Very useful description of the process - the demo works fine. - but none of the mbed examples (not even blink) works and last time (around November) they all worked fine, I even modified some examples and loaded successfully back then. Now it's all dead (at least loading the original demo I can confirm there is nothing wrong with the target. Thanks, Aurelian

2. Open the ST-Link Utitlity program. 3. Select "Add External Loader" from the "External Loader" menu. Select the N25Q128A_STM32F746G_DISCO device. Make sure that this is the only device selected.

Now I see that STM32Cube_FW_F7_V1.14.0 version only available for download. Anyone know how to get older version of STM32Cube_FW_F7_V1.1.0 ?

I want to flash factory preloaded STM32746G-DISCO_Demo_V1.0.1.hex.

I observed that STM32746G-DISCO_Demo_V1.5.0.hex is not stable

Downloaded the hex from https://github.com/RadMie/STM32F7DiscoveryBase/tree/master/Projects/STM32746G-Discovery/Demonstration and reloaded... using STlink. Works for me.
