[SOLVED] Xbee S2 bricked, how can i unbrick it?

0 votes
Hi everybody!! I have a problem with my Xbee module (i have very probably bricked it). I have tried many solutions using the x-ctu software but didn't worked. So i decided to enter in bootloader mode to force the flash of firmware but i wasn't able to do that because when i go to the terminal window of x-ctu it show me a point. what does that point mean? Is my module recoverable or i have to buy a new one? Thanks for answer!!

I solved it using an USB Shield for Xbee module directly attached at my PC. I wasn't able to rewrite the firmware of the module on my arduino because the arduino proto shield has only four communication pin (5V, GND, TX, RX).It is perfect for communications but not for writing the firmware, you need all twenty pins communication. For the technique I rewrites the module entering in bootloader mode. Hoping it could help for others with the same problem!!
