Jumping from bootloader to Application

Hi NXP team,


I am using S32K144 controller in our project.

I am facing some problems with " jump to application from boot loader".

my application may starts from 0xA000 or 0x9000 address as per our requirement.


Problem 1:

code is


JumptoApp(T_U32 *ptr)


   FSL_SCB->VTOR = (uint32_t)&__VECTOR_TABLE; //don't want to relocate vector table


      asm("ldr r0,=0x0000A000");

      asm("blx r0");



__attribute__((section (".App_codearea"))) void Application(void)


int b;

b = 10;






.App_codearea section starts from 0x0000A000;

If I run the above code , then it goes to default isr, it is not jumping to application.

if I use asm("bl 0x0000A000") it is jumping to the application address.

if I load the PC with 0x8000 address also , it jumps to application and goes to default ISR.

why above code is not jumping to application? 


Problem 2 :


could you please tell me how to load the other registers with  pointer value?


JumptoApp(T_U32 *ptr)


//how to load the register with pointer value (passed as input argument to this function)

    asm("ldr r1, ptr"); ????
