AMP boot ARM iMX6

Hi all,

I'm working with an ARM Cortex A9 iMX6 with two CPUs and I would like to run two different O.S. (yocto, debian or other linux distribution in one core and freeRTOS in the other).

Actually I have downloaded the Uboot sources code from git repository

uboot-imx.git - Freescale i.MX u-boot Tree 

but I have very few experience in the Uboot programming and I like to have some advices about it.

I would like to run two O.S. without an Hypervisor but using uboot only. Is that possible?

Thanks in advice for help.
