mdloader not working for Alt?
I just got an Alt in yesterday and everything about it is great, but I can't flash. mdloader doesn't see it. This is on Linux Mint 20 and yes, I have put it into dfu mode with fn+B.
mdloader -l shows no devices found.
mdloader --first -D firmware_name.bin --restart shows "Could not find a valid device port"
I've also tried this in Windows with the same result.
I've tried the fix from here: https://drop.com/talk/51637/if-you-are-having-problem-flashing-new-batch-of-alt (change the chip ID to 60060305 and build from 1.0.3 source) with the same result.
Anyone know what's going on?
EDIT: OKAY THIS WORKED WHEN I RAN IT WITH SUDO
i don't recall that being mentioned anywhere but, verbose flag said it didn't have permission for the port. so i sudo'd it and it worked. with the latest version (1.0.4) and no modifications. wow :\
