Disaster Uploader Info

We’ve had some inquiries about uploading firmware for the DMC pedals, for future upgrades in the field.  Until now, we had a pretty solid method of uploading firmware on a Windows PC using a small application that’s available on our Files page.  Mac users have been out in the cold, though.  This really stinks because I’m a Mac user!  The issue was that the avrdude program that we can easily script on a Windows machine using Visual Basic or etc. installs in a different way on a Mac.  It’s not impossible to do, though…

With Disaster Uploader X, Mac users can now upload their firmware without having to install Arduino and compile from scratch.  Instructions and the download are on the Files page.

UPDATE:  Due to some strangeness with the previous version of Disaster Uploader X, please re-download and use v1.03.  This moves the programming process to its own Terminal window so that the user can see any error messages as they happen.  Sorry about the inconvenience.
