[RDV2] Flashing error on Mac OS

Hi guys,

I'm having an issue flashing my PM3 RDV2.0 from Elechouse on Mac OS Mojave.  Here's the command and output:

Any help would be appreciated !

Re: [RDV2] Flashing error on Mac OS

First make sure you compile and flash latest RRG/Iceman repo targetting PM3OTHER …

Then  flash bootrom,  reset,  flash fullimage..

You might need to use the button trick,  and make sure to look for serial port changes after flashing bootrom... and kill modemmanager...

If you feel the love,

Re: [RDV2] Flashing error on Mac OS

pm --> ./client/flasher /dev/cu.usbmodem14101 -b bootrom/obj/bootrom.elf armsrc/obj/fullimage.elf

You have to run this command from the shell, not from the proxmark client.
