Weird problem fixed

Post by brentp »

I discovered and fixed a weird problem today. As it turns out, if the configuration contains the value '85', it would corrupt the configuration in the ignition controller, requiring a complete wipe and and re-update of the ignition config.

Since the value '85' represents the ASCII character 'U' (the controller's "Update" command) it would reset the update process in the middle of the *current* update process, causing data corruption.

Fortunately, it was an easy one line fix in the firmware code to prevent it from recognizing the update command during an update in process.

The latest .s19 file has been updated and is available on the downloads page.
