Modify RCW on LS1021A-iot

I am hoping to find some guidance on how to modify the RCW for my 1021a-iot system.  I want to enable some GPIO for testing purposes.  I just need some help on how to program the value not the values themselves.    I do not have code warrior and hence no QCVS which is the only mention of how to do this I have found.

I am currently using the SD card as boot location if that makes any difference on the procedure.

Can I change the defaults inthe u-boot  and have the new RCW automatically built by bitbake.

As simply as ...

bitbake -c cleansstate u-boot-ls1

bitbake -c patch u-boot-ls1

bitbake u-boot-ls1

Documents I have found  so far don't seem to address this.  I am pretty new still at yocto and patching etc.. 

Thank You

Bill Anderson

Ufedor, Thanks for the information.  Unfortunately I am unable to either create a working new or recreate the orignal  rcw for the LS102ia-iot using this approach.  From what I have been told the ls1021a iot SDK is not fully integrated yet into Yocto.  I wonder therefore if the build steps might not be different than normal.  The RCW generated for sdboot  is different in several areas.   The values in the ls1021a.rcwi file do not seem complete for instance UART_EXT is not set.  and IFC_GRP_E1_EXT = 4 which is different than the default in the iot sd rcw.  I am using the Freescale-Linux-SDK-for-LS1021A-IOT-Rev2-v0.4-20150907-yocto.iso source.  Any thought where I am going wrong?

Thanks

Bill

I updated the rcw_1000_sdboot.rcw file (below) to add missing and different value corrections. and got what appears to be a sane

rcw_1000_sdboot.bin file

/tmp/work/ls1021aiot-fsl-linux-gnueabi/rcw/git-r0/git/ls1021aiot/SSR_PPN_20> ls

If I proceed to  rebuild u-boot using

bitbake -c cleansstate u-boot-ls1
bitbake -c clean u-boot-ls1
 bitbake -c patch u-boot-ls1 2>&1  > p.out
bitbake  u-boot-ls1 2>&1  > b.out

I notice the rcw directory <tmp>/deploy/images/ls1021aiot/rcw/ls1021aiot/SSR_PPN_20   contains my modified rcw_1000_sdboot.bin

but that the u-boot-ls1021aiot-2014.07-r0.bin created still has old RCW info.  Did I miss a step.

Thanks again

Bill

The above exercise was very useful in learning how to generate the desired RCW but additional steps are required to incorporate the bits.  I have found that the LS1021a-iot SDK uses a different approach to integrate the RCW,  When I finally dissected the u-boot RCW recipe enough to see that in the u-boot <S> directory

which on my system

.../build_ls1021aiot_release/tmp/work/ls1021aiot-fsl-linux-gnueabi/u-boot-ls1/2014.07-r0/git

there is a patch generated file named

board/freescale/ls1021aiot/ls102xa_rcw_sd.cfg

which contains the RCW that u-boot build will use.  This needs to be modified or you will continue to use factory defaults

I did a clean

bitbake -c cleansstate  u-boot-ls1

bitbake -c clean u-boot-ls1
bitbake -c patch u-boot-ls1

I then modified the newly generated board/freescale/ls1021aiot/ls102xa_rcw_sd.cfg  file to match my desired config

and finally I did the build

bitbake u-boot-ls1

Now if anyone can tell me how I can automate this change it would much appreciated. I assume I have to do some sort of post patch repatch.

Thanks

Bill

There are two ways to create/modify RCW.
1) By means of the Yocto Linux SDK
To extract the RCW source code, do the following:
$ bitbake -c cleansstate rcw
$ bitbake -c patch rcw
$ cd <S>
Note: Use bitbake -e rcw | grep ^S= to get the value of <S>.
Modify the default RCW according to the design needs.
To rebuild the RCW package:
$ bitbake rcw
Additional information could be found in the SDK Documentation at:
https://freescale.sdlproducts.com/LiveContent/web/pub.xql?c=t&action=home&pub=QorIQ_SDK&lang=en-US

2) By means of the CodeWarrior Configuration and Validation Suite as an integral part of the CodeWarrior Development Suites for Networked Applications.

Download evaluation version here:

http://www.nxp.com/products/software-and-tools/software-development-tools/codewarrior-development-to... 

NOTE: No license is needed to run the QCVS PBL Tool, so evaluation version is OK.


The RCW could be generated using the PreBootLoader Configuration Tool (PBL) of the CodeWarrior QorIQ Configuration and Validation Suite (QCVS):
