Hmmm... Tried the brew method. Obviously you have to have Xcode installed for it to work, though.
Will try that. (I'm on 10.6.8 hop that works)

Yep - success! Worked for me too. After installing Xcode 3.2.6 and fiddling with the commands it finally worked. Thanks! :-)

Great..  :)
Thanks for the feedback... I have no idea why xcode is required.
Do you remember the result of "dfu-util -l" before installing xcode ?

Yes: command not found - the installation of dfu-util failed before xcode.

@Xavier: XCode is needed (or at least the command line tools on 10.7 and up) because brew actually compile dfu-util and libusb.
No tools, no gcc, no compilation ;)

For my own synth, I am writing a script that won't need xcode or command line tools but will provide pre-compiled dfu-util and libusb.
Script is working on my 10.8 machine. Well, the script should work for all Intel Macs, but my precompiled dfu-util won't. It doesn't work on 10.6.
I think it will work on 10.7 and 10.9 but I do not have a computer with those OS to test it.

If some are willing to test the precompiled dfu-util, draw me a line, I will send files (basic Terminal skills required for this test tho).

EDIT: No Terminal skills required for the test. If you know how to double click a file you have enough skills ;)

I think I have something working for OSX 10.6.8 up to 10.9  :)

Hi Xavier new owner of a preenfm2 with bootloader 1.02... and still failing despite reading the above instructions. I've cd into the build folder in my downloads, installed xcode previously, but i'm getting this:

alexs-imac-70:build alexrajkovic$ dfu-util -a0 -d 0x0483:0xdf11 -D p2_boot_1.10.bin -R -s 0x8000000
dfu-util 0.7

Filter on vendor = 0x0483 product = 0xdf11
No DFU capable USB device found
 
I should add that I've shortcutted jmp3 before powering up the preen, and have the blank screen as expected

merci d'avance,
alex

Hi Alex,

The PreenFM DFU device is identified by "0x0483:0xdf11".
Do not try to upload a firmware to something different... I see "05ac:828b" in the second post.

Have you tried to plug a mini USB cable directly to the CERB40 board from you computer ?
(in adition the PreenFM needs to be powered by your usual cable USB or DC-in).

Thanks Xavier,
probably better if I aim for the right hole...

So now I get:

If you cut and paste the command line instruction from the WWW then the 0x part is mangled. It has somehow replaced the X with something similar looking.

Spot the difference:

0×8000000 - Wrong
0x8000000 - Right

Correct the X character.

Good catch 6581punk.

I didn't try under mac OS but, from your terminal, you should be able to do something like :
. ./install_bootloader.cmd
. ./install_firmware_overclocked.cmd

"." executes the file your specify by your current shell.


FYI if it works with a mini USB cable plug between you computer and the CERB40, and doesn't work with the Type B USB from your preen, it means your small cable (PCB->CERB40) has a problem.

you're right, that cleared it! thanks :)

It now shows boot loader v1.10 when reboot with the jumper off, but if i try to flash the new firmware from the USB stick by pressing Op, it hangs with a USB upgrade message (I'd previously copied the 2 bin files onto it)

alternatively, if I continue with Xavier's suggestions, I get this:

alexs-imac-70:build alexrajkovic$ . ./install_firmware_overclocked.cmd
