After I finally received my HiFive1 board, I was excited to try it. I plugged it in on the USB port, the two green power indicator LEDs lit up but nothing else happened, the RGB-LED stayed dark. I also tried using an external power supply to power the board, but it still didn’t show the led_fade demo.
After that, I tried to re-flash the led_fade program and suddenly the RGB-LED showed the expected pattern. However, after a reset or power loss it still remained dark. In the next step I tried to re-flash the bootloader, considering the modified values for the linker and the openocd command. Unfortunately this also did not fix the issue. I discovered that I could manually start the execution of the program with openocd’s resume 0x2000000 command.
Does anybody know how to fix it?
