Put BenF firmware on DSO201

I have a DSO201, serial E1BE8DE3, Licence 1818C8BC, Device Firmware Upgrade V3.22A

I did the following to put on BenF's firmware packaged by Alf (5th post down):

I held '-' (down? key) while turning on. I got a firmware upgrade screen.

I connected my DSO to my Linux laptop USB port. I got a "DFU V3_22_A" mounted device in Nautilus file manager.

I extracted 2 hex files: V353_LIB.HEX and V364_APP.HEX from Alf's zip file.

I copied (dragged) V353_LIB.HEX to DFU V3_22_A device. After a second, my DFU device vanished and then reappeared. File name had changed to .RDY.

I copied (dragged) V364_APP.HEX to DFU V3_22_A device. After a second, my DFU device vanished and then reappeared. File name had changed to .RDY.

I ejected DFU device.

I disconnected USB cable.

I turned off DSO and back on a few seconds later.

Beautiful! BenF Firmware now running.

Thanks Alf.
Thanks BenF.
Thanks to whoever designed and made this open hardware, open software DSO!

I got mine from this seller on ebay: ljstore2009
