Does the Native SDK support Thumb code?

Does the Native SDK support compiling to Thumb, or Thumb-2 code?

 

I don't see any references which mention it and the linker aborts after hitting an assertion when asked to link objects buit with -mthumb:

 

/Developer/SDKs/bbndk-2.1.0-beta1/host/macosx/x86/usr/bin/ntoarm-ld: BFD (GNU Binutils) 2.19.1 assertion fail /builds/642-binutils-2.19-osx/svn/darwin-x86-o-ntoarm/../bfd/elf32-arm.c:4007

 

(NDK 2.1.0, running on OS X).

 

The requirement here is that we're porting a tool which can emit ARM, Thumb and Thumb-2 code. If Thumb is not supported in the Native SDK that's fine, but we need to know.

 

Regards,

Dave

Hi there,

 

I see this thread seems to have falled through, are you still looking for information?

I need to circle back to you on this one;

Re: Does the Native SDK support Thumb code?

I'm having the same linker problem. I'm developing for Playbook using the BlackBerry Native SDK 2.1, I'm running on Windows. Somebody knows in what ended this topic?
