(Be the first to rate this!)

This package was made in hopes of helping users that are having problems updating / flashing their JB-King dongle with the latest PB2 v1.02 FW files (2.71)

The main difference of this package with others, is that this one includes a different Flashing Utility, this one was obtained from STMicroelectronics official software suite. It presents more advanced user options than the one provided by JB-King / PB2.

Files have been renamed and organized for better understanding of the flashing process as well.

Note: You must install the JB-King / PB2 dongle drivers for Windows x86 / x64 (included) before proceeding.

-----------------------------------
Flashing 2.3 -> 2.7 FW to JB-King
===================================

To ensure the flashing process of 2.7, first we must make a recovery flashing of FW 2.3.

The flashing consist of 2 phases, because we must flash 2 different targets on the dongle.

NOTE: When removing the dongle from the PC, don't use the Windows "Safely remove hardware" just disconnect the dongle after you finish the flashing process.

2- Wait until the device is properly detected
3- Run the included Flashing Utility "DfuSeDemo.exe"
4- In the "Upgrade or Verify Action" section click on "Choose..."
5- Select the included "2.3_Target_01.dfu", on the side box it should say "Target in file... 01 ST"
6- Now in the "Action" list box displayng the available device targets, select the "01"
7- Select the "Optimize upgrade duration (Remove some FFs)" checkbox
8- Press "Upgrade" and wait for the process to complete
