How to unbrick a MSP-EXP432P401R

Somehow I manage to brak my MSP432 eval board, I can no longer flash it using CCS or IAR tools.

Is there anyway to recover the board?

    I was able to fix my problem, I guess we can add a 4th cause to the error @1063. In my case somehow my last download managed to lock and disable JTAG preventing any new download from happening.
    I tried to switch to CMSIS-DAP on IAR and flash and it gave me that info and suggested to do a factory reset to solve the problem. That did it.

    Thanks for the quick reply :)

    hy guys i tried to do the factory reset as mentioned, but when I wanted to load the file the ccs said:

    CORTEX_M4_0: GEL: Error loading file 'C:\Users\Christoph\Downloads\2388.msp432_factory_reset.gel': function 'OnTargetConnect()' already defined

    and the status of the gel data was switched to Failed.

    Do you know how I could fix this ?
