>> From 360lizard.com: [QUOTE] **EDIT: Over the weekend we spotted a bug (thanks to kombat for pointing it). We have released gecko 1.20 now, please update to it. Toolbox remains 1.34.
We have worked hard this last week preparing the new Gecko 1.19, we have fixed lots of issues with past versions that our beta tester team reported. (Many thanks to beta tester crew, you know who you are).
Another Important changes on this Gecko release are:
- Improved Winbond Unlock detection, now its instant notification, allowing you stop drilling even faster after successful unlock - Unlock Notification of Winbond now will perform a Flashing Screen and Audible Beep sound to notify user. (Sound requires buzzer add-on, details at bottom of the note). - Added support for many variants of firmware (no more FW unknown messages). - Support for add-in code for the Upcoming Buzzer for Lizard (details at bottom). - Unlock Sound on PC on Toolbox 1.34 - Some Bugs killed.
Please Note you need get the Gecko 1.19 and also the Toolbox 1.34 or above from our Downloads page. Remember also check if you have latest Filesets from our blog.
Also we got reports of people now doing a variant of the original Geremia's Kamikaze unlock, they are using a Soldering Iron for drilling the hole on the IC. Somebody calls the method "thermal nuclear unlock" but we feel itís un-proper since the heat does nothing to do with the unlock itself. Anyways itís a good method that may work for some users. We received this small video tutorial of it using our Lizard hardware. (Thanks to intensify906 for the video)
Itís also a good method to try, especially with our upcoming buzzer add-on for Lizard. (Sound notification at unlock). Please note we DO NOT RECOMMEND to lock the board again as its shown in the following video, its not required.
Lizard Buzzer add-on: We have had requests for many users (Russians mainly) to make an audible notification on the Lizard hardware, so we designed a simple buzzer add-on. This will open some possibilities like audio-visual unlock notification already implemented on code on Gecko 1.19. The following picture shows a hand soldered buzzer, the final add-on will be only 1 wire install (yes it will require open the Lizard case and solder 1 wire).
This add-on will be available in 1-2 weeks, we will post final pictures of the board in a few days.
