Skywriter XL only recognizes touch gestures


#1

Hello! So, on the advice of a team member, I used the update.py script and I’ve now learned that is not suitable for the XL, it was only for the HAT version. Is there anything I can do to fix my Skywriter? Or is it just completely borked now?

Ah, saw this in our support channel this morning! It sounds like you’ve applied the Skywriter HAT update to Skywriter which wont work properly since it expects a different electrode configuration.

You should try grabbing the Skywriter firmware from the link below and flashing it instead:

wget http://get.pimoroni.com/skywriter-fw.tgz

Extract:

tar -zxf skywriter-fw.tgz

Then run it:

cd skywriter-fw
sudo python3 update.py
