NXP FRDM K64F Board Issue

Just received the ATT Starter Kit Powered by AWS (https://starterkit.att.com/kits)

This is the main PDF from which i was following instructions

https://s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/starterkit-assets/Getting_Started_with_IoT_Starter_Kit_Powered_by... 

https://developer.mbed.org/platforms/frdm-k64f/ 

From link above, successfully downloaded the mBed Windows Serial Driver, but was stuck in updating the firmware. 

Ran across a article of issues with NXP Board and Windows 10. So made changes to the gpedit.msc as recommended in the following article: Bricking and Recovering OpenSDA Boards in Windows 8 and 10 - DZone IoT 

I was able to compile many programs from https://developer.mbed.org/compiler/ but has issues flashing them on to the board. The process is very random and am able to flash each program only after dozens of attempts. 

Over a period of 6 hours of brute force retries of downloading the bootloader and application over and over again, i was able to do 4 Labs from the file below. But this is clearly not sustainable.

I have documented the basic problems i have been having in the video below...

Hi,

I would recommend to update the OpenSDA firmware with Segger J-Link image.

Please check Segger J-Link for OpenSDA firmware could be downloaded from below link:

SEGGER - The Embedded Experts - OpenSDA / OpenSDA V2 

The FRDM-K64F board OpenSDA version is V2.0

Wish it helps.


Have a great day,

Turns out to be a Windows 10 issue. Demo runs fine on Mac. Thanks for your input.

I would really like it to get it working with Windows 10 though. The bootloader you provided did not resolve Windows 10 issue of board resetting over and over again. 

From link below, is there a bootloader i can try which will resolve Windows 10 issue? Please let me know which exact one to choose.
