Note: regarding the Twizy, V3 works very similar to V2. All telemetry data tables and tuning profiles are fully compatible, and the commands are very similar. Therefore, the basic descriptions and background info from the V2 manual are valid for V3 as well.

Hints on V3 commands vs. V2

  • V3 commands need to be in lower case.
  • When accessing via USB terminal, first issue enable (login).
  • V3 commands are similar to V2 commands, just structured slightly different.
  • Try help, ? and xrt ?. Twizy commands are subcommands of xrt.
  • TAB only works via USB / SSH. Shortcuts can be used generally, e.g. mo t instead of module tasks.
  • A usage info is shown if a command syntax is wrong or incomplete.
