  1. So can you now actually get x-ctu to flash xbees under Linux when using Wine? I tried earlier this year at great length and while the software runs, the problem appears to be the X-Ctu software is badly written and sometimes refers to uppercase or lowercase filenames in the firmware, and so fails to find it’s own firmware, or connect to the website. On Windows, case is ignored, so the software works.

    I believe this is reflected in the codeweaver project being a bronze state. If someone knows how to make it work fully…

  2. Do you know if I can “change” a series 2 into a series 1 by flashing the series 1 firmware?

  3. @Ben – I don’t think so. I believe that they’re based on different (even vendors’, perhaps) chipsets.
