[From July 11th] New Release R2021 07 11

Post by VK3KYY » Sun Jul 11, 2021 11:21 am

Thanks to Daniel F1RMB there is now a new release

Firmware files can be downloaded from here

https://www.opengd77.com/downloads/rele ... /firmware/

Voice prompts and source code etc are in the usual folders

https://www.opengd77.com/downloads/rele ... 021071101/

Voice prompts are now available in 2 speeds. Normal (1 x) and faster (1.25 x)

Currently, because of work and personal committiments, I have hardly any time to work on the firmware or even to read the forum.

This release has been entirely created by Daniel F1RMB.

Details of the changes since last public Beta


* Fix display bug:
- if VFO and Channel are set on the same frequency, but different mode, the screen is displaying the DMR QSO info on FM screen.
- some delayed rendering was done on the wrong screen.
* Fix voice prompts:
- crashing.
- silent prompts.
- less cracky sound (w or w/o receiving signal)
- wrong menu name announcement.
* Enhance Monitor mode with DMR detection first.
* GD-77S:
- clear TS override when a channel is selected (otherwise it's stuck on this overridden TS).
- fix "select tx" VP not announced on SK2 longpress.
- fix heart beat in RED only.
- fix TX stuck bug.
- fix heart beat leds blinking (Eco level > 0, no more fake event)
- add Eco Level menu mode (use default as 1, like every platforms).
- leave to the hotpot code the full control of the LEDs: no heartbeat.
* Toggles VFOs on LongPress <RED> (unsupported on the DM-1801).
* Fix manual mode backlight.
* Fix low battery handling (false triggering).
* Battery level in the header line is now blinking on low battery.
* Add DM-1801A support (no Left/Right keys, VFO/MR and A/B used instead).
* Spanish update from EA3BIL.
* Catalan update from EB3AM.
* German Fix from DG3GSP.
* Small cleanup with CTCSS.
* Lot of internal changes/fixes.

Really happy you guys are back after all the discussions. What you're doing for these radios is amazing - setting the standard! Using this version at the moment - all is fine.

Hi Dear friends, I kindly ask for information as they have replaced my radioddity gd-77. With a new one because the one I still had under warranty is completely blocked, and the manufacturer has replaced it, however I tried to insert another Firmware but nothing to do. Coming to the starting point, the new gd 77 is original from the factory but I cannot understand one thing once I have downloaded the open gd 77 Firmware to insert it into the radio do you need the factory software? Since after the withdrawal of Roger klark's project the procedure is completely different. Thanks for your availability. IZ8NVJ Vincenzo
