PD FW Update Tool

This tool seems to do nothing when I try to update with it. I still have the same Cypress PD FW Version of 100F after using it. Am I doing something incorrectly here?

same here

Where do you find the FW version? I ran the update for mine (ver 008 on a z690-f) and it seemed to work. The utility went through the erase, flash and verify process with no errors, but I can't find anywhere that gives the FW version.

Rusty, they don't list the hardware ID, you'd need to know which exact piece of hardware you're updating. This doesn't matter for this app, as it doesn't matter if it's already the newer version or older, this app flashes the newest either way and it's not like it wasted hours to run so in the end you can be sure it's the hardware has the newest version. Sorry if this isn't the answer you wanted by like I said they'd have to identify the exact hardware.

No worries, thanks for the insight! I actually ran OSB to capture the window flashing up so fast, and it updated fine so I must be on the newest version. Just seemed weird that the version number can be looked up somewhere or that there isn't a tool to do that.

Great idea. Not weird more lazy,lol . The existing version number could easily be added to the app, and the app could state the number and cancel the update stating it's already at this version. Thanks for the reply.

The problem is it runs in background opening and closing quickly. Open terminal/powershell as admin and see default location. Copy the application and place it in the default location. Now open terminal as admin and type name of the application adding the.exe and run, terminal will stay open and you can see what happened, I've attached a pic. If you don't want to type in name either go to rename or properties and copy the name of the application not forgetting to add the .exe.

This can be used to run any app that opens and closes to quickly for you to see what happened.
