1.4.3. U-Boot

Debugging U-boot is very similar to debugging the Preloader. The same techniques are available.

The Preloader Support Package Generator creates the file uboot.ds in the Preloader folder, that can be used to debug the U-Boot from the ARM DS-5 AE. Since the executable is an ELF format, any other compatible debugger may be used, as well.
