PokittoPOP Easy Guided Programmer release v0.1

What is it?

Pokitto POP programmer v .1 is a helper tool for people who have difficulties copying the binary (.bin) files from their PC (Windows and Machintosh, Linux coming soon) to Pokitto.

Pokitto POP programmer can:

  • guide you how to connect your Pokitto to the computer
  • shows you when Pokitto is connected
  • shows the file currently in Pokitto active memory (in the handbag!)
  • copies file you have selected correctly to the Pokitto, bypassing any problems
  • automatically unmounts Pokitto correctly on Mac

Installation

Download and unpack to any place you want. These programs are fully self-contained and do not put anything into Windows registry etc. On Mac, you may need to go to security settings to allow the installation of an uncertified program.

The program is really easy to use, just try it, you can’t break anything by using it.

Help wanted:

  • Your language version, please write what would be the button & messages in your own language so I can add them

  • General testing and feedback

#2

The windows version cannot be loaded, “Not found”.


#3

I second this, and I decided to check the Mac one while I was at it - as I suspected both are 404-ing.


#4

try again now


#5

Can be loaded now and works well.

I would like to have a more visible indication when it has flashed the device.


#6

Can you export the text list to simplify translation?


#7

Will do, thanks, good idea


#8

It boot up really fast!
Really like the graphics with the wizard, simple and clear.
Good job.

Suggestion: remove the maximize icon.

Normal people: open program, give it a try.

Pharap: break into XojoGUIFramework32.dll to see what makes it tick…


FileHelp.kBrowse = “Browse…”
FileHelp.kConnected = “2. Connect Pokitto … connected!”
FileHelp.kFile = “1. Choose a program file (.bin)”
FileHelp.kHelpText1 = Do Step 1: turn off Pokitto
FileHelp.kHelpText2 = Do Step 2: connect Pokitto with USB cable to PC
FileHelp.kHelpText3 = “Do step 3: Press and HOLD lower button at the back”
FileHelp.kHelpText4 = “Do Step 4: while STILL HOLDING back button, turn Pokitto back on”
FileHelp.kHelpText5 = “Ready! You can close this help. If you are still not connected, do this wizard again.”
FileHelp.kHelpTitle = “Connecting Pokitto for programming”
FileHelp.kProgram = “Program”
FileHelp.kWaiting = “2. Connect Pokitto … not connected”

(And Jonne just beat me too it my 1 minute, but oh well. At least I know what “…” is supposed to be now.)


Edit:
I exctracted all of those from en.mo in the Windows distro, but afterwards I decided to peek in the Mac version and found Localizable.strings:

“FileHelp.kBrowse” = “Browse…”;
“FileHelp.kWaiting” = “2. Connect Pokitto … not connected”;
“FileHelp.kConnected” = “2. Connect Pokitto … connected!”;
“FileHelp.kFile” = “1. Choose a program file (.bin)”;
“FileHelp.kProgram” = “Program”;
“FileHelp.kHelpText1” = “Do Step 1: turn off Pokitto”;
“FileHelp.kHelpText2” = “Do Step 2: connect Pokitto with USB cable to PC”;
“FileHelp.kHelpText3” = “Do step 3: Press and HOLD lower button at the back”;
“FileHelp.kHelpText4” = “Do Step 4: while STILL HOLDING back button, turn Pokitto back on”;
“FileHelp.kHelpTitle” = “Connecting Pokitto for programming”;
“FileHelp.kHelpText5” = “Ready! You can close this help. If you are still not connected, do this wizard again.”;

Finnish version

“FileHelp.kBrowse” = “Selaa…”;
“FileHelp.kWaiting” = “2. Yhdistä Pokitto … ei yhteyttä”;
“FileHelp.kConnected” = “2. Yhdistä Pokitto … yhteydessä!”;
“FileHelp.kFile” = “1. Valitse ohjelma (.bin)”;
“FileHelp.kProgram” = “Ohjelmoi”;
“FileHelp.kHelpText1” = “Tee vaihe 1: käännä Pokitto pois päältä”;
“FileHelp.kHelpText2” = “Tee vaihe 2: liitä Pokitto USB kaapelilla tietokoneeseen”;
“FileHelp.kHelpText3” = “Tee vaihe 3: paina ja PIDÄ takana alempi näppäin pohjassa”;
“FileHelp.kHelpText4” = “Tee vaihe 4: samalla kun pidät nappulaa edelleen pohjassa, käännä Pokitto päälle”;
“FileHelp.kHelpTitle” = “Pokitton laittaminen ohjelmointitilaan”;
“FileHelp.kHelpText5” = “Valmis! Voit sulkea apurin. Jos Pokitto ei ole yhteydessä, tee tämä apuri uudelleen.”;

Italian is such a wonderful language. Thanks!


#14

No more feedback? How come?


#15

My translation skills are very poor in the technical realm :frowning:


#16

But have you tried using it?


#17

Not yet, I was under the impression it wasn’t ready for linux yet?


#18

Ah.

Ok, you’re right.


#19

I don’t think I’m the target market for this sort of tool

I’m perfectly happy with using drag & drop on Windows.
It works perfectly 100% of the time.

As for translations, I could contribute something in cat or orangutan, but I don’t think my Japanese or French are good enough to make something a native wouldn’t laugh at.


#20

I have used it a lot. Works very well and is convenient to use (in Windows).
The end-of-flashing animation is a nice touch!
