tl866ii

Last update: Tue Jun 2 00:17:45 2020
Bought me a nice programmer TL866II on eBay, and thtat was 50 USD well invested. It flashes the EEPROM in a snap of fingers, and works fine on Linux... though there's a thing to remember.

Get it to work on Linux (Mint 19.x)

(basically a copy of this article, kudos to the writer).
  • Install Wine
  • Install the udev rules with the appropriate vendor/device id, put your user in plugdev group
  • Install the Xgecu binary app on Wine
  • Download https://github.com/radiomanV/TL866 : you don't need the firmware, but the Wine driver
  • You don't need to build it, the .dll file you need is built already
  • Copy the setupapi.dll from the above git and put the file in the same folder as the Xgecu main .exe
  • Done! Enjoy!
