Hi i am trying to download the u-boot from ldr viewer to the blackfin 516f. I have connected the uart0 Gnd, Rx, Tx and the Hwait signal to a ftdi cable(TTL-232R-3V3), usb-uart. I test the port and it says that it is opened and ready but when i try pressing the autobaud it only says timeout, check bmode and press reset. I have tried every bmode knowing that is should be the 7, uart0 B-mode. I have checked my board and it provides the right clock for the dsp and the right voltagelevels. So my question is what is wrong, im using the uboot for the bf518 ez board and it workes just fine with that. The 516 and the 518 is in the same family so it should work or is that the problem?
