Don't see ODROID in Arduino on MacOS High Sierra

Unread postby z80assembler » Fri Jul 13, 2018 3:32 am

Hi there,

I am trying to get the Arduino IDE on my iMac talk to the ODROID GO. I did install the ESP32 and ODROID GO SDK packages from github. They show up nicely in my IDE. I did also install the CP120x driver, but I don't see the serial port or the device itself. I think I may actually have the problem described here (driver not working properly under High Sierra):

But I am not completely sure. One thing I don't understand is: Should I always see the port in the Arduino IDE or would it only appear once the device is connected and in flashing mode? If the latter, how do I put the ODROID GO into flashing mode (pardon me if it's described elsewhere, I searched the specs/docs pages and the forum already)?

Cheers!

Hi,

it's what I did first, although I did not use the exact commands, but cloned things from Github instead, as mandated by ODROID. The problem is the USB driver. It would not install or load on High Sierra. Apparently I am not the only one with this problem and I read about similar problems with ESP8266 devices a while ago. According to most reports is's caused by a mix of new restrictions in High Sierra and an incorrectly signed driver. The totally obscure UI for approving drivers does not make things better.

The instructions on the page I linked did help in the end. I had to boot into the recovery system, explicitly approve the driver on the command line, then boot the normal system and try another re-install of the driver (which I had not done at first). After that I could see the device and was able to flash the ODROID. Yay! :)

Thanks!
