XLoader wont work

Post by gharryh » Fri Jul 01, 2016 9:02 pm

I wish to upgrade from version 0.8 to 0.9 using x-loader.
I dowloaded it from the link in the instructions (http://xloader.russemotto.com/)
And there the problems starts, after unpacking and starting the program my virus program kicks in and removes the program as it contains a virus.

Anny suggestions how to get the hex in my arduino.

Compile and install using the Arduino IDE?

I would be interested to hear if other people are running into similar issues. I have been seeing some spam on that website related to pornography and it does make me wonder why that site isnt getting controlled better.

0.8c is 9600 baud rate not 115200. Did you try that?

That's for communication with GRBL, once GRBL is running. Flashing GRBL to the Arduino is done by the bootloader. That's always 115,200 bps on an Arduino Uno; the GRBL version has no bearing on that.
