sofirn IF25A - flashing new Andúril 2 - success!

So fired up by this thermal thing, I decided to flash the IF25A with the latest Andúril 2.
Now I’ve flashed the original firmware again. It is actually better.

You could permanently solder some thin wires to the attiny. Small interface board with pads or a tiny connector glued to the PCB so that it is accessible.

It’s so sad to learn that it’s difficult to flash the IF25A. I brought mine direct from sofirn, but it came with older firmware. I don’t like how the low mode comes on. I wish it had the same version of Anduril that the SP36 came with. Their website saids it did, but that’s not true.

Great that it worked out. Personnaly I solder a solid wire to the base of the spring and pull on it, the IF25’s driver (same construction) came off easily this way.

Now I wonder if I could flash Anduril on it (the stock firmware is proprietary with tint ramping), but I’m stil a bit clueless about firmware flashing.

Ah yes indeed, different MCU, I guess I’ll wait for the mini LT1 project.

This is a pretty cool setup! Thanks for sharing!! Would be nice to see pics to help visualize, but the description is pretty good.

There were missing 5K1 resistors?

The charging problem of missing resistors sounds like the same issue the LT1 had? I didn't follow that issue closely but they fixed it in newer shipped batches, I understand.

I received my IF25A couple days ago and noticed some messy contaminants on the MCPCB and brass contact button. Cleaned it up well with isop. alcohol and added a 20 AWG bypass that gives it a nice bump with a 40T.

I'll be upgrading Anduril as well but don't think I could take on your flashing mod because of parts, etc.

Nice! Look'n at it now. Any functional changes from TK's Anduril 2? What TK version is it based on?

Not sure if she's got a settled down version yet, but do you plan on keeping them in sync?

OK, but by strobe you mean beacon? Can both SOS and beacon can be disabled with compile switches?

As long as I can get batt check and temp check directly back to back, and I don't mind losing beacon and SOS.

@flashburn could you explain one more time how you got the driver out. In case you have pictures, that would be awesome. I would love to flash a more recent version on this flashlight.

Thank you. It was very nice of you to say that. Also, could you explain the adding the USB-C resistor process?

Thank you. Since you have updated your flashlight, do you know of any known bugs in the default firmware? I know there are additional features in the newer Anduril, but are you aware of any bugs in the stock firmware?

Thanks

Also I see that you also live in italy, do you have any problems receiving flashlights with included batteries?

Nice to hear you were successful! I’d like to give this a try if I can feel confident about the process.
