Problem after burning efuses

Postby squonk11 » Thu Aug 20, 2020 1:49 pm

In my project I want to use the efuses in BLK3 for storing a custom MAC address and a serial number. In a first step I burned the custom MAC into BLK3. After this step everything was working as expected.
Next I burned a new serial number into BLK3 bits 192 to 255. After this step I am not able to download a new firmware. I get the following error message:

Flash voltage (VDD_SDIO) set to 3.3V by efuse.
SW download to another ESP32 board (without burnt serial number) still works. So, it can not be a general issue but an issue dedicated to the board with burnt serial number only - and the only difference between these boards it the burnt serial number only.
Do you have a hint for me how to solve the problem?

Edit:
I used the following command to burn the fuses:

Code: Select all

espefuse.py -p COM33 burn_block_data --offset 24 --force-write-always BLK3 serno.bin
In a first step I tried to burn the serial number without the option "--force-write-always". But here I received the error message:

Code: Select all

A fatal error occurred: Efuse block already has values written.
That is why I then used the option "--force-write-always" in the next step.

now I used another ESP32 board for burning the efuses. This time it seems to work. So probably I damaged the previous board somehow?
