"It does a lot under the hood to prevent you from needing to use the terminal. "
I am trying to get my devices upgraded and things are not going smoothly. Previously I used the unofficial getting started website but that is no longer valid since the links are outdated. When I attempt to proceed with the get updates with the old gui flasher the title bar says there is a new version available (of the flasher?) and the attempts to update the list of firmwares via “get versions” to get 1.3+ versions all return “false” results in the command prompt window that appears, but when done none show in the drop down of the flasher gui when looking for 1.3 versions.
I tried starting fresh from the official getting started page and though it says the gui flasher "does a lot under the hood to prevent you from needing to use the terminal. " the webpage that loads requires using a terminal to install the flasher in the first place. I have tried, but the commands for windows do not work in the python window that opened when I made sure it was updated as the instruction specify - Oh - perhaps I should try those commands in a standard command prompt window? I will try that and report back for those that are as confused as me
Ok, sounds like I was jumping the gun a bit for my skill set, funny because I thought I was late to the party
Looks like “Curtis” from the video and I both could not get the meshtastic gui flasher to load the way I think it was supposed to via the instructions, so Curtis updated the firmware via the command prompt. I will try it that way after I dissect the end of the video a bit.
