I was talking about the F/W check mode put in the F/W back in November, not factory reset.  I thought it was 15 clicks to have it blink out F/W version installed on the light.  I have the D4V2.

By F/W you mean firmware? I have not heard of this, sorry.

To me, blinking out a date is incomprehensible. I modified my Anduril to blink out a true version #, like 1.1, same as we blink out an n.n voltage reading. I also added the firmware blink out to the grouping invoked by triple click, so on triple click you get:

  • voltage reading
  • temp reading
  • firmware version #

This is what I did on Narsil - seems logical to me. ?

Sounds logical to me too.

Sounds great but I'm not into modifying code and have no desire to do so.  I'm an electronics technician for over 30 years so hardware is my thing.

Dunno if you bought a programming cable, but if there's demand, I could look into building a .hex file of the latest Anduril mod'ed as described. This way you don't have to see even one line of that nasty 'C' code stuf! smile

Oh yeah, I bought the firmware programming dongle from Hank as soon as they were available. I think I was one of the first few to get one.  I love being able to put on the latest firmware whenever improvements are made.  I just put on the latest one 2020_03_18 this morning.

That's good! You got TK's latest improvements in thermal regulation. I wasn't sure how popular the programming dongle would be.

This is a crosspost from Joechina's thread for his Narsil M Cheat Sheets - just as I wrote about his, your cheat-sheets are a fabulous piece of work!

 

Would never know where to start without your diagrams handy. Incredible firmwares between Tom E and ToyKeeper's offerings.

 

Between all the various versions, settings, configurations in just Narsil, Bistro & Anduril, plus juggling all the other niche, budget and designer flashlights with their own UIs, it's becoming impossible to figure everything out without a guide. And I consider myself a techy, flashaholic with a good memory!

 

I'll even admit that many of the more advanced UIs I frequently end up resorting to a Reset, just to make sure I haven't left it in some ridiculous mode or advanced setting!

 

Was just wondering if there are any plans or status for the NarsilM v1.3 guide?

It's the default UI on the Astrolux S43 since 2018, and Banggood are even linking to draft documentation in their product pages:

 

Operation Instroctions:
Click Here To Get: User Manua1
Click Here To Get: User Manual2 ( Detailed Explanation Of The Manual )

 

Assume Joechina provided these and agreed to their dissemination, although there is no official version available on his Google Drive yet...

 

Also - as useful as the pocketable charts format from Joechina are, I love the diagrammatic flows you put together for Anduril. Any chance you might create something similar for NarsilM?

 

All the best and thanks again for all the hard work and continued efforts,

ARH
