I was running into the same problem with my Windows 8 tablet.  When I clicked on Detect Device it would cause the OS to boot up and then it would fail to upload or detect the device unless I shut it down and started over.

Here are the steps I took and it worked for me:

  • I did not have the Firmware Updater started on the tablet
  • Connect the USB cable to my tablet.
  • Plugin the USB cable to the OS while holding down B2.
  • Release B2 after 1 second
  • Wait for the tablet to beep; indicating that the OS was recognized by the computer
  • Launch the Firmware update software
  • DO NOT DO AUTO DETECT…the LCD screen on the OS should stay blank.  If it doesn’t restart the process.
  • Select the Device from the drop down….in my case it is OpenSprinkler_v2.1
  • Select the Firmware to upload
  • Click Upload Firmware

Hope that helps!
