I am unable to enter DFU mode on my 8kx, the best I could manage is to get it to trigger it for a few seconds (when pressing all three buttons on the hmd and releasing when led goes white, it flashes red green blue afterwards) the device “STM device in DFU mode” shows up in device manager for a few seconds then it immediately disconnects and LED goes solid red.
Any firmware I attempt to flash with the DFU tool hangs at 98% when I do not manually engage DFU mode. If I force manual DFU with pitool exited and only the pimax service running DFU tool does not respond (no warning messages either)
I tried a fresh install of pitool 260 after removing the ST Microelectronics DFU driver, uninstalling my Thrustmaster pedal drivers and associated software.
The HMD works but I want to install the 298 beta firmware which enables 90hz refresh rate.
I couldn’t figure out the root cause, DFU mode is recognised but for some reason it ends abruptly a second or two after it is engaged.
Has anyone encountered this issue on an 8kx. I have seen workarounds on the threads for the 5k+ for a similar issue none worked unfortunately.
