G30TH dfu mode and rshell

Post by jgriessen » Tue Aug 02, 2016 3:10 pm

I have been able to use dfu mode, but not get a REPL.

Code: Select all

sudo make BOARD=G30TH PYTHON=python3 deploy
Use make V=1 or set BUILD_VERBOSE in your environment to increase build verbosity.
Writing build-G30TH/firmware.dfu to the board
File: build-G30TH/firmware.dfu

Missing serial port
Ideas what is needed? Some kind of reset power sequence? Probably not. This G30TH already had unprotect done.
After the above flashing, it gives a USB storage device function OK. My laptop recognizes that after each reset and
shows the files:

Code: Select all

ls /media/john/PYBFLASH/
boot.py  main.py  pybcdc.inf  README.txt
Does missing refer to what is compiled into the firmware? (Looking at requirements like python3 serial library)

I get same symptom with a pyboard. Problem is related to laptop or rshell, not G30TH.

Check to see if it comes up under a different number.

Code: Select all

ls -l /dev/ttyACM*
Check dmesg to see if there is some other problem with usb-serial not being recognized. I normally add udev rules like these:

then you shouldn't need to use sudo for programming or repl.

It was mostly a 20 second delay due to modemmanager app installed on my debian jessie system that fooled me.
After removing that, I get expected results with rshell.
