Ethernet Bootloader for K60, K61?

Hello everyone!


I am new to Freescale and Kinetis, so please forgive my RTFM-questions.

I have a K60 Tower development kit. I searched for a bootloader which should be able to load an application via Ethernet.


My first approach was to donload MQX 3.8.1 and try the bootloader example.

I noticed that there are configurations for various CPU's but not for the K60.


So I created an empty project for my CPU, copied the sources of the bootloader example into the sources directory and made my way through all the compiler errors until I had included the search paths for all the include files necessary. This went fine until a point where the compiler stopped at an error directive in adc.h like this:


This could mean that I included a wrong path somewhere or that the bootloader example should be modified to be used on the K60.

On the other hand, I found it surprising that I need an ADC for the bootloader.



I paused with this one and tried the "Ethernet Bootloader for the MCU"

The quick start guide tells me to use the mcp-file for my processor.

Well, there is a configuration directory mk60n512 which is not exactly my CPU but hopefully close enough.

The surprise is, that there is no mcp file in this directory. There are, however, mcp-files in the other konfiguration directories for other CPU's.

Here I go again....


My question is: Am I completely off the mark with my approaches, what would be a good approach?

Or should I go ahead and modify the examples if needed and hope to get a working Software in the end?
