Topic: Note about update-senoko battery firmware script
In case anyone followed the battery board firmware update steps in the recent CrowdSupply email verbatim, there's a little change to make. You should be running the script with sudo.
I think without root, the script can write the firmware okay, but it doesn't verify it. The script gets silently stuck in the loop:
# Wait for the board to show up on I2C while ! /usr/sbin/i2cget -f -y 0 0x20 0 2> /dev/null > /dev/null ...
and has to be killed with Ctrl-C.
I imagine there is a correct way to probe the battery board and check its firmware version using I2CTools but I haven't figured that out yet.
