Just wanted to note that the OpenMV V1.3 IDE cannot upload any firmware to the OpenMV V2, and seems to be incompatible with its own firmware release.
Just to note, that there is no physical issue or hard fault with the board - I get a flashing blue “heartbeat”. When I try to connect, after verifying that I have selected the correct COM port, baud rate and board type, the IDE presents the following error message:
So I proceed to use the built-in firmware upload utility. It (and preferences) are the only two available options, as the rest are grayed out.
For some odd reason, the firmware update utility doesn’t like .DFU files, and instead, only accepts .bin files. The utility clearly points out the .DFU file extension selection option at the bottom. I went ahead and hit ‘open’, and when I hit ‘OK’, the IDE did nothing but hang.
I also tried to upload firmware to the STM32 on the sensor using STMicroelectronic’s DfuSe Demo. I had tried both the V2 .DFU in the V1.3 release, as well as the V2 .DFU in the openmv-master zip from the Github page. Both did not work with the new V1.3 IDE (Or even the V1.2 IDE for that matter). I guess I’m stuck using the V1.1 release IDE and firmware (which doesn’t have a firmware utility/update prompt).
Has anyone gotten the OpenMV-V2 sensor to work with the V1.3 IDE/scripts? If the V1.1 release works fine, will the newer releases of code for things like object detection, facial detection, or FAST/FREAK work with the old IDE? Or could it be that I’m using the wrong method of uploading new firmware. Any help would be appreciated!
