Diatium3 Saber Core BETA

PLEASE FOLLOW EACH STEP

*All Orders Shipped on July 27, 2021 or later will have this update installed.

READ BEFORE YOU START THE UPDATE PROCESS

Please make sure your Smart Saber® is fully charged. Ensure that the saber is in deep sleep mode by toggling the sleep switch (toward the emitter) inside the pommel of your Smart Saber. Make sure you select the proper version for your saber: Pixel or in-hilt LED. 

The new Electrum Smart Saber Firmware is designed to be used with high quality, 44.1kHz Smooth Swing fonts. As such, you will want to update your fonts by downloading updated copies from your original order. Some of your fonts may not be updating 44.1khz. They will be updated in the next couple weeks.

The good news is we have provided 2 fonts below that you can use on this new update right away, at no charge. So you can begin to enjoy the beta right away. We recommend having only 1 sound font on the SD card during the update, for the sake of speed. You can add the rest of your fonts after the saber has been properly updated.

Additionally, please read the Release Notes below on this page before proceeding. You need to have a compatible mobile device and OS.

Step 3: Unzip the firmware

Step 4: Remove the SD card. Insert it into your computer’s micro-SD port. Remove all contents on the SD card.

Use a Windows PC, Linux PC or MacOS computer to do this. Mobile devices or chromebooks are not recommended as they will add formatting files to your card. Do not use a mobile device, chrome book or tablet for this process

Step 5: Place the dBoot.cry & Loader.cfg on to the SD card

Step 6: Unzip a single 44.1khz sound font

Step 7: Drag & Drop the unzipped sound font folder onto the SD card

Step 8: Eject the SD card from your computer

Step 9: Place your SD card back into your Electrum Smart Saber®

Step 10: Toggle deep sleep (toward the speaker)

The middle switch buttons will indicate that the saber is updating. Do not touch any buttons. Do not toggle the deep sleep switch during this process. Wait for the boot sound. When you here sound, proceed to the next step. Do not turn the saber on.

Step 11: Toggle the deep sleep switch once and perform a hard reset.

Please toggle the back to deep sleep then back to the awaken position. The saber lights will flick rapidly, immediately press and hold the bottom switch button until the middle lights blink 6 times. If they do not blink 6 times, please toggle the deep sleep switch again and try the process again.

Step 12: Listen for the boot sound

When you hear the boot sound your saber has now been hard-reset and is ready for use with the Electrum Unity II App. You can confirm the version of your software using the Electrum Unity App in the top right corner of the screen. If the loading process does not start when you toggle the sleep switch, confirm that both the Loader.cfg and dBoot.cry files are in the root of your SD card, and try again.

Please watch the video below to see the Firmware Update process in action.

  • Firmware can only be installed using a PC, Mac or Linux

    • Smart Phone or Chromebooks cannot be used to install new firmware

    • These updates do not work with the Diatium2 Saber Core. Please feel free to use the current Electrum Unity App.

  • Compatible with iPhone 6S or later Apple iPhones using ver 14.7

  • Compatible Android Devices using Android 8 or new versions.

    • Please note: due to multiple types of Android devices across the world, we were only able to test a fraction of available devices. We tested the most popular devices.

  • The new firmware is only compatible with 16 bit 44.1khz sound fonts.

    • Mixed bit rate and lower quality fonts are not officially supported

    • Moving forward, we have made the decision to only support fonts that optimize the sound performance on our Smart Sabers®

  • If you would like roll back your firmware there are links to the old firmware and App below.

  • When updating the saber needs to be full charged

Troubleshooting

  • Before performing any advanced troubleshooting, please make sure your Smart Saber® is fully charged using a 5 volt 2 amp wall charger. Do not use computer USB ports, or low-power chargers (Apple iPhone cubes) or multi-port chargers. LOW BATTERY CAUSES MOST ISSUES that a user may experience.

  • When saving blade presets configuration, when you go back to main Blade Setting page in the app, the blade color will change to whatever was saved in the profile. However, if you hit UPLOAD PRESET, the blade option you just configured will upload to the USER PROFILE and the blade will change to the custom preset you just made.

  • Make sure that all sound font folders you add contain NO special character, including spaces, in the file or folder names. Ensure the font folders contain no sub folders. Ensure all sound files are uniform 44.1kHz 16bit files, no mixed bitrates or low quality audio formats (22.05kHz) are supported.

  • If you are experience stuttering with your sound font, please power down the saber, put it into deep sleep mode. Remove SD card and re-insert, then take back out of deep sleep and power on. If the audio issues persist, please re-format the card (FAT 32) and put the sound fonts back on it. If this doesn’t work, the card is most like damaged and needs to be replaced. The saber can support any SD card formatted to FAT32, to a max of 32GB.

  • DO NOT TRY TO CONNECT TO YOUR SMART SABER USING THE BLUETOOTH DEVICE SETTINGS ON YOUR MOBILE DEVICE. You just need to accept the Bluetooth permissions when opening the app for the first time. If you missed this step, re-install the Electrum Unity II App.

  • MAC USERS: If you are using a Mac to update your Firmware, and you experience issues with either updating, or Smart Saber performance challenges after updating, please note the following: Mac OS is adding hidden files to your SD card. This is just an OS thing, but it can cause an issue when updating or using the saber. SOLUTION: after installing your unzipped firmware files and font files on the SD card, press COMMAND - SHIFT - . (period) This will reveal any hidden files on the card. Delete only the hidden files that appear. Then eject the SD card, place back in the saber and the firmware will install normally.

  • If your Smart Saber will not boot up, and any of the switch lights are dimly flashing, attempt to download an older Firmware file, perform the update procedure, and then re-update to the latest available firmware version.

  • For additional and timely support you can join the Electrum Owner's Group on Facebook. Community members there are incredibly helpful. If you still have an issue, please reach out to our support team. Send us message through our chat system (yellow icon lower right) on our website. Our support team responds Monday to Friday between the hours of 9 am - 5 pm MST.
