now it works!! I can boot from flash!
It was just the problem of endianess; for some reason when I compiled
mkbugboot.c on the board it take it as little-endian; it was sufficient
to force the code putting:
bbh->entry_offset = cpu_to_be32(header_size); /* Entry address */
bbh->routine_length = cpu_to_be32(MAX_BOOT_SIZE+boot_size+2);
and everything went fine. I'll look to understand why it take it as
LITTLE_ENDIAN on a big endian computer, but now I'm very happy!
Thank you again for the good work.
Microsoft is NOT the answer. Microsoft is the Question.
The answer is: "NO!"
