Firmware V1.06H

Hello out there,

there is a new official firmware available: V1.06H.

Does anybody know the differences? I tried it, there are a lot of structural changes but I cannot see any logigal improvements.

Thank you very much :-)

Re: NXT clicking, no fw download possible

Hello, do you have a solution to it now? Do you know if the owner used the ATMEL SAM-BA-Tool to get access to the brick? Or did he do anything special with it? If not I do not think the security bit is the problem. How old is the brick? Perhaps it is old enough so the flash is worn out? I do not sur...

Forum-Link from www.mindboards.net gets empty page

Hello all, Since September I often get a white page when opening http://www.mindboards.net and click the "Forums" button. I never observed this before. I am using firefox 24.0, ubuntu 12.04 or an android 4.3 mobile device. As I often just take a short look into the forum I did not try to get in on a...

Re: Problem when trying to install nxtOSEK in Lubuntu

I couldnt find the old version of libusb-dev, only the runtime version. Do you know where I can find it? Open Synaptic or the Lubuntu Software Center and search for libusb-dev. Check the version information and verify it is 0.1. In my software center the version infomation looks like libusb-dev 2:0...

Re: Problem when trying to install nxtOSEK in Lubuntu

I used this command: ~$ sudo apt-get install scons libusb-dev libusb-0.1-4 as described in the guide. Shouldn't that give me the old version? Only the runtime lib will be the old one, the development lib has to be the old one, too. So you have to install libusb-dev in the 0.1 version. I always use ...

Hello all, I just want to thank you John to commit yourself to the compatibility of ncq / nxc / evc :-) And of course for the efford you put into this project at all! As long as the robots are doing nearly the same operations that is a straight forward way. Even a ivy bridge cpu has an i386 / virtua...

Re: EV3 knowledge base?

Hi Xander, thank you :-) Would this be OK to use? https://sourceforge.net/p/mindboards/ev3wiki/Home/ I just created it, should be fairly easy to use. The hosted app version on Sourceforge is kind of lame but functional. I put some information into it as comments. Not the best structure but at least ...

Re: EV3 linux hacking

Hello, You can write data to /mnt/ramdisk. This partition is stored to flash when shutting down and restored when starting up. So there is a risk of losing data while hacking until shutdown. Source code is also available: http://sourceforge.net/apps/phpbb/mindboards/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1893&p=16759#...
