Hi,

would you care to explain a bit more?
I know, it can leave you speechless here. ;-)

Re: MSL5060

Gudmundur,

I finally have the solution for the stacked (master/slave) firmware update problem when the library is on 4.08 firmware (I suspect you found a workaround in the mean time).
The journey IS the reward.

Hi David
the library is still on 4.08 firmware, but I had another library with same case and I split it up in standalone and firmware upgrade was ok.

Re: MSL5060

Gudmundur,

I still have your email address, and can send you the detailed instructions for getting around the 4.08 firmware update issue.

There is a firmware bug in 4.08 which prevents firmware updates from succeeding in a master/slave configuration (regardless of which tool or method is used).

We were actually very close with the one workaround that I provided (powering down the slave). We did some testing a came up with workround without turning of power.
The journey IS the reward.
