Now this is where the conditional jump is to at the start of the function:
Code: Select all400079fd:   ffd951      l32r         a5, 40007964 <pllat_00e44080>

40007a03:   051905    call0      4000cb94 <__divdf3>
40007a06:   204dd0    or          a4, a13, a13
40007a09:   205ee0    or          a5, a14, a14
40007a0c:   04b285    call0      4000c538 <__adddf3>
40007a0f:   0534c5    call0      4000cd5c <__truncdfsf2>
40007a12:   02ed         mov.n    a14, a2
40007a14:   ffe606      j             400079b0 <rom_rfpll_set_freq+0x48>; jump back to line 12301, 0x400079b0

My preliminary conclusion is that this function does nothing whatsoever with hardware. It's merely a function that seems to calculate values. I will have another look to check. Maybe you should supply the I/O address as a parameter, not sure, but it's not in the code.

#92280 Something is written to the adress in a5, which transferred to a12 later. I think that is the only point where something is written to memory/IO other than to stack.

It looks like:

a2_a3 double argument 1
a4 int argument 1
a5 pointer/int argument

Do you do anything with the "cpu clock doubler" (i.e. turn it off or on explicitly)? I'd rather have a CPU running at a "high" frequency and the APB at half of it (like it normally does), because then there is more chance that all peripherals will continue to work.

The CacheReadEnable (-Disable) functions have to do with mapping flash memory to IRAM. I am not sure how your knowledge is at this point, forgive me if you already know: there is in total 64 kb IRAM in the ESP8266. 32 kb is used for "iram" code i.e. functions that are not specifically mentioned as to not cache in IRAM. The other 32 kb is used for caching flash memory as the processor cannot execute instructions directly from flash. The CacheReadEnable functions (or CacheReadEnable2 versions) set up this caching. They can "mirror" at most 1 Mbyte of flash memory and you can choose which one, out of four (@ 0 Mb, @ 1 Mb, @ 2 Mb, @ 3 Mb).

I think your code runs in IRAM (I don't know how you build it to an image?), so it shouldn't depend on the flash cache. I don't know why the nonosdsk does something with it anyway?

I use the function
Code: Select all$(ESPTOOL) elf2image $(TARGET_OUT) -o $(TARGET_OUT)-0x00000.bin

the same as in nosdk8266 but for the last

Yes, i do set the overclock bit, so i have a PLL of ~195 MHz and the CPU of ~390 MHz.
Yesterday i made a lot of experiments, but after disable I2S (i find that I2S at such that speed cause troubles) and disable the cache, my code work for a time and then it start generating errors. Maybe was soemthing that i change, but im implemmenting all things again in a new copy of my nosdk8266 fork to merge all tested.

i found this combination: 189/0x00/0x88 (UART divider at 189, this means PLL at 189 MHz, CPU reg 0x00, Charles wrote that this put the CPU at arround 190 MHz and 0x88 on the PLL reg, this put the PLL at arround ~185 MHz)

So, in an hour or so i will start removing all I2S/Cache code and see if it still stable at 346 MHz, if all works for an hour, i will inseert the 390 MHz registers and do a test over all the night.

I remember that yesterday, i ended up with some FLASH reading errors, some printf errors and some error in main (all from disrom.S) so i guess that the ESP8266 start failing at this such speed. we need check rfpll_set_freq, of find in the ROM where is the code that sets the PLL/CPU divider and change it.
