the boot loader is in a separate repo on my account.

Look in the stm32duino-bootloader repo, in the binaries folder, pick the bin file that matches you board ( I think it's generic pc13)

Download the bin ( note on GitHub you need to go into the file and press the Raw button), download...

Then flash using STMs tool

I just got my first Blue Pill the other day. Was having trouble getting anything to upload using Arduino IDE and serial.

Found this thread and went looking for a flash uploader for Linux.
Ended up using stm32flash and this command.

Code: Select all

sudo stm32flash -k  /dev/ttyUSB0
And got this result

Code: Select all

stm32flash 0.4

Interface serial_posix: 57600 8E1
Version      : 0x22
Option 1     : 0x00
Option 2     : 0x00
Device ID    : 0x0410 (Medium-density)
- RAM        : 20KiB  (512b reserved by bootloader)
- Flash      : 128KiB (sector size: 4x1024)
- Option RAM : 16b
- System RAM : 2KiB
Read-UnProtecting flash
Removing WRITE protect did not seem to do anything for me but the read protect did.
