    I'm following a schematic and building a circuit involving an STM32F205 micro. I've never used any micros other than 8-bit Atmel AVR so I really only have one programming method in my toolbox. I didn't think the flashing of the micro part was going to get me hung up, but my Google-fu skills aren't up to par, I guess, and I've not been able to ascertain (even at a general level) what is needed for flashing firmware to this chip.

    Unfortunately the datasheet appears to be written in Greek.

    My goal is to be able to update the firmware via USB bootloader but where I'm stuck now is where to get said bootloader (if one exists that's freely distributable) and how to get it on the chip.

    Any help for this noob is appreciated. Thanks.

    Are you serious or is this just an expression for "I don't understand the datasheet".
    Can you provide a link to the datasheet that you think has the information that you need, and a link to the datasheet for the actual part you are interested in.

    Have you read this yet?

    That's exactly what I was looking for, thank you! I'm not sure why I couldn't find that through my searching.
