Bricked Jeff Probe


Recommended Posts

I have a jeff probe. I tried to update the probe to what I thought was a newer firmware version. Since there is very little documentation and community support, I used the firmware for the native black magic probe. This bricked the device but left the bootloader. While I was trying to get the probe back to it's original state, the bootloader got wiped as well. I have searched everywhere for a prebuilt copy of the firmware but it doesn't seem to exist. I found the repository github.com/flirc/blackmagic. No matter what I try, I can't get it to build. It always errors out before the firmware is built. I tried going to your support page and download page for the jeff probe but it is always "under construction." I lost usb functionality with the bootloader but I have it hooked up to the bus pirate using open ocd. Please, I need a copy of the prebuilt firmware to restore the device.

Also, the device will not boot into bootloader mode because the bootloader was wiped. That means, if I hold down the button and then plug it in, it still will not go into bootloader mode. lsusb, dmsg, and the like do not detect the device. NOTHING works.

I'm having the same issue, the board I wanna debug is lpc4370 and it would error out, so i figured a firmware update would help. But it wont build. Newer toolchains find more warnings and errors, but even turning off Werror it still finds actually errors not warnings. I worked thru sum of them before giving up. A schematic is a must if we ever wanna repurpose it as well, or use sercom mixing to bust out say i2c. Reading the forum etc it doesnt seem likely well ever even get a response on this. Even knowing what toolchain version they managed to compile this with would be a huge help.

I really fucked up, I'm sorry. I'll get you a new board, I'm sorry it got messed up while you were waiting.

I updated github with better instructions, a quick fix to samd targets, and binaries. I also included schematics.

I don't do much work on this. I am so overwhelmed with this new product. Harmony competitor. Massive project. Years in the making. Starting production shortly. Still a lot to do but it's all quickly coming together.
