Manual CoDi flash
« on: February 22, 2020, 03:18:12 am »
Yes, I've tried the Flight Mode, Wifi Off, Do Not Disturb tips and my Cover Display is still not flashing.

There's a function to flash it manually, but where are the downloaded firmware files stored? I'll probably try deleting and re-downloading them first, if I can find them (No, they are not in Downloads).

On Planet's support site there are links for download.

However, frankly, it should not make any difference. I have done two CoDi updates and DND + flight mode have made the flashing go through just fine after a few tries.

OK, it works. For general reference, here's the sequence of events
  • Download the 2 files to /Dowmload (don't try this from Google Drive, it won't work)
  • Airplane Mode ON
  • Open Codi Assistant
  • press Advanced
  • Select Flash Image manually
  • Navigate to /Download and select the Firmware file, not the Resource file
  • At this stage you get thrown back to the desktop with the message that Codi Assistant keeps crashing. Ignore it. it is actually still running.
  • Re-open Codi Assistant
  • Press Flash Now
  • Spend the next twenty minutes in silent prayer.
  • Airplane Mode OFF
My working theory is that Codi Assistant was stuck on an incomplete download. By pointing it to a valid set of files I managed to clear that problem.

It's worth it. My Cosmo is running MUCH cooler and it looks like the battery will last better.
