STM32F4 chip erase through DFU

Hi,

I have a board based on the STM32F429ZIT6, same as on the STM32F429I-Discovery. The board is wired so that the MCU can be reprogrammed via USB DFU. There is no ST-Link since this is a custom prototype board.

While playing with the "DfuSe Demonstration" tool, aka. "DfuSe Demo (v3.0.3)", I accidently programmed the option byte containing the SPRMOD bit to 0xFF, enabling by mistake the "Proprietary code readout protection (PCROP)" feature of the MCU.

If I understand correctly, the only way to disable PCROP is to perform a full chip erase. I found how to do that on a discovery board using the ST-Link utility, but I cannot use that tool with my custom board. And I can't find how to do that with the DfuSe Demo tool. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Regards,

Doub.
