it's my first time to use intel edison mini breakout board ,i followed the getting started instructions on https://software.intel.com/en-us/flashing-firmware-on-your-intel-edison-board-windows https://software.intel.com/en-us/flashing-firmware-on-your-intel-edison-board-windows, i downloaded the configuration tool as mentioned in the above link but my board wasn't detected on this tool, so i tried to reflash it manually but it wasn't worked and this message appear
i also failed to reflash it by platform flash tool ,it always shows that edison cannot connect to my laptop but I can log in edison by using PuTTY just as shown in this link
i don't know why ?
Thank you for your interest in the Intel Edison board.
I have run into the same issue as you.
Run "flashall". When "Please plug and reboot the board" appears, disconnect the A (or middle) USB port and the barrel connector for the power. At this point everything is switched off. Then reconnect A and the barrel connector to reboot the board.
Wait about 5 minutes for the rest of the process to run automatically.
Hope this helps.
before i performing what you mentioned, i tried to login edison using putty via serial comm as i mentioned in my question it doesn't work as before and also the edison board heats up and making disconnect.
what is the problem ?
Are you powering the board via USB or using an external power supply?
If you are using an external power supply, please make sure the voltage isn't higher than 12V otherwise it will start to heat up.
Also, regarding your issue with Putty, please follow this guide if you want to set up a serial connection: https://software.intel.com/en-us/setting-up-serial-terminal-intel-edison-board
and make sure you use the USB port from the top for serial communication.
If you have a Windows host machine you should see USB Serial port COMx (x being the number of the port) in Device manager. You can use that port in Putty and set the speed to 115200.
Hope this helps.
i'm powering the board via USB , once i plugged the usb to power it , it became very hot .
the putty problem , from a week i can login edison via serial comm using putty but now it doesn't respond and only black window appears.
hint: my windows can recognize it only as a driver.
i'm afraid that it become useless, because my graduation project based on it, so i need to know what's the problem ?
Thank you for your patience.
We can process a warranty return. In order to do that, please send us the serial and part numbers of the board along with a proof of purchase and a return address.
i'll try to get it from the competition that i joined , and i'll reply to you as soon as i get the purchase.
in this while , can we find another solution because we have one month to present ?
sorry for being late for replying and thanks for your efforts.
Thank you for your reply.
We need to check if the board has a physical malfunction. There's not much we can do until you send it to us to process for warranty.
