I just got a rainmaker, unfortunately it’s not on the latest firmware. I specifically asked Schneiders if it would come with latest firmware, and they said that “Intellijel always ships with latest firmware”, but that didn’t seem to be the case. So I’m eager get it updated, especially for the “boot into state when turned off” feature, which is the reason why I waited to buy until now!
I don’t have access to a windows (or mac) computer, I’m running linux (64bit). I stumpled across this old post on muffs which discusses updating the rainmaker from a linux computer:
Seems simple, involves running two commands (obviously with newer firmware files):
dfu-util -v -a 0 --dfuse-address 0x08000000 -D rainmaker_1.07.bin
quartus_pgmw Rainmaker\ v1.09.jic
dfu-utils I’ve used before, can’t seem to find the new .bin file however. Also while I’ve downloaded rainmaker_v143.jic, I have a hard time finding a download containing the quartus_pgmw, looked around on Intels web site, even made an account, but I’m quite lost frankly.
- Is updating the rainmaker possible under linux?
- Where do I find the .bin firmware for the display?
- Could you point me in the direction of the Intel software for the FPGA?
