  1. Ha! I thought I didn't have an account,but it turns out I had made one a long time ago to get sweet beta firmware downloads. Glad it worked!
  2. I have a similar issue, my old flirc is on Firmware: v255.7.0 [0x020A07FF]. The GUI just says it's too new and won't update it. On ubuntu, the flirc_util is still bundled with the GUI. So what I did was: sudo chmod +x /usr/bin/flirc_util then you can run things like /usr/bin/flirc_util version That should tell you if it's working. Now to update it here is what I just had to do (what a pain in the balls). on Ubuntu: sudo apt-get remove flirc wget http://apt.flirc.tv/arch/x86_64/backup/flirc_1.2.6-1ubuntu1_amd64.deb sudo dpkg -i flirc_1.2.6-1ubuntu1_amd64.deb Flirc Then it updated the firmware to 2.6.0. Half way there! sudo apt-get remove flirc (gets rid of 1.2.6 version) sudo apt-get install flirc (re-installs 3.1.0) Flirc (now it prompts you to upgrade the firmware) I don't really enjoy having to scrape through archive.org to find the old repository to get an older version, kind of lame.
