 To program the bootloader into the internal flash on the LM3S6965 microcontroller,​ the LM Flash Programmer utility was used in combination with the In-Circuit Debugger Interface (ICDI), that is available on the board. ​ However, this is not required if you have another means of programming the internal flash. To program the bootloader into the internal flash on the LM3S6965 microcontroller,​ the LM Flash Programmer utility was used in combination with the In-Circuit Debugger Interface (ICDI), that is available on the board. ​ However, this is not required if you have another means of programming the internal flash.
  
-To compile ​the demo programs ​with [[http://www.mentor.com/embedded-software/sourcery-tools/sourcery-codebench/​lite-edition|Codesourcery G++ Lite]] (Target OS EABI), you can invoke ​the make utility from the command ​line.+To build the demo programs ​you can use the [[https://developer.arm.com/open-source/gnu-toolchain/gnu-rm|GNU ARM Embedded]] toolchain. 
 + 
 +===== Toolchain configuration ===== 
 + 
 +The demo programs are configured for building with a Makefile. Before attempting to perform a build, update the location of the toolchain binaries ​(i.e. //​arm-none-eabi-gcc//​in the Makefile. It is set in variable **TOOL_PATH**. If the toolchain binaries are available on the paththen the **TOOL_PATH** variable can be left empty.

 +{{:​manual:​demos:​makefile_toolpath.png?​nolink&​|}}

 + 
 +It is assumed that tools such as GNU //make// and //rm// are installed and available on the path. For (Ubuntu) Linux users this can be achieved by running ​command: //sudo apt-get install build-essential//​. Windows users can install the [[https://​gnu-mcu-eclipse.github.io/​windows-build-tools/​|GNU MCU Eclipse Windows Build Tools]].

-  * Click the "​**Options**"​-button to configure the communication parameters. +
-    * Select the PC's **COM-port** that the board is connected to. +
-    * Set the baudrate to **57600** bits/sec.+
  
-Once you saved the settings by clicking the "​**OK**"​-button twice, you can close Microboot by clicking the "​**Cancel**"​-button on the main screen. Microboot ​is now ready for action!+<​code>​
