Bootloader on STM32 boards (PixHawk family) running Chibios

chibios
bootloader

(Luís Vale Gonçalves) #1

With the release of the Chibios versions of ArduPilot, one thing was missing, but not any longer. The bootloader.

@tridge managed to create a very easy process to update the bootloader, and the process is quite easy.

Note: If your board is one of the original first batches of the 3DR PixHawk, or can be identified as a FMUv2 or PX4v1 the bootloader is not included on the firmware file, so this procedure does not apply

Let’s go:

Connect your board to QGC with the USB cable and choose the latest release version of ArduPilot:

after this (the board reboots) go back to the same screen and tick the advanced check box at the top right corner

after the box is selected you can see a Flash Chibios bootloader button. Press it and done…

If you really, really want to be sure, then download the firmware file from http://firmware.ardupilot.org/Copter/stable/your_board

and flash it manually

then proceed to update the bootloader as above.

And done (again) :slight_smile:

Welcome to a full Chibios ArduPilot :slight_smile:
