E2 Updates, and questions

So this is kind of a shot in the dark but i was hoping someone on here would know the answers. To start out with let me start out with what my goal is.
So i love auto cockers to me they are the best gun. I have multiple guns with E2 and E1 boards. I would like to update the programing on both styles of handles, but not to the last firmware that was released i would like to actually write an updated version of the programming i have a BS in computer engineering and i am going back for my master

I would like to know if anyone knows if there was ever a usb adapter for the boards or if there is one out there Like the ones used to do xmods ?

I would also like to know if anyone knows what complier the programming was written in?

Lastly specs any and all specs on the board?

If i can find out all this stuff i will write new sw for the boards ?

If there is a version of the code used to create the firmware out there.

Hopefully an old Planet eclipse guy that will know all this stuff

I would try MCB.

I don't think the average user would know any of those questions.

i can tell you that the usb adapter that was in the works never made it to production, so that makes the whole process a lot more complicated, since you not only have to make your own physical interface, but figure out how to interface the board to USB on a software level as well.

well I know this isn't exactly what you want to hear but we are doing this over at custom cockers with a race frame. We are designing our own board and it is actually usable currently. I know its not the frame you want but as hard as it was to get race firmware.....you can bet eclipse has it under lock and key

I know it i doubt ill ever get it from them but i have made some progress from the micro controler i was able to trace back to the manufacture the defualt compiler so if i can pull the hex code off the board i should be able to reverse engineer the coding on the microcontroler, so now it a matter of finding a adaptor which i may have to make or finding one thats out there They did make a usb adaptor but there is only one out there that i have found out about but using the same type of board used in the Xmods i should be able to hook into the programing port and pull the hex code off

Just an update so eclipse has stated that they cannot provide me with any of this type of info due to its propietary, but in good news i have pulled the hex code off one of my E2 boards so i should be able to run that back into C and then create an updated software for the e handles and it shouldnt take me too long

also if anyone wants to wire it just look at page 2 it has the pin out,
http://ww1.microchip.com/downloads/e...Doc/30292c.pdf
Also the pic kit 3 is just 59 bucks on ebay and you can work with any pic.
Do not get a off brand one its more of a pain then its worth
but pin going from left to right on the back of the board pin 1 is vss ground pin 2 is mclr Vpp
3 is pgc 4 is pgd last is vdd target so if anyone wants to get the hardware and wire it they can.
To make mplab see the board and pull the asm or hex code you will have to hold the power button and then in debug mode read the memory on the device
