Well everything works well up until the load flash.b command. The load
at_flash.b installs fine but when I
want to load the flash.b file then it times out on me. This is weird?
Sometimes it will time out but still say
SUCCESS. When I try to take off bootstrap mode and reset it does nothing.
Do you have a flash.b file at your ftp site that I could access to verify
that my file is good?
After flash.b is loaded and I start 400 should I stay in bbug after reset?
What would happen if I opened the terminal with minicom? I should still
expect the kernel to load and give me a bootup prompt.
Thanks for your help,
I just want to get this board loaded.

Somehow, my code for ALMA boards and the ADS board got corrupted in
uClinux-126.96.36.199pre7. So yes, some manual work is neede and I still
hope that uClinux maintainers will fix this damage some day.

Correct, hope you configured your kernel to be ran from ROM (and I
this code for ADS board was also damaged in pre7 :( )

OK, here is the confusion. There is flash.b that contains uClinux kernel
root filesystem and there is at_flash.b that you can download from
my ftp site, which is a small utility to program the first megabyte of
the FLASH on ADS board. The "program_flash" macro in bbug script
at_flash.b to be somewhere in /usr/local/lib/bbug/flash.b

The sequence is:
1) Load at_flash.b
2) Load flash.b
3) Start 400
After everything goes OK, but DIP switches in normal position
and reset the board. uClinux should come up.

You probably unless you added that support yourself. My ADS port does
have LCD support, because I don't have an LCD.
Let me know if you still have problems.
