My beta kit also arrived today. Yay! But like some others I’m also struggling a bit to get the bootloader and firmware loaded. I saw there is another thread about the same subject, but decided to start my own for my questions so as not to cloud the other thread.
I’m a bit confused by this step:
You will need to “power-up” or “reset” the board while using a jumper wire from ground to PA11 (Do not hold the pin to ground no longer than 3 seconds - damage to processor may result) to access the Atmel SAM-BA bootloader. There you will see a virtual COM port. Aquire the COM port number.[/quote]
- Do I need to start sam-ba_2.12.exe before I do this or after.
- I see nothing happening when I do this. Is Samba supposed to pick up the serial port automatically or do I need to refresh? Is this perhaps because I first need to install a driver for sam-ba?
Looking forward to hear from you guys that have already done this.
