Hi,
I'm a newbie.

I'm trying to program external flash on the STR710-EVAL board but I'm not successful.

I typically get error like:
Error: cfi.c:226 cfi_intel_wait_status_busy(): Block Erase Suspended
Error: cfi.c:214 cfi_intel_wait_status_busy(): status register: 0xff
Error: cfi.c:216 cfi_intel_wait_status_busy(): Block Lock-Bit Detected, Operat

71xboot-R10.bin to flash bank 0 at offset 0x00000000
Info: configuration.c:50 configuration_output_handler(): flash program error

Do anyone have a script that works for my setup or know what the problem might be?

The memory is of type M28W320CB

Hello Andreas,

the CFI code is only tested with Intel devices. While this ST flash claims to be Intel compatible, there might be differences that the current code doesn't know about.

Could you please send me a complete log (run with -d -l <logfile>) to Dominic.Rath <at> gmx.de?

Regards,

Dominic

Hello Andreas,

I've received your log, thanks.

One more question:
Which version of the OpenOCD did you use? There were some changes to the CFI code, and I want to make sure you got the latest code.

Regards,

Dominic

I use the following version:

openocd-2006re115

Is this ok.

Ok, that's bad, because I've merged the CFI changes in revision 116 :)

Do you think you're able to compile the OpenOCD binary yourself? You're going to need a Cygwin installation with the GNU autotools and GCC. If this is too much trouble for you I can compile a binary for you later today (have to launch Windows in a VMware first, and that puts some burden on my system).

Regards,

Dominic

I'm sorry I don't have cygwin on my computer I'd love to have the 116 release.

I would appriciate if you did it form me. I will try to do it, but I imagine that it will fail.

Hi Dominic,

thank you very much for your help. I tried building it in Cygwin but I wasn't successful.

However the link you posted doesn't work. :cry:

Hi Dominic,

I was able to download the file and run it, however it didn't work. :cry:
I have sent you a log file. Can you see if there is something wrong with my configuration files. :?
