*STM32duino-bootloader [available on github from mfgr]
Can you please post a link to this? I could not find it.
I see they do now have an HID Bootloader: WeAct_HID_Bootloader_F4x1 base on STM32_HID_Bootloader

The actual .hex file is here: https://github.com/WeActTC/MiniF4-STM32 ... Bootloader

I am still awaiting my F411 boards so I can not currently do any tests :(

Their (WeAct) bootloaders do not work with Arduino and stm core.
HID bootloader upload searches for device 1209:BEBA and WeAct set their to 0483:572a

You need to use their uploader sofware called WeAct_HID_Flash-CLI, to be downloaded from https://github.com/WeActTC/MiniF4-STM32 ... Bootloader

Yes but you need to modify some Arduino IDE boards files to add the WeAct uploader software in the IDE menu

A work around is to compile the sketch e create the shetck.bin file e then upload it in a console using:

Code: Select all

./WeAct_HID_Flash-CLI Sketch.bin
under linux or

Code: Select all

./WeAct_HID_Flash-CLI.exe Sketch.bin
under Windows
