I am using Quartus 14.0 and Cyclone V FPGA..... 

In Qsys system integration tool i am using NOR flash base address as a Reset vector and SDRAM base address as a Exception vector. 

 

If i try to download elf file using niosII IDE everything is fine i can able to download it, and it is working fine. 

and if i am trying to download same elf file through niosII command shell i am getting following error... 

verify failed between address 0x2000020 and 0x200ffff this is sdram address 

 

following is error message:  

 

root@Nitin:/opt/altera/14.0/nios2eds# nios2-download -g ~/uart_with_fpp.elf 

Using cable "USB-Blaster [2-2]", device 1, instance 0x00 

Pausing target processor: OK

Hello Sagar, 

 

Your error message says USB-Blaster[2-2]. See number 2-2. It seems to me that there are 2 USB Blasters connected on your system. Is this correct? If yes, while you download your image using IDE, which USB blaster do you select?

Hello Sagar, 

 

You can try using -r command which is used to reset processor. ( I mean you can use following command while using Nios II command shell : nios2-download -g -r ~/uart_with_fpp.elf

 

I request you to post result once you try this.
