Gen_misc.bat/.sh Version misunderstood??

Postby Fleuve » Wed Mar 16, 2016 7:08 am

I create Visual Studio 2015 Plugins to compile ESP firmware (http://bbs.espressif.com/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=1867) and I fix some bug about "version selection" versus "Boot.bin version".

First, I have remark that version of RTOS 1.3.0 was purged of "*.old.*.ld" inside LD Folder. On Non-OS 1.5.0 and 1.5.2, the files still there.

Now if you retake all operation from Gen_misc.bat the first step is:

Code: Select all

Please follow below steps(1-5) to generate specific bin(s):
STEP 1: choose boot version(0=boot_v1.1, 1=boot_v1.2+, 2=none)


OK, if you choose boot_v1.1, it's gonna COMPILE with old file inside LD Folder. But when it's gonna be time to flash, it's where that I find a little weird. It's beautiful to COMPILE with old file, but we don't have Boot_v1.1.bin.

Now we face two possible problem:
[*]Programmer forget to update version string inside Gen_misc.bat
    "0=boot_v1.2, 1=boot_v1.4(b1), 2=none"
    "0=boot_v1.2, 1=boot_v1.5, 2=none"
[*]Old boot version is obsolete because we don't have proper boot binary file and programmer forget to remove from menu.

Thanks

Hi,

Please use the latest version of boot.bin which is boot_v1.5.bin now.

boot_v1.1 is a very very old version which is deprecated.

So sorry for the inconvenience.

OK Thanks I will update my Visual Studio plugins.

That's mean "v1.2,v1.4,v1.5 = new" and "v1.1 = old" if really this... I gonna remove OLD concept from visual studio and replace FIRST STEP by a FILE SELECTION EX: None,boot_v1.2,boot_v1.5. Where ESPTool gonna take the proper bin file (without file compare to detect OLD and NEW version)

Or OLD Concept was:
on 1.5.0. Old = 1.2
New = 1.4(b1)
on 1.5.2. Old = 1.2
New = 1.5
