ARM: MDK5.x: How to modify FLASH algorithms
Information in this knowledgebase article applies to:
How can I modify an existing Flash algorithm in MDK5? The chapter Flash Algorithms in the µVision manual refers to the file/folder structure that was used for MDK version 4.
Since MDK version 5, the FLASH algorithms are located in the corresponding Device Family Pack (DFP) folder [MDK_Install_Path]\ARM\Pack\[Vendor]\[Device_Family_Pack]\[Version]\Flash. All files in the 'Pack' folder have the file attribute 'read only' set, because these files are not intended to be changed. Therefore Flash programming algorithms shall not be added/modified nor rebuild within the Pack folder.
Up to MDK version 4, all Flash algorithms were located in the folder [MDK_Install_Path]\ARM\Flash. In MDK version 5, this folder is dedicated to custom Flash algorithms and external Flash devices. Flash algorithms in this folder are shown in the dialog Add Flash Programming Algorithm (see below) with Origin = MDK Core. Therefore we recommend to copy an existing Flash algorithm from the DFP folder into this ARM\Flash folder and to modify and build it there.
