  • To bootload program onto OpenMote (here showing openwsn-fw/projects/common/bsp_radio_tx): scons board=openmote-b-24ghz toolchain=armgcc bootload=<OPENMOTE_PORT> bsp_radio_tx

    • On Windows I experienced ERROR: Timeout waiting for ACK/NACK after 'Synch (0x55 0x55)' . This was resolved by going into device manager and locating the COM ports for both devices and changing the baud rates to 115200 for both COM ports associated with the OpenMote (two COM ports appeared when plugging in the device)
