MSPDebug ======== MSPDebug is a free debugger for use with MSP430 MCUs. It supports FET430UIF, eZ430, RF2500 and Olimex MSP430-JTAG-TINY programmers, as well as many other compatible devices. It can be used as a proxy for gdb or as an independent debugger with support for programming, disassembly and reverse engineering. Features -------- * Userspace only: no kernel modifications required. * Works with RF2500, eZ430, FET430UIF (V2 and V3), Launchpad, Chronos, GoodFET, Olimex MSP430-JTAG-TINY and MSP430-JTAG-ISO programmers. Also supports the TI flash bootloader. * Can act as a GDB remote stub (replacement for msp430-gdbproxy) and/or a GDB client. * Can single-step, program, run to breakpoint and inspect memory on supported devices. * Can be used to access the FET430UIF bootloader. * Supports Intel HEX, ELF32, BSD symbol table, COFF, TI Text and SREC file formats. * Can disassemble code in memory, including translating addresses to symbols. * Includes reverse-engineering features such as instruction search, call-graph analysis and symbol table editing. * Simulation mode allows execution of MSP430 code without hardware. * Cross-platform: compiles on Linux, *BSD, OS/X and Windows. Compiling from source --------------------- Ensure that you have the necessary packages to compile programs that use libusb (on Debian or Ubuntu systems, you might need to do apt-get install libusb-dev). After that, unpack and compile the source code with: tar xvfz mspdebug-version.tar.gz cd mspdebug-version make On Debian Ubuntu systems sudo apt-get install libreadline-dev may be required. If you don't want GNU readline support, you can invoke make with: make WITHOUT_READLINE=1 After compiling, install the binary and manual page by running (as root): make install Type "mspdebug --help" for usage instructions.
