C.H.I.P. flashing problem
 
I have a C.H.I.P. $9-Computer from the now defunct Next Thing Co. on which I need to flash an updated OS. In the past I have not had a problem, but now I'm getting an error. The catch is that I was using a web application before and it is no longer available...
Code:

Any suggestions where to look?

Have you checked if the links for this now defunct company are still valid?

CollieJim 08-23-2019 11:35 AM

I have, and while they are active, they now belong to some shopping mob.

business_kid 08-24-2019 06:36 AM

In particular, there's a github link in that script, which (although I'm no expert) it appears the script downloads from. Have the shopping mob got that too?

CollieJim 08-24-2019 08:43 AM

No, that link appears good. I get CHIP-tools OK. Whether what I get is good is another question.

What's the hardware way in? In the old days it was eprom/eeprom and all things were easy. Nowadays I presume it's some serial input to flash memory?
