Has anyone been able to build the eZ-FET firmware from the source files provided here: http://www.ti.com/tool/MSPDS?
I've started a 30-day trial of the most recent version of IAR and have somewhat patched up the projects (no code changes, mainly adjusting settings,etc) to get them to compile and run the srec batch file after building. However, after this I'm left with just a bunch of individual txt files and not one, ready-to-program file.
I've used srec to join all of these files into one along with the TI-provided BSL found here: http://software-dl.ti.com/msp430/msp430_public_sw/mcu/msp430/MSP430_ezFETLite/latest/exports/eZ-FET_lite_Release_Package_rev_1_10_20130712.zip
I've also been having issues compiling the BSL, that's why I've used the already-compiled one from TI.
Once I flash this whole thing to an MSP430F5528, this shows up on Windows device manager as a debug probe as expected. I then try to use MSP Flasher to access a target device: MSP Flasher complains that the debug probe firmware is corrupted and immediately goes into "fixing" it. After this it says that the debug probe firmware is outdated and asks if I want to upgrade it. I say "no" and then it errors out with an error 16 when it tries to access the target.
If I allow MSP Flasher to update the firmware by itself I can access other targets with the MSP430F5528 hardware.
My end goal is to possibly modify this firmware to use 4-wire JTAG in order to create a custom probe for the MSP430F2619S-HT.
Any help? I've kept the post somewhat high-level in order to make it an easier read.
