DVMEGA upgrade from Pi-Star 4.1.4

Post by g4txk »

I have been trying to upgrade my DVMEGA single band hotspot using the flash from Pi-Star method.
But no matter how I try I get the same problem. I have seen there was an issue with 4.0.0. But I wondered if that had been solved.
I am trying to upgrade from HR2.28 to V 3.19. I get the following prints when I run the ./flash_gpio.sh command.

[email protected](rw):dvmega$ sudo ./flash_gpio.sh
Warning: Stopping pistar-watchdog.service, but it can still be activated by:

Warning: Stopping dstarrepeater.service, but it can still be activated by:

Found DVMEGA_RH_V319_UNO.hex firmware...

Anyone able to help. Before I have to bite the bullet and buy a new unit.

You really should contact the DVMEGA team and ask for support.

I would buy a newer designed MMDVM_HS hat and ditch the DVMEGA entirely.
If someones previous actions are any indication of their future actions, then I predict the deletion and removal of access will happen at any moment. 7-11-2020.
