I got issues about my CW1173 whose bootloader is not able to be detected by my ubuntu 22.04 LTS. It used to work but after a while it suddenly doesn’t work anymore. I try to erase the firmware on it following the instructions here. However, the CW1173 is still not visible by command
ls -l /dev/ttyUSB*. (Even
ls -l /dev/ttyACM* does not work). Any idea how to detect the bootloader again?
Thank you all in advance!
Did you try:
import chipwhisperer as cw
Yes, the response is:
Could not find bootloader serial port, please see Updating Firmware — ChipWhisperer 5.7.0 documentation
I can see the dimmed LED lights on the board btw
If it used to work on this computer and nothing else has changed, maybe there is a problem with the connection; can you try a different USB port / cable / computer?
I tried with other cables and other computers. It is still not working.
I also tried on WIndows but the device manager cannot detect anything either
Yes, I have shorted the device and device now have LEDs displayling like that.
Can you post the result of
sudo dmesg | grep USB?
The ChipWhisperer You saw is the other one I used yesterday, not the problematic one. The problematic one’s info is not shown here.
Just to confirm, was the malfunctioning ChipWhisperer plugged in before you ran
Yes. I saw the dimmed LEDs.
