Angus describes on his blog how he used the Bus Blaster to recover a bricked CC3D board:

A few months ago I went to upgrade my OpenPilot CC3D board an something went amiss and I ended up trashing the bootloader. I didn’t have a SWD dongle to reprogram it with so its been collecting dust. I just purchased a v3 bus blaster for a different project I’m working on and it has a SWD firmware so I thought I’d try and recover the CC3D. Below are the steps I used.

More details at Angus Ainslie’s blog.

The Bus Blaster is a high-speed JTAG debugger for ARM processors, FPGAs, CPLDs, flash, and more. You can get a Bus Blaster v3 for $34.95 at Seeed.
