openocd for ADSP-SC589 gives Error: session transport was not selected. Use 'transport select <transport>'

I am following below document for environment setup, porting Uboot on ADSP-SC589 EZ Board:'s_Guide-1.2.0.pdf

When i run openocd command, I am getting following error:

root@nikesh:/opt/analog/cces/2.8.2/ARM/openocd/share/openocd/scripts# /opt/analog/cces/2.8.2/ARM/openocd/bin/openocd -f interface/ice1000.cfg target/adspsc58x.cfg

Open On-Chip Debugger (Analog Devices CCES 2.8.0 OpenOCD 0.9.0-g5030ad7) 0.9.0

Report bugs to <>
adapter speed: 1000 kHz
Info : ICE-1000 firmware version is 1.0.2

Error: session transport was not selected. Use 'transport select <transport>'
Error: Transports available:
Error: jtag
Error: swd
in procedure 'init'
in procedure 'ocd_bouncer'

What would be the reason for this?

I did following connections,

  1. Connected power cable to P22.
  2. J2 port of ICE-1000 mounted on P3 port of ADSP-SC589 EZ Board’s P3 port.
  3. MicroUSB-to-USB cable connected to USB to UART port (P8) of EZ Board.
  4. MicroUSB-to-USB cable connected to P1 port of ICE-1000.
  5. Ethernet cable connected to J2 of EZ Board.

Let me know if I am missing any connection.

    Hi ,

    Patched 1.2.0 u-boot images and build&test logs for ADSP-SC589 EZKIT 2.0 board are available from, please help to check it.

    Please let me know if you have any questions, thanks a lot.

  • Thanks Gregchen,

    Can you also share Patched 1.2.0 kernel images.

  • Thanks Gregchen, it worked with your uboot image, I am able to ping between host and board.

    I applied kernel patch and created uImage and loaded it on board using command "run ramboot". Kernel loaded successfully but I am not able to get console(shell prompt), kernel loading gets stucked at below log:

    There is not progress after this and not able to get shell console. 

    Can you please share Patched 1.2.0 kernel images.

    Thanks Gregchen.

  • Hi Gregchen,

    I am able to boot the board with our patched uImage. I loaded uboot using tftp, and also able to load kernel but when i restart the board, uboot doesnt get loaded. I have to load it from gdb every time i reboot the board. Can you let me know how can I save uboot to flash memory so that it will get loaded every time i reboot the board.

    Hi Nikesh,

    this is documented in the User Guide (version 1.2.0 of the User Guide lists the steps in section 2.1.3 Flashing U-Boot for the first time).

    It is strongly recommended that when starting out that users follow all instructions in Chapter 2 of the User guide to avoid problems while getting the system up and running.
