Flashing the Atmel AT91SAM9M10-G45

September 15, 2010

This is a very cool board and has a lot of good features, but for those of you who are attempting to install your own operating system, you’d better make sure that only one of the jumpers are closed (either the data flash or the NAND flash)! ┬áThe flashing script will start the procedure but will halt after fetching the CPU id (incorrect) and will not continue. This is all very logical and there are good reasons behind it, but if you weren’t aware of the existence of the “data flash” jumper, then it can be very puzzling indeed.
