I have a Baofeng UV-5R Firewame BFB297, I bought the cable I installed the driver and CHIRP 0.3.0, everything works perfectly, I can clone save configs, etc ... all a wonder!

This week I got another Baofeng UV-5R, but when I try to clone CHIRP 0.3.0 I get the following error: "Radio refused to send block 0x0000" and the radio restarts! just stay in it ...

One thing I noticed is that this new radio's Firewame is "BFB298", ask?

Why does everything work fine on BFB297 and not work on BFB298?

Have a solution to this problem?

Chirp 0.3.0? It's ancient :-)
Please download a daily build and see whether your problem persists. Thanks!

Problem persists in CHIRP daily-20200227, although now the error message states "Radio refused to send second block 0x1f00" rather than 0x0000.

debug.log attached.
