14.1 EDK - FlashWriter "Convert ELF to bootable SREC format" is greyed out

Description

In 14.1, the checkbox in the FlashWriter GUI to "Convert ELF to bootable SREC format" is greyed out under all circumstances.

Solution

This is a known issue that was resolved in the 14.2 version of the tools.

Follow these steps to convert your ELF to SREC format:

  1. In the SDK GUI, click Xilinx Tools -> Launch Shell.
  2. Type the following command for MicroBlaze:
    mb-objcopy -O srec application.elf application.sre
  3. Type the following command for PowerPC:
    powerpc-eabi-objcopy -O srec application.elf application.srec
  4. Close the shell.


You should now have an SREC in the same location as your "application.elf" file. You can now select that file in the FlashWriter GUI to program.
