After getting u-boot fully debuggable it is finally time to use such powerful tool and deep dive in U-boot to learn how it is working. Looking ahead here is diagram providing U-boot initialization sequence starting from first step in reset function and finishing with cli_loop checking for input command typed by user through long list

In previous chapter we got U-boot debuggable. Partially debuggable as we turned out. The thing we missed is relocation. The workaround provided in that document is simple enough but not might be comfortable. Here suggested workaround adopted to NetSoM to get fully functional u-boot debugging procedure. Command line mode debugging Star

In previous two chapters: 1 and 2 we used Eclipse IDE to debug Embedded Linux user layer application. In that post we will use Eclipse as IDE to debug U-boot using usb debugger J-Link connected to target hardware using JTAG interface. Hardware setup First we have to setup hardware: connect J-Link to target hardware using […]
