Unable to flash Cf Firmware 2019.02 with Client 2018.10

Post by aybarskizilay » Mon Mar 25, 2019 3:39 pm

Hello everyone,

I am using CF Client 2018.10. I wanted to flash latest CF firmware 2019.02 via Client Bootloader option.

However, I wasn't able to do it.

CF is connected successfully; however when I click to "Program" progress bar doesn't show any progress and I immediately see "Program Completed".

According to the website, progress bar suppose go through 2 times.

When I flashed the CF 2018.10 firmware, it works properly.

Is it related to CF Client version or it is general issue?

Thanks

Are you setting your Crazyflie in bootloader mode (both blue LED blinking?
What file are you opening in the bootloader dialog, you should open the file "firmware-cf2-2019.02.zip".

The update process is not supposed to be affected by the version of the firmware: the bootloader in the Crazyflie is an independent software that cannot be erased/updated by itself. This makes it safe so that you cannot brick a Crazyflie using only the bootloader.

Hi Arnaud,

Yes, I press Power button on CF for 3-4 seconds, then both M2-M3 blinking blue.
When I clicked to "Initiate bootloader cold boot", Status becomes "Connected" as it expected.

I browse and open "firmware-cf2-2019.02.zip". When I clicked to "Program", there is nothing happening on progress bar and program directly says "Program Completed".

That's why I flashed the firmware 2018.10, which works properly. I am also happy with that :)

I just wanted to try latest firmware and encountered with that issue. I will try with new CF Client and let you know then...

Thanks

Aybars

this is very odd, I do not see the same behavior in my machine.

I can try to reproduce your environment. What OS are you running and how did you install the client (ie. from python or with the windows installer)?

Hello Arnaud,

I using Windows 10 64-bit operation system. I have used windows installer for installing CF Client.

Thanks
