Instructions for Flashing

1.7Repeat the procedure described above and select ISENIN 1.0.0_2hex    Start programming as before (program and verify)

***you don't need to restart the ISE-NIN after first programming step, in case the ST-LINK tool hangs, just reconnect the USB cable.

1.8 Disconnect and restart ISE-NIN its important to remove the Programmer from the ribbon cable - or the device will not start !! 

1.9  Start ISE-NIN and go in the ISE-NIN Menu and perform "reset all settings", otherwise some functions doesn't work.

 2.1.1  press the SHIFT button on ISE-NIN while powering on the device, the OLED shows "DFU mode", (note: windows users have to reboot the PC or windows can’t recognize the DFU-mode)
