Also, Am I right in saying the labels for the 5V and GND are the wrong way round on the PCB silkscreen for the 330 power header? I assume this has been pointed out already and I've probably even read it but just in case?
Yes, the silkscreen polarity is inverted. This is something we should warn the people trying to upgrade the cards at home about.

I wanted to update my TF330 with burst mode firmware and my Rpi decided to die on me (not related it just died while i was preparing everything needed to do flashing)
I saw on one TF related yt stream that its possible to do this with 2$ worth usb cable can anyone give me some instructions which cable should i buy and how to properly connect it to board?

Also a bit TF unrelated question anyone knows what type screws are used in CD32 case and metal shielding inside (i've asked on on few amiga groups and forums and just got laughed off...)

Ok so I have done another HowTo program TFxxx,this time using the USB to serial adapter that uses the xc3sprog on a Windows 8 system but there should be a driver for Win 10 too .

I have included a zipped folder with some instructions the jed files and Driver for Win8

This is a link to the FTDI adapter I use, make sure its 3,3v as there is a 5v one

If you break something don`t come crying to me, this is at your own risk, if you`re not sure then ask or send it to one of us builders for an upgrade :)

Hey supaduper,

I'm updating a TF330r3 for a friend and I'm a bit confused by the r3 jeds in your zip file...

Your main_top matches the md5 of the 2019_02_28 firmware. The only other ones in the terriblefire-binaries github being 2019_03_16 and tf330_2019_03_18 (both alphas) are not the same as your Burst3 jed.

At this point in time, what is the recommended TF330 firmware? Latest alpha or your Burst3?

Thanks!

Use the Burst3 jed ( I rename the jeds for my personal use) this is from Steve(Terriblefire) through email to me and is what I have used since so don`t worry too much about it :)

Thanks - will flash - I'd flashed the latest from github (all seems fine) but will give Burst3 a go now and leave it on that.

The Burst3 firmware in supaduper's archive gives 9536 dhrystones in SysInfo but the latest on github (2019_03_19) only gives 7630.

Sticking with Burst3 :D

Is there a way to revert to the onboard 020 AND keep 8mb fast+ide ON?
The aca cards can do this via software so I was wondering if this could be done on the TF330 as well. Would that require some special firmware logic?
I know the whole thing can be turned off with a jumper, am using it.
