OK, so I also have 2 bricked Pixracers here now. None of them bricked while
crashing though, and believe me, we have crashed often. To me it looks like
they tend to brick if the power gets cut during boot... but not always, only
sometimes. Is there such a thing as a "soft bricking" in Pixracers maybe?
And can this be fixed somehow? Can someone maybe point me to a documentation
of boot process for the STM chip?
The "bricking" people are talking about has a sepcific pattern; the stm32
chip gets very, very hot. Burny-hot.
If you're not getting that, your device may be recoverable (or just
differently permanently stuffed, of course).
Nothing should be able to get soft-bricked when pwoered off at boot - but
What lights come on when you turn the thing on?
The stm32 boot process won't tell you a lot - it's the way its hooked up
to the LEDs on the board and the software that's on there that will help.
But if you really want to know - google for "stm32427 data sheet".
