@Implicit; could it be your bootloader is corrupt? When using STM Flash loader you'll have to short the sbl pins. See my thread over at OP forum for flashing CF via STM. Just use the latest binaries and connect via USB instead of the cc3d mainport in that procedure. Be advised; timing is crucial for...

Hi, there's an unofficial Jenkins server @ http://ci.esav.dy.fi/job/Cleanflight/.
Maybe you can find a version that works for older revision board there, please report if you have.

Do you have a buzzer on FC board? Maybe the magnet in that causes issues?
I assume you've checked all the solder points? Does anything change with FC connected or not?
Does the board actually get enough voltage (either via serial or directly from BEC)?
