Flashing Xbees on Mac/Linux

X-CTU is the primary utility for flashing new images on XBee devices. Windows Emulation on Mac and Linux…


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

  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.
