[RESOLVED] XIM4 manager problems.
« on: 08:52 AM - 01/13/16 »
Goodday to all who find himselve called to help me.

Im posting about a problem i am currently running into, im quite the "nerdy" problem solver when it comes to hard or software, bur now im just at the end of my latin, im out of any possible tries u name it....

Seeing as english isnt my native tongue i will try to provide as much info i can give in a understandable way.

Now the problem is, is that the xim4 is persistently refusing to pair with my manager.

I have tryd:

- seeing is at first it refused to pair with my bluetooth on my iphone, ipads, ipod, huawei and one plus one i bought a bluetoothdongle (bluesoleil) for pc and it paired.
- i can get it to pair on a 3mb and a 5mb bluetooth dongle.
- it wont connect to my manager
- it wont connect to my manager wired directly to pc
- i flashed the xim to factory setting and used the second newest manager.
- ditto and the new manager
- i ran it all in safemode and cop. mode windows xp
- i tried installing the newest firmware but i was promped it was already installed with a newer one ???
- i formated my pc (needed anyway) i tried all of the above again.
- i tried on my wifes laptop all of the above.
- i tried it like it says on the sheet u get with it.
- i tried youtubeing it but get stuck on pairing with the manager again.

At this point in all out of ideas, im just al about to destroy my screen, but lets not.

Hopefully someone can help me out.

If anyone is in need of a dxdiag or anything els just shout.

Regards, lieven

Welcome to the community. In order to use Manager on your compatible iOS devices you will need to update your XIM4 firmware to the latest beta, 20160104. This might be why you were also unable to connect on your PC when using the latest Manager, you might not have been using the latest firmware. Let's get you up to date before going forward. You will need to restore to factory defaults using the firmware flash tool, un pair any pairings you currently have, uninstall Manager, install the Manager linked below. Each thread has detailed instructions.

Please read the installation and pairing instructions in each thread below.

20160104 Firmware: http://xim4.com/community/index.php?topic=44409.0

edit: not fast enough :(

You restored to factory defaults using the link above? This and the iOS  pairing instructions are all that is necessary to use iOS. http://xim4.com/ios

Which apple models are you using and what version of iOS are they running?

On Android and PC you will need to update Manager to the beta version linked above as well and do the re pairing steps listed in the Manager thread.

Hi,

i got it to work, eventually, ive followed the tips with the firmware and the manager, but it had no effect.
so i tried reinstalling a different usb driver, other than the one from m provided MB disk, and it works.

thx for the help and on a sidenote, xim4 is A MAZING :D love it !
