PiStorms fwupgrader fails due to "no Device Found"

  1. I installed from /largefiles/pistorms.zip a few weeks ago, it says I am running firmware v2.06 but the highest version available at /largefiles/updater/ is v2.05.  I've been having some issues (will start a different topic for those) so I tried to downgrade to 2.05 but it fails.  So two questions:

    • is v2.06 legit?
    • why can't fwupgrader find the board?

    v2.06 is legit, and the latest firmware.
    The file on website is for old models who wish to upgrade.
    Yours already is with latest version, Do not downgrade.
