Installing J-Link

Navigate to the Seger downloads page and install the version of the J-Link Software and Documentation Pack for your operating system:

Grab a Bootloader

You'll also want to download a compiled bootloader binary (.bin file) for the board you're recovering. These can be found on the Adafruit/uf2-samdx1 repository:

(Optional) Grab the Latest CircuitPython UF2

If you want to install CircuitPython onto the UF2 bootloader, you'll need a board-specific .uf2 file. Click here to find the latest build:

Click the file corresponding to the CircuitPython board you're recovering. Check the two letter code for your language: english, espagnol, french, filipino (tagalog) - we'll be using the english build but instructions are the same for other languages.

When the UF2 finishes downloading, move the file to your Desktop

We'll leave this file alone and come back to it when we're ready to load CircuitPython onto our board's boot drive.
