Hi guys, I received my Fez Cerb yesterday and was eagerly attempting to transfer my code developed on my Fez Raptor board.
I went through the usual procedures of ensuring that the latest Firmware and Bootloader were on the board via Fez Config, I achieved the all-clear on this but when trying to run my code all would build ok, when I tried to run in a debug session this would never work, at this point I was thinking it must be my code which is causing the issue till I decided to remove all my code and just have a single line to illuminate the Mainboard Led. On the first attempt I successfully got this to deploy but without changing anything I would try to deploy again and it would fail with the message something like “There is an issue with you hardware”. I tried all the reset, clean, rebuild and deploy methods but sometimes it would work and other times it would not.
At this point I’m going through forums like this looking for answers till I finally did something stupid which was to connect my DP USB Module with 12V DC Power adapter connected to the DC socket and next all I get from my board is a Red Blinking Led which suggests to me that it is dead.
I have since ordered another 2 Cerberus boards, but I’m thinking I surely must be doing something wrong here, I mean I managed to get the Raptor board up and running, I guess I’m just another frustrated Software guy who just wants to write code instead of getting tangled up in all the electronics ends of things, below is the last error output that VS 2010 showed on a failed deploy attempt. If there’s any suggestions then that would be great, I don’t want to kill another 2 Cerberus Boards.
