I have two  FRDM-KL25Z boards. Can I use them  program other Kinetis parts? If so, how?


I have some Kinetis parts and need to load programs to the Flash. There is no ROM bootloader on the parts I want to use. Can the FRDM-KL25Z or other low cost evaluation boards be used as a programmer for other Kinetis parts (separate parts, not on the development board but connected to it via SWD, serial, or whatever)?


Other vendors - TI, NXP, STM make this very easy, and I have used them all, but there are some Freescale parts that are better for my purposes.


On a related matter, the Flash code on one of my FRDM-KL25Z is messed up because I put some code in it that corrupted it. How can the original code be restored? A Freescale applications engineer worked with me for a while and was unable to do it.
