  • May 29, 2022 Flash IT Mode Firmware to H710P
    flash both linux and dos iso into two separate usb sticks remove raid controller battery - and dont put it back factory reset bios, pull power, pull battery, completely clear all settings put DOS usb in first, and boot into it Get into system boot menu Enables you to enter System Setup (BIOS) . Enables you to enter system services and starts Lifecycle Controller (for iDRAC/Lifecyle Contoller enabled systems) Enables you to enter Boot Manager.
  • Nov 7, 2021 Secondary MCU for AXDL
    initial plan found out that the attiny85 is not a supported device in klipper. using atmega328p dev board instead Flashed Klipper Firmware on Arduino Nano # make menuconfig disabled low level config pulled down the compiled file, named the file firmware.hex had avrdude from platformio $ ~/.platformio/packages/tool-avrdude/avrdude -v -p atmega328p -C $HOME/.platformio/packages/tool-avrdude/avrdude.conf -c arduino -b 57600 -D -P /dev/ttyUSB0 -U flash:w:firmware.hex:i Using Arduino Nano Atmega328P # adxl345 - this on has on board voltage regulator
  • Apr 17, 2020 Scratchpad for Homelab
    Initial setup # hassio running on VM esphome installed Network info # iw dev - will show you all the wireless interface names Flashing using Tuya Convert # pulled image and build as Tuya-convert instructions after pull did docker-compose exec tuya bash will enable interaction to the container run it the container and see the screen do screen -ls to see all the screen running do screen -r to attach to the screen to see the info all of this is sitting in the base /usr/bin/tuya-convert/script/*.
  • May 3, 2019 Sainsmart RYC GRBL V2 Upgrade
    GRBL has been optimized for Ardunio’s ATmega328p. So most configurations out there will use the Arduino Uno and a CNC shield. I decide to go with the Sainsmart RYC-GRBL-V2 hoping it would work out of the box. The reason why this is a long post is because it didn’t work out of the box. To get it up and running these are the list of things I changed to get it working.
