Just thought I’d share how to open up a GDB connection over J-Link (instead of stlink) on OS X. The nordic dev kits for instance all come with J-Links so may be relevant to some.
step one - openocd
After installing openocd go to the scripts
We need to make a slight change to the config to tell jlink to use SWD. The “jlink.cfg” file has only the (uncommented) line:
… so add
transport select swd
on the following line in that file.
Now I use the following command to open the debug session:
openocd -f interface/jlink.cfg -f target/stm32f2x.cfg -c "telnet_port 4444"
Finally connect to the session using telnet:
telnet localhost 4444
Now, after some info from Julien Vanier at https://medium.com/@jvanier/5-steps-to-setup-and-use-a-debugger-with-the-particle-photon-ad0e0fb43a34#.6hx9v7e1c
… try to open a GDB session:
arm-none-eabi-gdb -ex "target remote localhost:3333" ../build/target/main/platform-6-m/main.elf
In this case that uses the *.elf file from photon firmware repository.
