SW4STM32 and SW4Linux fully supports the STM32MP1 asymmetric multicore Cortex/A7+M4 MPUs

   With System Workbench for Linux, Embedded Linux on the STM32MP1 family of MPUs from ST was never as simple to build and maintain, even for newcomers in the Linux world.
And, if you install System Workbench for Linux in System Workbench for STM32 you can seamlessly develop and debug asymmetric applications running partly on Linux, partly on the Cortex-M4.
You can get more information from the ac6-tools website and download two short videos (registration required) highlighting:

System Workbench for STM32


Release bin file does not work while the debug bin file works. Why?

I have a bootloader that can copy a program bin file from the USB memory to the internal flash memory of STM32F429 and start the program. The bootloader doesn’t care about the content of the bin file and just does the copying dutifully. The strange thing is that if the bin file is built with the debug configuration it works as expected, but if the bin file is built with the release configuration it doesn’t work. When I check the post build step both the release and debug configuration use the same command:
arm-none-eabi-objcopy -O binary ${ProjName}.elf _${ProjName}.bin

I’m baffled why one works and the other one doesn’t work. Should more options be added for the command for the release configuration?

Any help is very much appreciated.
