I am attempting to use a Redboot ROMRAM image on an EB55 board.  I have the images that are in the CVS repository, under images\arm\at91eb55.  I thought that the ROMRAM image should act in the same way as the ROM image at startup, i.e. it sits in the boot area of flash, and sets up the processor, etc.  However, when I look at  the provided srec image, redboot_ROMRAM.srec, I can see that it intends  all the data to end up in the 0x02000000 area, which is RAM.  The Redboot_ROM.srec file has its address in the 0x01000000 area, which is what I would expect, as this is the boot area of flash prior to remap.  (I appreciate that I need to load this into RAM before it can be placed in this location).

Is there an error in the ROMRAM.srec file, or have I misunderstood where it should end up in memory?  My ROM and RAM images work exactly as I would expect, but I am really struggling with ROMRAM.

Thanks for your assistance
