Hello, I have been using my Duet 3 6HC for about a year and now in conjunction with a Raspberry Pi 4. I am trying to add 1LC tool boards to it. I need to address the tool boards but when I ran the M952 but it come back with "Warning: M952: Command is not supported." I read that this is due to me needing to update my software.
Before updating I ran M115 B0 and got back "FIRMWARE_NAME: RepRapFirmware for Duet 3 v0.6 FIRMWARE_VERSION: 3.0beta11 ELECTRONICS: Duet 3 version v0.6 FIRMWARE_DATE: 2019-10-21b1"
After I updated and upgrading both through the raspberry pi command prompt and trying though uploading zip files to DWC. I still get the same firmware version when I run m115. Also now I am getting "Warning: Incompatible firmware, please upgrade as soon as possible" whenever I reboot.
I was going to try the windows bossa approach, but while my computer recognized the duet is plugged in bossa says it cannot connect. I have used lots of cords.
Also when I run m115 b10 it shows
"Board TOOL1LC firmware 3.0beta1 2019-10-13b6"
I don't really know what I am doing anymore. Please advise.
As you’re on a 3.0 beta firmware, you need to update to 3.0 release version first, then to the 3.3 release. Download the main zip file from here, and upload it in DWC: https://github.com/Duet3D/RepRapFirmware/releases/tag/3.0
After installing, check you’re on 3.0 before updating to 3.3.
Sorry, above is wrong for SBC attached Duet 3. I think there was an issue with some 3.0 betas, where they wouldn’t update with connected SBC. You can either disconnect SBC and update in standalone (as above) or erase firmware and update with BOSSA.
@gaaunapoi ah, found it. For this specific problem, see https://duet3d.dozuki.com/Wiki/Getting_Started_With_Duet_3#Section_Updating_Duet_3_from_RRF3_0_Beta_12_to_3_0_Final_via_DWC

@droftarts Thank you. I was successfully able to update the 6HC main board to version 3.3. I was only able to do it via Bossa method. I was unable to connect to the board at first because I was hesitant to jumper the erase pins as I feared bricking the board. I found that you have to jumper the erase pins to put the board into diagnostic mode to connect properly.
For reference for others. After I updated the main board when I ran: M952 B10 A20 I got: Warning: M952: Board 10 received unknown msg type 2010
I figured this was due to the tool board still being on v3.0beta when I ran m115 b10. So I ran M997 B10 which updated the board but the update message stayed on the screen for ever. After about 15 min I rebooted the Duet boards and m115 b10 did not work as the address had now been set to 121 again after the update. Now m115 b121 returns with showing the tool board on version 3.3 as well. now just to update the next 3 toolboards and change CAN addresses.
Thanks for the help!
@gaaunapoi updating in the future should be a lot easier now you’re on an up to date, non-beta firmware version!
Also, since you've updated using Bossa directly you may be missing some other required files needed for an in place firmware upgrade. So I would suggest that you upload the full firmware update zip file (as you would normally do when updating in the future) jus tot ensure you've got everything needed.
Upload that file to the system tab in DWC, don't extract it first.
