Re: Licence change?

The primary reason why I started using OpenGD77 is that it is open source. I want to learn about ham radio, electronics, software... I want to see what's under the hood. Open source encourages people to test new versions for free. And write good manuals for free. And in bug tracking the more eyes yo...

Re: USB cable does not install as COM port

I have a Baofeng DM-5R PLUS. The original firmware displays BF-5R when starting. Some versions displayed RD-5R. Maybe this can even be changed via the original CPS? To install OpenRD5R firmware, you have to boot the radio into firmware upload mode. That is, press the two buttons around PTT and power...

Re: Licence change?

Thanks for the explanation! Impressive detective work! Even achieving the memory map is impressive! Well, the Radioddity binary is not a library. At least Radioddity did not release it as a library. I used the word "library", because with the wrappers it is used like a library. But as I said, I'm no...

Re: Licence change?

The License was never valid, because the project contains large sections of binary (almost have the binary size), for which there is no source code, because the firmware used sections of the official Radioddity firmware. I'm a layman, not a lawman. But isn't the Radioddity binary just a non-free li...

Re: Having issues with the built firmware

I spend literally hundreds if not thousands of hours a year on this firmware and the CPS Thanks, impressive work! If you publish the source code, others can help finding bugs and even help developing new features. That's how Linux has become so great. Linus Torvalds has not done everything by himse...

I have now renewed my code plug. All ok.
Do you know which change in your codeplug solved the problem?

Re: Restore factory firmware, did I goof up?

Hi Steve!

Have you read this: LOW BT VERSION

When the radio is in firmware update mode, it does not appear as a COM device, it's a HID. During other OpenGD77 operations (such as codeplug read/write) the radio is a COM device.

Re: Yet another CPS for Linux and MacOS X

And there is yet another Python script for codeplugs by LZ1CK, see:

Re: Yet another CPS for Linux and MacOS X

There is also a python script to load the firmware , but is not been used for a long time and I don't know if it works on all radio types I used gd-77_firmware_loader.py two weeks ago and it worked fine on my Baofeng DM-5R Plus. Also, someone wrote a python script to transfer the cideplug, but I do...
