it is possible to connect your module to a computer in order to save and restore preset data. beware, this is command-line heavy.
WARNING. while we’re confident with this procedure, it is an advanced use and command line familiarity is assumed. if you brick your module, we can fix it, but we will require you pay round trip shipping.
have dfu-programmer installed, as described in the firmware update section.
- open a terminal.
- get into a folder where you want to store your files.
- power up the module while holding the PRESET key. this starts the WW in bootloader mode.
- connect a USB A-A cable to the computer.
to save your current preset data, type:
dfu-programmer at32uc3b0256 read > n.hex
where “n.hex” is the name of your file. it must have .hex as an extension.
at this point your unit is still in bootloader mode. you are not done. you now want to either:
- reactivate the module, if you were simply backing up your progress,
- restore an previous preset data file, or
- start with a fresh, blank preset bank
to re-activate your module:
dfu-programmer at32uc3b0256 launch
to restore a “n.hex” file (get into bootloader mode first):
dfu-programmer at32uc3b0256 erase dfu-programmer at32uc3b0256 flash n.hex dfu-programmer at32uc3b0256 launch
to clear out the presets and start fresh, simply flash a factory firmware, downloaded from the github. see firmware update.
note: the entire flash is read and written, including the program data, so there is no portability between firmware versions. (ie, presets from WW 1.1 will not work with WW 1.4).
