Native Hardware

If you have one of the native hardware Black Magic Probes the process of upgrading the firmware is as follows:

Linux / MacOS

DFU-Util

Download or compile a Black Magic Probe (BMP) firmware.

Plug in the Black Magic Probe into your computer and run the following command:

sudo dfu-util -d 1d50:6018,:6017 -s 0x08002000:leave -D blackmagic.bin

You will need to install dfu-util package. On MacOS you can use homebrew, macports or fink depending on your preferred package manager. You will need version 0.8.0 or greater to support the dfuse commands.

If this does not manage to switch your BMP into bootloader mode you can also plug in your BMP while holding down the button. This will force the BMP to stay in the bootloader on power up.

Plug in the Black Magic Probe into your computer and run the following command:

dfu-util.exe -d 1d50:6018,:6017 -s 0x08002000:leave -D blackmagic.bin

You will need to download the Windows release of dfu-util package.
