old firmware download- SPAD.next problems with new firmware


Recommended Posts

I flashed to the latest firmware 1.5.4, and my CDU buttons are now not being recognized by SPAD.next. I'm convinced its a firmware problem, changing the hardware IDs and such. Is there a place to download older firmware to flash and try that?

I cannot remember how the bridge works but I did not know that SPAD.NEXT was needed even though I use it.   I do not want to risk it so I hope you get a answer.   Actually if the update just added the power off I may hold off, I use P3D

I run the current Hardware Firmware and it is not an Issue...  Spad runs fine with it.

 

SPAD has it's own integration with the device so that we can use it with MSFS (and P3D/XP) on the WTCJ4 / FBW A32NX / AS CRJ and the PMDG 737 ....

Thanks… that rules out the firmware being the problem. I’m having trouble getting my CDU to talk to spad at all. None of the buttons are responsive within the Spad screen- I’ve set up the pmdg for SDK reporting, and imported the CDU into spad along with the programming string from c0nnex that had all the buttons programmed. But the CDU device just sits there with the screen asking if I’m wanting to use the left or right CDU

The issue Is that you probably navigating the spad screens via the spad gui editing pages...  You need to hold the MENU key on the unit.  That will switch to the menu screen where you press the LSK 1 key to switch to the CDU 1 page.  I have used this for hours now as have numerous users in the spad discord.  It works...
