I only started using Chirp with the 3/1 build.  I have a Prolific cable and
a UV-5R (with the carrier squelch issue) on my OSX 10.10 box. I'm using the
recommended KK7DS runtime. I installed the 1.6 kext from Prolific, then
after discussion with Jim Unroe I grabbed the 2.0 driver from

When I upload the image that came off my radio, it works fine. When I try
to use a "factory reset" image from Jim Unroe (that he personally supplied
to me), I get a nasty crash. This is NOT the famous "error" reported by
others on a factory reset.

Here's the stacktrace from the crash- there's also a snippet of console log
in there, which doesn't give anything as an ERROR. I can reproduce this
with both the 1.6 and 2.0 drivers (thankfully, they bind to a different
/dev location).


What should I do next? The only reference to something similar that I've
found was this, which went off on a different tangent:

Note I'm still working with Jim to try some images. That doesn't explain
why Chirp is crashing on these.
