T7 colour Astrocamera firmware update problem #45737
Hi!
I've bought a T7 astrocamera on aliexpress and wanted to use it with StellarMate. It's ASI120MC clone (colour version) and StellarMate recognise it as it, after installing ZWO drivers Sharp Cap see it as ASI120MC as well and everything works fine. To use it on StellarMate (as a guiding camera) I need to update the firmware of it (now, the image in the preview is black, and taking picture takes forever, it just never takes it). I know that many people have succesfully updated T7 camera firmware by using ZWO Firmware updater, but I have problem... The software simply don't see my camera, there is no option to choose it and flash. Maybe there were older versions of the updater and it won't work with new version? Or it's the difference in the camera version? Maybe mono version will work but colour wont (but really?).

Do you have any ideas? Or maybe someone have older version of ZWO firmware updater by any chace?

for example if you run on armv7:
cd armv7
$ ./zwo_FWTool_USB2 -i ../firmware/ASI120MC-compatible.iic -t li2c
and reconnect your camera and the new firmware will work, you can comfirm that by lsusb command.
