How to restore RCW & U-boot of T4240QDS-PB

Hi,

I've a T4240QDS-PB board and experienced an unexpected operation which corrupt RCW&U-boot from the onboard NOR Flash, I brick it. During the past time, I tried to restore the images lost for NOR flash but it didn't work. I have two debuggers: USBTAP and lauterbach PowerDebug USB 3, which I supposed could be used to flash images. 

My question is does anyone experience such issue and instructs me how to restore it? Much appreciate!!

1) select I2C as RCW source by setting SW1[1:8] + SW2[1] = 0_0100_1001 (I2C ext. addr.)

2) use CodeWarrior Flash Programmer to program complete NOR Flash image (128MB) from the "QorIQ Linux SDK v2.0 PPC64E6500 IMAGE.iso".

Hi ufedor,

I fixed the CCS error issue. But it still doesn't work when programming flash image. I use PowerDebug to view the Flash contents, it shows 0xfeffffff instead of 0xffffffff after I erase a sector. I guess some h/w issue cause this problem.

Hi ufedor,

Thanks for your reply. I tried your instruction but I still got some error. 

The first instruction for RCW I supposed it was work and I can attach the T4240QDS board via PowerDebug USB3, which failed to attach target with default RCW location (0_0010_1111). 

The second instruction didn't work yet. I use Flash Programmer of CodeWarrior IDE and create a USBTAP target connection with default T4240QDS template. When I erase and program Flash image, it print errors message at console below and hang: 

fl::target -lc "LC for Simple Flash (2)"
fl::target -b 0x0 0x180000
fl::target -v off -l off
cmdwin::fl::device -d "S29GL01GP" -o "64Mx16x1" -a 0xe8000000 0xefffffff
cmdwin::fl::image -f "C:\\T32_USB3\\demo\\powerpc64bit\\hardware\\qoriq_t4\\t4240qds\\wwj\\QorIQ_SDK_V2.0_T4240QDS_20160527_NOR_Flash.bin" -t "Auto Detect" -re on -r 0xe8000000 0xefffffff -oe on -o 0xe8000000
cmdwin::fl::erase image

Could you please look further into it, many thanks.
