Making use of the CCS cloud on mac osx and on linux, the msp432 xds110 firmware was upgraded to the 188.8.131.52 version. Afterwards, I have tried to use it with CCS, and it was imposible to connect with the debugger. I tried to downgrade it to 184.108.40.206 using the firmware.bin available in the CCS, but it stills stays in 220.127.116.11.
Is there a solution to downgrade the firmware, or upgrade the CCS driver?
Thanks in advance,

I am able to downgrade to 18.104.22.168 on MacOS as well.
Attached is the firmware file I am using. I have run ./xdsdfu -e afterwards to make sure the firmware was programmed.
What error message do you get in CCS?
The error that I get is that I have to upgrade manually the using the xdsdfu tool.
When I program with the tool using the firmware available in the CCS 6.1.1 and check it with the xdsdfu -e, I always get the version 22.214.171.124. I will try with this new firmware.bin to see if the situation changes.
Thanks for your help,

It seems that it is necessary to downgrade the firmware to the version 126.96.36.199:
Answer on Linux CCS v 6.1.1.
Error connecting to the target:(Error -260 @ 0x0)An attempt to connect to the XDS110 failed.The cause may be one or more of: invalid firmware update, invalidXDS110 serial number, or faulty USB connection. The firmware andserial number may be updated using the xdsdfu utility found inthe .../ccs_base/common/uscif/xds110 directory of yourinstallation. View the ReadMe.txt file there for instructions.(Emulation package 188.8.131.52)
The console shows that there is one device with version 184.108.40.206:

I don't think downgrading the firmware manually to 22.214.171.124 is going to work. CCS is just going to force you to update it to 126.96.36.199 when you launch the debugger.
I get that exact same error message you are seeing when my XDS110 is in DFU mode instead of runtime mode.
If I have it in runtime mode then CCS launches fine (Win/Lin/Mac).
The VID and PID of yours are the same as mine.

Maybe your 2242 firmware files is corrupted. Here is a copy of mine. Try updating with this one. Then run the utility with -e to make sure it is in runtime mode and then try connecting with CCS. If that doesn't work I am going to need to pull in someone else to try to get to the bottom of what is going on.
The debug software will not allow connection to a different version of the firmware than was packaged with it. If you downgrade the firmware, then the auto-update feature will attempt to update to the correct version. This would be why you see that the XDS110 reverts to version 188.8.131.52 of the firmware each time.
At the moment, I'm not exactly sure what might be wrong. The XDS110 is able to communicate over the USB connection, otherwise the update and the xdsdfu utlity would not be able to work. The -m switch is executed by sending a message over the debug endpoint, so that endpoint is functional, or at least is receiving commands. So many of the common problems with OS drivers, permissions, or the like aren't the problem here.
Can you supply some more information? Please upload the .ccxml file you are using. And trying using the Test Connection button from CCS and post the results. I don't expect it to work, but it will include more info that might give a hint as to what is happening.
