Download .sdcard image for i.MX6sx SabreSDB using MFGTool

I followed the Yocto Training up until Task #4 - Deploy and test.... and I got stuck here.

I am not able to download the .sdcard image to my SD card. Do I need to format it first? It is brand new.

Since the sudo dd if=core-image-base-imx6solosabresd.sdcard of=/dev/sdb1 bs=1M did not work for me, I was not able to boot from the SD on my board. The board switches are set to boot from SD4. Is imx6solosabresd the correct MACHINE to use for the solox? I tried setting MACHINE=imx6sxsabersd in the local.conf file but I got an error message (Task #2).

This is why I want to try the MFGTool. I have set the board to boot from SD3 so it can go into "download mode". When I go through the MFGTool, it says No Device Connected although HID-compliant vendor-defined device shows up.

Hi JAVIER

for i.MX6SX image should be like: fsl-image-gui-x11-imx6sxsabresd.sdcard,

file core-image-base-imx6solosabresd.sdcard is for Solo processor which is

different from SoloX.

Best regards

igor

Hi Igor,

When I run the command "source setup-environment build" I get the following results:


Common targets are:

     core-image-minimal

     meta-toolchain

     meta-toolchain-sdk

     adt-installer

     meta-ide-support


Your build environment has been configured with:


     MACHINE=imx6qsabresd

     SDKMACHINE=i686

     DISTRO=poky

     EULA=1


Where can I find the fsl-image-gui-x11-imx6sxsabresd.sdcard?


Also, my .conf files do not include "imx6sxsabresd." What should I set MACHINE to? MACHINE=?


Thanks.

You can use the FSL Community BSP Fido branch (with 3.14 kernel) if you want.

1.

  You wrote : "sudo dd if=core-image-base-imx6solosabresd.sdcard of=/dev/sdb1 bs=1M did not work for me ..."

How it is possible ? What is system (error) message for this command ?

You may try using flashnul utility

RPi Easy SD Card Setup - eLinux.org

2.

  For MFG special serial (USB) boot mode should be used. When SD3 is set for boot,

please remove SD card from the slot in order the bootROM enters the serial boot mode as result

of error during SD boot.

Have a great day,
Yuri

sudo dd if=core-image-base-imx6solosabresd.sdcard of=/dev/sdb1 bs=1M

you need to remove the 1 from sdb to get it to work I think.

sudo dd if=core-image-base-imx6solosabresd.sdcard of=/dev/sdb bs=1M

I can't get mine to boot either by the way so my advice above may be incorrect.

But try removing the 1 anyway.

Hope this helps.
