Installing new boot loader instructions issue

Post by clublights » Fri Sep 18, 2020 4:26 pm

In the instructions it says "

Prepare for bootloader update

Close all applications running on PC and connect the device to a computer with a USB cable

Wait few seconds for USB device to be recognized in Explorer (e.g., USB Drive (E:))

Windows 10 should install driver automatically. Older versions of Windows might require manual driver installation. To manually install drivers

Download "TesterBootloaderDFU_drivers.zip" and extract the files to your desktop

Right-click "boot_usb.inf" and select "Install"

Update bootloader by running "TesterBootloaderDFU_v1.2.exe"

The program will automatically find the device and update bootloader "



It would not mount as a disk for me until AFTER I ran the "TesterBootloaderDFU_v1.2.exe" I spent 20 mins rather confused and thinking I had bricked my tester ,

Dunno if this was just me for some reason or the instructions are off a bit ,

So I guess in short if you are stuck with the white screen and nothing coming up as a USB drive .. run the TesterBootloaderDFU_v1.2.exe

The IQTester will show up as a USB drive only after installing the bootloader - the instructuons are a bit off.
