Updated firmware GoPiGo not detected


#1

I have a dexter Labs gopigo kit after building the robot everything worked fine. I then updated the software and firmware with the DI Software update. after the update ran I can no longer get the robot to respond to any commands. I can log into the robot with VNC but scratch will not work and the gopigo control panel gives me a warning could not find a gopigo. I am getting a extension "RANDR’ missing on display in the terminal window.

The Raspberry pi is V3 and I am running it off the batteries

Could you create a test log?
@RobertLucian created a very nice tutorial on how to do that.
http://forum.dexterindustries.com/t/dht-sensor-responding-1/2815/2?u=graykevinb

That will provide useful info onto what is going wrong.

i have created the log not sure how to post it

I quote the log: Error: could not open file /dev/itc-0 or /dev/i2c/0: No such file or directory
@jeremy.grace01 had an identical error. Updating the firmware helped. The link to t thread if you want is here.

Anyways you may be thinking already updated. I’ve had firmware updates fail on my BrickPi3, and redoing the update fixed it. So its worth a shot.


#6

Hi @john.williams99,

Yes there was bug in our Firmware update when done through DI_update. It is resolved now. Now you should be able to do a software and then firmware update through DI_update application. It should work for you.

Please let us know if that works,
