Bricked refers to an incident occurring during the software update of an electronic device, rendering it unresponsive.

After updating the firmware in a LokSound decoder using the LokProgrammer, the decoder may be unresponsive. It is possible some Configuration Variables have been altered.

  • Before allowing a firmware update, read and save the decoder configuration to your computer.
  • Upon completion of the firmware update write the saved configuration back to the decoder.

There is a possibility when the firmware update was performed some CVs were changed and those have now become the defaults. A reset will not fix that.
