We only have the Samsung MCU in the JTAG chain.

We use our own debug board. You need a special flexible cable to
connect to JTAG (*), and our board has the corresponding connector.

(*) In a phone, there isn't nearly enough space for one of the JTAG
    connectors you have on eval boards and the like. You could
    probably roll you own, though, and use some other JTAG adapter,
    e.g., the cute little Amontec JTAGkey.

On the software side, we use OpenOCD.
