tried the wrong release, which should I be using? Not that I am in any great hurry. I will probably wait for 2.3.3. At the moment the Access protocol gives me no benefits personally, I only got the modules so as to not get left behind with any possible future benefits.

Make sure companion is set to download the nightly channel if you want it.

Thanks. That would be the problem. I will probably try it to ensure that the modules I have are working then revert back until 2.3.3 is released.

I did a test flight with a electric glider tday with my X12S with the upgrade moduzle installed. I used a X8R reciever (D16). Worked very well.

Great news. Good to hear that it is fixed. It may take me a while to find the time to try it out, as I don't intend to change permanently until 2.3.3 is released. There is no need for me to rush into it.

Yeah don't rush it. I only did it because I rebuilt my X12S before doing the reading on issues. :D
I didn't feel like putting the old ISRM back in because you need to disassemble most of the Tx to do so.

I found some time to try it today, on the bench only. It worked fine with a RX4R both in D16 and in ACCESS mode. (After reflashing RX of course). With a GRX8 it was fine in D16 but in ACCESS mode it would register but not bind. I'm not too worried about that as I don't intend to use that Rx in ACCESS mode. The main reason for trying it was to make sure that I could flash the modules and that they are now working properly. Now switching back to ACCST for the time being.
Thanks to all for sorting this out.

Any news. With the ISRM firmware upgrade it still shows invalid board with the newest nightly compatible to upgrade opentx companion with internal acres checked.

You need to be using the right version of the companion https://downloads.open-tx.org/2.3/night ... n/windows/ I think that is the right one, and I think it is the one that I used. I see that there is now a release candidate for 2.3.3 available. Use: http://downloads.open-tx.org/2.3/rc/com ... 3.3RC1.exe I haven't tried it but I assume that it will allow the module option. I haven't tried RC1 as I know that the modules now work properly, having tried them then swapped back. As he has detailed above Thoemse has also been successful. I am going to wait until the full release now before changing as I do not need the ACCESS protocol at the moment.

I still get the invalid board message when trying to simply download the firmware to my computer. I used the downloads you showed. I flashed the ISRM firmware from the Frsky website prior to this. Do not kno
w what I am doing wrong.

Describe what you're doing, so we can find out... There are pointers above to things people tend to forget.
Use the correct version of companion, set it to the correct radio type, tell it to use the correct release channel, and download / flash firmware.

I just figured it out. Thanks guys. I paid closer attention to the discussions early in this conversation and figured it out.
