This documentation makes assumptions about the user’s familiarity with Anduril.
Other Documentation and Resources¶
For those unfamiliar with the Anduril UI, there are numerous resources out there, such as:
The last link may be the easiest place to start for beginners.
Do not be intimidated by the complexity of the diagrams or length of the manual! Most day-to-day functions are very simple to pick up and use.
This documentation uses common formatting and shorthand to convey interaction with Anduril via the flashlight button, including:
Click and immediately release the button
3Cmeans click the button three times.
ntimes and hold the button down on the last click.
Stated another way, click and immediately release
n-1times then press and hold the button down.
3Hmeans click two times then press and hold the button down.
Interpret Output and Input Prompts¶
Some functions such as the version check, battery level check, and voltage check output numbers as a series of blinks and pauses.
In these cases the flashlight blinks once for each number, for example three blinks is a 3.
A special case is 0 which is a very rapid single blink. Not to be confused with a regular single blink.
Some configuration modes have the light blink very rapidly while the flashlight is waiting for an input, such as a configuration value. In most cases waiting for a few moments is equivalent to a zero and the flashlight will return to its previous state.
From off, do
15C or more to have the flashlight blink out the version. The
version number is in the following format:
YYYYMMDDxxxx where the fields have the following meaning:
The year the firmware was compiled.
The month the firmware was compiled.
The day the firmware was compiled.
The model number of the flashlight or firmware variant.
Consult the Anduril MODELS file to see which models correspond to which numbers. In some cases a model may be newer than the contents of that file, and its entry may not have been merged into the main Anduril repository yet.
There are two ways to perform a factory reset.
Loosen the tailcap or head a couple turns.
On models with aux lights, stop turning when the aux lights go off.
Hold the button down
Tighten the tailcap or head while holding the button down
Keep holding button for about four seconds
The light will briefly flicker and ramp up, then at the end it will make a bright flash. Keep holding the button until it reaches the end of that final flash. If the button is released too early, the light will not reset.
