This is a short HOWTO on upgrading the Toppy firmware from Ubuntu 7.10
1 - Download firmware upgrade and unzip.
You will find that you have a .tfd file in the directory where you unzipped the file.
2 - Plug a USB cable into laptop and the Topfield
3 - Run the topfield ftp daemon:
ftpd-topfield -D -P 2021
4 - Now in another terminal connect to the daemon using lftp
5 - cd to the /firmware directory on the toppy:
lftp localhost:/> cd firmware
6 - Using filename completion, put the file onto the Toppy:
lftp localhost:/firmware> put /home/pete/HOME/Topfield/Firmware/TEST
23-07-2007\ 5.13.65\ beta.tfd
1591778 bytes transferred in 10 seconds (152.6K/s)
7 - Once complete, the Toppy starts the countdown, and then flashed End.
8 - press the standby button, and restart.

Could you update this how-to to state whether the Toppy should be in standby mode before ftping the tfd file or whether the Toppy should be running first ?. Thanks

Hi Sandy. The Toppy needs to be running to upload the tfd file. Pete
