Hi Mark,

1) I am not too sure if that would be the reason .. 
as in his dumps, I see a unlock .
cut n paste
... Unlock from 0x50fe0000-0x51000000: .

is error 92 for something different ?
(strange but if I remember correctly redboot used to call unlock
before erase calls, didnt it , correct me if I am wrong .
and I didndt see that in his fis int . first sector erase .. ?)

Prakash did unlocking solve ur problem ?? 

2)  U said u have 8MB of flash. wouldnt he have to change ixdp425.h
and strataflash.inl ?

3) I had asked some time back also here, that does redboot have support for     
say 2 flash chips detction on 2 different Expansion Bus chip selects
.. I mean say CS0 and CS1, as I could see in my look around that
redboot does probe only on lower address and not for multiple chips
that might be there .. as linux code does it till it can get all max
flash size configured for ..
Mark is my understanding correct ..?


Cheers,
Alfred
