I was aware of the "updater" sketch. Sense was if could, better to use USB to Serial or STLink/JLink to upgrade the bootloader. I have a couple of Baite Maple Mini Clones, so I could try with one and see if I mess it up doing so first time via "updater" script. Part of challenge I thought was choosing the appropriate varient of the bootloader to load.

I added support for this on a few boards a while ago (sorry I can't remember precisely which boards as there are soooo many variants).
No worries. I would look at the board definitions file for this information I assume?

One board I tried with the STM32duino IDE noted the need for a STLink for that board varient I choose from the STMduino board listed when choosing a board from the IDE. It appears the USB of the board only provides power, but I am not sure as yet. Two LEDs blink when power is applied to the board about every second on and second off. The other board I am not sure of as no LED blinks and IDE does not find the board. Neither board shows in lsusb unlike the Maple Mini Clone that does show with a lsusb.
