    My MD380 is locked after doing a "upgrade" with a win application (MD380Tool (by KG5RKI))

    I did receive the tool and some files as a zip file from my friends.

    The instructions was to open a file named experiment.bin dated 11.09.2017
    (or 09112017.... maybe already my alarmbells should ring)

    I did run the "upgrade"..... and my MD380 now asking for password when startup
    I did try the 00000000 and 99999999 without any luck.
    Then I tried all the similar 1, 2, 3 etc.......

    Anyway; my TYT MD380 is now locked and for no other use than the trashcan.

    Any suggestions for the correct password would be appreciated.

    May be best to contact KG5RKI

    Good Luck.

    I dont believe KG5RKI got any part of this;
    The tool itself is working fine;
    Problem is the file named experiment.bin
    (Or me for my stupidity using the file)

    By e-mail I have asked TYT for a repair.

    Do you have a link to that bin file ?

    Good Luck.

    Sorry, no link... but got the file on my laptop.

    Might be info about a password inside the file, but dont know how to debug...

    With a filename like that, It is really hard to tell what version it is.

    Good Luck.

    Is it still under warranty ?

    It would be great if they would help you with firmware that they did not release.

    Normally it is a "Do at your own risk" type of thing when using hacked firmware.

    Good Luck. Please do post their answer.

    That should be a setting in the codeplug. Try opening the file in the MD-380 CPS software and see if you can fined it.

    The problem is that you cant program the radio from CPS without any password.
