Hi all, a firmware release previously disabled timer 4. It is now fixed for the next release. Until then, please find the required firmware fix here:

hi
I try to use the motor shield with my students but we have a problem with the examples because timer 4 is reserved.
It seems the firmware below can fix this problem.
but how install this firmware please.
regards

From the IDE you need to run the bootloader and upload firmware.bin.

We're doing a new release very soon that will fix this issue.

Hi, you have to unplug the camera when you run the bootloader dialog and then plug the camera back in. This needs to be done on the host machine also. Not from a VM.

I download firmware v.3.5.2, and Flash Bootloader, it works as before, without timer 4
I retry new firmware and it stop again at self test.

Which firmware image did you use ? You need the specific firmware for your camera. You didn't mention which camera you have, if it's OpenMV-4 upload OPENMV4/firmware.bin.

You can download the firmware from github, any older release should work:
