With a GUI or just doing the job of moving bits from the development
machine to the board?
I prefer command line w/o GUI.
I already found "BSD SAM-BA"
(http://sourceforge.net/projects/bsd-samba/) and SAM7_PGM
(http://www.pjrc.com/arm/sam7_pgm/) — both seem to be
unmaintained since some years. What do the other emdebian
JTAG with Xilinx, OpenOCD or custom shell scripting, etc .
Thanks, I will look into those.
Proprietary kernel drivers are not necessary, right?
Depending on the setup, bootloader routines can be used for some
operations of this kind too.
Yes, Das U-Boot can do this, but IIRC SAM-BA is much faster
and you have to get Das U-Boot into the flash somehow.
