MSP430 Bootloader

Recommended Posts

Hi All !

I am new in this forum so firstly I would like to say Hello :)

 

About half year a go I was looking for MSP430 Bootloader for value line like MSP340G2553, unfortunately I was not able to find anything.

Now when I entered this forum I see that there ware some works around this topic.

 

Nevertheless I would like to share with you my MSP430 Bootloader which I was able to do from scratch using TI datasheets.

It is not fully tested yet, but with simple "Hello world " program it works.

 

Detailed description and svn repository you can find on my WIKI here:

Please feel free to test it and any comments are welcome. 

You can post here or add comments on my WIKI (after registration)

Hi Daniel,

Thanks for doing this and for all the documentation you did in your wiki.

In your memory diagram you show 512 byte Information memory, but it is from addresses 0x01000 to 0x010FF, only 256 bytes. It has been a while since I looked at information memory in the '2553 but I remember it being 4 * 64 bytes.

Best regards, Bob

You'll need a Subversion (SVN) client to download. If you're more used to Git then "svn co" is equivalent to "git clone"

Yes I have Svn installed. Svn works fine. It is the userid and password that seem to be the issue. I tried without one and then got prompted. I used the one from the page and when that didn't work I posed my original question. So what is the correct userid and password?

Yes you are totally right, my mistake. In text I have written correctly but in image was error. Now it is fixed.

 

How you you download this? It failed when I tried:

$ svn --username anonymous --password svn_read co https://svn.duchna.pl/msp430_bootloader

-rick

 

Hi rick. The issue is that you are using user name: 'anonymous', but the user name is same as password: 'svn_read'.

Therefore the correct command to download it is:

 

$ svn --username svn_read --password svn_read co https://svn.duchna.pl/msp430_bootloader

 

BTW, not all, but some G2 series chips (2x53, 2x44, and 2x55) do have BSL. See slau319.

 

This is right, but my Idea was to be totally independent on any build in functions or features

 

UPDATE:

I have fixed 3 bugs I found myself.

The new updated version 1.1 is available and now should be fully working and easy to use.
