Hi Kuba,

It can be done with mspdebug (flash-bsl driver), but I haven't needed
to do it myself. There is some documentation available from TI about
the bootstrap loader ("MSP430 Memory Programming User's Guide", I
think). You'll also need to check the chip datasheet to see which pins
you need for BSL communication and entry.

You'll probably want to check this, but I'm fairly sure that a mass
erase won't touch the Info A segment, which is the one containing
calibration data. The other info segments are for user data.
