General installation instructions
Each release is provided as a zipped “.tup” file, to be loaded into the Tenori-On in the same way as you loaded v2.10.
That is :
- Unpack the .zip file and copy the
.tup to the TENORI-ON folder on your SD card.
- Insert the SD card into your TENORI-ON. Turn the TENORI-ON while pressing [OK] and [CANCEL] simultaneously.
- After a short time, the firmware data list is displayed.
- Use the jog dial to select the firmware data to install, and then push the OK button.
- Press the OK button again when the “Start Update ?” query appears.
- The update will start after about 20 seconds. The update process takes about 90 seconds in total.
- Depending on SD card type, more time may be required.
When installation is complete, switch the TENORI-ON off, then on again.
The following then differs from the standard approach, because expected locations for things have moved around a bit.
If the system hangs on startup (i.e. never moves on from the title screen), then you will need to do a TEST MODE Factory reset. This will remove any loaded samples and reset back to “normal” rather than “advanced” mode, but it is easy to put these back.
- Turn off, then turn on while holding [L1] and [CLEAR]. The text “Test Mode” and “TEST” will appear
- Use the rotary dial to change “TEST” to “047 Factory Set”. Press OK
- Wait until the “–” has changed to “End”. Then turn off and turn on.
If the system didn’t hang on startup, it is recommended to perform the “normal” factory reset, which is the same, but retains the user loaded samples. Use the System Menu to perform a Factory Reset. After this you will need to restore the normal Tenori-on advance mode ([L1] + [L5] on startup).
Note that, while I try to retain as much backward compatibility as possible, some releases will not play songs/layers/blocks from earlier releases (or the 2.10 release) correctly, since certain settings have changed.
Liability Waiver !
Please note that while these images work on my Tenori-on, I hold no liability for any damage they may cause to yours!
Several people have contributed ideas for new features; ideas are always welcome. The queue for implementation is quite long, so please be patient!
The barrier to contributing code is quite high - you need a good working knowledge of assembly language - nevertheless, some users are managing to contibute code! Many thanks!
