To enable it to flash using SD card, you need to shift the JP4 jumper to the right as shown below.
After flashing completed, power off the control board and shift the JP4 jumper back to the original position.
2. Double boards such as model CRT0302.
To enable it to flash using SD card, you need to shortcircuit the AB as shown in the picture below.
3. Boards without SD card slot such as model CRT0301
It doesn't support SD card flashing.
Possible solutions to solve the flashing failure
1. Reformat the TF and make sure you've copied the correct firmware.
2. Press the TF softly to ensure it's well attached.
3. Dust and clean the TF.
4. Try with another good known TF.
