How to boot T4240RDB with rootfs on NAND?

105 Views

I have T4240RDB board with 2048 MB NAND.

I can boot the board with Linux rootfs (built from NXP Linux SDK/Yocto) on SDCARD (u-boot on NOR). But I don't know how to product/write Linux rootfs to NAND and configure u-Boot to boot Linux from NAND.

Please help me.

This is my board u-boot messages:

Please configure Linux Kernel as the following

File systems --->

       Miscellaneous filesystems --->

            <*> Journaling Flash File System v2 (JFFS2) support

            (0) JFFS2 debugging verbosity

            [*] JFFS2 write-buffering support

Define NAND partitions similar as the following

nand@2,0 {
#address-cells = <1>;
#size-cells = <1>;
compatible = "fsl,ifc-nand";
reg = <0x2 0x0 0x10000>;

partition@0 {
/* This location must not be altered */
/* 1MB for u-boot Bootloader Image */
reg = <0x0 0x00100000>;
label = "NAND U-Boot Image";
read-only;
};

partition@100000 {
/* 1MB for DTB Image */
reg = <0x00100000 0x00100000>;
label = "NAND DTB Image";
};

partition@200000 {
/* 10MB for Linux Kernel Image */
reg = <0x00200000 0x00A00000>;
label = "NAND Linux Kernel Image";
};

partition@C00000 {
/* 500MB for Root file System Image */
reg = <0x00c00000 0x1F400000>;
label = "NAND RFS Image";
};

Under u-boot:

=> tftp 0x10000000 uImage

=> nand erase 200000 +$filesize

=> nand write 0x10000000 200000  $filesize

=> tftp 0x10000000 t4240rdb.dtb

=> nand erase 100000 +$filesize

=> nand write 0x10000000 100000  $filesize

After boot up Linux

flash_eraseall /dev/mtd4

mount -t jffs2 /dev/mtdblock4 /mnt

Deploy rootfs.tar.gz to /mnt folder

Under u-boot:

=>setenv bootargs root=/dev/mtdblock4 rootfstype=jffs2 rw console=ttyS0,115200

=>nand read 0x10000000  200000  <uImage_size>

=>nand read 0x20000000 100000    <dtb_size>

=>bootm 0x10000000 - 0x20000000
