Hydra eploy project


#1

Hi,

I have some trouble deploying my project to hydra. The project is running in VS2012 and I can deploy and debug everything to the hydra board by pressing F5.

When I make a power cycle or reset of the board the application is not running automatically.

What is to do to start the application after reset by the bootloader without any pc?


#2

At the moment debug.


#3

@ MiRo - After you start the board, connect to it in FEZ Config. Are there any messages output to the window?


#4

I tried to use release setting in VS2012 with the same result. I can deploy everything and after reset, the application is not starting without pc.

I created a hex file with the Deployment tool and deployed it to the board with the same result. The application will be deployed to Base Address 0x00294000.

After the reset the T43 display shows the TinyBooter sceen and stops with the message:

“Waiting”


#5

Hi,

I tried the .NET Micro Framework deploy tool and tried

Plug In -> Debug -> Reboot CLR

then the board reboots and the application is starting. If I press the Reset button on the board, the application is not starting!


#6

What version of the firmware are you currently running?


#7

Hi James,

I’m using the network Firmware out of the 2014R1 package.

MF Deploy says 4.2.6.2

@ MiRo - We will add this to the list of issues to investigate.

Hello James,

I did some further tests with 2013R3 and 2014 R2 Beta releases.

I built new clean projects and just set the debugLED true. I deployed the projects and tried the power reset.

Same behaviour with the hydra board, the application will not start after reset in stand alone mode!

// Use Debug.Print to show messages in Visual Studio's "Output" window during debugging.
            Debug.Print("Program Started");
            Mainboard.SetDebugLED(true);

Hello James,

I fixed the hydra problem.

The problem was a damaged flat cable connector at a extender modul. Pin 9 was shortet to GND in the connector! After I changed the flat cable the board is booting my application now.

Hard to believe, but this little cable caused all my problems…

Thx for your support!
