Love the XPD project, it is a shame I cannot find it at its usual spot anymore (http://xpd.berlios.de/
seems to be dead). Luckily the files did end up on Sourceforge somehow, at least that's where I was able to find them: http://sourceforge.net/projects/xpd.ber ... rce=navbar
I got v0.3.2 running on OS X 10.9.3 (Mavericks) with some help of the pointers here in this thread, especially on how to get the Prolific's USB serial controller installed. All is well: I can start xpd from a terminal and, although it gives some errors about fonts and icons, get a GUI with which I was able to at least flash an EB212 I got from Lyen a long way back.
My actual goal however is to get an EB312 (12 FET 3077 MOSFET Extreme Modder Controller LYEN Edition) reconfigured but I do not get further than "Waiting Acknowledgement" after pressing the button on my USB cable. Letting go of the button and pressing it again gives me an error ("Upload failed: Invalid reply byte '55'" or "Upload failed: Invalid reply byte 'd5'", depending on how long I hold the button).
I am wondering if (1) anybody knows why my EB312 board does not reply with an acknowledgement and (2) if, despite not acknowledging, the board isn't flashed anyway.
Although I can not find a change log I decided it would be worth a shot to try v0.3.1 as well but to no avail. Can anybody recommend any other versions maybe?
