If usb connection not working it is possible to upgrade software on T8SG V2 Plus ?

My T8SG V2 Plus work well like radio station. I think for future upgrade when will be necessary.

I think that firmware in some way was loaded in my station on production time, but nobody check if USB connection work :)

I'm right ? May be not. To change mother board the total cost is 50$, and I do not have confidence that this will solve this issues.

Other suggestions ?

Perhaps the proper USB driver is not present. Are you on Windows 10? Is there any reaction on the PC when the radio is plugged in? Does the T8SG appear in the device manager list? (possibly under universal serial bus controllers, with a yellow triangle on the icon)

Can't really upgrade without being able to access the USB filesystem. Sometimes the filesystem needs to be updated along with the upgrade.

Thank you for answer. I have tried on Windows XP and 7, Ubuntu 16.04 and now trying hard on Ubunntu 18.04.

Sure I have installed drivers. On Windows 7 at a moment I ave received defective USB device error. Was the best :(

I try to use on Ubuntu 18.04, DeviatioUpload-0.9.0.jar. No success, because program run, but when start T8SG V2+ with ESC and Power buttons, program do not see any DFU device. I try to see what to need to setup in /etc/udev/rules for that.

A lot of time spent for that ...

It does sound like a problem with the connection. The USB interface doesn't have a lot of circuitry to got bad. If you haven't already check the connector pins inside and out, and the soldering and wiring. Check the pins of the MCU are soldered nicely. Use a known-good USB cable. That's about all the can go wrong except a problem with the MCU itself.

On the V2+ the USB +/- signal pins are on the bottom of the mcu (with tx facing away from you, back cover removed, battery down), the fourth and fifth pins from the bottom right corner. (Sorry can't get pic right now). These should be connected directly to two of the USB connector pins.

From my research :)

USBDM (D-) PA11 pin 44, USBDP (D+) PA12 pin 45

I have marked with red trackt for D+, and with blue D-. I don't know what can be ???? from picture ?

The MCU pin 29 enable USB. Probably resistor (180Ohm ???) to the left from "????" box is connected to this box. I think it can be damaged transistor or no connection from transistor to "????" box. With USB mode enabled has to be 3.3V on resistor (180Ohm ???).

Pin 29 PB10 I2C Tx SCL, Pin 30 PB11 I2C Rx SDA. I modify picture with new trackts from Pin 29. Thanks @vlad_vy !

I suppose that device ????? is something like ESDALC6V1W5, an array of diodes for ESD protection. Maybe I'm wrong, but for moment that is my supposition.

Is possible to use FTDI connected to A9 and A10 from STM32 ? I bought an mini development board with STM32F103RCT6 to make some experiments.

For moment I go with T12 Plus. T8SG Plus become my experimental station :)
