I just downloaded the freedom-e310-arty-1-0.mcs file and followed instructions in the SiFive-E310-arty-gettingstarted-v1.0.pdf file. At first, it appeared to work, i.e. Vivado reported successfully adding the freedom-e310-arty-1-0.mcs using “Add Configuraton Memory Device” , successfully erasing, then successfully programming; “DONE” LED went green, and after pressing the “PROG” button, the “DONE” LED momentarily went off, the yellow LED next to the J10 blipped shortly, and then the “DONE” LED again lit green. I thought, “Great, everything seemed to work!”. However, after setting up a TeraTerm terminal and resetting as instructed, both LED4 and LED6 went green, and no activity occurred in the Terminial. I next tried resetting, going through all of the available BAUD rates, but no activity on the Terminal. Since nothing worked as published, I decided to reinstall the origninal demo programm which ran with the ARTY out of the box. Attempting to do so, I found that the ARTY is no longer recognized by Vivado:
The ARTY was working perfectly before following the instructions in the PDF.
Does anyone know how to revive a bricked ARTY?
