    CM1 Flashing Guide Pic
    These are the steps I used to successfully flash the Cairnsmore1 FPGA:

    Download -> Controller & Bitstream

      Flashing the Controller

    1. Turn Switch 6 off
    2. Connect the jtag (Xilinx DLC9G) to the controller jtag port
    3. Power up the fpga
    4. Start Impact “configure device using boundary-scan (JTAG)” click OK
    5. Assign Configuration file “hashvoodoo_controller_25.bit
    6. Right Click “Program Flash and Load FPGA”
    7. Power Off CM1
    — if you are receiving an error when programing the flash, power off CM1, turn switch 3 off & flash again.

      Flashing the FPGA Array

    1. Turn Switch 6 on and turn Switch 3 off
    2. Connect the jtag (Xilinx DLC9G) to the fpga array jtag port
    3. Power up fpga
    4. Start New Project in Impact “configure device using boundary-scan (JTAG)” click OK
    5. Assign Configuration file “CM1-hv-v04a-175MHz-ucf-150-fmax-161.bit
    6. Attach SPI/BPI Prom click YES select “CM1-hv-v04a-175MHz-ucf-150-fmax-161.mcs” select [SPI PROM] [M25P128] Data width: 1 <–Repeat for all four fpga’s
    7. Device Programming Properties: Click “OK”
    8. Right Click on “Flash” and select “Program” <— repeat for all four fpga’s
    9. Power off CM1 and turn Switch 3 on

    Now you can power cycle the fpga and the Blake bitstream will still be there.

    All other support for the Cairnsmore1

    I was able to figure this out by reading trough the post’s on Bitcointalk

    Thanks to kramble and BlueDragon747 for making this work!
