RealView ICE Update reports a time-out or fails to program a DSTREAM / RealView ICE correctly

Applies to: DSTREAM, RealView ICE and Trace (RVI / RVT)


Sometimes when running "Debug Hardware Update" (formerly known as "RealView ICE Update"), a time-out error is displayed during the reboot phase of the update process.

In most cases this is due to network problems, for example a damaged network cable or a very slow network. This can be overcome by connecting the DSTREAM/RVI unit directly to the PC via a USB connection, or, alternatively, via an Ethernet cross-over cable.

For more information on connecting via an Ethernet cross-over cable, see
