PSoC 5, 3 & 1 MCU

I have an unusual problem with reading the correct value from the CyResetStatus variable. I start the watchdog and then delay much longer than the alloted time. My system resets and I place a breakpoint on the first line in 'main'. I have a bootloader timeout of 2 seconds, which I assume is called but then resets the micro after the timeout is exceeded and places the program counter back to the application where my breakpoint is at. 

   

I have read several docs that point me to using this variable, but the reset status variable always returns 0xA0? The top most bit is being set in the bootloader  I think, but the watchdog timeout bit is never being set. Any ideas?

I am quite sure that you should place the breakpoint into the bootloader project. Another approach would be to save the CyTesetStatus in a global area accessible fromm bothm BootLoader and BootLoadable.

   

The second reset issued by the BootLoader will overwrite the initial reset-state.

 Yep, you're right. I placed the login inside of the bootloader project and everything worked fine.
