First, a status: I am progressing pretty well with my
flasher program. I plan to release it under GPL.

I found a good document as a base to my implementation:


This contains not only the serial commands but I could
find reference to CAN (!) from page 275. This might be
useful for someone doing CAN.

I had no problem with the serial commands. I needed
to ponder on sentences like:

Download Function Command: (page 269)

  "The checksum is added to all data sent with the 5th
   byte onward"

and only my engineer vein told me that I don't need to
add the checksum to the data, but rather calculate the
checksum by adding up the data bytes transmitted :)

Now I can do even fancy things, like send a program into RAM,
or read pages from flash and boot area, change baud-rates e.t.c.

The only strange thing I found so far is that there are areas
in the boot area where the data output stops for no reason.
If someone knows why please tell me!

Now I had to put extra "--ignore" flag to ignore errors like
