Lo-tech XT-CF flash utility
The Lo-tech XT-CF flash utility is a simple DOS program that writes a binary input file to the ROM on the Lo-tech XT-CF Boards and Lo-tech 8-bit ROM Board, both of which use ST39SF0x0 or AMIC A29010 flash chips.
flash [image-file] [base-address]
- [image-file] is the name of the binary file to load
- [base-address] is the base address of the chip, for example D000
Since the boards have 32 or 64KB available, multiple ROM binaries can be written out by appending them into a single file ensuring images are 2KB aligned; however note that the entire flash chip is erased before programming.
C:\>flash Lo-tech XT-CF and 8-bit ROM Board Flash Programmer. Usage: 1. Simple mode - write an image file to the ROM. The ROM is completely erased, then the file copied. Can be used with 32KB or 64KB configurations. eg: flash [image-file] [base-address] [image-file] - ROM image [base-address] - hex ROM window base address, i.e. D000 must be A000-F800
