Any chance we could get "Backup" and "Restore" options, that would automatically backup the file system, or select portions of it, and later restore them as well? That would encourage people to actually do those backups when installing a new version.

Do not ask me questions via PM. Ask in the forums, where I'll answer if I can.

I'm going to start working on the issues listed above soon. Now that the F12E is supported, We need to have the deviation-uploader working since the Walkera uploader doesn't work well with the DevoFS filesystem.

Before I could do that, I needed an easy way to setup the driver in Windows. This proved to be very challenging because:
(a) my code uses libusb and Walkera's uses a custom USB driver, and you can't have both installed at the same time. I needed a way to switch between them so users could go back to the Walkera driver if needed
(b) Windows 8 requires signed drivers. Creating one is a pain and costs ~$200
(c) solutions that work on Windows 8 don't work on WinXP
(d) I needed something easy to use

In the end, the solution isn't very elegant, but it works pretty well. I wrote an ayutohotkey script which can uninstall existing drivers and install either the STMicro/Walkera driver or a libusb driver using zadig. It makes it easy to switch between drivers with the press of a button. Zadig comes precompiled as a gui only app (there is a text mode but it sin't released as a binary and I wasn't able to get the toolchain fuctional to build it), so I use autohotkey to automate the navigation through the gui. I also added code to properly uninstall the drivers which wasn't as easy as I'd have hoped.

Anyhow, here is the zip:
www.deviationtx.com/downloads-new/catego...usbdrv-installer-1-0

It should work on Windows-XP through Windows8.1 and should only require unzipping and running the exe. You will need Administrator access of course to install the drivers.

Note that the actual DfuSe utitility (and the Deviation-Uploader) are not included. These can both be installed at the same time though, so there is no need to remove/reinstall them to switch between the 2.

I have uploaded a new version of the Java DFU uploader. I have rewritten a huge amount of the underlying code (though the interface remains the same). This is now the only supported way to install Deviation on the F12E. It may soon be the only way to install on the Devo7E as well, so I'd really like it if others could test it out.

You will need Java installed before proceeding.

I'll make a step-by-step set of instructions sooner or later, but it is pretty straight forward to use

Assuming you are on Windows, you need to 1st download:
www.deviationtx.com/downloads-new/catego...usbdrv-installer-1-0
Unzip, and run it.
Select 'Install Deviation USB driver', and Press 'Install'
Now download the latest version of the 'DeviationUpload' tool from here (currently 0.7.0):
www.deviationtx.com/downloads-new/category/161-dfu-usb-tool

Run the java program, and a GUI should appear.
plug in your Tx, and turn it on in programming mode, and it should be detected by the Uploader app.
Now press '...' by 'Filename' and selectthe zip file with your firmware (you do not need to unzip the firmware 1st!)
If this is the 1st time installing Deviation, you should select 'Format Root'
Press 'Install/Upgrade' and after some time the install should complete and you should be ready to go.

If you want to go back to using the Walkera installer, run the USBDrv install script again, and select 'Install Walkera USB driver'

Just tried to use your USB Driver installer. As soon I try execute gives me a compatibility error related with win32/64.
I'm using Win7 32bits. I tried with and without administrator rights.

Try this one instead. It is just the 32bit exe, you need to copy the exe to the directory from the 1.0 zip file

Windows 10 Pro Insider Preview Build 10130 - 32 bit, usb installer doesn't seem to do anything. Unblocked it, changed permissions and tried various compatibility but doesn't seem to do anything after I hit install - even after manually uninstalling dfuse to see if it made a difference. Java version 8 update 45, the java file doesn't seem to load completely, also after unblocking etc, this may be as a result of the usb not installing. I get the window but its blank on the inside. It's not serious for me atm, I have other pc's with older M$'s and a Debian box, this was more for your info sake.

Worked for me - checked Devo 10 (will check others I have tomorrow), Windows 8.1 64-bit. The only problem - I have high DPI display and everything is so small!

steve,
To be clear, you downloaded both the 1.0zip and the .32.zip unziupped both int ot he same directory, and ran the DFU Installer.32.exe?
Can you try to run the 'zadig_2_1_2.exe' script?
Then select Device->Create New Device
Name: STM DFU (WinUSB)
USB ID: 0483 DF11 (leave 3rd box empty)
Press 'Install Driver'

I want to make sure Zadig works properly on windows10. I'm going to try installing Windows10 32bit into a VM so I can try it myself, but that'll likely take a couple days.

Thanks PB. Now is working, but the driver installation is a little bit tricky. Sometimes works, sometimes don't.
After install Deviation USB driver, can't return to the old DFU driver with your utility. I need to replace Deviation driver reinstalling the Walkera DFU utility.
The java uploader works good. Only some minor graphic problems, probably related to my screen resolution, but not too bad.
For reference, tested with Devo 7e.

Ok was doing the driver install wrong, I got it to install now, and also tried the way above, it definitely seems to install. When running the java file then it comes up with an empty window. when I move my mouse around it it sort of uncovers sections but doesn't seem to work in any way or see the tx - switching tx on with ext pressed, both before starting the jar file and if I try after opening the jar file same response. Some images attached of the window.

It almost sounds like it is getting hung in the USB loop section which would prevent screen update. can you from a command-line run:
java -jar DeviationUpload-0.7.0.jar -l and see what it does. You can also try running without the -l (which should give you the GUI). You may get back-trace messages to the screen.
I finished downloading the Windows 10 Preview ISO. I will install it in a VM when I get a chance.

See attached from usbdview, seems it's installed however the status as such does not change if i turn the tx on into program mode or not. also the output from command line with the tx on and in program mode.

USBDview just sows which drivers are installed, not which devices are available. The log shows that it can find your device though there is something fishy since you shouldn't see that DEVO_UNKNOWN line. if you run thecmd with the tx off what does it show? Do you still see the 'DEVO_UNKNOWN'?
Did you try without '-l' to see if there are any errors?

It kind of looks like 2 different transmitters are being detected (the DEVO_UNKNOWN and the DEVO10), and the 1st one is being selected (which will probably break everything.

You could also try USBView (search google) to see what USB devices are plugged in

Yep probably what's stopping it. From a clean boot running the command I get the following without having connected any tx, purely just a wireless keyboard/mouse combo in one usb the rest of the usb's have nothing. I get this with or without the keyboard/mouse usb dongle plugged in.
<snip>
E:\Downloads\DFUInstaller.32(1)\DFU USBDrv Installer-1.0>java -jar DeviationUpload-0.7.0.jar -l
Found: Runtime [003f0:171d] cfg=0, intf=0, alt=0, name='1008:5917:Unknown'

It looks like that is the bluetooth, this is on a HP laptop btw - attached

that is weird. Only devices registered with libusb should have shown up I think.
I'll fix it to ignore everything but DFU devices

I can't get this Software to work with XP Pro.
How do I install driver with zadig_xp_2.1.2. Because DeviationUpload-0.7.0 does not detect my Devo 10 .
I need to get this working as I need to upgrade.
Thanks for all your hard work on this project.

Except for the DevoF12E, there is no good reason to use the DeviationUploader yet. You should grab Walkera's official downloader and use that. For various reasons, that is not possible for the F12E (at least when installing Deviation) so the only solution is the DeviationUploader. As I noted, I will look into the issue flagged.

I have released version 1.1 of the USB Driver installer. This one no longer supports XP, but it also no longer uses zadig (instead I use zadic which is a command-line version) so it is much more reliable. There is also a single version for both 32Bit and 64bit. tested on Win7,8.1, and 10(preview)

My next task will be to fix up the uploader itself

I ran the new tool, firstly uninstalling everything option then an install of the deviation dfu. Before plugging in the tx I ran the jar file and it loaded up fully - just for a look see. I then closed this window, plugged the tx in and did a backup of the tx filesystem to my hdd. Then switched tx off. Went to run the .jar file again and tried to run it and no-go, same as before, doesn't seem to load up fully/properly. I repeated the steps above, with a reboot between uninstalling the driver and still no-go. Tried putting tx on before running the jar file and no good. Could a different driver have installed/overwritten the deviation one on the fly when I plugged the tx in and simply copied the filesystem to my hdd as a backup - at that point the new deviation driver had already been installed beforehand when I did this. It may help, I have attached a report of usbdview whilst the devo8 is plugged in in dfu mode. Gimme some idea's to try & I will have a go.
