Video driver fix

Postby vbriel » May Mon 04, 2009 2:52 pm

I should be posting a firmware update soon that makes the background color black, not blue as it was. What you need to update your replica 1 TE to the new firmware:

1. Propeller Tool software for windowz 2000 and above here:

2. serial cable that has all the wires, not just RX/TX and GND to the replica 1.

3. Install propeller tools, hook replica 1 TE to serial port and turn on replica 1 (no video or keyboard required to program). You must have a power supply hooked up to the replica 1 to turn on. On the propeller tools software press F7 and it should find the propeller chip on the replica 1. If not, recheck connections and power.

4. Load the updated firmware into the propeller tools program. Press F11 to program the EEPROM on the replica 1. What until finish and you are done.
