Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices are particularly vulnerable to cyberattacks, so firmware needs to be updated to ensure it is extensible, reliable, and secure, and removes the threat of bugs. For hardware to work, it needs software (a set of instructions) to tell it what to do.

  • The STM32CubeProgrammer will install the required DFU (direct firmware upload) drivers and can be used to flash the firmware to autopilots in DFU mode.
  • Lastly, vendor end-of-support impacts hardware, software, and firmware differently.
  • The smarter our cars become, the more there is for us hackers to tweak, and even in a head unit, you can find things to meaningfully improve given some reverse-engineering smarts.

Once downloaded, you only have to unzip it, and run the XLoader.exe on a windows machine. Not all USB convertor work for the download, if the download does not start after power up try a different brand USB convertor. On some machines you will need to unplug and plug back in the USB cable to make the PC understand that we switched from regular mode to bootloader mode. To compile firmware from source, refer to the developer guide. You can use odrivetool to back up and restore device configurations or transfer the configuration of one ODrive to another one.

Software development tools for that and other embedded processors would make executable code and data in the S-record format. PROM programmers would then read the S-record format and «burn» the data into the PROMs or EPROMs used in the embedded system. Variables and functions can be renamed by right clicking them inside the yellow box above and selecting the Rename option. By renaming the functions and variables as we begin to understand them, we will slowly pull back the cloak of obfuscation inherent to a decompiled binary or hex. In doing this, the initial name we give the function or variable often won’t be accurate, but just renaming functions based on what they do, such as “related_to_temperature?

  • The filename of the firmware for the MMU2S is ‘prusa3d_fw_MMU2board_x_x_x_’, where the x is the firmware version number.
  • It’s important to keep your printer updated to be able to use the latest implemented features, and avoid possible compatibility issues with Cura.
  • The process of some firmware updates is much like a regular software update, and some are applied wirelessly.
  • With the connections made and the Raspberry Pi powered up, the printer board should be getting power too.

Their instructions say just place in a update folder on sd card. A cave is a region of unused space in the target binary. Typically, you will find some extra space at the end of a section. You might get lucky and find some space between functions. Why these caves are in a given location can be a real mystery. In the FlashForge Finder’s firmware, the compiler and linker are probably aware of the storage constraints typical of embedded systems and have created a very small binary.

See the Micropython Hex file reference for up to date information. You are looking at the locations where reset and interrupt routines start. If someone feels at ease with such a development, I can outsource it…
