I have purchased a ToolStick with a C8051F330 daughter card. I have installed Simplicity Studio V4 in Linux.
So far, I have been unable to communicate with the device. When I try to run or debug software, there is an error message: Bootloader returned failure response.
The device manager identifies my board as TOOLSTICK330DC.
When I try to run flash8051 directly, e.g. "flash8051 -sn TS004A9750 -checkunlock" I get
OSX firmware update in progress.Bootload Run Command failure: status:00, FWresponse:00.
Firmware execution error: status:00.
Incorrect Firmware version download!Communication could not be established with the specified adapter.
Please confirm the current adapter selection and cable connection.flash8051 [ERROR: Bootloader returned failure response.]
I see this in the system log when I connect the ToolStick:

Maybe this can help. I'll try it later.
