I am programming a hex file generated by cymcuelftool using J-Link and after it finishes, it shows

ERROR: Could not download file.

The programming seemed to be successful because I can verify it later and it passes.  Does anyone know why there is the error after programming?

Hi,

I checked for this issue.

I think this error comes because the hex has data at address 0x9030 0000 for PSoC6.

This needs to be removed from file.

Hi,

Can you please give us the log (screenshot) that appears while trying to program using JLINK.

I will suggest you to  also create a Forum thread at Segger's forum for JLINK, in order to take their perspective  on this  error message.

Thanks,

This is the log:

My app runs and verify passes using PSoC Programmer.
