Hi all,
i found there is jtag pin of freedom-500 on vc707 implementation, but no coresponding openocd or bsp found.

Note that on the Linux-capable platform, you can just run GDB as usual to debug your user processes. OpenOCD is really intended for low-level debugging, for example debugging the linux kernel or bootloader.

OpenOCD would work fine as it automatically detects most of the information about the platform. Debugging is basically the same as for the E-series chips, assuming you have an .elf file compiled with debug symbols. You should remove the flash related lines from you OpenOCD config file, otherwise things should basically just work.
