    Arrow Midifighter Update for Mac OS X

    We now have a version of Midifighter Update for Mac OS X, version 10.4 and up, downloadable from here:


    Open the DMG file as usual and drag the app onto the Desktop or into your Applications folder before executing it (super important to run it outside of the DMG, it downloads a temporary file).

    Try it out and report any successes or issues to this thread.

    You're welcome.

    I previously flashed my MF using DeveloperTools - I'll have a go with this installer to test it out for you guys!

    My Midi Fighter was shipped on Tuesday so this is pretty timely. Unless new Midi Fighters come with the latest firmware? Hadn't really thought about that.

    Hmmm - have you tried entering boot loader mode by shorting the terminals on the circuit board

    Jergo, did you get any error messages during the flash? What did the text say? Did you get a large graphic saying "Success!" or was there an error reported in the readout? What version of OSX are you running? What did you see on screen while you run the MFUpdate app?

    Like the guy said try the "piece of wire" technique to get into bootloader mode and reflash again.

    Getting an error that says "Unable to open temporary file: Read-only file system Flashing the Midifighter... Midifighter erased. Failed send HEX file to the Midifighter" what do I do? Now I've got all of the lights on except the shift light and it is not recognizing. Please help!

    Nevermind, after messing around with it for the past 2 hours I realized that I didn't have the program saved in the right spot. I forgot to copy the Midifighter app to my app folder to get it to work. Everything's working now.
