The GoodFET is a nifty little tool for quickly exposing embedded system buses to userland Python code. It is no longer under active development, but I hope that you find it useful nonetheless.
If you are experimenting with the Facedancer USB emulator framework, you probably want Kate Temkin's fork. It is available at https://github.com/ktemkin/Facedancer .
For Mac, install XCode, MacPorts, and the FTDI Virtual COM Driver.
For Windows, install Python 2.7 as 32-bit, FTDI VCP Drivers, and add Python your %PATH% in order to run the scripts in \client.
In Linux, the FTDI drivers are included by default. Be sure that the
user has permissions for
/dev/ttyUSB0, which will likely require
adding that user to the dialout group.
You will need python-serial, wget, gcc-msp430, and curl. These might have different names, and the MSP430 compiler might be separated from its libc implementation.
sudo apt-get install -y gcc-msp430 msp430-libc curl wget python-serial # Ubuntu Xenial
First, grab a copy of the client code and link it into
git clone https://github.com/travisgoodspeed/goodfet/ (cd client && sudo make link)
Before using the client, you will need to specify your hardware
revision in the
%client% environment variable.
If your GoodFET has not yet been flashed, or if you would like to develop new firmware features, you will need to compile from scratch.
cd ~/goodfet/firmware board=goodfet41 make clean all
