I have a $4 TI Launchpad with a MSP430 processor.
The 2553 is a little bit too new for mspdebug however.
(It has a Forth flashed into it. See http://www.4e4th.eu.)
Anyway I discovered that I could not use mspdebug to reflash the
program unless I cheat by telling mspdebug that it is another
So (on a Ubuntu 10.04.4) I can reflash by
sudo mspdebug --fet-force-id MSP430FG4618 rf2500
and then interactively:
There is no action needed to tell mspdebug where to find the device.
Also modem-manager (contrary to messages) doesn't mess anything up.
