If so, what is the:

  • Android version?
  • MFGTool Version?
  • u-boot file (with padding or no padding)?
  • MFGtool Profile?
  • Dip Switch Position?

Oh my ...

The problem was: Using windows in a VMWare to execute MFGTool :smileysad:

Moving to a native Windows all went well :smileysad:

When we will have a MFGTool for Linux? That would save time from everyone.

Well... I was the problem :smileysad:

thanks all.

Have you consulted the attached manual? See 5.1.1 for dip switch settings. Either of the Android images you have should work witht he iMX6q.

Yes, have you seen my 2 other comments?

I'm using that manual and have tried all the dip switch combinations for eMMC.

The actual questions is, have you got Android prebuilt working on your SabreSd?

Rafael,

Yes, it does work. I tried it last week.

For JB4.2.2_1.1.0 on eMMC, please make sure you do the following:

1) Modifiy cfg.ini so that it reads:

[profiles]

chip = MX6Q Linux Update

[platform]

board = SabreSD

[LIST]

name = Android-SabreSD-eMMC

2) Add the following files to Profiles\MX6Q Linux Update\OS Firmware\files\android\

MT_JB422_110_eMMC\Profiles\MX6Q Linux Update\OS Firmware\files\android\

boot.img                                      0401522ad9e88884ed763c09ebe8aa62

recovery.img                                  610e5314cf031257f6d0b753485492e2

system.img                                    f59a1aa27e4f06fe383677b1a88b9b68

u-boot-6q.bin                                 c6ba5fc0ff25e98c552a51f62e8aa4e6

Please make sure your md5sum values match mine.

Please also note that we have JellyBean 4.3_1.1.0 on our website (and Kit Kat 4.4.2_1.0.0 is available through our sales force).

Regards,

Rod.

RodBorras What version of MFGTool are you using? I got Mfgtool rel 13.01.01 ER MX6q UPDATER

Rafael, I am using the version that comes with the BSP:

f67f77c814fa283283f0d3e02690ea87  Mfgtools-Rel-13.01.00_ER_MX6Q_UPDATER.tar.gz

Android creates a very complex set of partitions, and I have seen the MFGTool struggle with that on some (5%) SD cards.

So if I were in your shoes, this is what I would try:

  1. Try a simple Linux BSP with the MFGTool: this only creates 1 partition.
  2. Try JB with MFGTool on an SD card instead of the eMMC. If this fails, wipe the SD card clean, and try again, or try a different brand.
  3. If 2) works, then wipe the eMMC clean, and try this again.

Hi Rod,

odd, i have checked my files and they are ok.

In the user guide it says I should set the switches to 00001100 so I have tried with your suggestion (00000000) however it still doesn't show up anything.

There is one issue though, during MFGTool process, just before partitioning, windows identifies the board as a E: driver and tries to mount it. That moment the mfgtool fails. I close it and restart it and then the process completes... is it related to the problem?

Here is the log from the execution:

Hello Rafael,

I have flashed android (both 4.2.2 and 4.3) to the eMMC with the settings you show.  Are you setting the dip switches to 00000000 when you flash the board?, make sure you do not have an SD connected to the board when flashing it.

What about linux, does it work when you flash the eMMC?

I'm using:

  • Android jb4.2.2_1.1.0 sabresd
  • MFTool: Rel-4.1.0_130816_MX6Q_UPDATER
  • u-boot with or without padding
  • Android-SabreSD-eMMC
  • Dip Switch set to 8bit MMC3 11010110

And it DOES NOT work.

Also tried with:

  • Android jb4.3_1.0.0-ga_image_6qsabresd
  • MFTool: Rel-4.1.0_130816_MX6Q_UPDATER
  • u-boot with or without padding
  • Android-SabreSD-eMMC
  • Dip Switch set to 8bit MMC3 11010110

And it DOES NOT work either.
