U-boot is a bootloader responsible for hardware initialization, loading and booting linux kernel. It is also used for module flashing.

Build

Set toolchain

Export toolchain variables for every related terminal session.

Initial steps

Create working directory

mkdir -pv ~/workdir/imx6/bootloader/

Set shell variables

U-Boot v2015.04

Download & Extract source code

cd ~/workdir/imx6/bootloader/
git clone -b uboot-imx-v2015.04 --single-branch https://github.com/voipac/uboot-imx uboot-imx-v2015.04-rex
cd uboot-imx-v2015.04-rex

Compile

Output file is called u-boot.imx.

How to Flash new version

Steps

SPI - from U-boot

setenv ipaddr 192.168.0.150
setenv serverip 192.168.0.1
mw.b 0x10800000 0xFF 0x80000
tftp 0x10800000 imx6/u-boot-imx6-openrex*.imx
if sf probe 2:2; then sf erase 0x0 0x80000;sf write 0x10800000 0x400 0x7fc00; fi

SATA - from U-boot

setenv ipaddr 192.168.0.150
setenv serverip 192.168.0.1
mw.b 0x10800000 0xFF 0x80000
tftp 0x10800000 imx6/u-boot-imx6-openrex*sata.imx
if sata init; then sata write 0x10800000 0x2 0x3ff; fi

SATA - from Linux

sudo dd if=u-boot-imx6-openrex*sata.imx of=/dev/sdx bs=512 seek=2 conv=fsync
