Problem with fds: Flash read, write, delete calling that function using android phone.

Hello to all,

I am using nRF52832 DK with sd132, v6.0.0 and sdk 15.0.0, segger embedded studio. We want to achieve change application timer time (APP_TIMER_TICKS(update_time)) using android phone. We have a sensor devices it will wake up as per app timer time defined, we want to change this wake up time using Noridc UART tool box app. For that we are using fds example as referred in given sdk 15.0 and other nRF5-flash-storage-examples .

We are able to flash write read and delete but problem is:

  1.  When i call fds_test_find_and_delete(), fds_test_write(), fds_read() whenever received command from nordic UART app it not able to read and write at this time.
  2. I want to change update_time variable of app timer ticks using android phone and store this time in flash. Whenever want to user need to change this time first delete previous and update latest send time. 
  3. Will you please provide me program snippet for How i call flash fds API through android phone and store received time in that app_timer ticks. Confused regarding this.

I am currently using this following functions for FDS read, write, and delete:

static ret_code_t fds_test_write(void)
{
		
    //static uint32_t const m_deadbeef[2] = {0xDEADBEEF,0xBAADF00D};
    static uint8_t const m_deadbeef[1] = {0x14};
//    memcpy(m_deadbeef, write_data, sizeof(m_deadbeef));
    fds_record_t        record;
    fds_record_desc_t   record_desc;

    // Set up data.
    
    // Set up record.
    record.file_id        = FILE_ID_FDS_TEST;
    record.key            = REC_KEY_FDS_TEST;
    record.data.p_data    = &m_deadbeef;
    //record.data.length_words   = sizeof(m_deadbeef)/sizeof(uint32_t);
    record.data.length_words   = sizeof(m_deadbeef)/sizeof(uint8_t);
                    
    ret_code_t ret = fds_record_write(&record_desc, &record);
    if (ret != FDS_SUCCESS)
    {
                    return ret;
    }
     NRF_LOG_INFO("Writing Record ID = %d \r\n",record_desc.record_id);
    return NRF_SUCCESS;
}

static ret_code_t fds_read(void)

    //uint32_t *data;
    uint8_t *data;
    uint32_t err_code;
    
    NRF_LOG_INFO("Start searching... \r\n");
    // Loop until all records with the given key and file ID have been found.
    while (fds_record_find(FILE_ID_FDS_TEST, REC_KEY_FDS_TEST, &record_desc, &ftok) == FDS_SUCCESS)
    {
                    err_code = fds_record_open(&record_desc, &flash_record);
                    if ( err_code != FDS_SUCCESS)
                    {

                    NRF_LOG_INFO("Data = ");
                    //data = (uint32_t *) flash_record.p_data;
                    data = (uint8_t *) flash_record.p_data;
                    for (uint8_t i=0;i<flash_record.p_header->length_words;i++)

                    // Access the record through the flash_record structure.
                    // Close the record when done.
                    err_code = fds_record_close(&record_desc);
                    if (err_code != FDS_SUCCESS)
                    {
                            return err_code;	
                    }
    }
    return NRF_SUCCESS;

  • You cannot call the fds API through an android phone!

    What you will need to do is to devise some sort of command that your app will send to instruct your nRF code to update the parameters, and store in Flash

    please provide me program snippet for How i call flash fds

    That is exactly what the example project does - but it does it for an interactive human user at a terminal.

    So you just need to get rid of the interactive CLI stuff, and implement a command over the BLE link ...

  • Thanks for fast response,

    So you just need to get rid of the interactive CLI stuff, and implement a command over the BLE link ...

    But as you said above how i can implement CLI stuff over BLE link will you please provide me tutorial or example.

    If i call flash write function like this is it have any restriction:

    When Nordic UART tool box connected to device then we send 3 commnd-->

    static void nus_data_handler(ble_nus_evt_t * p_evt)
    {
    
    if (p_evt->type == BLE_NUS_EVT_RX_DATA)
    {
    uint32_t err_code;
    NRF_LOG_INFO("nus_data_handler call");
    // send_to_central();
    NRF_LOG_DEBUG("Received data from BLE NUS. Writing data on UART.");
    NRF_LOG_HEXDUMP_DEBUG(p_evt->params.rx_data.p_data, p_evt->params.rx_data.length);
    
    for (uint32_t i = 0; i < p_evt->params.rx_data.length; i++)
    {
    do
    {
    err_code = app_uart_put(p_evt->params.rx_data.p_data[i]);
    if(p_evt->params.rx_data.p_data[i] == '3')
    {
    NRF_LOG_INFO("Start flashing....");
    err_code = fds_test_find_and_delete();
    APP_ERROR_CHECK(err_code);
    nrf_delay_ms(1000);
    fds_test_write();
    nrf_delay_ms(1000);
    // fds_read();
    break;
    }

    Thanks,
