Default Funcard Tutorial

The Infinity USB Programmer software:

I assume that you have already connected the programmer and installed the software on your PC.
If it's the first time you use this software, then first check if your software is configured properly.

All preparations done?
Then let's start programming!


Unless you have configured the software to start in Phoenix mode, this is the default screen you will see after starting the Infinity software.



Insert the card you want to program and wait until the software has detected what kind of card it is.
The detection should be almost instant. Detection is done on the processor type of your card.
If the card type you inserted is available in different versions (different Eeprom configurations) then the software will warn you about that. If you know what type of Eeprom you have, you can set the card type manually. If not, let the software do the detection.




As soon as the card is recognized, the buttons Write, Read and Erase at the bottom will become active, and so will the chip symbol next to the Phoenix button.



If they don't become active, or if the card type is not displayed correctly, check if your card is inserted properly.
I have noticed that PCB type cards will require some force to insert them completely.

I have used a Funcard for purpose of this tutorial.
Now press the Open File icon to open the Flash file.
From the selection screen, select the correct Flash file.



Do the same for the internal Eeprom file.



And for the external Eeprom file.



Now you should see all files loaded on the appropriate lines.
But there is more to see in this window.
The Infinity software also shows the amount of file space occupied by the selected files.
I have colored the volume bars red in this sample.
As you can see, this file set that I used, occupies the complete internal Eeprom, but only a part of the available Flash space. The external Eeprom is only filled about 50%.



Normally the volume bars are dark gray, as you can see in the screenshot below.

As said on several occasions before:
It is advisable to always erase your card before programming it.
Now click the Erase button to erase the card before programming.



When the card is erased, click the Done button.



Now press the Writebutton.



When the card is written, press the Done button.



That's it.
Very easy and very fast.


Configuring the software to your liking:

Start the software.
From the Menu bar select Options.
Now select the option Generalfrom the menu.
If you want, you can change the language to your preference.



Just tick or blank the options you want.
I suggest that you start with the settings like the ones below for now.



Now click on the tab Advanced.
Set the selections identical to the ones below.



Now click on the tab Phoenix.
If you like your Infinity in Phoenix or Smartmouse mode, you can set that preference here. Just tich the box and select your additional preferences.
I like my Infinity to start in USB mode, so I leave the box un-ticked.








The Infinity USB Phoenix Programmer Software:

If you want to use your Infinity in Phoenix or Smartmouse mode, you simply press the Phoenix button.
The popup window lets you choose your preferred frequency and reset mode.
I am going to work with MKFind for this sample, so I leave the settings default (as shown below).

When you have made your selection, click Enable.



You will notice that the main program window disappears and that a system tray icon has appeared.
Below I have marked the icon with a red square.



This icon is your new entry to the Phoenix/Smartmouse section of the software.
By clicking it, it will open a menu which allows you to alter your settings, or return to the USB programming interface.
We will leave it on the settings shown for now.



Just for the sake of this instruction, I will use MKFind.
You may ofcourse use any software requiring a Phoenic mode interface.
For now, start MKFind.



Insert your card and click the connect button.
And voila... there are your card details.
It just shows that the Phoenix mode works great.



To return to the USB mode, or exit the program entirely, you can click the system tray icon and select the option you want.



If you select to exit the Phoenix mode, the system tray icon is removed and the USB programming interface will re-appear.



OK, that's it.
As easy as they can get

Default Re: Funcard Tutorial

this is a great tutorial but will this be the same with programming a titanium card too. Sorry am just learning how to program cards. I will be getting my card programmer soon, although am confused about few things. Say my card is working fine today and goes off tom. Obviously i need to re-programe it but what new things do i need, i keep hearing hex files, flash files and also the area codes... if my card was gone, what new files do i need.

mate you need to read the old threads which clearly tels for each model how to get the ird and bk. these threads are started when this forum started there is no point of going back again you need to look around for this information it takes too much time from moderators to explain it back from begining.
