Failed to flash scfw on imx8qxp mek

Hi NXP,

We are using iMX8QXP MEK for development. We are trying to flash SECO(Security firmware) and SCFW(System Firmware) in the eMMC using uuu utility. As per the reference manual SECO and SCFW are initial firmware to flash to wakeup processors.

Below are the steps which we have followed:
1. We have generated the SECO using https://www.nxp.com/lgfiles/NMG/MAD/YOCTO/imx-seco-3.6.3.bin link
- Generate "mx8qxb0-ahab-container.img" file by executing "imx-seco-3.6.3.bin "

2. We have generated the SCFW for linux-5.4.24_2.1.0 using https://www.nxp.com/webapp/Download?colCode=L5.4.24_2.1.0_SCFWKIT-1.5.0&appType=license link
- toolchain: gcc-arm-none-eabi-9-2019-q4-major
- build using: make qx R=B0 B=mek(Executed command in scfw_export_mx8qx_b0 directory)
- scfw_tcm.bin will be generated in "imx-scfw-porting-kit-1.5.0/packages/imx-scfw-porting-kit-1.5.0/src/scfw_export_mx8qx_b0/build_mx8qx_b0/”

3. We have generated flash.bin using below steps
    $ git clone https://source.codeaurora.org/external/imx/imx-mkimage
    $ cd imx-mkimage
    $ git checkout imx_5.4.24_2.1.0 (Note: choose appropriate linux kernel branch)
    - copy scfw_tcm.bin, mx8qx-ahab-container.image to ~/imx-mkimage/iMX8QX folder
    $ make SOC=iMX8QX flash

Below are the flash steps:

# sudo ./uuu -b emmc flash.bin

=====================================================================

Firmware flash failed while using uuu utility.

I am attaching scfw_tcm.bin(SCFW), mx8qxb0-ahab-container.img(SECO) and flash.bin in binaries.zip which I have generated for iMX8QXP MEK.

Can you please help us to resolve this issue.

Version is B0 and we are able to run the stress test successfully.

We tried building the image using "make SOC=iMX8QX flash_spl" and it is working on mek

Hi tejas-volansys

 

from log: "uuu_version 1.2.39",

for linux-5.4.24_2.1.0 all versions of software components should

be carefully aligned according to   i.MX Linux Release Notes

Hi igor,

We have tried with uuu version 1.3.191 and now flash is getting stuck after showing 100%. Below is the log for the same

Note: We were using uuu version 1.3.171 previously. I think "uuu_version 1.2.39" is hard-coded in "uuu/emmc_burn_loader.lst" file
