What do you mean with blocked? Does it mean the call to TwMasterTransact
never returns even when given a timeout? That should never happen. Are you
sure your hardware works flawless? Maybe your transaction on the I2C bus
has some unexpected side effect, disturbing the CPU. Did you check with a
scope/logoc analyzer that your transaction does take place and is terminated
Much to check ...
