      Hi Cesar,

      Thanks for that link, it's great to know where the documentation lives these days!

      I would have done it the same way too, use minicom on my linux tower. Freescale now owns the 68332, I got to this link via Google, since the Freescale site is not friendly to navigate. Freescale has a forum, where you can also find more resources for your board.

      Just follow the links:

      I use minicom from my linux laptop (or desktop) for download to the MRM board.   After the "ef" function erases the flash,  at the cpu32bug prompt, I type "lo"  enter, and then control-A takes me back to minicom and S sends an ascii file.   I also use the "packhex" command after compile to reduce the S19 file size (just packs it more regularly).

      Really the MRM board is the best robot controller board I've ever used.  I picked up a beaglebone black over the hoildays, and it is intriquing.    Looks like a pretty steep learning curve, though. 

      Any chance of sharing your linux bdm kernel module?  

      best regards,
