publicly accessible Quiver FW flashing
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Need to include instructions for flashing FW to the OHAI for beta but cannot provide links to private directories because the public can still access the quiver section if they know the URL
So where can I point towards that is public that has the ability to flash quiver FW?

@logan Go ahead and post the OHAI link draft on code, we have given those out to customers in a draft state before. We want to avoid posting links to internal only locations like own, discourse, oca, etc. We have gotten customers that want to follow along/help and cannot access these links. The unpublished OHAI should be fine.

@karrad I dont think you read that right. I need a publicly accessible location to flash firmware from to put in the OHAI, I cannot link to the current only known location as it is not publicly accessible.

@logan Ahh gotcha. Until we have T1250 fixed, there will not be an easy way for customers in the field.

Would pushing the install script to the repo satisfy the requirement? Should post to devel server under quiver.

@karrad Yes that would suffice

As long as it functions the same in that location as it does in its current location

Guess we will give it a try. If it doesn't work, go ahead and post the internal link. We will need to update it once T1250 is fixed.

We need to find a way to not use a link to shared-j still.

@karrad Is there a way to replace the shared-j link with a link to

@logan: Not when using the existing flashing script. It is based on shell wildcards, so it won't work on web based URLs. Seems like getting Cura to flash Quiver would be a better solution than redoing the flashing script.

@marcio Agreed. I am not sure how far off that functionality is.

@kent Would you like me to go ahead and add screenshots of the existing FW flashing process to the existing OHAI, or leave as is? I think the existing text instructions will suffice for beta.

@karrad @kent I tried this today, it isn't working from a cloned repo or from shared-j

We can now flash firmware from Cura so closing this ticket down.

Still needs updated step 2 here: before this ticket can be closed

firmware can be found here: and then what ever version we are on (currently

Step 2 updated with screenshots of current state of process; progress indicators and completion still not functional and will require an update later on.
