I'm running a baremetal EL2 program downloaded from Development Studio(DS) to the Morello hardware (which already has a branch-to-self loop running compiled as BL33 in the fip). I've modified the initialisation scripts to run at EL2 as per https://community.arm.com/support-forums/f/morello-forum/52923/baremetal-tfa-payload-built-for-capability-mode-still-in-pstate-a64-on-el2-entry and have a single c file with my main function. This works fine on the FVP when downloaded via DS, but when I download to the hardware and step through the code from entry it seems to stop after the first few instructions of crt0 on the HLT #0xF000 instruction which I believe is part of the Angel debug - AngelSVCAsm AngelSVC.
On the FVP this instruction populates the memory with the heap and stack addresses.
So this explains why when I by-passed HLT #0xF000 by moving on the program counter, it falls over on the first use of the stack. It looks like there is no stack address value stored in memory, the code that reads the value reads in zero and hence causes a problem later.
What do I need to do differently to make it work on the hardware? as apposed to FVP?, is there a build setting I need to include?
Also just to add, it looks like this has been fixed in release 1.4
