LPC4357 jumping to external flash unstable

Hello,

I have two programs, one is custom bootloader which will be located in BANK A and the other one is the main program which will be located in external spifi flash.
Both programs I load and debug from eclipse.

Currently I can jump from the bootloader to the main program, I can start debug with jtag from the reset handler in the main program but sometimes is continues to main and sometimes it breaks after the first step.

From the bootloader I do the following for jumping to main program:


halInit();   // init my hal functions
chSysInit();   // init my OS
chThdSleepMilliseconds(1000);
flashInit(); // init the spifi driver

uint32_t NewAddressOfNewVectorTable = 0x14000000;

__disable_irq();

/**  Load new Vector Table  **/
SCB->VTOR = AddressOfNewVectorTable;
__set_MSP(*(uint32_t*)(AddressOfNewVectorTable));
LPC_CREG->M4MEMMAP = AddressOfNewVectorTable;

/**
* Jump to Reset Vector of new Vector Table
* -> thats the second word (hence fourth byte).
*/
((user_code_pointer_t)(*((uint32_t*)(AddressOfNewVectorTable + 4))))();


This seems to work alright and it jumps to the 0x14000000 address.

Then when I start to debug with JTAG the app, it will come first in the reset handler.

I firstly had to disable __early_init() for the main app which configures the clocks, this would make all crash.
Is this correct?

Then sometimes I can step through all into the main() function.

But also regularly it crashes after doing the first step with JTAG with the following output:

Am I missing something that is needed after the jump to external flash?
Or can anyone give me a pointer why this is not functioning properly all the time?

Cheers,
Gerard
