This new STM32F4 is a beast.

Tasty. It is more DSP than MCU.

It took me a while to work out how to program this thing, doesn't seem to work under Mac like the old one did, and the serial bootloader protocol seems to have changed. Eventually got it working on windows and managed to upload a hex file. Now I just need to work out how to set chibios up for stm32f4!

It will require at least a specific hal_lld driver and RCC helper driver, I doubt you will be able to use it right now unless you use the ST library for initialization and just use the Kernel.

Luckily the F4 is very close to the F2 so most of the required code is already in place.
