Gilthoniel, Saber Manager

Gilthoniel (Sindarin: Starkindler)
Gilthoniel is a basic saber manager program for the Polaris Evo Light Saber, by Lama di Luce.

Other manager programs are available.

Gilthoniel requires a version of the firmware greater than 1.9.14, very early versions of Anima Evo sabers shipped without any PC-communication, update your firmware to use any saber manager program. (See the updater opposite)

NOTE! The automatic nature of the flasher program detects any compatible arduino board, which may also exist in other hardware. In particular it has been reported that the "Oculus Rift S" may be detected and it's firmware overwritten by the flasher rendering it inoperable. Be advised to unplug other USB devices when using the flasher. -- This is not a risk when just using the standard colour setting functions in Gilthoniel.
