set notification for 0x0…. characteristics
and and send zip file to …. this char.
something like this ,it would be really helpfull

Solution

Entering the bootloader

To enter the bootloader using the Nordic Buttonless DFU you need to write to a characteristic of the Buttonless Secure DFU Service which uses the 16-bit UUID 0xFE59. The actual characteristic depends on your settings. The Buttonless DFU can be used with or without bonds and would show a different characteristic for either one. Take a look at the documentation for more information about that.

The protocol to enter the bootloader is super simple:

enter image description here

To enter the bootloader, you need to send 0x01 to the characteristic. You will receive a response telling you the result of the operation. The message sequence diagram shows a successful response which is made of

0x20 -> defines this message as response
0x01 -> the command you requested (enter bootloader)
0x01 -> Success

Take a look the the documentation for more response codes.

Sending the firmware update

There is a very detailed page about the DFU protocol including a part especially about using BLE. It includes a message sequence chart describing the actual protocol where you can easily see in which order your messages need to be sent and to which characteristic.
