I know, but for first test 64k are quite fine. And for my first tests I like to be as none invasive as possible. The board is the mindstorms NXT board and to have JTAG debugging I would need to disassamble the brick and solder a connector in. However I can image that I will not come far without debugging support.

I thought of useing sam-ba for loading and starting images.

Is this necessary for the vectors to be at the right place?
