Some people experiencing the same problem with their foxflash tool. It worked fine but suddenly wouldn’t start. Open FoxFlash Manager and then click Activate, nothing happens. Change another PC still no luck.
If your Foxflash only shows USB serial to converter, ftdi is probably deleted. If usb device doesn’t show as “Dfox” but USB Serial Converter instead, the device is not recognized.
We have discussed this in the previous post. That’s because the “version.dll” file in dfb folder has been eaten by the anti-virus program. Downloading this file will solve the problem.
An expert from DK found another solution.
Just sharing for purpose. Credit to SonyPS3 from DK forum. You are at your risk because this solution uses kt200 program. We don’t hold the responsibility for the damage.
He writes with Mprog ftdi from old FGtechGalleto V54 and then repair it with FoxFlash activation program.
It is solved in several steps.
For starters, we’re using FGtech’s .ept file
After the last step, launch FoxFlash.
Disable anti-virus before downloading programs.
2.Only shows USB serial converter in Computer device manager
3. Upload V54.ept file in V54 folder
4. Press this icon
5. Write EEPROM and reboot the device
6. Install KT200, turn off the anti-virus program.
7. Update the driver from the program directory
8.Plug foxflash and start the kt200 service
9. Reset Device
10. Device is detected.
11. Launch foxflash.
