18. …but for that you need to

know the UDP Address and

Port Number. What if, you don’t

know these? Then you have a

problem, unless you have the

Deviser S7000.

many cases, users have to

press a certain button or key

when turning on the receiver

to change from launch mode

to update mode.

The new firmware version

for the DEVISER S7000 also

requires a new bootloader,

which means the bootloader

needs to be updated before

anything else. This is a very

critical step, since any device

must have a functioning boot-

loader. If the bootloader fails,

the device invariable fails as

well. This means you have to

make absolutely sure noth-

ing can interrupt the update

process for the bootloader.

If that happens, you have

successfully destroyed the

bootloader and will end up

scratching your head in de-

spair. If our word is anything

to go by, we’d fully charge the

battery of the S7000 before

even thinking about updating

the bootloader. Apparently,

Deviser follows a cautious ap-

proach too, since the menu

item required can only by ac-

cessed when the power pack

is attached to the meter.

The actual preparation for

updating the bootloader is a

very streamlined process: All

we had to do was unzip the

compressed archive onto a

USB storage medium. This

resulted in the creation of a

new directory labelled “devis-

er_s7000”, which includes all

files required for the update

sequence, including boot-

loader update.

This USB storage medium

needs to be connected to the

USB port of the S7000 be-

fore the meter is turned on –

pressing the button with the

screwdriver icon at the same

time. This will activate a spe-

cial update menu of the cur-

rently installed bootloader.

We should note at this stage

that you can initiate updates

both via USB and over the lo-

cal network using TFTP, an

option that is quite extraor-

dinary among signals meters.

Selecting the USB option as

a next step will launch anoth-

er menu indicating the vari-

ous functional areas of the

meter that can be updated:
