I was given a PC that I was only going to use for reprogramming my controller but that PC laptop just quit working. I really dont want to buy a PC just for this purpose if I can somehow use my Mac for the job. Also, I am not interested in running the virtual PC options on my Mac.

Ive been finally playing with a switcheroonie, very cool, can upload, download and store several versions.
Thanks Justin_le we're here thanks to you. All the best to the mods for their tireless work keeping it on an even keel.

FWIW It looks like I can use the BaFang config tool in free Mint Linux (Cinnamon and KDE desktops) with the free Wine emulator.

Will check soon - am waiting on a replacement battery charger.

That allows me to run my old netbook that someone gave me without looking for a Windows machine to use to program my BBSHD.

You should be connecting to the green Higo. To controller.

Got the same interface like yours, but still to dumb to get a connection......3 wires to the Interface (gnd, rx, tx), switched rx and tx, shortened pl and p+ on the controllerplug to the motor/controller.
Connect battery and hit the connect button.....the same happens every time.

Always get an "error opening serial port" either the cables are connected or not.
The interface is showing a red light all the time and when i disconned the battery from the motor, a blue led light up for 2-3seconds(on the interface).

I ordered another interface, but now i see yours the same....
You dont get all the actions to work, but at least you got a connection
Maybe i should solder my wiring again.
Dont know where to start again.....

Do i need to setup the interface via windows?
Just installed the driver for the interface and opened the bafang software.
The interface is properly listed, without any warnings, in the device manager.
You will need to enter the COMM port ID in the software. Look for the Breakout Board hardware in the "Ports" Section of the Device Manager. Mine Was identified as "COM7"

Then, in the controllerst software, type in COM7 (or whatever port yours is) - The software should then be able to communicate with your PC.

Click "Connect" and you should be up and running.
My experience is that it won't connect to any port other than Com 1-4.
If it tries to designate the programming cable to any other port, you have to change the number to 1-4 whichever one is free.
