Hi Jon,

I am using serial tower using COM1. The link seems to be fine as I am
able to upload the firmware to the RCX...

Downloading brickOS firmware

Transferring "C:\Program Files\Transterpreter\lego-rcx\lego.srec" to RCX...


-- snip --
firmdl3 completed sucessfully

Nothing seems to work after uploaded the firmware.
