bootloader and software

Equipment, circuits, projects, procedures

There might be an inconsistency between bootloader and firmware. I bought both boards from eurocircuits and initially everything worked (with a bug during calibration).
When I tried to download the latest firmware version (2.30) from elektor site I got a dead lcr meter. (just blinking green leds on the boards, empty display, no connection with PC)
The problem seems to be that firmware checks the bootloader version and it stops doing anything if it is not version >=2.0.
Now bootloader is version 2.1 (it's diplayed on screen for a second) so in principle no problem should come up.
So I had to modify the program and drop this check; now it works again.
Any comment from authors ?
