I have 3 XBEE pro series 2 modules (XBP24-ZB) each connected to an arduino shield and an arduino. I had no problems communicating 1-to-1 using transparent mode but cannot switch the firmware to API.
The first XBEE (used to be co-ordinator) appears to have bricked. XCTU won’t load it, at all. Tried all the methods on this forum and other websites including bridging RST+GND, but nothing seems to work. I get error messages that
The second XBEE (one of the routers) loads perfectly well but as soon as I try to access firmware I get:
<< ERROR READING AT PARAMETERS, CONNECTION TIMED OUT >>
I try to perform the firmware change to API, but I don’t get anything. At least this still loads with the old parameters.
Besides being incredibly pissed at ruining one expensive XBEE, when I followed everything to the letter and will have to pay for a new one, I still can’ understand what is going on, and moreover I need this finished as soon as possible, and I can’t seem to switch AT to API.
- Is there any other way to try and recover the module besides XCTU’s recovery which is completely useless?
- How can I ultimately successfully switch from AT to API? Did anyone else encounter my problems?
Thanks and regards,
