BladeRF Yate BTS issue
« on: December 25, 2016, 10:09:55 AM »
I know there have been other posts about this, but they are all seemingly old and none seem to openly fix this issue i am having..

I recently got a bladeRF and was trying to set up yatebts with it on a raspberry pi.  i have followed the instructions at https://evilsocket.net/2016/03/31/how-to-build-your-own-rogue-gsm-bts-for-fun-and-profit/ to a T but when i run yate bts i get a transceiver failed to reset error.. i have since tried playing around with the firmware version and rbf file but to no avail.. can anyone please help me understand what is wrong and how i can fix it..
