RTCS kills Flash!!

Hi, I'm using MQX 4.1.1 and both K60DN512ZCAB1 and K60DN512VLQ10 with a custom PCB.

 

I've found that calling RTCS_create(...) prevents my application from using FlashX.

Very sad, yes, I know.

 

Prior to this I could use this to do firmware updates and store calibration parameters.

Now with RTCS enabled, any attempts to write to Flash fail!!

 

Specifically when it goes to flash_ftfl.c->ftfl_flash_command_sequence(), it fails on the second loop.

This otherwise works when RTCS is not enabled.

 

Is there any explanation, or better yet, a fix or workaround?  This is very important to have both ethernet and flash update avaliable!!

 

 

 

Thanks

michael
