    Solution1: When programming, short the G0 to GND using the DuPont line. (For M5StickC)

    Solution2:Click here to download the serial chip firmware update tool (MacOS version only) , enter

  • The solution 2 working perfectly! Not need more a short-circuit between GND+GPIO0.

    Not only that, after upload a new sketch the M5Stick-C reset (to start the new sketch) automatically (as their normal operation).

    Thank you.

    OBS: I'm using MacOS Catalina (10.15.2), via USB-C -> Adapter USB-C to USB 3.0 -> M5-Stick-C USB to USB-C Cable. It is running perfectly.


  • M5Stack

    @nsfilho awesome.



  • @m5stack Here are the same:

    1. I'm using MacOS Catalina (10.15.2), via USB-C -> Adapter USB-C to USB 3.0 -> M5-Stick-C USB to USB-C
    2. If I use the correct dev it worked. There are two device-driver for one M5StickC:
    • cu.usbserial-00001014 ttyvf
    • cu.usbserial-6D522008B6 ttyw0

    The first device-driver worked!



  • @m5stack Sorry ... Extremely new with a M5StickC. Having issues trying to connect M5StickC to UIFlow.
    I think this is the issue I am having , since I have MacOS (Catalina), downloaded Solution2 file, not familiar with terminal commands. I can't make this file to run... help

    -chmod: ch552Updater_FW20200102_BTV231: No such file or directory

    What am I doing wrong?

    The instructions are incorrect. There should not be a space in between +x.

    cd ~/Downloads
    chmod +x ch552Updater_FW20200114_A2_BTV231.dms 
    

    Then follow the instructions as written above.



  • @world101 Thank you for the info.

    I did how you instructed and it just doesn't do any thing. The terminal just doesn't do anything the file doesn't open anything.

    Thanks.



  • @redes-io

    All I did was show you how to change the executable permissions of the file. That was your issue. You still need to follow the rest of the instructions they provided....

    “Then connect the M5StickC device to the computer, double-click to open the tool, follow the operation prompts, press the Enter key to run, and wait for the burning to complete.”



  • @world101 Very much appreciated, thank you for the reply!



  • @world101 Remember to remove the .dms file extension, which is wrongly added by Safari/MacOS. Then you should be able to execute the file by right-clicking and choosing "open in Terminal", then follow instructions.



  • Just want to confirm this solution as working for M5Stick-C and M5Atom... I'm on latest macOS 10.15.3 (19D76).


  • M5Stack

    @sergey-maysak Theoretically this solution applicable , and we already has test , you could try it.

    not working to me M5Atom LITE on osx 10.12.5



  • where is the G0 on M5Atom LITE??


  • M5Stack

    @cepics Why do you want to upgrade ... 10.12 can support the ATOM. This upgrade tool is for those systems that don't recognize the port such as MacOS Catalina



  • I have problems to upload code on M5StickC and M5Atom LITE.....
    no serial port available in tools/port menu..

    I have also burn with easyloader (on a win machine) to reset the modules

    osx 10.12.5
    arduino IDE 1.8.9


  • M5Stack

    @cepics you could try setup the baud to 115200. then try again. or contact our store. we will help you solve it. as soon as possible



  • @m5stack

    I'm on macos 10.15.3 and I'm asking myself too, where is G0 on the M5Atom Matrix? Although I was able to apply the described firmware, I'm not able to connect via UIFlow IDE nor Arduino IDE (1.8.9).

    By the way: almost no image gets displayed on Safari from the documentation — neither iPad nor mac.


  • M5Stack

    @herrlehmann M5Atom Matrix have not provided G0 Pin to outside. so the solustion 1 is for m5stickC. and could you use windows os test it again? maybe is the driver software problem .

    no way!!! Atom serial port doesn't appear in the serial port list..... more than one cable tested....



  • @m5stack

    No, the is (un)fortunately no Windows machine. I'm a little confused about the fact, that the above mentioned firmware is running without any problem. So there needs to be a connection between mac to m5atom in some way — or how is it writing to the device?
