Here is a link to a great video for updating the firmware of the FEZ Cobra.
I followed that word for word without much issue… except that my first file transfer (upper case X) of TinyBooter hung at 3%. I clicked cancel and crossed my fingers that it wouldn’t “brick” my Cobra. Tera Term freaked out for a minute, but I was able to restart my transfer and everything went quickly and smoothly from there.
In Visual Studio, the FEZ project templates are a nice touch. I like the icon.
As mentioned in the release notes, I’m not able to deploy and run my old 4.0 projects (after upgrading to 4.1) and I can’t figure out why. There doesn’t seem to be much difference between the 4.0 and 4.1 project files. It was easy enough to just create a new 4.1 project and copy my code… but stuff like this really bugs me. Anyone know why the following error codes show up?
Link failure: some assembly references cannot be resolved!!
Assembly: SimpleTemperatureReporter (188.8.131.52) needs assembly 'GHIElectronics.NETMF.Hardware' (184.108.40.206)
Assembly: SimpleTemperatureReporter (220.127.116.11) needs assembly 'Microsoft.SPOT.Hardware' (4.0.1681.0)
Anyway, nicely done GHI! I bought 2 Arduinos years ago when it was just getting started, but I never managed to do much more than blink some LEDs in pretty colors with them (and I sunk [italic]dozens of hours[/italic] into getting various data logging/control projects going.
After a week or so with the Cobra, I’ve gotten Internet connected data loggers going with minimal fuss. If this is just the start, I’m really optimistic about finishing some projects that have been in my head for decades.
