no way to get a recompiled firstboot and eboot running !!

Tue Oct 14, 2008 10:59 am

Dear all,

I am using an AT91SAM9260-EK eval board.

I am struggling to get something working with visual studio + windows embedded 6.0 platform.
I am using BSP evaluation source code to build it:

- rebuilding BSP is ok and it will run on board
but building firstboot or eboot is another story !!

# firstboot can be generated but it does not start or run
and is also not binary equivalent to the demo bootstrap given by Adeneo :(

I have been told to set the option of compile flags in the IDE
"BOOT_ON_NANDFLASH_CS3" or "BOOT_ON_SPIDATAFLASH_CS0" ..

but I have no selectable option in IDE Third Party\AT91SAM9260EK\Ethernet bootloader\ ??

So I added it in related files so that it does generate a firstboot.nb0
binary file look of but nothing works !!!

# if trying to build eboot from NandFlashEboot dir under \WINCE600\PLATFORM\AT91SAM9260EK\SRC\BOOTLOADER\NandFlashEboot

It gives not generated files !!

I need to regenerate eboot to make it work on my other board also based on at91sam9260


Any idea would be really welcome !

Hello again,

I found out that the problem for file generation is same that I had with firstboot

This is caused by
SKIPBUILD=1
Because when building in command line switch are not set I don't see exactly why
but if you remove this it will build eboot.nb0 and this code works !

still have th eproblem with firstboot..
