-T tty-device | --tty tty-device

This selects which tty device ao-dumpflash uses to communicate with the target device.

-D AltOS-device | --device AltOS-device

Search for a connected device. This requires an argument of one of the following forms:

  • TeleMetrum:2



  • Leaving out the product name will cause the tool to select a suitable product, leaving out the serial number will cause the tool to match one of the available devices.

-o output-file | --output output-file

Write flash contents to the specified file rather than stdout.

-R | --remote

This uses the command radio link to download the flash from TeleMetrum through a TeleDongle.

-F frequency | --frequency frequency

Specifies the radio frequency to use for remote communications in kHz. Default is 434550.

-C callsign | --call callsign

Specifies the callsign to use for remote communications. Default is N0CALL.


ao-dumpflash downloads the entire flash memory contents from a connected AltOS device and writes it to either stdout or the specified output file.


ao-dumpflash connects to the specified target device and dumps the flash.
