HW4.12 Firmware trouble

Hi Forum,

i have a VESC HW4.12. I updated the FW via VESC Tool to the VESC_default.bin. After that, and waiting 10s i tried to reconnect, but the USB Device is not recognized on my pc.

I can download newest FW from GIT and newest bootloader via ST-LINK, but the VESC is still not working. No ttyACM device...

Is there anything i made wrong ?

 

Regards

Georg

Update: I checkout FW 2.18 and this works after upload via STLINK.

CPU runs, red LED blink, VESC Tool recognize the VESC and forced me to upload new firmware.

i choose 410 HW and the default.bin FW. After uploading, the VESC is not working again

It is strange. I tried out to combine bootloader and firmware on my own:

compile 3.4 FW as hex file, compile bootloader and combine both with srec_cat

if i configure HW60 the Board boots up, if i configure HW410 the board did not boot

Can someone please give me a hint how to programm the correct firmware ?

close this thread please :)

the battery has to be connected ! It is not possible to update only with usb power. Should be written somewhere
