Get S32G UART Serial Boot (not flashing, but run from SRAM) working?

I do not want to flash anything. I just want to do a Serial Boot via UART.

From AN12422. Rev. 4. S32G2 Boot Process

It says:

Steps if Serial boot is required:
1. Application binary to download (Constraint – SRAM size of 8 MB)
2. Tool to transfer binary on Serial (UART/CAN) port. Use S32 Design Studio (S32DS) flash tool can also be used for serial download

So how does one use the S32FlashTool command line tool to do a serial download of an image that matches

  S32G RM ; ch 30.4.5 Serial boot ; Table 157. Image structure for non-secure serial boot

?

I tried various options like using the image as the -t my_image_with_D8h_header.bin but that didn't work. The S32G2xx is setup for Serial Boot as the S32FlashTool correctly talks to it and can -fread some flash.

If S32FlashTool can't actually perform the serial download, then what are the constraints that an external tool needs to follow?

There are no officially supported methods to load a custom application using
Serial Boot mode, sorry. If you are looking for a fully supported solution,
consider using JTAG with the appropriate debug probe and software.
As of Serial Boot, there are certain limited workarounds which we currently
cannot share in a public Forum. If your company/organization has a valid
NDA with NXP, you can open a Support Case to receive more information.

AN12422. Rev. 4. S32G2 Boot Process

should then be updated to reflect that fact.
