How to prepare SD card with ls1043a-rgw ?

Contributor II


I want to load an SD card with the latest images from NXP for our LS1043A-RGW.

I'm reading the steps on how to prepare the SD card for the LS1043A-RGW, and it doesn't make sense to me from step 3.  I don't see a 'iram' file.  Also, we've also been using the 1043ARDB, baking our own images, and loading kernel-fsl-ls1043a-rdb.itb and fsl-image-full-ls1043ardb.tar.gz to the SD card.  I don't see those file in the binary distribution.



from QorIQ LS1043A Residential Gateway (RGW) Getting Started Guide, Rev. 1, 10/2016 :


Preparing SD card Flash the required images to an empty (without any partitions) Micro SD card using a Linux environment. Assuming that your SD card is attached on /dev/sdc.

Use the following commands to:

1. Copy the U-Boot to SD card sudo dd if=u-boot-sdcard.bin of=/dev/sdc bs=512 seek=8 && sync

2. Copy the fman code to SD card sudo dd if=fsl_fman_ucode_ls1043_r1.0_108_4_9.bin of=/dev/sdc bs=512 seek=1500 && sync

3. Copy the Microcode to SD card sudo dd if=iram_Type_A_LS1021a_r1.0.bin of=/dev/sdc bs=512 seek=1580 && sync
