I have recently been made aware that the LCD displays currently being shipped are a new revision which uses a completely different display controller. Not only does it require a new library, but the wiring is different. Same part number, etc, but completely different behavior. I guess this is the sort of thing you can expect when you buy parts from 2nd rate companies.
I have updated the instructions (http://mbed.org/users/TickTock/code/CANary/
) to include instructions for both. Also, anyone using the Rev2.00 version of the display will also have to edit the precompile.h file in the TOUCH_TFTx2_w9341 library and set USE_ILI9341 to 1 prior to compiling.
