This howto explains how to update the firmware running on your rad1o from a binary release.
The rad1o firmware consists of these main parts:
See firmware:releases for the most recent version and a release history.
Alternatively, you can build the firmware yourself and flash the latest version from git
UPwhile you turn on the rad1o. it will now boot in
MSCmode, appearing as a mass storage device (like a USB stick) to the computer
tar -xzv --strip 1 -f ~/Downloads/rad1o-revXX.tgz sync
(The paths will probably be different on your system; For example, the mount point in Debian/Ubuntu/Mint may be in /media/[username]/[device name; e.g. 0FC0-CABC])
(The tar has the firmware files in a subdir, hence the
–strip 1 [at least rad1o-rev02.tgz does]; the new firmware files must go to the root of rad1o's file system, or the upgrade won't work.)
(OS X users: If you unpack and copy via the Finder a lot of resource fork files will be generated, so tar is preferred.)
Your rad1o should now run the most recently released firmware. You can check the release version of your firmware in the “INFO” menu.
