When i got my MD 380 I just plugged the cable in and windows 10 installed the driver, I didn't have to install anything myself.

The TYT files are the same.

What's generally regarded as the best alternative hacked firmware for these TYT md380 RT3 range off radios? Is there much off a difference in actual features? Looking for front panel Programming and promiscuous mode as well as user database. Anyone advise ?

Okay sorry for late reply. Thanks will check them out on Facebook. Think it's just 380tools that you use. Anyone else advise best FW to use,?

I use TyMD380tools. I don't think there has been a lot going on with the original MD380tools recently. I made a video about how to install it, so have a look at that if you're interested: https://youtu.be/cA1GkqgO_oQ

Yep thanks again its your videos that keep me from giving up at times !! got the latest KK4VCZ md380 tools 2.0 on both my MD380 and MD390 gps and must admitt seems loads off options within there, 1-7 menu options ( not sure if that the same as the Tymd380tools you are talking about ?

TyMD380tools is made by Ty Weaver, KG5RKI. It's not the same one. KK4VCZ is Travis Goodspeed, or the maker of the original version.

They are mostly the same anyway, so unless you want some specific features from one version it shouldn't matter too much which you use.

Okay thanks sorry my confusion.. to be honest personally find the whole dmr scene difficult enough itself to understand without introducing even further features / menus onto the radio, but boys will be boys when it comes to modding eh !

p.s had a look at the TyMD380tools by Ty Weaver but not sure the server is working, downloads via the all in one software but just comes up with done within seconds and never completes as per your video demp.. not sure if problem on the server side or what if you get a chance to check it out thanks.
