How to restore FT2232 EEPROM back to factory settings?



Hi Everyone,

Just accidentally flashed the EEPROM attached to the FT2232 device on the Arty. The board is dead without the USB connection. Been using for 2 months without issues until today.

In Vivado it is showing:

 "ERROR: [Labtoolstcl 44-469] There is no current hw_target.". 

when trying to Auto Connect with the target in Hardware Manager.

Within FT_Prog (FTDI's flash tool), the registers (e.g. serial number, vendor ID, D2XX/VCP driver ...) can all be read and modified. How can it be restored back to Digilent factory setting? Is there an FT_Prog template that we can use?

Could you send me the instructions too?  (and sorry for double posting, I'd not seen this thread.  I was pointed to the other one by someone else).

Someone has reprogrammed our prom with stuff for a MicroSemi programmer.

Hi @Sundance_Chris,

To confirm from your other post, you are looking for instructions on reprogramming the JTAG SMT1?


@JColvin That corect.

We have a "XMOD EEPROM" from Trenz that someone has reprogrammed with FlashPro 5 ID content.  Don't ask me why.

They pointed us to you sayng:



you can download a recovery tool there: (you need google login)


select SMT1 and reflash, this should recover the license back to XMOD
