Yes, I no longer got errors during probing the device with that old version of LimeSuite. But maybe it is because these error messages simply weren’t displayed on stderr/stdout in this old version and the actual issue is still there? Hard to say from my point of view.
And it looks like it indeed works like that, I can see different FW and GW numbers being installed for these two versions of LimeSuite.
I believe so. But I probably should be more precise about “not being able to receive/transmit anything”: in GNURadio Companion I am able to run simple graph with UHD Source and FFT/Scope Sink, it’s just that the received spectrum or time course doesn’t show the signals which I know are there (e.g. I am transmitting them via other device such as USRP). So I am actually getting some samples, it’s more like setting the RX/TX frequency doesn’t work like it should in this old LimeSuite version. The same applies for custom SoapySDR-based application, which in normal conditions should transmit and receive some bursts via LimeSDR itself.
Anyway, @andrewback has contacted me in order to send back the faulty board, so I hope things will become clearer when you guys will have the possibility to actually see the problem ;). But for now, thank to all of you for your help!
