Technischer Bericht 373/09, Fachbereich Informatik, TU Kaiserslautern, 2009


Bootloaders are widely used to startup one or more operating systems. On embedded systems like the Imote2, bootloaders are used to write the executable to the nonvolatile memory and, if a correct image is found, run the executable (operating system). The hardware initialization needed to get an image or write the image, in contrary to a PC architecture, is done by the bootloader. This report describes a bootloader which is fail save and its codeloader is platform independently written in Java.
