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
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.
Your language version, please write what would be the button & messages in your own language so I can add them
General testing and feedback
Coming soon, needs a bit of work on the USB drive detection side (to make it work the same way on different distros)
For your safety, these files have been thoroughly viruschecked:

The windows version cannot be loaded, “Not found”.
I second this, and I decided to check the Mac one while I was at it - as I suspected both are 404-ing.
Can be loaded now and works well.
I would like to have a more visible indication when it has flashed the device.
Can you export the text list to simplify translation?
Will do, thanks, good idea
It boot up really fast!
Really like the graphics with the wizard, simple and clear.
Suggestion: remove the maximize icon.
Text to translate (if you want me to add your language)
1. Choose a program file (.bin)
2. Connect Pokitto … not connected
2. Connect Pokitto … connected!
Connecting Pokitto for programming:
Do Step 1: turn off Pokitto
Do Step 2: connect Pokitto with USB cable to PC
Do step 3: Press and HOLD lower button at the back
Do Step 4: while STILL HOLDING back button, turn Pokitto back on
Ready! You can close this help. If you are still not connected, do this wizard again.
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 â€¦ 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.kHelpTitle = “Connecting Pokitto for programming”
FileHelp.kProgram = “Program”
FileHelp.kWaiting = “2. Connect Pokitto â€¦ not connected”
(And Jonne just beat me too it my 1 minute, but oh well. At least I know what “â€¦” is supposed to be now.)
I exctracted all of those from
en.mo in the Windows distro, but afterwards I decided to peek in the Mac version and found

@Hanski : I have improved the UI, see if it is better now
Italian is such a wonderful language. Thanks!
No more feedback? How come?
My translation skills are very poor in the technical realm
But have you tried using it?
Not yet, I was under the impression it wasn’t ready for linux yet?
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.
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!
