Somewhere in the 'verse
The full job on a non-LE console is eight bits of solder! admittedly 5 of them are quite delicate solder points. However, There is not a great deal you can go wrong with (other than knocking off components with too much heat, or burying one with too much solder - but these should be plainly obvious!)

the key thing to remember is having the correct fw flashed to your JR-P
1. Identify if you have the upgrade PCB on your JR-P


2(A). if you HAVE the upgrade board you need to flash the JR-P with the file called
PICFLASH_E_1_0_4_JRP1_ISD.HEX
found in J-Runner Common folder.

2(B).if you DO NOT HAVE the upgrade board then use
PICFLASH_E_1_0_4_ISD_BIT.HEX

TIP



Now whilst flashing the new fw to the JR-P ensure that you do not get any ...x... "x"'s appear during write or verify! IF you do, try it again! If it persists then swap USB ports and try again!

During use of SonuS360 - if you get SPI Init Failed 0x0 message, reset the JR-P and try again!

Depending what has been done previously you may have to unplug USB and remove the power cord from console to "Reset" things and then try again!




In short its a fairly simple task to complete - and if things aren't going your way -
A. check soldering (99% of the time this is cause of failed attempts)
B. check FW on JR-P is correct

This should be stickied! I can not tell you how many people I have seen asking for help and it turned out they just needed to program their board. Good write up, btw.

THANK YOU!! :D

My programmer would not initialize and I couldn't figure out why!! Come to find out it was because I was shipped a v1.1 with the speed attachment and was programming it with the .hex for the v1.0 (no speed attachment)

THANK YOU AGAIN!! GREAT WRITE UP!! :D

THANK YOU TX!! ANOTHER GREAT PRODUCT!!

i'd say stop high jacking and open a new thread, but your problem is reading.
