@cubeberg Hey. Sorry to revive such an ancient thread. I am doing a very similar project to yours using an msp430g2 and was hoping you could answer some questions/ give some updates on progress. I am fiddling with your software, but am unable to get it to do anything on my MSP430g2553. It starts up, then immediately goes to exit.c without doing anything. Any help would be so so appreciated.
