cardboardpig Posted May 6, 2014 Report Share Posted May 6, 2014 Hi. I recently received a flirc and after installing decided I should upgrade the firmware from v1.0 to that suggested by the flirc application (v2.4 if memory serves). The operating system I used is Windows 8.1 x64 and I used a usb3 port (I have no usb2 ports on the machine). After clicking upgrade the application immediately crashed and under device manager is now only listed as bootldr with a yellow exclamation mark indicating the drivers for this device are not installed. Each attempt to run the application after this resulted in an immediate crash. After waiting 10 minutes or so (just in case!) I unplugged the flirc and plugged it into my Windows 7 x64 machine in a usb2 port and installed the flirc software. Unfortunately it also could not load drivers. Has this bricked my flirc? Is there a way I can recover from this? I have a linux machine I can use if that will make a difference. This is incredibly frustrating - I didn't do anything untoward, just attempted to update the firmware using the supplied application.
