TH-9800 Won't communicate with most recent build

Build I downloaded - chirp-daily-20160604-installer - works perfectly with my TH-9800
Build chirp-daily-20160611-installer will not communicate with TH-9800.
I'm guessing the model detection code isn't working right in the TH-7800 and TH-9800 drivers. I will see if I can fix that.
William, can you provide your debug log? If my theory is correct, I think you can temporarily work around the issue by ensuring TH-9800 is selected before you try to do an upload or download to/from your radio. I'm guessing CHIRP has selected TH-7800 instead. Once I fix the model match code you won't have to do that anymore.
Ignore my last suggestion to force the model - it doesn't work. I just submitted a patch to fix the issue. I was able to reproduce the issue locally without either radio by:
1) Run chirp
2) Load TH-9800 from tests/images/TYT_TH-9800.img
3) Select Radio->"Upload to Radio"
The model incorrectly shows as TH-7800. TYT TH-7800 files identify as TYT TH-7800. This is because the code in both drivers is not specific enough.
Unfortunately, TYT chose to use "TH9800" as a model name for both radios: TH-7800 and TH-9800. Maybe other TH-7800 owners have something different? I used the band-limit registers to determine what model it really was. I also added a check for TH9800 or TH7800 in the TH-7800 model check in case TYT fixes this at some time or users update it in their own radios with the OEM software. Hopefully that will be more robust.
My most sincere thanks for your prompt attention and time to resolution.
