Debugging Cortex A15
This page lists useful tips and tricks when debugging Cortex A15 cores.
What is the recommended procedure to reload a program on Cortex-A15 core ?
In order to cleanly reload a program, we need to make sure that the caches are clean. If the currently running program enables the cache, the cache is most likely dirty. Performing a CPU reset on the Cortex-A15 target only disables the cache and does not actually clean the cache lines. It is necessary to perform a System Reset to clean the cache.
Steps to perform a System reset and reload a new program:
Step1: Disconnect from all the A15 targets.
Step2: Click on the reset dropdown menu and select "System Reset".
Step3: Re-connect to the A15 target.
Step4: Reload and run the program.
