CPS not downloading and updating firmware files

Post by wb8grs » Mon Apr 19, 2021 4:23 am

I know I'm doing something wrong, but when in the Open GD-77 CPS, I click on "Extra", then select "Radio Type" ( which is a GD-77), then click on "Download and Update", then another screen opens that says" Select release version", but there is no file to select. I assumed the CPS would download the latest firmware files, but nothing is happening.

CPS is version R2021.03.02.01 Any idea what I am doing wrong? BTW, I had the GD-77 radio in DFU mode during this time.

Thanks,

Unfortunately, there is nothing to download. The files have been removed by the main developer of the OpenGD77 software. Please read the following:

WOW, I missed the download opportunity by one day. What do they say, "timing is everything" and in this case so true.

Can anyone direct me to a location where I would be able to download the Open GD77.sgl file and the Open DM1801.sgl file?

There still are some Telegram channels with OpenGD77 firmware archive: @opengd77_fw and @gd77sfirmware.

Did you get it working?

Currently i have another problem, i have a original cable from Radioddity GD77 but there is no "com-port" in device manager created. (tried a second cable too)
I set the firmware mode on gd77 and connected it to the usb port. Tried this on several Win10 machines. Connected it before install, connected it after install. No success.

Because of no com port, i am also not able to backup anything.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Jim

Did you use CPS to upload the Firmware?

Please share a link to the stand alone gd-77 firmware uploader.

Thanks

There is a standalone firmware loader exe for both Windows and Linux, here

https://github.com/rogerclarkmelbourne/ ... d_versions

There is a Python version here

https://github.com/rogerclarkmelbourne/ ... wareLoader

Unfortunatly the loader can no longer download the firmware directly as we are no longer allowed to host the firmware because of a screw up with the original software license document.
