[beagleboard] Starterware

I would ping TI on the e2e forums. But, don’t hold your breath!

If I am not mistaken Starterware is built with CCS5 and the only way to get this free is to buy a JTAG($79) and use it with CCS. This means adding the JTAG connector on the bone
I will let you know how this goes when my parts arrive this week

Any news on this front? I am interesting sys/bios (TI RTOS) or starterware. I already have CCSv5 and a jtag… just waiting on the connector for adding JTAG to my bbb.

regards,
chris

I have not heard a word.

I recently downloaded starterware it said it supports the Black and that may mean they have a gel file as well

The connector is described on Circuitco page requires some soldering and snipping and resistors.

I decided to just use JTAG over USB that FDTI provides on the BB white

I would ask if anyone actually got this working I have no plan to buy the black at this time

Black just requires adding the connector. No resistor removal or addition.

Hi all,

Just to make a recap, BBB site remands to the starterware, so it seems to be supported but the documentation speaks only about the beaglebone.

Is it possible to use the Starterware on a BBB without a jtag?

The DDR3 is different and the PMIC is different. I don’t know if it has been updated or not. I am not aware of it being updated. So, having access to the GEL file before running it, would tend to say you need JTAG.
