And the hash from the exact commit we pulled from:
f4d21213d7ce37d7ed7338fad0f9a94a96cec191
To apply the patch, just write the following commands:
`git clone https://github.com/bitcraze/crazyflie-firmware.git`<br>
`cd crazyflie-firmware`<br>
`git submodule init && git submodule update`<br>
`git checkout f4d21213d7ce37d7ed7338fad0f9a94a96cec191`<br>
`git apply
<folder_to_D-FaLL-System_repository/crazyflie_firmware/firmware_modifications.patch>`<br>
Now the repository is ready to compile. To do it, first make sure that you have
installed the toolchain. To install it:
`sudo add-apt-repository ppa:team-gcc-arm-embedded/ppa`<br>
`sudo apt-get update`<br>
`sudo apt-get install libnewlib-arm-none-eabi`<br>
Then, in the `crazyflie-firmware` folder where you applied the patch, do:<br>
`make PLATFORM=CF2`
If everything is successful, you will see something like this:<br>

## Firmware and channel
The firmware of a crazyflie is updated by the teacher. Additionally, the teacher can set the channel of the crazyflies to prevent interference.<br>
### Firmware
See https://wiki.bitcraze.io/doc:crazyflie:client:pycfclient:index#firmware_upgrade for instructions on changing the firmware with the Crazyflie client. If you have installed it properly as described in the installation section, it can be started in a terminal by typing `cfclient`.
See
https://wiki.bitcraze.io/doc:crazyflie:client:pycfclient:index#firmware_upgrade
for instructions on changing the firmware with the Crazyflie client. If you have
installed it properly as described in the installation section, it can be
started in a terminal by typing `cfclient`.<br><br>
Basically, the steps to flash the crazyflie are:<br><br>
1. Start `cfclient`<br>
2. Go to Connect->Bootloader<br>
3. Press the ON/OFF button in the Crazyflie for 3 seconds to enter bootloader
mode (two blue leds will start blinking)<br>
4. In cfclient, press `Initiate bootloader cold boot`<br>
5. Once connected to the bootloader, select the file we want to upload
(typically, cf2.bin) and press `Program`<br>
6. Wait until it's done and reset the Crazyflie<br><br>
### Channel changing
This is also described on the page linked above. Use the following format: 0/__xx__/2M where __xx__ stands for the radio channel.<br>
The crazyflie has to be restared for the changes to take effect.<br>
