 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Hi all,

I have got a WiFi shield and managed to make it work. Then I found out of a firmware update available and decided to do it.

The problem is I get an error message during the update and can't find a solution I've read many topics here and on other forums but can't find anyone with the same problem.

Code:
$ sudo sh ./ArduinoWifiShield_upgrade_mac.sh -f shield -a /Applications/Arduino.app/Contents/Resources/Java/

       Arduino WiFi Shield upgrade
=========================================

****Upgrade WiFi Shield firmware****

Error opening the file.
Something went wrong with creating the memory image.

Done. Remove the J3 jumper and press the RESET button on the shield.
Thank you!

I had to fix the update script because it contained a wrong path

Code:
WIFI_FW_PATH="/hardware/arduino/firmwares/wifi-shield"

instead of

Code:
WIFI_FW_PATH="/hardware/arduino/firmwares/wifishield/binary"

And that solved another issue (some files were not found because of the wrong path).

But the error

Code:
Error opening the file.
Something went wrong with creating the memory image.

stays, and now my wifi shield is not working smiley-sad I get this error when I run a sketch that was working previously

Code:
WiFi shield not present

I can't figure out where that error comes from.

Someone says the files might be corrupted and by downloading them again it could be fixed, but I have downloaded them from several sources and it didn't help

Sorry, I actually manage to do the update by modifying the location of the files not found previously, shield is working as expected now.
