Hi, I am using a MSP430-JTAG-TINY-V2 with IAR Workbench on MSP430F5529. When loading my code, I get verify errors in bank B. I appears that Bank B FLASH is not erased when loading my program.
I see that several others have reported the same problem but I have not found a solution - other than using another tool to clear the FLASH prior to programming. Please help.

Hello MJChapman,

Thank you for contacting me.

I believe that the problem is not in the JTAG-V2 debugger.

Try to place the code to be executed during bank erase in RAM.

This is reported bug in the microcontroller's errata sheet http://www.ti.com/lit/er/slaz314j/slaz314j.pdf.

Also please check this entry at the TI forums: http://e2e.ti.com/support/microcontrollers/msp430/f/166/t/117469.aspx.
