It took me a while to figure out how to build even a blinky-LED app for the FRDM-KL25Z using gcc from the Linux command-line, so maybe someone else will find the attached tar file useful. It contains a Makefile, header file, startup code, linker script, and blinky-LED app which I put together from various places. At least for me, I can now type "make" and "cp main.srec /media/FRDM-KL25Z" to build and upload. I used the Linux ARM GCC binaries from GCC ARM Embedded in Launchpad
Original Attachment has been moved to: test-frdm-kl25z.tar.gz
The CPP demo is working now. (arm-gcc-none-eabi + Eclipse Kelper CDT + PEmicro gdbserver basic + Windows XP). Makefile has not been released, but will be available soon.
Maybe my question is a little off-topic. I want to run an open source project on Windows as well.
I downloaded Github project payne92/bare-metal-arm · GitHub, and tried to build it in Windows. The windows version of gcc-arm is used and makefile is updated for toolchain path.

I can build it successfully. but the demo.out demo.o will be removed anyway. But I can not find it in makefile.

I'm struggling to get the suggestions mentioned above to work. I've built the "bare-metal-arm" and went through the following to try and get things working-
1. git clone https://github.com/payne92/bare-metal-arm
cd bare-metal-arm; make gcc-arm
4. cd /dev; ls sd*; --> provides me with the sd port (for example 'sdb')
5. plug in the micro usb to the SDA port
6. mkdir ~/kl25z
7. sudo mount -t vfat /dev/sdb ~/kl25z
8. cp ~/bare-metal-arm/demo.srec ~/kl25z
The RBG led turns green which makes me think the program has loaded correctly... I tried to run 'screen /dev/sdb 115200' but it fails. Could someone please tell me how to get output from the KL25Z board?
Also, I updated the OpenSDA firmware to 1.06 and now I can only see the SDA block in debug mode (holding reset while plugging in the board).
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
The device you are listening on seems wrong. Try /dev/ttyACMn, where n is
the one assigned to the serial connection for the board (check system
messages for which one it is for you)

Did you upgrade both bootloader and OpenSDA to the latest? (just to make sure it should run fine with linux)
Anyway - when I attach the board, I get the following in dmesg:

It attaches both as a mass storage on /dev/sdb and a "modem" on /dev/ttyACM3 (on mine)
I can communicate with the serial comm using minicom or node.js + serialport (remember to set the correct baud rate, etc.)
WOW - thanks for the effort (all in the thread). One question though: How do you get the board to be recognized as mass storage from Linux to begin with? I just got 2 from Farnell and they never get recognized as mass storage under Ubuntu 13.04 (64bit)
I think you might need the updated bootloader P&E has relased (BOOTUPDATEAPP.SDA):
Most boards I have seen shipping come with v1.02 or v1.01, so you probably need update to v1.08.
From the bootloader release notes:
v1.05 Fixed binary files download to bootloader. Wrong address was used (0x0000 instead of 0x8000)
Fixed led not coming on upon an error
v1.07 Added Bootloader support for Linux
v1.08 Future feature additions (undocumented)
Hello I am working on FRDM 25z freedom board but not able to load code on freedoboard FRDM KL25Z .How should i do that..?
1.I have copied MSD-FRDM-KL26Z_Pemicro_v112.SDA file to "/media/BOOTLOADER" and then again repower device but till me not getting how to load code on FRDM KL25Z.:smileysad:
so please guide me related to that.
Thanks! - ... if it works for one board, I just need to figure out how to scale it up to the 1000s :smileywink: it would be great if the schools could just order the stuff directly.... but we will figure it out.. somehow.
The github project (payne92/bare-metal-arm · GitHub) should be promoted to the front page for the KL25Z on the farnell and freescale pages. If it works, it's - by far - the simplest solution to get stuff done.
