    Not sure what means AK?
    I have the B1ON. Mine is now on v1.30 firmware.
    I did hit an issue like this when I put a custom firmware on the device.
    Have you been able to connect ToneLib with the device?
    Does the pedal basically work?

    Try using v1.30 official firmware. It was still possible to use Tonelib with 1.30. Then I was able to use Device Manager 1.11 to add all manner of other ZDL files to pedal. Tonelib doesn't understand new FX but they do work.

    Try a few more times. IIRC powering the unit with batteries helped (I got it 2nd hand and battery power didn't work. Took it apart, cleaned out, refitted and then they worked. Or u can power with suitable 9v). Check your USB cable is working.
