Firmware update and FPROT

Hi,

 

I want to be able to update the firmware on my 9sXEQ384.

I have the above process working but if I write to the FPROT register then I have no way to start my firmware update as I immediatly get an access violation when I start the Flash erase cycle.  The manual says this will happen also.  At the moment I leave the FPROT = 0xff and I can do a firmware update.

 

Now can I write the backdoor key or is there any other way to do this as I would not like to leave the flash un-protected the way I have it at the moment?

 

I have an enable process that has to be done before I start a firmware update.  Ideally this process would also "modify" FPROT so that I can erase the flash .

 

Thanks,

Wade
