Follow these steps to update the composite firmware image in QSPI NOR flash.
means that the alternate bank will be written to. So, if the board boots from QSPI NOR flash0 and is entered at the U-Boot prompt, the commands that follow will program QSPI NOR flash1.
LSDK includes pre-built firmware images for QSPI NOR flash. The LSDK composite firmware includes RCW+PBI, U-Boot/UEFI, PPA, boot loader environment variables, DPAA1 FMan ucode, QE/uQE firmware, Ethernet PHY firmware, device tree, and lsdk_linux_<arch>.itb images.
On a Linux host machine, download composite firmware image for QSPI boot from nxp.com.
$ wget http://www.nxp.com/lgfiles/sdk/lsdk<LSDK version>/firmware_<RDB_name>_uboot_qspiboot.img
Composite firmware image can be loaded to LS1046ARDB from a TFTP server or from a mass storage device (SD, USB, or SATA).
In boot log, you’ll see:
Board: LS1046ARDB, boot from QSPI vBank 0
