LEDs communicating flash status during update?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Curious about the feasibility of #FujiNet doing the following when performing a firmware update:

  • Blink the orange LED for erasing
  • Blink the blue LED for writing
  • White LED on solid for success
  • Orange LED on solid for failure

The idea is that it would give a quick visual indicator that the #FujiNet was receiving commands from the update host.

 

Is this something that might be workable?

I'd be surprised if it was, since you are overwriting the firmware, which would likely be required to run a program to do what you are asking. But I'll be glad to be wrong about this.

Nope, not possible. Besides, you can just watch the debug output in the flash tool. It tells you if it fails or shows you the FujiNet boot messages if success. It even shows progress while flashing

Fair enough.  The use case I was seeing for this was as a telltale on the hardware for what the flash tool was doing, but if it's not doable then it's a moot point :-D

yup, you'd basically be needing to modify the boot loader, given how cramped that is, that would be one hell of a challenge.
