ADAU1701 write protect pin connection between the DSP and EEPROM

Hello all,

I'm looking at the AN-923 application note, and the EVAL-ADAU1701MINIZ manual and I can see two different ways to connect WP pin between the DSP and EEPROM:

Application note:



In the first option, WP can be set to high/low level, and in the second option, WP is (DSP wise) is always set to high and will always self boot.

Can someone please explain which option would be the better one?

What are the consideration taken when choosing one over the other?
