Title: sendfirm.exe on Windows 10
Post by: chrisjj on August 11, 2021, 05:59:34 AM
Has anyone verified this works?

There's one report it does not. https://forums.rockbox.org/index.php/topic,43626.msg249039.html

Someone in that thread you linked says it works on Windows 10 once you get the device to mount in MTP mode. Sounds like mtp is glitchy in some windows 10 builds but can be worked around.

OK, but does sendfirm.exe really require MTP mode?

It is a utility for communicating with players over MTP, so yes MTP is required.

Ah. I'd thought it could use some older protocol instead, but clearly that's wrong. Thanks.

Do you require some help with a Gigabeat S? I am currently working on finishing the port so it can move to stable.
