    i'm using a p12r with old firmware, from what I've read I cannot use the UBL to update, is this correct?
    can I jump right to v2.7? or is 2.0a meant for my equipment?
    either way, how do I update?
    currently using this[table][tr][td]App Version:[/td][td] [/td][td]1.1h[/td][/tr][tr][td]Stack Version:[/td][td] [/td][td]v5.31[/td][/tr][tr][td]Build Date:[/td][td] [/td][td]Oct 26 2011 11:49:17[/td][/tr][/table]

    thanks, I watched them both previously, i'll have to watch them again, maybe I missed something because it seems I can't update via Ethernet,
    keep getting this message
    Please reset device and invoke bootloader
    No Response from the device. Operation failed
    I can access the j1sys config screen via the ip address, tried rebooting the master on that screen and then hitting connect on the pic32 app but I get the same message

    To enable it to connect through ethernet you will need to open it and put a check in the box and type in the ip under ethernet.

    You will need to use a picit3 to upload the UBL firmware first. The version you have does not have the UBL firmware and prior to the UBL firmware the only way to update was through using a picit3. So you need to either get a picit3 or find someone who has one who can help.

    I just sent mine back to ed from j1sys and he updated them for me to the new version (p12s), cost around $50 usd per board.
