Re: Firmware upgrade using Linux tool, requires no hardware

I just rebased the patch against the latest revision, it should apply without issues. You can check the patch's md5 sum using: wget -qO- http://boeglin.org/static/benq/0001-Add-programmer-for-the-MSTAR-I2C-ISP-protocol.patch | md5sum which should return 5d51dd882899c629118eb84a59a68a12. Also, you ca...

Re: Firmware upgrade using Linux tool, requires no hardware

Anyone working on Linux "auto firmware flashing" on Z series monitors? Nope, and I don't think it's a good idea, given how many reports we have of people who had to try multiple times, using different laptops, graphic cards or drivers, before succeeding. Providing an automated tool would only give ...

Yeah, I had some (silent) issues with the DNSSEC config of my domain. It should now be fixed (or soon, depending on the DNS caches on the way).

Re: Firmware upgrade using Linux tool, requires no hardware

RDID returned 0x20 0x15 0xc2. probe_spi_rdid_generic: id1 0x20, id2 0x15c2 Ah, you actually encountered a "known" bug : in some cases, the returned bytes are rotated, and flashrom cannot interpret them correctly. (it should have been "0xc2 0x20 0x15" instead of "0x20 0x15 0xc2") I've had the case w...

Re: Firmware upgrade using Linux tool, requires no hardware

When trying to identify the flash chip it's finding an 'unknown ST SPI chip' but going onto the step I get this: ubuntu@ubuntu:~/flashrom$ sudo ./flashrom -p mstarddc_spi:dev=/dev/i2c-7:49 -c "MX25L1605A/MX25L1606E" -r backup.bin Which gives me the error 'No EEPROM/flash device found'. Well, if the...

Re: Firmware upgrade using Linux tool, requires no hardware

It really great to have all these reports!

In the end, it works with all thee major graphics vendors : ATI, Nvidia and Intel.

It would also seem that laptop chipsets vary a lot, and it is safer to to the upgrade on a desktop PC, using a second display.

Re: How can I test if the 1350-Trick is working?

Well, in my case (XL2411Z), I used the same values as in the screenshot at http://www.blurbusters.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/create-custom-resolution-1350.png, except that instead of 1350, I put 1320 total lines, so that the pixel clock is 329.48 MHz, just a tiny bit under 330 MHz (the maximum v...
