WICED : Using command line gdb

Launch openocd in one console

"./tools/OpenOCD/OSX/openocd-all-brcm-libftdi" -s "./tools/OpenOCD/scripts" -f ./tools/OpenOCD/CYW9WCD1EVAL1.cfg -f ./tools/OpenOCD/stm32f4x.cfg -f ./tools/OpenOCD/stm32f4x-flash-app.cfg

 

In another console launch gdb using

./tools/ARM_GNU/bin/OSX/arm-none-eabi-gdb

Once you get to the gdb prompt use

(gdb) target remote localhost:3333
(gdb) monitor reset halt
(gdb) file build/snip.scan-BCM943364WCD1/binary/snip.scan-BCM943364WCD1.elf
(gdb) cont

Below are logs from gdb and openocd
