PSoC 5, 3 & 1 MCU

Hi,

   

I have a board where I am using the CY8C3666AXI-052 as a "slave" processor for additional functions that our main TI processor cannot do.  I have SPI and I2C links between the two of them.  I was trying to make it so I could reprogram the PSOC3 with the TI processor.  I was able to sucessfully make a bootloader and bootloadable project, wire in the MINIPROG3 to act as a bootloader host, and sucessfully reprogram the part using the bootloader over the I2C bus that links the PSOC3 and the TI processor.  What I have yet to find is any documentation on how to use an external microcontroller as a bootloader.  I can only find the document on the HSSP programming interface, which would potentially erase the bootloader if it went bad.  Does anyone know if there is a document showing how to run the bootloader from an external microcontroller over I2C?

More importantly, I don't have a jtag interface connected between the two parts.  It seems so convenient to be able to reprogram the part over I2C and takes fewer pins, which is why I want to do it this way.
