USB and serial download target code

In attachment there is some (example) target code you can download to OMAP3. Using USB or serial bootrom download, it will let blink user LEDs on BeagleBoard. Let us use this as a starting point for a download/flash utility.

Many thanks to Nishanth Menon for debugging this code and Gerald Coley for the LED hint!

P.S.: PC side utilities:

- Serial:

Dirk,

I suggest creating projects on code.google.com to host these little
projects and using the tag 'beagleboard'. Several of them can be
lumped together, but it would be nice to be able to evolve some of
these utilities over time. Other hosting options are fine as well,
but something a little less static than an attachment might be handy.
Then again, it might be just right--just wanting to hear your thoughts.

Regards,
Jason

Yes!

I'm unsure what is better though:

A new code.google.com project or just upload it to

http://code.google.com/p/beagleboard/downloads/list

and then add a link to

http://code.google.com/p/beagleboard/wiki/BeagleSourceCode

?

What do you think?

Btw: Just saw it, many thanks for adding me as a project member :slight_smile:

How about:
An BeagleUtils Project with SVN capability would be ok.. git
interface: better!!! the git interface seems to be gitweb.. not the
git tree with http and git:// access.. every time we put a tag on the
utils.. package the stuff and put it in BeagleSourceCode site.
