Description

Retevis released an updated RT22 model, mine just happens to be Camo. When trying to Download or Upload to the radio I am getting a "Radio Identification Failed" error, even had someone else try it on their computer. Any ideas on how to fix it?

Does the original factory software still work.

Please attach a debug.log file so it can be examined.

Factory software works on Camo RT22.

Updated by YCAH Technical about 1 year ago

I'm having the exact same issue with the same model, a brand new RT22 (happens to be the camo color also).

Here's the relevant part from the debug.log file. I'll upload the entire file as well.

My dealership just bought 20 new RT22 (not "S"" model) and Chirp worked flawlessly before.
I have one Walkie that works perfectly (original walkie from when we first bought some). it uploads and downloads but as soon as I connect another walkie (new one) it will give errors and will not download or upload. has anyone found a fix for this yet?

I've uploaded a screen shot of the Data downloaded from the good walkie and then plugged in the new one and tried to upload.

Updated by Vladimir Kondratiev 10 months ago

I have same issue. Have old RT22 that works well while new one failed with "Radio identification failed." debug.log exactly the same as in #3. Ubuntu Linux.

I did quick fix by simply adding new ID with hope nothing else changed. I can, at least, read factory settings - see attached. Patch attached as well

Updated by Vladimir Kondratiev 10 months ago

When trying to upload to the new RT22 after fix described in #6, radio ID changed to "\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\xf8\xff".
If I add this ID as well, it seems to work. On the "settings" page, "Embedded message 1" initially (factory settings) has value "P3207! Pb%FPb%F 0" - it is definitely radio ID is there. After flashing, "Embedded message 1" first 6 characters becomes "\x00". Looks like new RT22 need some more care, this is beyond my abilities

  • Tracker changed from New Model to Bug
  • Subject changed from Retevis RT22 New Model "Radio Identification Failed" to Retevis RT22 New firmware "Radio Identification Failed"
  • Target version set to chirp-daily
  • Model affected set to Retevis RT22
  • Platform set to Windows

Has the patch been added since?
You may want to join the developers mailing list, see Wiki, "Developers".

Updated by Bernhard Hailer 5 months ago

Linked half a dozen similar reports for this radio and its variants (WLN KD-C1, Luiton LT-316, etc.).

Updated by Vitaly M 5 months ago

Hi guys, I have the same issue with new Retevis RT22 stations. I have sent a message to Retevis support and wait for their feedback.
Also I had some troubles with Retevis universal USB driver, but downloaded its latest version from chip’s vendor of an adapter (the adapter has produced by Retevis)

Updated by Dan OLeary 5 months ago

In a blatant example of "standing on the shoulders of giants", I changed one character in Mr Kondratiev's patch and was able to read and write to my KD-C1. Specifically, I changed "P32073" to "P3207!" (the patch did not work for me in its original form). I am not at all familiar with Linux so I have to assume I got lucky, but I was willing to sacrifice my radio to test my idea. By loading the altered module, I have been able to read and write successfully more than once. The factory software still can read and write to the radio.

I have also experienced this bug while trying to program a new Retevis RT22 with CHIRP. I am on MacOS 10.15.5 (Catalina) and CHIRP works fine (with my Baofeng UV-5R and other radios). For the Retevis RT22, I got the "Radio Identification Failed" message when trying to Download from Radio. I am not a real developer, but here's what I tried: I downloaded the most recent MacOS version of CHIRP and manually opened up the package. I navigated to the retevis_rt22.py file, opened it up with Text Editor, and made the one change suggested by Mr. OLeary in #11 above. I was then able to download and upload new info to my RT22! So that change seems to be the fix. However, I'm not sure what happened, but now my test copy of CHIRP no longer communicates with my RT22; I'm sure it has something to do with the hacky way I made the change. I hope this patch can be incorporated into the CHIRP baseline soon.

Updated by EP Lee 2 months ago

Hello all. I can verify that the "butchered" module uploaded by Mr. Webb a couple weeks ago can be loaded manually into Chirp and allows read/write from one of the newer versions of the Retevis RT22 (freshly ordered from Amazon via a Lightning Deal). Something must have changed in their hardware revision.

Prior to this, the factory RT22 software was able to read/write the radio just fine as well.

Hope this can be folded into the next release of Chirp newer than 20200807. Thanks!

#6757 might have additional information.

I am trying to program a couple of RT622 (European version of RT22), bought from Amazon.de in september 2020. I have tried both Mac and Windows CHIRP daily from september but neither work for me. Error message is unable to connect after 5 tries or something similar.
I have tried the ID patch without luck. Tried also opening first retevis_rt22_butchered.py but didn't work for me.

I apologize. Should of course have checked the wiki first. Here is the debug log:

@Aie Paie: your problem seems to be unrelated to the original post; your log states:

Clone failed: The radio did not accept program mode after five tries.
Check you interface cable and power cycle your radio.

Therefore, you might have a cable / driver / connector issue. Please refer to these Wiki articles:
CableGuide
CableGuide FTDI OEM Cables
RTSystemsCablesAndMavericks (if you're running MacOS)
Windows notes: If you are using a generic cable with a Prolific chip, you will very likely need to downgrade your driver to version 3.2.0.0.
It can be found at http://www.miklor.com/COM/UV_Drivers.php
MacOS notes: this OS is apparently very picky about USB to Serial cables. From what I heard, only (genuine) FTDI-based cables can be made work.
You must have the KK7DS Python runtime for Mac OSX installed.
Also see MacOS Tips!
Linux notes: Linux generally is quite good with USB to Serial converter drivers. The most likely cause for grief is a connector which doesn't provide good electrical contact.
Bluetooth notes: connections often suffer from timing issues, please try a cable instead.

As for the original issue (radio failed to identify): we leave the ticket open until a fix has been implemented.

Thank you for your support. I did install the driver, the Prolific one from 2007 but didn't help. I will return the cable that I bought from Retevis and order another one.

Good Day,

I am having the same issues as described above. I am not currently Python savvy and I have been trying to follow the explanation provided in entries #5, #7, #12 and #13. I am using Win10 with the chirp-daily-20201014-installer.exe. In searching the CHIRP folders I have been unable to locate any reference to Retevis RT22. Could anyone explain or point me to an explanation of how to locate the files specific to the Retevis RT22 and what specific software I would need to view/edit them? I used notepad and Notepad++ to open some .PYD files in the CHIRP folder to get an idea of what I would be looking at, and both came up with nonstandard characters, so I figure I must be doing something wrong.

Thank you for your help time and assistance.

A solution for the RT22, RT22S and RT622 is close.
