BOOSTXL-CC2650MA: Cant programming a snp file
Part Number: BOOSTXL-CC2650MA
I am working with the MSP432P401R Launchpad and CC2650 Module BoosterPack.
At first I tried the 'project zero' from SIMPLELINK-SDK-BLUETOOTH-PLUGIN_1.40.00.42 It worked ok, I tried it with BLE Scanner and was able to control LEDs and get button press notifications. However, I could not see any reply from the serial terminal. So, I thought it could be because of the SNP image file.
Then I tried the 'sensor_boosterpack' example. But this time it didn't work. The BLE scanner App could not detect any BLE device. I pressed S1, which should start the advertising. But no response.
This time I got a reply from the serial terminal at startup. But there should be a line 'State set to idle!' according to the manual which was missing.
I pressed the S2 button. According to the manual, it should update the SBL. But nothing happened.
Therefore, I decided to download the SNP hex file [simple_np_cc2650bp_uart_pm_sbl_2_02_01_18a_merge.hex] into the CC2650 module.
I followed this guide - SimpleLink MSP432 SDK Bluetooth Plugin User Guide
I connected the XDS110 debugger of the MSP432 Launchpad to CC2650 module boosterpack. Before that, I removed all the J101 jumpers of the MSP432 launchpad. According to the image suggested by the user guide.
but I failed to flash the SNP hex file using TI SmartRF Flash Programmer 2
can anyone suggest any solution.
Do I really need to download the SNP, or the sensor_boosterpack example is not working due to some other issues?
If I do need to flash the SNP then how can I overcome the issue regarding the flash programmer failure?
thanks in advance....
However, I inserted some images [ just copied and pasted]. Those images were not included in the original post somehow.

In reply to sunnyiut:
Hi, your arrangement for programming the CC2650 needs to reflect this: dev.ti.com/.../sdk_bluetooth_plugin.html
Please follow all the steps in the above link for programming the SNP.
Right now, the way your arrangement is, the CC2650 won't receive enough power to actually update. It used to be able to flash in the old arrangement you have pictured above, but it was only able to due to an issue we had with the LaunchPad that has since been fixed and the above is now how we request people to flash the SNP.
