Older OS X

I just got my FlipperZero today and went to update the device to latest.

I’m running: OS Version: Mac OS X 10.13.6 (17G14042)
Which turns out to be a little bit of a problem, as once it finishes writing the co-processor blocks, qFlipper crashes:
Termination Reason: DYLD, [0x4] Symbol missing

Dyld Error Message:
Symbol not found: ____chkstk_darwin
Referenced from: /Applications/qFlipper.app/Contents/MacOS/…/Frameworks/libusb-1.0.0.dylib (which was built for Mac OS X 11.0)
Expected in: /usr/lib/libSystem.B.dylib

This left a somewhat bricked FlipperZero, I could restart qFlipper, but it failed again at the same location.

I built a new libusb (from NetBSD pkgsrc) and had qFlipper use that instead:
$ cd /Applications/qFlipper.app/Contents/Frameworks/
$ mv libusb-1.0.0.dylib libusb-1.0.0.dylib-
$ ln -s /usr/pkg/lib/libusb-1.0.0.dylib libusb-1.0.0.dylib

This executed the update, but left me with the following:

  • the display on the FlipperZero was complaining about a missing database.
  • qFlipper complained about an interrupted operation with the connection to the device lost.

    [RPC] Failed to start RPC session: Failed to begin CLI session: Device is not responding

At this point the FlipperZero is unbricked. But was complaining about “No SD card or database found. Some app function may be reduced.” when pressing Left. (It’s there, and I was able to reformat it.)

Did qFlipper finish “enough”, or am I going to have to keep poking at things to get this fully working?

(The other systems of mine are only a Windows 7 box, running Steam mostly, and a bunch of NetBSD 9.x systems.)

I also had a problem with the desktop software crashing during a firmware update.

Flipper’s Full log & Apple’s Crash Log attached.

I hope these help diagnose the issue at all.

Hi @graeioume,
If you look through that crash dump, it’s the issue I first tackled with the bad compilation of libusb. Hopefully we’ll hear some response about how an OS X 11 version of a library got bundled in with a OS X 10 distribution.
There does seem to be additional issues past that, causing issues.

qFlipper is based on Qt5 which does not support old macOS. We have no plans to add support for old versions of macOS and Windows, because this will require to complete rework of qFlipper.

Maybe it could be documented what versions of things are actually supported?
“OS X 11 on Intel only”?

It seems like a bunch of people are burning time trying to get things working that have no hope, when that time could have been better spent improving things. (ie on the /update page and the Readme.md )

That said, I did get qFlipper to function on OS X 10.13, with the libusb replacement. It did update the firmware. There still continues to be some errors that I was hoping for some clarification on.

I think you have lots of pain using 20 years old macOS. What browser do you use for example?
The only thing I can recommend you is to fork qFlipper and build it for old macOS. We can not help you here.

In feature version we will add a error banner to prevent running qFlipper on old macOS.

The hardware is 11 years old. OS X 10.13 first released in 2017. 10.13.6 in 2018, with the last major build in November of 2020.

Browsers:
Brave 1.37.116
Firefox 100.0
Chrome 101.0.4951.64
Though the first two want me to restart for the update. :wink:

I was able to get my Flipper flashed after the first failure, fortunately. It may have been a USB contact issue?

Either way, I also have the same comment: the hardware on my computer may be 11 years old, but it still runs OS X 10.13.6 just fine with no flagrant errors or slow-downs.

And Qt5 absolutely supports OS X 10.13 .

I think there is some confusion about how old our computers are.
