I’m getting more and more confident in my new Panda and would like to start working on easing deployment for production usage.
I have googled quite a bit, but I haven’t been able to tell if it is possible to deploy an application without making a custom firmware?
From the USBizi manual I gathered that the GHI Bootloader can load managed code, but from my understanding this is not the output format of my VS compilation. Therefore I cannot modify the MAC address in this during deployment.
I am using the Ethernet Shield which means I need to put in a MAC address, and thus my deployment scenario includes that I need to compile the .NET MF application.
Therefore, what I would like to achieve is a utility which can
- Plug in MAC address to my C# source code
- Compile the .NET MF application
- Deploy the application
How would you go about this? What is the best practice?
Perhaps I could also include an initial step for updating the device to GHI’s latest firmware version.
