Hackweek3: Logitech hacking
I planning to rewrite lomoco since a long time now. The problem is that Logitech has introduced a new protocol to talk to the devices. For the main features of these new mice we have already proof of concept code but some features aren’t suppport.
I still don’t know how they identify a cordless mouse connected to a receiver. The MX Revolution and the G7 share the same receiver. Yesterday I’ve discovered how to read the battery status from the MX and VX Revolution. I can display the battery status in percent and if the mouse is charging or is fully charged.
I’ve put together a proof-of-concept code here. Now it is time to think about a library, liblomoco. If someone is interested in hacking, feel free to contact me 😉
If you have a VX Nano or G7 please send me the output of the vx_hack. If you own a G7 please send me the output of the ‘lsusb’ command.
