reset the board and the newly programmed application will start.
+NOTE: It seems that there is a bug on at least some of the on board debuggers.

For debugging: Create a special application with a `while(true)` loop at end of
`bsp_start_hook_1`. Load that application into flash. Then remove the loop
again, build your BSP for SDRAM and use a debugger to load the application into
