My QHY5 seems to work as it should!
Looping and capturing works without errors.

I'm very pleased, thanks for the good work!

(in dmesg my QHY5 shows up with idVendor=1618, idProduct=0921, that number is not in 85-qhyccd.rules but it still works)

Your camera is in the rules :)

Sorry, I had to be more specific; the idvendor (1618, QHYCCD) is clear, but my idproduct (0921) is not in the rules file to load a .HEX firmware file.

I expected something like this:
ACTION=="add", SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTRS{idVendor}=="1618", ATTRS{idProduct}=="0920", RUN+="/sbin/fxload -t fx2 -I /lib/firmware/qhy/QHY5II.HEX -D $env{DEVNAME}"

but than with {idproduct}=="0921"

That's because it is 9020 and after the firmware is loaded, it becomes 9021.

The only issue I have now is that Phd2 (for those so inclined) sees the camera via indi, but not with a direct connection (on an Odroid-N2 Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS kernel 4.9.180-62 aarch64). Not sure I want to break things by tinkering this time.

That seems to have dome the trick on my laptop running Linux, the Canon 100D and QHY5LII-M running happily together once again. Not had a chance to test it on the TinkerBoard yet - rain stops play :-(
Equipment:
EQ6R-Pro with SW 190MN, ATIK 383L+ and ATIK EFW2, guiding with QHY5LII-M on an Orion GuideScope (run from a PC in the observatory running SGPro)
EQ6R with SW 150PDS, Canon 100D (astro mod), guiding with with QHY5LII-M on an Orion GuideScope (run from a TinkerBoard S)

I am still getting this error on the latest 1.4.4 Rpi3 and Rpi4 versions. I ran software updater today, Sept. 29, on both machines and the rules file in lib\udev\rules.d was updated with the 9/28/2019 85-QHYCCD.rules. I have rebooted both machines a number of times.

My camera is the Orion SSAG. It has worked well in the past connected as a QHY. On Stellarmate, the camera is listed as QHY-M-. In the rules file, under SSAG, it says stuff like idproduct "0011" and QHY5Loader.hex.

It connects with no problems, but will not take a picture. In the camera module it says capture aborted and in another place it says GetQHYCCDSingleFrame error (-1)

Do I need to run a firmware update or downgrade on the camera somehow?

What else should I be doing to make this work?

QHY confirmed the issue in the SDK and are working on a fix.

There is an updated libqhy in INDI Nightly repo that should fix the QHY/SSAG issue. Can you please update and test?

I just updated both my StellarMateOS_1.4.4 Pi3 and Pi4 systems. Can confirm that the QHY5LII-C, QHY5PII-C, QHY PoleMaster, and QHY168C are all working perfectly. Thanks
