This is the link www.deviationtx.com/user-manual/user-manual-6-8-12 to the manual that applies to the current core version of deviationtx which the iRangeX iRx-IR8M is loaded with there is no specific manual for this TX. I hope this helps? Regards, Stefan :)

I used the excellent youtube 'iRangeX IRX-IR8M Firmware update' video, very clear for all steps, and all files required, and it worked a treat. The latest firmware version, as of now, on the Deviationtx website is dated 2018-1-31 Manual above is the correct one as the IR8M is DEVO 7E

Since iRangeX iRX-IR8M (t8sg-v5.x.x-2017-09-19) is somewhat different from Jumper T8SG I will place here the builds for iRangeX iRX-IR8M.

Previous changes:
* RUD and AIL reversed to comply with common direction for Deviation.
* AUX4 and AUX5 reversed to comply with common direction for Deviation.
* All switches reversed to comply with common direction for Deviation.
* batt_critical set to 3900 since iRX-IR8M can use 4xAA battery.
* LCD Internal Resistor Rate (Rb/Ra) set to 4 (0x24).
* Add support for 6 independent trims set.

Changes:
* Disable 4IN1_FLASH support, since it has not sense for transmitter with integrated 4in1 module.

Do not try to use DeviationUpload for devo7e-256, T8SG and IR8M, it will not work. Use Dfuse Upgrade Tools v2.31.

If you update the firmware and get error on startup: "Missing modules: A7105 ..." or something similar => Most likely it is filesystem problem. Try to format transmitter USB drive, copy filesystem and use "Safely Remove Hardware".

Build 2018-02-21
I'm getting Missing Modules: CRF6936 when first starting the TX after it has been powered off for a couple of minutes. I power the TX off again wait for about 20 seconds power back on and then the TX behaves OK until the next time? In further testing, I found that the "Missing Modules" issue only occurs after build 2018-01-31.

Kind Regards, Stefan :)

Build 2018-01-31 change is common for all transmitters, and other users havn't problems, so it's not a source of problem. I think it is filesystem problem, try to format transmitter USB drive, write filesystem and use "Safely Remove Hardware". Probably it can be a problem with I8RM hardware, this error has place with I8RM transmitters only.

For example, Jumper T8SG has 100% the same code, except one LCD setting and two channels reversed, but has not any I8RM problems.

Build 2018-01-31 is working fine
Build 2018-02-14 Missing Modules: CRF6936
Build 2018-02-22 Missing Modules: CRF6936

This problem isn't a filesystem problem I think you might have misunderstood my original post. The last two builds that follow 2018-01-31 are the ones that produce the Missing Modules issue. I have tried to upgrade to these numerous times I get the Missing Modules issue but as soon as I revert back to 2018-01-31 no CRF6936 issue.

The CRF6936 issue only occurs for me when the TX has been switched off for 2mins or longer in Builds 2018-02-14 and 2018-02-22.

2018-01-31 WORKS.

OK, I will enable 4in1 flash support to check if it is the reason. It it will work then 4IN1_FLASH support has error.

Since iRangeX iRX-IR8M (t8sg-v5.x.x-2017-09-19) is somewhat different from Jumper T8SG I will place here the builds for iRangeX iRX-IR8M.

Hi vlad_vy, I'm currently testing build 2018-03-14 to see if this fixes the Missing Modules CRF6936 message.

vlad_vy quote: "Changes:
* Enable 4IN1_FLASH support, to check if it is the reason for "Missing Modules: CRF6936" message."

The problem is now fixed.

Many Thanks, Regards, Stefan :)

I can't find the point of problem. Can you try next build with 4IN1_FLASH support disabled, but by different way. It will help localize the problem.

* Disable 4IN1_FLASH support by undefined HAS_4IN1_FLASH variable.

But for me, looks like it is timing issue specific for IR8M. There are two voltage regulators marked as "L306". These are making 3.3V from battery for MCU and Multiprotocol-module. I think that Multiprotocol-module get power later than MCU. Probably they have different output capacitors or different capacitor discharge rate after power off. The 4IN1_FLASH support a little delayed RF chips detection.

In that case we need a little delay RF chips detection. For example call PROTOCOL_InitModules() after GUI_DrawScreen():
    //Only do this after we've initialized all channel data so the saftey works
    PROTOCOL_InitModules();
    GUI_DrawScreen();

Can you test the build that has disabled 4IN1_FLASH support, but with delayed PROTOCOL_InitModules():

I have to agree it's worth a try I will test this out shortly and then update this post.

I have now fully tested Build: 2018-02-15 but the "Missing Modules: CYRF6936" has now returned.

Build: 2018-02-14 works fine when I reinstated it on this TX.

It seems that for whatever reason the 4IN1_FLASH support is necessary for the IR8M to function correctly. Perhaps it should be left intact as it's absense may adversely effect other aspects of this TX that have not as yet been reported?

Regards, Stefan

Are you really tested the build from my previous message = deviation-ir8m-v5.x.x-2018-03-15-delay.zip ?
www.deviationtx.com/media/kunena/attachm...2018-03-15-delay.zip

Or you tested deviation-ir8m-v5.x.x-2018-03-15.zip ?

I don't understand why it depends from "Power Off" time.

Sorry, it was a typo Build: 2018-03-15 was tested and failed with the same Missing Modules: CYRF6936 message.

Build: 2018-03-14 was reinstated and works fine.

Sorry for the confusion.
