DirtyHairy Posted October 21, 2019 Share Posted October 21, 2019 (edited) Hi all! Over the last year there have been several versions of the UnoCart firmware floating around. In order to reduce the confusion and have a consistent versioning scheme, we (@electrotrains, @ZackAttack and myself) have decided to make future firmware upgrades available on Github. Firmware is versioned (the current release is v09), and the firmware identifies its version at the bottom of the menu (the current release reads "R.EDWARDS. 9"). For some time now, the firmware shipped on new UnoCarts supports @ZackAttack's ACE format. ACE is not only yet another scheme for ARM-enabled games, but it also allows to flash new firmware directly from the SD. Just download the "update.bin" from Github to the SD card and launch it from the menu. Don't turn off the 2600 until the screen shows "UPDATE COMPLETE". As an alternative (or in the unlikely event of a SD update gone wrong), you can flash the firmware ("firmware.hex") directly using an ST-LINK/V2 USB programmer. You don't have to get the real deal from STM, there are cheap chinese clones available on Ebay and Amazon for a few bucks that work fine. @MacRorie has posted a video of how to this here. If you are on Linux or MacOS, you can use the open source stlink tools to flash (you'll need the "firmware.bin" file for that). The current release v09 is an update over the previously released firmware versions and provides support for 256k BF/BFSC, 128k DF/DFSC and for the Pink Panther Prototype ? Download from Github, grab your UnoCarts and enjoy! Edited October 21, 2019 by DirtyHairy 8 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
