1.6 says support boot from NAND, SDIO/MMC/SDXC, eMMC, SPI, USB, QSPI and Ethernet.

6.1 says support boot from SD/MMC and NAND flash.

Hello m.c.

Both are rigth the i.MX8M can boot from NAND, SDIO/MMC/SDXC, eMMC, SPI, USB, QSPI and Ethernet, but the boot ROM suport NAND and SD/MMC, The boot ROM uses the state of the BOOT_MODE and eFUSEs to determine the boot
device. For development purposes, the eFUSEs used to determine the boot device may be overridden using the GPIO pin inputs.

Hi Bio_TICFSL,

i don't get it. 

This thread (https://community.nxp.com/thread/473293) is saying that there is no boot options from QSPI.

So how do i implement booting from QSPI after your statement.

Thanks in advance!

Best regards,

Juergen
