Re: Bad Flash on my Firebee

Anyone ever use debug for this purpose and where to find the program? Gamer, you really should start to read carefully, first the public available informations, and also what a lot of teammembers already wrote to you in many many mails/PMs etc. 1.) dBug is at Didiers website. You can find the link ...

Re: Bad Flash on my Firebee

Well now I have the BDM Multi-link device and I found an old XP laptop that I can run Cf Flasher so I can re-flash the firebee. However the XP laptop does not have a AC adapter, so I ordered one and am waiting for that. I also talked with Didier and he says he uses debug to flash the FB using a PC. ...

Re: Bad Flash on my Firebee

Here is basically what happened. I went under EmuTOS (with Mint booted), ran the CF version of the Flasher program, loaded in the FPGA s19 file and ran the flasher. It then crashed. So that screwed up the Rom Flash chip. I can only say if I cannot recover from this and the Firebee is bricked, then ...

Re: Bad Flash on my Firebee

Okay. I am going to get the Multilink BDM/Jtag cable from P&E. I have CF Flasher 3.1 all setup on the PC. One question. In the CF Flasher there is a space that needs to be filled with the Target. Would I choose the Coldfire-PC?

Re: Bad Flash on my Firebee

Looks like flashing FB is hair raising.... worst than for my CT63 ?? No, it's nearly the same thing. And it usually just works (I've done this like several hundred times successfully). Nobody knows what gamer did wrong and he doesn't tell. You replace essential software on the board. If you manage ...

Re: CF setup

The card is toast as far as I can tell. Gparted wont access it at all. The replacement card was working but has failed after half an hour. I need to check it tomorrow but I think my firebee may be eating cf cards or I’m just having bad luck. There is a program on the PC that works for me called Min...

Re: Bad Flash on my Firebee

Ok, I see now. I went to the P&E website and saw the hardware. They connect to the PC via USB and have various ports to connect to a target device. I saw they offered 3 levels of hardware. Which one do you have? None of those that are still available. I think they called it "Cable CF"...

Okay, so what hardware and software was used to flash the Firebee? I don't know what others use, but I have a P&E BDM flasher that connects to the parallel port of my PC and several TBLCF' s for my ColdFire machines (so I can leave them plugged to avoid stress to the connectors). Software: http...

The M68HC08 used might be hard to come by already, however. Marked obsolete at many vendors if I remember right. Oh, I see. Then the JTAG cable would only ...

But you have to be very carefull. If something go wrong while you flash firmware you can stay without wor...

Well it seems I cannot just copy files to the EXT2 partition and un-tar on the linux desktop. I can only do it under ROOT, so I have to use a root console to accomplish this.

The bzip from your Falcon can be used by renaming it to bzip.ttp. The executable from the /bin folders are all TOS programs without extensions. In the UI world they are called console programs, we normally call then TOS programs. That little fact I completely forgot. Thank you for reminding me. I b...
