Hello Fanatics & Addicts!
Right, to the point...
i got a PIC board JB a mon th ago & its been fine...
then i had a few weeks off, come back and LOADS has happened!...... Hermes, open manager etc.......
Well, i wanna get my chip up to date, Hermes 4b firmware?
and use the latest open manager ? Is that the best?
The guy i got the JB device from (EBAY) gave me this info when i asked what i would need to know when i wanted to update...
"The board runs psgroopic hex files compiled for a pic18f4550 or 18f2550 with a bootloader with an offset of 0x800"
Well, i'm just a "normal guy", and that means little to me..... so i come to the place where it reads like ABC to you guys, for some help!
1 I need the right HEX to flash this...... its got no LED, just a button that u hold in when u insert to PC.
I have attached the docs that i got that should give the info as to what your dealing with...... the HEX i got with it is "PSGrooPICV1.3_BTL_Firmware.hex" --if that helps.
I dont wanna kill the board, as it does the job nice, just up to date it with the new advancements..!
2. whats the best manager out "now" and the best one to work with the firmware hex requested in the above question...
3 Thanks!....... a lot of folk ask a lot of stuff in here, any any help would be MOST grateful!
1: Your best bet is to read iLLNESS thread under homebrew and opensource. He is our resident PIC guru. Im sure if you can't find what you are looking for, you can message him and he will help you out. We're all friendly here for the most part

3: You're welcome.
use my hexes that are made for PICDEM (MCHPUSB).
i have 5 sections currently. they are as follows:
picdem (mchpusb) hexes
read the info post (its informative to new people) then move on over to the picdem section right after. use those hexes. i included the program to flash your pic in my first info thread (PDFUSB.zip) it has drivers and the app to run.
.. thanks for that........ i am going there right NOW.!
And this is the best Backup manager to use with that too..
.......... I am guessing this one........
I hope its right!
I have no LED on my PIC... if that makes a difference?
...and finaly, silly question......... i attached the original docs i got with the pics to this post (pdf)... just re-run thru the same procedure with the new hex as described in the above post..
