the bootloader and then executes dfu-programmer (it must of course be installed) with the
correct arguments.
Note that the tool must be compiled first and your permissions must also be set so that your
user may access the device. See 'Using the tools' below for more information.
## Compiling the tools
In the tool/ directory, just type make.
There are a few dependencies:
- libhidapi-dev
- libhidapi-hidraw0
- pkg-config
- gtk3 (for the gui only)
Provided you have all the dependencies installed, under Linux at least, it should
compile without errors. For other environments such has MinGW, there are provisions
in the makefile to auto-detect and tweak the build accordingly, but it if fails, be
prepared to hack the makefile.
## Using the tools
Under Linux, you should configure udev to give the proper permissions to your user,
otherwise communicating with the device won't be possible. The same requirement
also applies to dfu-programmer.
An easy way to do this is to copy the two files below to /etc/udev/rules.d, restart
udev and reconnect the devices.
