Unable to upload arduino sketches due to damaged usb port on OpenCR board

I have an openCR board I am using for a project but unfortunately, the usb port has become damaged to the point I can no longer repair it. Is there another way for me to be able to upload my Arduino sketch into the board?

When I use the Tx/Rx pins, I am able to communicate with my Raspberry Waffle Pi board and the turtlebot3 wheels respond. My major challenge is getting the OpenCR board to receive sketch uploads.

Unfortunately, you have to repair your controller if it’s really damaged.

There is no alternative port rather than USB to upload code.

  • Does the USB port are detected by your device manager? (In linux, it’s /dev/ttyACM#)

If it’s detected, manually enter bootloader and try again. See Boot Sequence

The usb port is not being detected anymore, i have repaired it personally one too many times.
