Re: Blue Pill programming procedure
Hello Jim,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
The link to the STLINK utilities is at: https://github.com/texane/stlink
Just in case that link does not make it through to you, here it is, broken down:
http colon double forward slash github dot com forward slash texane
forward slash stlink
At that site you will find the STLINK utilities used to flash a BIN
file to a 'Blue Pill'.
From what I understand, pre-compiled binaries of the utilities are
available for many OSes.
So you should find the pre-compiled utilities for MS-Windows there.
As for myself, I have been using the GNU/Linux OS for 23+ years and I
do not have MS-Windows on a PC.
As a matter of fact, I had to compile the STLINK utilities for the
GNU/Linux distribution that I use (Debian).
So I cannot help you with MS-Windows.
On my system, the STLINK utilities work with an STLINK V2 dongle (see
The BIN file for the latest W8BH Morse Tutor can be found at:
The command line for the st-flash utility is:
$ st-flash write mct.bin 0x8000000
the '$' is the command line prompt. Do not type the '$'.
'st-flash; is the name of the utility.
'write' is an option.
'mct.bin' is the name of the BIN binary file to be flashed to the 'Blue Pill'.
'0x8000000' is the hex address that the bin file will be written to.
I do not know what the MS-Windows command-line equivalent is?
It may be documented at the github texane stlink site linked to above?
If anyone has successfully used an STLINK V2 dongle and flashed a BIN
file to a 'Blue Pill' using MS-Windows, please share your experience.
