Blackmagic not recognized



I’ve purchased a Blackmagic V2 probe. Then I signed up for a Professional Plus membership…

Tried to follow this instructions:

Gets the following error.
Error: Unknown debug tool blackmagic. Please use one of esp-prog, ftdi, iot-bus-jtag, jlink, minimodule, olimex-arm-usb-ocd, olimex-arm-usb-ocd-h, olimex-arm-usb-tiny-h, olimex-jtag-tiny, tumpa or custom

Feels that something basic is wrong here …

Please help.


What board are you debugging?


ESP32-DEVKITC-VB when I purchased it.

In platform.ino I’ve added
board = esp-wrover-kit

Works well with serial debug.

#4 is not registered to be able to debug ESP32 chips. is an example of somone not being able to get the BMP working with the ESP32.


aghhhh then I’ve bee reading but not understanding.

Can you recommend a debugger, working with PlatformIO and ESP32, to use that can be purchased in Europe. ???


Okay, I just ordered ESP-PROG from China, paid a little extra for shipping, but…
Is there a way to close this issue ?


I’d recommend any of the adapters listed here: ESP-PROG is one of them.
