    How to restore BCM20736S to the factory default state (internal EEPROM)?

    KeSo_2153826

      The need is from this:

      We soldered BCM20736S chip on the PCB. The BCM20736S wasn't changed at all after we got it from Broadcom. Then, we downloaded our application code into BCM20736S (as I understand, the code is downloaded into the internal 512k EEPROM) for some testing. Now, we need to do some tests with BCM20736S chip as it condition was as we just got it from Broadcom. We don't have time to get new chips. So we are looking for a way to restore these used BCM20736S to its factory default state in the sense of internal EEPROM.

       

      The chapter "Appendix D: Recovering a Corrupt WICED Smart Tag" in <WICED-Smart-QSG202-R> shows the procedure of executing "proximity-BCM920737TAG_Q32 recover UART=COMx". However, BCM20736S loaded the application code 'proximity' after executing such recovery, which is different from its factory default state.

       

      Does anybody know how to restore these used BCM20736S to its factory default state in the sense of internal EEPROM?
