First of all, I have to wonder about you using a Cortex-A8 at all.
These are usually meant for operating systems and are bootloader setup rather than JTAG debugged.
For those whose have a clone, can you verify if this is true or is it a something that could be worked around?
I really think that you are doing the right thing if you are truly considering the Segger vs the clones.
At least my chances of that working straight out of the box should be much greater.
Hello there, I have a Fluke 77 II in perfect aesthetic condition, but it has a defect that renders it unusable.
If no hell, then buy 10-15USD china FTDI based jtag cable. I want to see gamma rays, I want to hear X-rays, and I want to smell dark matter ...
I want to reach out with something other than these prehensile paws and feel the solar wind of a supernova flowing over me.
That and the risk of vapourizing the JTAG interface with a poor pinout (never experienced that, but heard about).
Vbe - vídeo blog eletrônico the "whys" of the datasheets... Or is maybe any other FTDI FT2232H based jtag cable good enought?
