[ACTIVE] Failure connecting to xim apex
« on: 03:12 AM - 03/26/20 »
When I try to download the firmware to my xim apex, I press the button until its light is blue then I insert it into the port and then I try to download it and it tells me to be sure if my xim apex is connected to my pc without any device connected when the only connected device is the xim apex

Each of these steps is known to solve issues related to using the flash tool with XIM, be sure to try them all.

1) Unplug all peripherals from XIM, the ports should be empty
2) Attach XIM to USB 2.0 ports on the PC, you may have issues with XIM attached to USB 3.0 ports.
3) XIM4 users should test another cable between XIM4 and PC. APEX users should use direct connection.
4) Disable antivirus on the PC
5) Boot the PC in safe mode
6) Use another PC if available
