Help: Keyboard and trackpad SPI update utility broke trackpad
#1
Question 
Hi,

I ran ayufan's keyboard and trackpad SPI update utility (found here: https://github.com/ayufan-rock64/pineboo...rd-updater) I got the following error message:

Code:
update pass
QObject: Cannot create children for a parent that is in a different thread.
(Parent is QApplication(0xfffbe9dc), parent's thread is QThread(0xab2ca308), current thread is QThread(0xec1201a8)

I'm still able to use the keyboard on the PBP, but the trackpad behaves as through one of the mouse buttons is being held down. Then after a couple of uses the cursor seizes in place. I've tried running it again but I get more or less the same error. I can work around it for now by plugging in a USB mouse.

Does anyone have any guidance on how to re-flash the SPI, or know when the keyboard/trackpad update utility will be fixed?

Ben

I heard they were working on a firmware update for the keyboard, but I was not aware they had one available yet.
I think the SPI is un-used at this time on the PBP, but it is meant for booting purposes ?
I DO want to keep up on all the available updates....

There is no new firmware update for the trackpad/keyboard yet. @Feakster, where did you read it was to be flashed?
I'll see if I can get you the factory firmware again.
Come have a chat in the Pine A64 IRC channel >>

To all those reading this thread - DO NOT run the update utility. I'll let you know when we've got the firmware.
You can find me on IRC, Discord and Twitter

Thank you.

Sorry. Must have misread something.

I have done the wrong thing, too.
I'll follow this thread in the hope someone finds a solution for the trackpad.
