    I have bought a JLink EDU mini and have tried to make it work with the ESP32 Wroom module for the last few days  to no avail.

    When trying to connect to the chip via openocd, I get the following error:

    The same error has been reported on the ESP forums, but does not seem to have been resolved [link].

    While it looks like a USB error, I was able to use the debug probe with an arm microcontroller.

    It looks like JTAG debugging is supported with the Jlink EDU, but not with the Jlink EDU mini, although they are reported to support the same feature set on Segger’s website.

    Has anyone successfully made this kind of setup work?

    Hi,

    It does look like some sort of a low-level communication issue between OpenOCD and the JTAG probe. If others have reproduced the same problem outside VisualGDB, it may indicate that the Espressif’s OpenOCD port is simply not compatible with this version of J-Link.

    Our best advice would be to try one of the debug probes that is fully supported (e.g. Olimex ARM-USB-OCD-H or any other one based on the FT2232 chip). Also if Espressif fixes the issue in the future in their github repository, please feel to let us know and we will be happy to release an updated binary package with the fix.
