st-flash (stlink v1) for Discovery VL board (F100)

Post by Pito »

!! The "STM32CubeProgrammer" does not support the "st_link v1 programmer" hw placed on the VL board anymore !!!

Hi, I've messed with the VL boards I found in my junkbox and ran into issues with the 1.6.1 version of the "st-flash" tool (Lubuntu 20.04).
It does not connect via usb to the VL board.
After spending hours I read the issue log there on the and the solution there worked - here is the install of the 1.6.0 from there:

Code: Select all

git clone -b v1.6.0
make clean
make release
cd build/Release && sudo make install
sudo ldconfig
// the udev rules files are still in place
// the /etc/modprobe.d file is still in place for /etc/modprobe.d/stlink_v1.conf
sudo udevadm control --reload-rules
sudo udevadm trigger
reboot the system
Now the flashing of the VL board works, ie.:

Code: Select all

pito@lub23:~$ st-flash write /tmp/arduino_build_463693/Fade.ino.bin 0x08000000
st-flash 1.6.0

Would be great to add the st-flash as the "programmer" for the "VL Discovery board" into the STM distro..
