Is there a way to factory reset the Intel Aero Flight Controller?

 I used the terminal commands "cd /etc/aerofc/PX4" and "sudo aerofc-update.sh nuttx-aerofc-v1-default.px4" which results in the terminal output:

 

BIOS_VERSION = Aero-01.00.13

OS_VERSION = Ubuntu 16.04.6 LTS"

AIRMAP_VERSION = unknown

FPGA_VERSION = 0xc2

AeroFC firmware version = 3.5.3

 

 

/dev/ttyS1:

Updating firmware on AeroFC

Writing force bootloader pin...

Done!

Reading force bootloader pin...

Force bootloader pin value = 0x1

Loaded firmware for 41,0, size: 932900 bytes, waiting for the bootloader...

If the board does not respond within 1-2 seconds, unplug and re-plug the USB connector.

Found board 41,0 bootloader rev 5 on /dev/ttyS1

However QGroundControl does not connect and shows "waiting for vehicle connection." However in the QGC tool Mavlink Inspector I can see "Vehicle 2" with 1HZ heartbeat, etc. This tells me that the flight controller is NOT flashing because it should reset the parameters including the vehicle's mavlink MAV_SYS_ID back to "Vehicle 1" but in QGC it's still showing "Vehicle 2." So is there a way to factory reset the flight controller OR another way to flash it?
