Good evening!

I use WS6318EVM-BOOST without MSP-EXP430G2 and I am trying to upgrade WS6318 module from L30 to L31.
I do this according the Adwl-Light Downloader User Guide, but something is going wrong and I fail to perform the task.

When I am ready to click the Start button I click it and I see the following:
Look at file “1.jpg”

So my question are:

  1. What am I doing wrong?
  2. In Adwl-Light Downloader User Guide in paragraph 5 it is written: “4. Press BP101 on socket‐up for around 4 seconds. The firmware download will then start.” What is BP101?

Thank you!

Best regards,
