This applies to release 2.2.0 of CrossWorks for MSP430. The checksum feature of the linker will be removed in later releases and it is best that you design your own checksum algorithms outside of CrossStudio. We would suggest generating a hex file and then iterating over the sections or memory areas you need to checksum by interpreting the contents of the hex file and modifying it appropriately.
To checksum your application:
- Add the sections you want included in the checksumming to the Checksum Sections property in the Linker Options group of the project.
- Import the section placement file because you need to modify it.
- Add a loadable CHECKSUM section to the FLASH group.
