I pulled out my (2) Emlid Reach RS units with old Intel Edison chips. Had old firmware on them. Wanted to use the new ReachView 3, so have to flash to newer firmware.
Couldn’t get the units installed in Windows 10 for the life of me. Stumbled across a possible solution here in the community hopefully. Had to hold down SHIFT key while powering down Windows 10 to get to the Advanced options mode at startup to install unsigned drivers.
Seemed to install the unsigned drivers this time.
Here is the post (thanks to @ cojeffj:
So the the Reach Firmware Flash Tool 1.4.1 detected the unit finally.
It had an option to “Use downloaded firmware 26.0 (latest)”.
So naturally did that instead of using my prior downloaded firmware v2.24.2 from docs.
Is the v26.0 beta or something? Since it offered this to download and flash, will this be ok?
Ok, guess it’s not beta:
Both the ROVER and BASE finished flashing. But now the BASE will NOT power on or anything. GREAT. : / I plugged usb cable into wall plug hoping it may need more juice or something, but doubt it. Before I flashed them, the batteries were fine. Wonderful.
UPDATE: After letting BASE sit on charger 10 minutes or so, it powers back on. What the hell ever.
In the Device Manager, shows my ROVER is under Other Devices > Reach but now says drivers are not installed (Code 28). All lights solid after plugging in to usb port on pc. Have to hold down power button much longer for power down?
