For those of you following the development of openchronos-ng, we got some feedback from users at our IRC channel, saying that sometimes they could not flash the watch over RF (rfbsl). They also said this didn't happen with original TI's firmware.
Since sometimes we also have been unable to use rfbsl, I figured out that it was probably because the wireless updater didn't have enough RAM to store the firmware image. This makes sense because openchronos-ng uses more RAM to minimize the overall (RAM+flashmem) usage.
So basically I ended up doing the following things, which is already available in the
BOOT master branch:
This fixes the memory problem referred above because at boot we do not have anything allocated in the heap. Also, it is very handy if your watch crashes, because you will be able to still use the wireless updater instead of having to disassemble the watch..
