BF526 bfrom_MemBoot() halting CPU rather than booting next program

Alright, I've played with this some more, and am still somewhat stuck. When I use the bfrom_MemBoot() command with an ADSP-BF526 connected to a JTAG ICE-100B, the CPU halts after executing the bfrom_MemBoot() command.


Right now, I have the program set-up so that it will infinite loop, constantly booting and re-booting the BOOTLOADER program. The BOOTLOADER is stored in flash at offset 0x0000, so location 0x2000000 in the BF526 memory map.

Here is some pseudocode representing what I have so far.

#include <vector>

#include <stdlib.h>

#include <bfrom.h>

#include "Flash.h"

int main( void ) {




  if(flag == true) {

    // Do nothing


  else {






  return 0;





A bit more information.

  1. When the CPU executes "CALL(P1)" to run function 0xEF000008 (bfrom_memboot), R0 = 0x20000000, R1 = 0, R2 = 0.
  2. When the CPU halts, it is at instruction 0xEF000748 (IDLE instruction).
  3. If I continue attempting to step, the CPU stops at instruction 0xEF00074E (IF CC JUMP 0), with value 0x0001025 in register ASTAT.
