Does anyone have any ideas on how i can produce a binary output that fills the full flash area.

i need this to test a bootloader and ensure it can write the full flash image correctly.

currently my test app image is 100KB but the need to test images upto 448KB in size

Hi,

In the linker script, advance the "." pointer up to the top location then put a word there using linker, all the space in between should be filled.
