1. Follow all steps from Freescale's github repo except the last bitbake command

2. The images that Freescale supports are located on the meta-fsl-demos/recipes-fsl/images folder.

3. Bake the standard Freescale image

build$ bitbake fsl-image-gui


4. The produced Linux image is packaged in several formats; the .sdcard single file has all the system (u-boot + uImage + rootfs) so it can be directly flashed into an SD card

build$ sudo dd if=tmp/deploy/images/fsl-image-gui-imx6qsabresd.sdcard of=/dev/sdX bs=4M


  • In case of building issues, please follow this link
  • In case of booting issues, make sure: 1. board DIP switches are set correctly 2. you have chosen the correct machine before baking
  • If issues persist, report it to the community
