  • Change register on action (run, stop, breakpoint) hook

    Is it possible to execute a script on specific action like breakpoint, stop and run?
    I'm writting soft for nRF52832 using Nordic Semiconductor nRF52 SDK.
    The chip is programmed with so called softdevice a closed-source software which uses interrupts and co-exists with my appliacation.
    Every time I need to break I need to change register PRIMASK (Cortex-M4) to 1 to suppress interrupts just before the breakpoint.
    That is the only way to debug without hardfault - one step after the breakpoint.

    So is it possible in Segger Embedded Studio to configure a hook to execute change in a register on a breakpoint?
  • Hello Maciej,

    Sorry for the delay in response.
    Thank you for your inquiry.

    This is currently not possible.

    In such a case you can use the monitor debug mode that Nordic devices support.
