How do you format an ARM axf file to write directly to flash

Started by Chris September 7, 2004
Hi everyone.
I have a program running on my AT91 board (using AT91R40008) that can send
data to flash via xmodem. I also have an ARM AXF file that I want to burn
into the flash. How do I format the AXF file to burn it into flash? Do I
burn it directly or does any formatting need to take place.

It actually depends on how you have compiled and linked the .axf file in the first place. It also depends on what you are planning to do with this file when it has been written into flash. You can convert it to plain binary with "fromelf -bin -output binaryfile axffile" command. Vadim
