What is the Endianness of the core after reset?

Applies to: ARM926EJ-S

Answer

Applies to : ARM926EJ-S

The endianess is set via the BIGENDINIT input pin, which determines the value of the B bit (bit 7 of CP15 r1) at reset. The B bit may be changed by software if required. The current endianess is indicated by  the CFGBIGEND output pin.
