BX3105 Reset Issue

My BX3105 devboard suddenly started to respond with errors to my AT commands, when I power cycle the device and hit the reset button I received the messages below on my terra term terminal:

Rebooting…

Can you please suggest how this issue can be fixed?

Hi @faridm,
It seems like the module is dumped after resetting. Have you tried to get the authentic firmware back on, by booting into the bootloader. Please refer to procedure below

  • Power off module. Place a jumper on Prog. Mode Pins to pull GPIO(27) to high (source). The position is highlighted as attached image
  • Open bootloader tool (I used Hercules tools) and press reset button on the module
  • Check ACK message, the boot loader of the module should go into communication mode. The messages like this:

rst:0x1 (POWERON_RESET),boot:0x13 (SPI_FAST_FLASH_BOOT)
configsip: 0, SPIWP:0xee
clk_drv:0x00,q_drv:0x00,d_drv:0x00,cs0_drv:0x00,hd_drv:0x00,wp_drv:0x00
mode:DIO, clock div:2
load:0x3fff80c8,len:4

ho 12 tail 0 room 4
load:0x40078000,len:13652

ÀWSIHÀ
At this point, the module enter bootload mode successfully

Hello,

I tried your solution and unfortunately it did not work.

When I press the reset button, I see only this message: ÀWSIH ( as it is: no A at the end)

and when I try the run the device as I should, I get back some failure error and symptoms I described before.

I run this command:

C:\Users\XXX\Documents\SierraWireless_BX310X\BX310x FW Updater v2>BX31xxBlTest.exe com5 -v
-v
\.\com5
BC310x bootloader version 2.6.

Then, I tried doing a firmware upgrade, but when I try to run this command:

C:\Users\XXX\Documents\SierraWireless_BX310X\BX310x.2.7.2>BX310x.2.7.2.bin com5 -v

“I get this error: This file does not have an app associated with it for performing this action. Please install an app or, if one is already installed, create an association in the Default Apps Settings page”

any way I can do a firmware upgrade to solve this issue, or my device is just not usable any more?

Cheers!

Hi Guys!

Can any tech support guy get back to me about my issues above?

Thank you in advance!

I am still waiting for tech support.
