kind of hardware tools to you have available? Do you have
access to an Oscope?
Not usually, but I might be able to get access to one from time to time.
What can I do/check if I have one?
You can watch the write line on the chip and see if its getting
asserted. Then you know for sure if its flash chip or chipset.
Say I manage to flash
(that's the only ims image <= 256K, so I'll have to use it as my chips are
256K, is that correct?), connect a serial cable on ttyS0 (ttyS1?),
The IMS config is setup for a 29f040b which is a 512k part. Did you
change the rom size in the config file? But yes your rom size needs
to match your chips.
115200 Baud, 8N1. Should I be able to get some debug
output with the
current code in svn?
Yes you will get some boot messages and it will try to dump the spd contents.
