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.
