1.2.10 of the python tool is out. You can get it with “pip install --upgrade meshtastic”
I added a bit of ‘syntactic sugar’ to make it easier for ham radio users to set their ID and turn off encryption:
meshtastic --port /dev/ttyUSB1 --set-ham K12345 Connected to radio Setting HAM ID to KI1345 and turning off encryption Writing modified channels to device
Also to help windows users (which seems to not understand “” is the empty argument on the commandline), you can now say “–setchan psk none” to turn off encryption.
Also “–setchan psk random” will assign a new (high quality) random AES256 key to the primary channel.
Also “–setchan psk default” will restore the standard ‘default’ (minimally secure, because it is in the source code for anyone to read) AES128 key.
