[SOLVED] Firmware upgrading incident on MSP430FR4133 Launchpad

Recommended Posts

HI !

I had an incident yesterday when flashing my MSP430FR4133 Launchpad

last Energia was running on Ubuntu 18.10, looks like an unseccessfull  firmware upgrading started (no sollicited !!)

now , the board is not flashable , neither on Linux or Window10 (no more COM or tty/ACM port)

The code previously flashed in MSP runs on when MSP is directly powerd.

When connecting the boards shows only an HID port. (idVendor=2047, idProduct=0203

 

 


How to restore firmware ? Is it possible without special hardware tool ? just trough HID remainining link ?

Previously the board ran perfectly even fot EnergyTrace usage.

I had some new problems with tty/ACM on Ubuntu 18.10 (for Arduino Leonardo....)

Looks like something sending data on tty/ACM in the background.... maybe the reason for corrupted firmware upgrading

 

Best Regard,

Alain

Hi

i'm stille struggling to restore tty/ACM0 access on my MSP430FR4133 Launchpad witth Ubuntu 18.10

-no more modemmanager causing troubles on tty/ACM0 ( no use of modemmanager , so I removed it,    flashing Arduino Leonardo is now OK)

- 64 bit libmsp430.so (tested with file command), copied in /usr/lib

-mspdebug OK via HID  but      --allow-fw-update does'nt restore tty/ACM0  :

sudo mspdebug tilib --allow-fw-update

Must I specify some 'ACM' firmware for flashing via HID to some adress ?

I couldn't solve the problem with Mspdebug

Solved with CCS Cloud on Windows :  On Debug menu  I could launch 'Recovery' then 'Update ' 🙂

Launchpad is now OK... next step : test again  on Unbuntu 18.10  (without modemmanager holding TTY/ACM0....)

OK with last Energia running on Ubuntu 18.10 (32 bit   libmsp430.so  coming Energie replaced  by 64 bit one,)
