Guess what?! tjtag 3.0.2 RC2 doesn't play along with unbuffered cables hehe lucky me
As soon as I receive my new credit card's password (which will allow me to see its bill) that is trapped in postoffice because they were in strike, I will validate it in my paypal account and buy tornado's adapter.
Which one do you have Barry? Parallel or USB?
Parallel.. That is the only adapter I use. tornado's preferred adapter.
The software (zjtag) for the usb adapter needs a little work if you troll the forums but I have no hands on with either the usb adapter or the software. _________________ [Moderator Deleted]
I would pick parallel as well BUT it's not very "future" proof.
Most newer computers will NOT have a parallel (printer) port. USB to parallel adapters are a PITA. Computers see the USB device but need drivers to access the parallel device at the end of the USB cable. I don't know why, but timing issues always seems screwed up when using these?
So you can buy a parallel port card. Seems great, right? Well the issue with these is they never seem to use the "old" standard ports or interrupts and lots of software won't find them. Some of the software drivers claim "emulation" mode and the device seems to be at the old port/interrupt but my experience is they don't work.
All these new devices/ports are great on computers but the best ports for the DIY/hacker were/are the old ISA parallel/comm ports.
Hi Guys, do you have any updates regarding this? I would really like to have more info on how to do this as I am a noob in these things.. I think I needed to do a jtag on my e3000 coz it died on me months ago and doing serial didn't fix it. I hope you have more info of this (and some pictures too) _________________ Devices
