MK312-BT Repo Update - Please check!


#1

I finally got around to updating the MK312-BT repo.

  • Added the latest v1.3 gerbers (still need to add eagle files)
  • Updated the README with board ordering instructions
  • Folded the assembly instructions into the README
  • Added forum links
  • Added Error 20 guidance

Please check over this and make sure I didn’t fuck anything up, and let me know if there’s anything else I should add.

Firmware distribution is still a bit of a problem that I’m not sure how to tackle, especially since ET yanked the upg files.

I’ve still got some green pcbs and black faceplates from 1.3r if anyone’s interested.

Yeah… I wonder why they did that. Are they on to us?


#3

With as far as the files have spread, and random people showing up on the forums from all over the world, I would figure so. They’re not dumb. Not to mention, it’s been over a decade since a box that would require an upgrade has been sold, so we were probably the only source of downloads. :slight_smile:

Seems as if the new gerbers are missing the value layers. Purpose or oversight?

Would providing .torrent files and/or magnet:// links be OK in regards to laws and provider TOS? That’s how we usually publicly distribute required firmware files for 3DS things.

Another option would be to provide a set of file hashes, and hoping ahem that someone will paste them together with dl locations on a paste page that shows up in internet search engines.

The rules of this discussion unfortunately do not allow a link. Although I personally think that the link to an anonymous file hosting service might not be so damaging.
Perhaps such a website www.mediafire.com. This is a good site for hosting anonymous files. When someone adds a “/file/” address and then writes the file name “vs6r6v9o2yhd1fp”, then maybe there will be a ready-made, cured and modified version for our clone what it is looking for.

If I violate any rules, I apologize and calmly delete this post.

By the way, when there is such a topic here, do you have anyone “information” about the original PC software to ET-312?
