JTAG for Panda

If I understand this correctly [url]http://www.tinyclr.com/forum/2/1809[/url] the JTAG on Panda is disabled somehow, and unlocking by software is possible but not available yet. Any news on this?

If it takes a long I can order another Panda with blank chip. Either way, what kind of programmer I need? Is this [url]http://www.sparkfun.com/products/8278[/url] sufficient?

And, is the Panda really the only FEZ board with JTAG interface available?

I think that the NETMF thing is awesome, but I’d also like to experiment with that FEZOpen thing.

If you are going to connect JTAG and run your own firmware then it will be very difficult for us to provide support. Users that do that already know how to use JTAG.

FEZopen is an in-progress work pending community contributions, maybe you can help? See this http://www.tinyclr.com/forum/17/2354/

I appreciate that you cannot provide much support if I’ll fool around with some custom firmware. I’m used to that with Arduino’s… :wink:

I think I’ll figure out how to use JTAG when I got one. I just have not used JTAG before, for AVR’s I have just a programmer. So, if they say “can be used with any ARM devices for programming and debugging (which are currently supported by openOCD)” it will work on Panda, right?

Well, I searched about the OpenOCD and LPC2387 seems to be supported so I suppose it will.

But on the other thread you linked, you said [quote]Once FEZopen project is in a usable stage (beta) then we can make the erasing feature easily available to everyone. [/quote]

Ok. I can understand that.

I’ll see if I can contribute, seems unlikely at the moment though.

Take a look at http://www.tinyclr.com/forum/17/1425/ shows the openocd commands and config file…

Looks interesting.
