Just got my CK3i to Nand-X cable today.

Ended up being super easy on Win7 64 bit with your tutorial Ubergeek. Thanks.

I used a MOLEX power supply to power my CK3i. For anyone having issues with powering thru their USB port or a powered USB hub, try a MOLEX power supply connected to your CK3i.
You're SUPPOSED to power the ck3 with molex. How did you expect it to work otherwise ? lol

For All That are having the Failed autobaoud whit an old CK3 Pro, (NOT REV D ONE). Just Put the Cable Jumper like you put on The REV D. For Me It works like a charm!!!

Hope It helps anyone.
I was under the impression this wasn't necessary for the non rev D version as I've been reading, but maybe it really is necessary. Can anyone else confirm if this is true?

i'm not sure if my revision d is a clone but the PL2303 chip doesn't have pin 1 on mine (mostl likely a clone)... no pin 1 at all very weird... i suppose that's why i was getting the failed to autobaud error on mine. but then i have an old non-rev d (no com-usb switch), and i couldn't do the update properly with flashmagic either, finally i managed to update it with xtractor2.3

Updated my nandx to ArmV3 and now when I try to use NandPro3.0 I get "Looking for USB Device can not continue.." It worked just fine with NandPro 2.0.. Any ideas?

It is recognized in Device manager, even nandpro 2.0 recognizes but gives you a arm error. I just dont know why it doesnt go past looking for usb device.
I'm getting the same error here. Updated and verified everything just fine, even read every single post here to see if anyone else was having a similar problem. I also tried another NAND-x that was NIB and un-updated. NandPro v3.0 throws out the, "Incompatible ARM firmware for this version of NandPro!" error. I was getting the Autobaud error, until I flicked the power on and immediately started the update through flashmagic as per OP.

I am running Win 7 x64 if that makes any difference at all. I did make a DIY cable (have the Team-X on order currently) and I followed the DIY thread to a T and have properly soldered and heatshrink insulated the five wires. I also have installed, uninstalled, and reinstalled several different versions of the drivers for the Nand-X (but only versions found in this thread, the last set being the one that coolshrimp posted). I'd really like to get this sorted, but I understand that I'm new to the RGH and, as such, am prone to making mistakes (you should've seen me when I did my first JTAG!). Thanks for any and all help, it is greatly appreciated!

I just used this thread to triple check my update cable and I do have everything wired correctly. Thanks for the heads up, I'll definitely fix my ordered cables as necessary. Unfortunately, I am still having my issue. It just has to be down to something that I am doing wrong. Oh well, I'll sleep on it and attack it from another angle in the morning, who knows, maybe I'll figure it out in my sleep. It wouldn't be the first time!

edit: BTW, got it sorted. I didn't have the power cable plugged into the power brick far enough. HURR! I actually woke myself up last night thinking about checking that cord. Luckily, I went back to sleep and waited until morning or else I would've been up all night finishing the install. So, to sum up, don't be a f**ktard.

I used CK3i in all process. I first realized from the connection picture shown I should connect both molex and USB to make sure every step in the process will not have anything wrong accidentally happens.:)

hello,trying to Update NAND-X Using A CK3i keep getting failed to autobaud - step 1.have all officail tx cables,get red light for power,wont update and if plug in usb to nand x only get a red light,should be getting a red and orange leds.computer wont even detect nand x,all worked fine till tried to update,im guessing its the bootlaoder,any help on getting the bootlaoder back as the nand x just comes on with red light for power,when usb plugged into nand x to use as normal.

I am getting the autobaud error on flashing. Using:

- CK3i (purchased 2 weeks ago)
- Nand-x (purchased 2 weeks ago)
- CK3 -> Nand-x update cable (brand new, double-checked for correct wiring)

I've tried it on 3 machines:

Windows XP laptop
Windows 7 x64 PC
Windoes 7 x64 laptop

Blue light on CK3i (with molex), red light on the Nand-x. 9600, correct port, correct chip. Drivers installed for both. Have tried turning it on after clicking start, 12 and 14.745. CK3i drivers installed. Running as admin on Win 7 machines.

The only thing I haven't tried is a powered USB hub... I don't have one and don't want to throw more money at the problem just to get the Nand-x updated. Out of ideas!

Anyone in London want to flash it for me? :)

EDIT: I read Xecuter saying "I also got the autobaud error when the HEX file wasn't selected correctly" ... my .hex file is just in the root folder of c:

Try a baud rate of 7200, Thats what worked for me when I was getting autobaud errors until I knocked down the speed,
I had the rate on 12 mhz also.
Win7 64bit, Hex file was on another Hard drive, Not my boot drive.

Sorry, I'm in London UK but many thanks(givings) anyhow.

@gargoyle67 Thanks for the tip, but it didn't help. No luck on slower Baud rates.

If it helps, my Nand-x must be an older one as it has a yellow LED, not a green.

@hansrolo,
mmm does sound strange, Shouldn't make a difference that it's an older Nand-x, I'm in clacton-on-sea, essex if you wanted to post it to me to try to flash.
