I'm trying to program a Quickfeather Sparkfun board using Tynifpga-programmer, but without success.

First I can not get the breathing green led as expected when pressing the user button. LED come fixed green for a time, thne blue is blinking again, and finally switch off.
I got the serial link well configured and can interact with the board through the terminal.
I got:
Sparkfun thing+ LED / User Button Test
SW Version: qorc-sdk/qt-apps/qt_helloworldsw
May 10 2021

then the command line is working fine.

When programming (or trying), I use:

Code: Select all

qfprog --port /dev/ttyACM0 --m4app ./output/qf_helloworldsw.bin --mode m4
and I get:

Code: Select all

CLI mode
ports =  ['/dev/ttyACM0 (QuickFeather)'] 1
Using port  /dev/ttyACM0 (QuickFeather)

and nothing more

Any idea to see if all is well programmed or how to make it happening?

Hi Cyril, I am having the same issue, flashing freezing up on the FastREAD stage. Did you ever manage to resolve this at all?
