I know that it is obviously not possible to do this while gdb is communicating with the target from same channel, but this case is different as you see. Is this possible? (i.e. does redboot block that channel even if there's no gdb on that channel anymore?)

Why not just use RedBoot to load & execute the program,
without involving GDB at all?
