Im running wine bottler on a Mac. Im connecting the USB cable to trainer port on the transmitter to COM4 and when I click open in the programmer it opens the port but the transmitter never actually connects, I tried COM3 and the same thing. Any idea whats going on or what Im doing wrong??

I used this script for updating the firmware from a mac (the hex from this repo and the go script from the linked one) https://github.com/mhils/flysky-updater

hope this will help

@Eric032990 I had difficulty getting this working on both my Mac and Windows 7 running in a VM on my Mac. I tried using the script suggested above to no avail. It worked without issue on a Windows 7 computer so I'd recommend you save yourself the hassle and borrow someone's Windows computer.

Funny thing, but I had an issue too and tried swapping the tx and rx wires in the plug and it worked...

Also you can get a stick PC running windows for under $100 now. Also awesome for media player. https://smile.amazon.com/AWOW-Intel-Computer-Stick-Windows/dp/B01M9E19QU/ref=sr_1_8?ie=UTF8&qid=1489089332&sr=8-8&keywords=windows+10+pc+stick

How to update firmware using MacOS.

  1. First you need USB-UART PL2303HX (or a cable if you have, or any other USB-UART)
  2. Plug in and go to http://www.prolific.com.tw/US/ShowProduct.aspx?p_id=229&pcid=41 to get drivers.
  3. Install driver, after finish reboot your computer
  4. Download HEX file "flyplus_beta_20_01_16.hex" from current repo and put it to the folder ~/Flysky
  5. Download file "flysky_updater.go" from https://github.com/mhils/flysky-updater and put it to the same folder ~/Flysky
  6. Install Golang with dependencies:

    cd ~/Flysky
    brew install go
    go get github.com/cheggaaa/pb
    go get github.com/tarm/serial
    go get gopkg.in/alecthomas/kingpin.v2

  7. Connect USB-UART the same way as it was described README.md and run firmware update mode.
  8. Run updater with command:

    go run flysky_updater.go /dev/tty.usbserial flyplus_beta_20_01_16.hex

Thats it.

I have an issue with @Dragonqos method on my mac.
First I had to add a dependency : go get github.com/AlecAivazis/survey
After that I could launch the update but encountered another error :
flysky_updater: error: unexpected /dev/tty.usbserial, try --help
exit status 1

Any idea ?
