I am just starting with my first Gadgeteering project, and purchased a Raptor and several modules to start experimenting. Unfortunately, I didn’t get either an extender or breadboard, and it seems I need to update the tinyBooter.
Loader (TinyBooter) version information:
18.104.22.168 on this computer.
22.214.171.124 on this device.
The Loader (TinyBooter) not up to date. <<<
So I’m hoping for advice on shorting pin 8 and 10 on socket 3 without an extender or breadboard. It seems I could use a small piece of solid copper wire and carefully do it? One question, do they need to remain shorted throughout the entire process, or just while the device boots after hitting the reset button? Is there any way to confirm that you successfully entered ‘loader mode’?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated, I have a few days off right now and am anxious to start and don’t want to wait to get a part delivered.
