In the most recent batch of HiFive1 boards, some of them were accidentally shipped without the factory image on them, so we’re releasing instructions for re-flashing the HiFive1 to its factory default state. The default image includes the LED fading program, which gives a quick visual indication your HiFive1 is working properly.
From your Freedom E SDK root directory (typically
freedom-e-sdk), simply run this script. Here’s a helper script that does all of that at once:
cd freedom-e-sdk curl https://static.dev.sifive.com/dev-tools/flash_bootloader.sh | sh
As a side note, in case you haven’t already seen it, check out our latest campaign: the HiFive Unleashed.
As always, you can find us on the SiFive forums or on Twitter @SiFiveInc.
