SimVim firmware upload unsuccessful.
I have always had trouble updating my firmware. I thought I had resolved my issue by changing my board but it came back with the latest version. I followed the instructions on the SimVim Getting Started page but after I finished uploading the firmware I “Hard reset” the broad and the message saying that I need to upgrade my firmware comes back.
Here is what I am using: Mega2560 Board with the IP module. My board is connected to a power adapter.
I unplugged my board I’ve tried multiple combinations. I unplugged the Power Network or just the power or let everything connected.
I used the upload firmware in the SimVim menu and wait until I am instructed to “Now connect your board…”
I connected my board using the USB cable and pressed the detect button.
My board gets detected on the COM5. I selected the board type & the Ethernet option. Then I clicked on the “Upload button”. From there pretty much everything freezes and it takes about 1 minute to complete. Sometime can see the Command Prompt Window and I’m able to see a few lines saying “avrdud.exe: stk500v2_RecriveMessage(): timeout”.
Any clue what I could do to resolve this?
