    I think you must provide more details. In order to get help. Do you have any information on your MCU board

    well im trying to flash an esc with bl-heli code. they say you need a usb toolstick from silabs. but i have a reson to belive this is just for convenience. c2ck c2d and ground on the esc are the pins i need.. so do i need the toolstick or can i wire it up with an old printer cable like jtagging an xbox360?

    You are talking in codes. That have no meaning unless for those sitting with you at your workbench

    You need to define what you are doing. Don't give us text message hints. Use full words.

    We have no Idea what an "esc" may be, nor what processor is sitting inside it.
