Ct5 - how to upgrade to alternative firmware?

Postby TrickyFish » Fri May 14, 2021 4:24 am

I have a Count to 5 pedal from Montreal Assembly. I bought in new in 2020.

I’ve been watching some YouTube clips lately demonstrating the new effects available from the alternative firmware. I think this different suite of effects will better suit my play style and I’d like to update my Ct5.

I’ve read the instructions on their website, but they are honestly very difficult to understand and I haven’t been able to make any headway. I am not great with computers; I use an Apple laptop.

Any advice on how to make this upgrade?

Apple instructions are hard. Easiest way is to head over to your buddy with a PC.

Hi,

First you need to open a terminal window in Mac os X .If you don't know how to do this you can use searchlight and look for "terminal" then launch the app after it finds it.

Once you have the terminal open go to this link and follow the steps.

https://mtlasm.com/count-to-5-firmware-update/

For step 1 you may have to add "sudo" in front of the command and enter your password to get permissions to install homebrew.

So instead of

Code: Select all
/bin/bash -c “$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install.sh)”


You may have to enter

Code: Select all
sudo /bin/bash -c “$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install.sh)”


You will then be prompted for your password (this is the same password you use to login to your computer).

Trouble shooting will be much easier if you can state at which step in the instructions you are having issues with though.

It does work.

Does this new STM32CubeProgrammer work as well to update the CT5?

Ok thank you! I'm a MacOS user, and I wasn't able to find the dfuse for this platform.

are there here ANY Mac OS user who can help and explain me how the heck do I update my CT5?
I am not familiar with the terminal and all it's commands, I tried DFU-Util but I don't understand how to send the file to CT5.
Also vey strange: I tried to download and instal the official STM32CubeProgrammer, but every time I click the icon to instal it... nothings happens!


EDIT: I was able to solve the problem, and upload the firmware with the DFU-Util.
The issue was caused by a mismatch in the path where I first saved the files.
