OpenChronos - Open Source Firmware for the TI EZ430-Chronos Watch
Updates the hidden menu RFBSL to work better.
== Status ==
Should be fully functional. The hidden menu RFBSL places the wireless update (RFBSL) menu entry as a sub-menu with the battery voltage monitor.
This update makes toggling between the battery and rfbsl behave like a normal submenu (uses the down arrow), as well as fixes some pre-processor issues. Specifically, disabling the battery voltage monitor AND enabling the hidden rfbsl menu would result in no rfbsl menu, forcing the user to use the (SLOW!) USB programmer for the next firmware upload.
To-do idea (from gibbons): merge the battery, rfbsl, and sync functions all into one menu (a "hardware" or "tools" menu, for example). Ideally, also make it easier to pick and choose from these three options without needing ridiculous preprocessor commands, e.g.
== Requirements ==
msp430-gcc4 http://mspgcc4.sourceforge.net/ make python http://python.org
== Supported Compilers ==
msp430-gcc4 Working combinations: gcc=4.4.3 binutils=2.20.1 libc=20100430
Patches for more (more efficient) compilers are welcome :-)
== HOWTO ==
Copy gcc/intrinsics.h into [msp430-gcc-path]/msp430/include/intrinsics.h
To configure your image, run:
which will generate a config.h file that contains the settings for your build.
To compile the image run:
It is HIGHLY suggested to make a clean build before you flash the image with:
make clean main
== Problems ==
Compile / Link problems: If you get error messages like this one:
msp430/bin/ld: build/eZChronos.elf section
.text' will not fit in regiontext' .../msp430/bin/ld: section .vectors loaded at [000000000000ff80,000000000000ffff] overlaps section .text loaded at [0000000000008000,0000000000013343] .../msp430/bin/ld: region `text' overflowed by 13250 bytes collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
section .vectors loaded at [0000ff80,0000ffff] overlaps section .data loaded at [0000ff4e,0000ffcb]
Your image is simply to large and will not fit into the flash. Try to disable some modules with make config and try again Or even better, send some patches that reduce code size ;-)
