Firmware upgrade Issue with Win 7
I am trying to upgrade my KL-25z's firmware from my windows 7 netbook but with no success. Unfortunately it looks like I got one of the older digikey boards that requires the firmware update to be usable from my mac.
Board info : MicroBoot Kernel Version is: 1.05 Bootloader Version is: 1.09 Application Version is: 0.00
no mbed.htm file comes up when in bootloader mode. Nothing appears connected to the computer when plugged in ordinarily
Here is what I'm trying, and the results :
1 - Hold reset and plug device into Win 7 computer - D4 LED does flash 2 - Open up BOOTLOADER drive that appears 3 - move in BOOTUPDATEAPP_Pemicro_v111.SDA to the bootloader drive's root, and wait for file to have moved 4 - Unplug board from comp, plug it back in 5 - After this I wait for up to a few minutes, but the green D4 LED does not blink at me and the bootload drive never shows up.
Other info : 1 - The board does not show up on my computer at all as a drive unless it is bootloader mode. I can't find it in devices 2 - LASTSTAT file says "Ready." when opened 3- BOOTUPDATEAPP_Pemicro_v111.SDA is not visible when re-opening in Bootloader mode 4 - PEdrivers should be installed (I went through the process and the folder shows up) 5 - The RGB LED on the board runs through a default program of a few colors and then slowly changes colors
What I may have broken : It is posible that I messed something up when first starting out since I did not initially see the note about Mac incompatibility with older firmware. So when I first got it, I plugged the board into my mac, and tried loading a generic test program over to the board. Perhaps that messed something up?
I recognize that perhaps I have just bricked the board, and it is no longer usable- in that case, is there a source to get a board with the most up to date firmware already on it?

The file you mention is the bootloader update, but it is not the mbed firmware. (Still it should show up as mass storage device, which is a bit weird).
The mbed firmware is linked on the handbook page you made this question: http://developer.mbed.org/media/uploads/sam_grove/20140530_k20dx128_kl25z_if_opensda.s19.zip. Do the same thing, copy that file to the bootloader drive, and it should install mbed firmware which does run on your mac.
