Hi Benjamin,

The debugserver protocol is a modified version of the gdbserver protocol.
I _think_ the only difference is that it supports more packet types, but I don't think there's a document on them.

Your best bet would be to browse the tools/debugserver/source directory. Specifically RNBRemote.cpp.
