Question about esp32 Flash download through JTAG

Postby jeromeh » Tue Jan 03, 2017 7:17 am

Hi,

I'm trying to program flash through JTAG for esp32, but getting error message: "Error: timed out while waiting for target halted".

I have GND/TMS/TCK/TDI/TDO connected, the JTAG log is like below:

Code: Select all

$ openocd -f esp32.cfg -c "program ../helloworld/build/helloworld.elf verify reset exit"

By adding a connection of SRST to CH_PU of esp32, I can see a print of "esp32.cpu0: target state: halted", but still have similar error as below:

Does anybody managed successfully program flash through JTAG? Any hint will be appreciated. Thanks,

That is not supported yet; the code needed to support it has not even been written yet so it's no surprise you run into errors. Sorry, for now you'll have to re-flash over serial.

Thanks for confirming that...

any idea about what is the time frame I can expect to have this supported officially? Say in a few weeks or months?

Hi, because I'm having the same problem of jeromeh, any more precise news about "what you plan" to do in Febrary?

I thank you.

Because the release of 2.0 has been delayed, we haven't started working on flashing via openocd yet. The plan is to modify openocd to upload a flashing stub into IRAM and run it, and then communicate with the stub to send it the data to be uploaded.

No, sorry. I have been not able to work on JTAG for now because of other priorities. The good news is that we however have attracted a new dev, and he's working on several new features for debugging. I think JTAG flashing is also somewhere on his list.
