Project description

MultiTech Multitool Utility

Library and command line tool for working with Multitech products.


Command line tool multitool has functionality split into subcommands. To get a list of valid subcommands use --help or -h. Each subcommand can also be queried for details using --help.


Get help:

multitool --help
multitool device --help
multitool device patch --help

Device Subcommand

The device command has tools for packaging device firmware upgrades.

Create a patch for an MDot when the images contain bootloaders:

multitool device patch -m -V 4.0.2 -v 4.0.5 -i MTDOT -b mdot_image_4.0.2.bin mdot_image_4.0.5.bin

Compress an XDot image which does not contain a bootloader and append a CRC32:

multitool device compress -m -c -i XDOT xdot_image_4.0.5_application.bin

Upgrade an mDot over serial with an image that contains a bootloader:

multitool device upgrade -b COM3 MTDOT mdot_image_4.0.5.bin

Use PIP to install, the multitool executable will be added to the Python scripts directory.
