Hello,
i worked also with brutus. If you has a running angel on brutus, then you can make a
small program header for your program. This header has to be linked as the first part
of your program. It is only uses for the angel debugger to identify the file format.
The header itself has no functionality. But now you can use the angel development
tools to download your binary image and burn it into flash (using the fmu - sample).
Select the switches for starting user image and angel starts your program. If you
need more information, please use 'cc Roman.Jordan@planet-interkom.de'. I will try to
check, what i have done some weeks ago.

greetings from germany,
Roman Jordan
