XBP Module with XBP24-ZB


I have some XBee Pro Modules (revB) and would like to flash it with the 2064 firmware and use it as ZB coordinator in Transparent Mode.
The problem is, X-CTU tells me:
“Unable to programmmodule.
Incompatible function set selected for current module.”

So do I have the wrong modem?

Best Regards

This worked for me when the reset trick refused to.

It is possible when using the USB board. You just have to go about it in a different manner.

  1. Take the module out of the interface board.
  2. Connect the interface board to the computer.
  3. Open X-CTU
  4. Go to “Modem Configuration”
  5. Put a check in the “Always update firmware” box
  6. Select proper modem from drop down menu,
  7. Select proper function set and firmware version
    from drop down menus.
  8. Click on the “Write” button. After a few seconds of
    trying to read the modem, you will get an Info box
    that says Action Needed. At this point, CAREFULLY
    insert the module into the interface board.
  9. You may get the info box again a short while after,
    just use the reset button on the interface board.

This should get you back up and running.

It can take a couple of tries but it worked for me.
