Thanks guy for the help. I had a few different issues actually that made it really confusing. I had changed the channel assignments on the transmitter which meant my right stick was being seen as throttle and is only 0 then I hold the stick down. So that was 1 arming issues. Then my rxrange was not correct.

Long story short I change the channel map in betaflight corrected my throttle safety. Then once I corrected my rxrange I was able to arm. I also changed my small_angle rate since sometimes my launch pad is not always level.

I'll update my thread I created in case anyone has a similar issue.

But I definitely learned some useful information to help me with my other quads.

Thanks again!

Hello,
i have my DevoF4 upgraded the memory with SST25VF032B to 4MB. At the first i have a problem with the memory, it couldn't be formatet. with my magnifying glass, i didn't see the error. With the microscope i saw the bad soldered point. After resoldering it works.

I flashed it with the Nightly devof4-XMS-v5.0.0-62a70a3. It works great with the normal file-system.

But i have a problem with the batt_alarm. I use 4x NIMH or alkaline battery and there is always the batt_alarm. If i change in the tx.ini the batt_alarm to 4000, after restart the TX, it will be again at 6000. How can i chage this permanent?

For the switch upgrade i must read this thread again. The 3x2 switches are connected to the buttons, similar the 7e.
The other switches mut connect to the processor. Is that right?

Greetings from Germany

You need change "batt_critical" to 3900, battery alarm can be set at transmitter settings.

Hi Vlad_vy ,
the "batt_critical" i ave cahnged in the tx.ini, that works.
On the transmitter can i only set batt_alarm between 6.00 and 8.50

In the target_defs.h from the sourc for devof4-XMS the Value is defined "#define MIN_BATTERY_ALARM 6000" . Could anyone change this in the source. I can't it, because the compiling is to complicated for me.

Placed pull request for changing battery alarm limits from 3,30V to 9,00V.

Hi guys

One year has passed since my range problem which was solved by a RF module change helped with this very forum :cheer:
During that time I haven't done a lot but i've bought everything to upgrade my F4 (a memory chip a 4 in 1 RF module) I was about to flash the deviation firmware but I'd like to be able to revert to stock firmware, unfortunately I'm unable to find it, it seems that the links are all dead. I'm looking for a 0.2A
I know it will be useless when the new memory chip will be soldered but I try to be safe.

I was looking to do things incrementally.
1/ Flash deviation firmware (non xms) via the DFU tool and try it with my ladybird
2/ install 4 in 1 RF module and try to set up my eachine e011
3/ solder the new memory chip and flash the xms version
4/ put some new switch

Am I in the right path?

HELP !!
I've think I' ve bricked my F4 I hope it's not permanent.
I haven't touch anything before flashing so my F4 has still stock RF module and memory chip.
I'm on my win 10 64 bits I've installed the Walkera USB driver via DFU USBDrv Installer-1.1
used the DfuSe V3.0.5 the F4 is recognized as :
STM device in DFU Mode
VendorID 0483
ProductID DF11
Version 0200

Uploaded the internal flash hopping it will help to revert in case of problem
then upgrade using deviation-devof4-v5.0.0-d90cb3b
I've recieved a message saying :
Your device was plugged in DFU mode
So it is impossible to make sure this file is correct for this device
but continue however.
unfortunatly after this the F4 will only boot to devention DEVO F4 Progeam Update
Ive tried to put back the uploaded file but dtill locked to the devention program Update.
I decide to try with the jar but before to do it I've tried to install the deviation USB driver but it says that's not the right version.
In any case the F4 never showed up in explorer (which is probably Ok since I've never reach the stage were it should)
So please Help me ....

Nothing is bricked, no worries, just a second...
Edit:
Follow the following steps, that should work:

1. Plug in USB Cable
2. Press and hold "EXT" while powering on
3. Start walkera dfuse tools, the TX should show up as Devo F4
4. Unzip the .zip file you downloaded
5. Select deviation-devof4-v5.0.0-d90cb3b.dfu file in Dfuse firmware upgrade tab
6. press upload
7. after it's finished, shut off the F4
8. Press and hold ENT while powering the F4 up again
9. A USB drive should show up
10. Format it, in case it asks for
11. Put copy devo.fs to this USB drive
12. Eject mass storage device in Windows
13. Power off F4,
14. Power on F4 - Deviation should show up

Thanks SirDomsen
I've found what the problem was as I was doing the right steps.
In fact I don't know why but my DFuse was not Walkera's one ...
After using the right one it's much better.
I get the flashing OK
reboot to USB was fine
I didn't have to reboot but I've delete the old devo.fs and put the new one OK
But still I have a small problem now probably because I have a mode 1 F4
so when booting it says that Ch3 is 14 where safe value is -100.
tried to hack it starting forcing my stick down but I can only reach -93
I guess I have to redo a devo.fs with the right config file.
Seems to be known as stated in an old post : Safe value

I'll keep you updated... and will probably post some other stupid questions.
I've read all the thread but it's not always easy when you are new to the deviation to get it right, as sometime you guess from other controller or refer to other threads ...
It seems that there are not so much F4 users.

And I still have to do the antenna mod (but I bought a 10 cm pigtail which is not enough)
change the memory chip which is a b to have ait scary
add some switches (seems to have different methods pins soldering, diode, arduino)
All that to be able to control a E011 which in the end might be silverlighted but that's another story to come :)

BTW the original devo firmware for the F4 is not present in the google drive of deviation site but as stated in the download page https://www.deviationtx.com/downloads-new/category/375-transmitter-stock-firmwares
it could be found on :
https://walkera-fans.de/downloads/ under Sender section

What firmware are you using? Also how many channels do you have? I've only got 7 but I haven't updated firmware in almost a year lol

I was referring to the original devo firmware in case of a switch back (I've edited the post).
I've downloaded the nightly and it seems fine, now I have to do the hardware upgrades...

You need to calibrate the sticks (all analog inputs) via Transmitter menu.
Set the right Mode Transmitter Menu

In fact it was not the calibration but I had to change the "mode" value in tx.ini to
mode=1
After that it was OK with my ladybird.

Today I've installed the 4 in 1 module and I was able to control my eachine E011 with the bayang protocol :cheer:
There was a non isolated wire in the original module which was going to the shield of the module, I haven't seen any picture of people reattaching it is it normal ?

Next step the switch mod...
