The Long Story

I managed to get the 5×2 pin header, and a “jtag cable” from a previous employer. I haven't soldered in awhile so I messed with it awhile trying to desolder all the points to attach the 10-pin header. Well, turns out, as far as I know, that the ground connections are not drilled through. So I attached ground to the serial port. Then I look at the “jtag cable”. It's not wired at all like any JTAG I saw mentioned. Well, Bob did say he tried to make his own once and it didn't work. I guess that's the one he gave me. Don't know why, he's got several. One is USB, wish I borrowed that one now..

So I re-wire the jtag cable to use the “DLC5” aka “very poor man's jtag” pin-out. There are resistors on our PCB which should be plenty, but I added what I had and they're like 450ohm and seem to work… Then, software… tjtag would be awesome if it worked. It doesn't seem to use DLC5 correctly for me…? Then I noticed I need nTRST at 3.3v, so I tied that to the serial port as well. so our 14-pin JTAG has pin1 going straight to 3.3v (shoulda used a 100ohm resistor they say), and next 4 pins down the left side going to parallel port pins 2,13,4,3 (in that order) and parallel port's ground going to serial port ground…

For visual: diagram mine

So I tried tjtag again and no dice. wtf. but some italian program for AR7 noticed the CPU ID as “1” so I searched and found UrJTAG. I had to find libusb0.dll and ftd25xx.dll so the program will run. Neither library being utilized… wtf! But works better than getting cygwin for the old jtag tools ports.. What a day! All to save a $15 router. hah.

I returned from sleep and it didn't work. I programmed the wrong address. soooo unless UrJtag says the Manufacturer and Chip type, it's not gonna work. Remember that. I assumed it was a supported family, but unsupported chip and thus didn't display. 0x3fc00000 would be the 16-bit access to any MIPS CPU's boot-rom, which is of course mapped to flash for us. It's also mapped at 0x30000000. For me, the 64k image takes just under 30minutes to flash. I recommend using noverify when flashing.
