Duet 3 firmware update issues



  • Hello!

    I have been trying to update my Duet 3 to the latest firmware (3.1.1)
    using RPi and Bossa with no luck.

    The board shipped with 3.0 beta12, went through the standard procedure then (via usb/Bossa) when setting up
    the card the very first time, (I did not had the RPi at that time). 3.1.0 Firmware update via Bossa vent fine, verification
    OK, after reboot the board went completely silent, no communication with Paneldue. Sat down, scratched my head
    and rolled back to 3.01 RC5. Card booted fine. I suspected, that Paneldue firmware 1.17 has to be updated before attempting again.

    Then, now today, decided to roll the dice again. This time through RPi,
    everything went smoothly, everything updated fine without errors. Booted up the Duet3,
    saw 3.01 RC5 still there.

    Then uploaded Duet3Firmware_MB6HC.bin via DWC, installed and boom -

    DCS unavailable.
    Also Paneldue is unresponsive, shows "connecting".
    Before rolling back to 3.01 RC5, I wanted to ask,
    how can I fix this?

    ::EDIT
    Used the erase jumper, downloaded the 3.1.1 Duet3Firmware_MB6HC.bin again and flashed
    the firmware via Bossa. Everything went smoothly, the outcome is still the same, Paneldue does not see the board
    and can't connect via DWC.

    Please read the release notes for firmware 3.1 to see the command that you need to add to config.g to support PanelDue, and for other changes you may need to make.



  • Thanks,
    I will add the appropriate line to my config.g

    Got the 3.1.1 RFF running on Duet 3.

    PS.
    As a newcomer to the Duet ecosystem, I find that it would help
    if I could generate the new config.g file (for 3.1.1, using Reprap Configurator),
    already with the enabled Paneldue settings.

    Thanks for the feedback. As a new user it can be very difficult to catch all the nuances and edge case gotchas. The config tool is always being updated, but sometimes it is not updated immediately in line with firmware changes. This is why the release notes are important to read and understand. As a fall back to that, the forum is a quick way to get accurate information.
