I am using i.MX 8M SOM (nitrogen8M of Boundary Device), this SOM has only inbuilt eMMC chip as a memory device. I have checked steps to flash the image to eMMC of SOM, all of them suggesting to flash a U-Boot to SD card and through the flashed U-Boot copy the build image to eMMC.
Since my SOM does have any SD card slot, I am need of a way to flash the image directly to eMMC chip. Please help me with step by step guide to achieve this.
you can use uuu tool to download image to the sd card, I'm not sure if your demo image includes uuu file or auto file, if you have it, download uuu tool from the link as below, put them under the same folder, then use the command "uuu.exe <auto file or uuu file>" under Windows
I want to flash image in the eMMC of nitrogen8M of Boundary Device, not to the SD card. I have followed following steps as suggested in boundary device website
minicomfor Linux or
U-Boot > ums mmc 0
But after "ums mmc 0", i didnt see any flash drive attached to pc. I have also tried with "ums 0 mmc 0", it didn't work.
Please hep me with this, am i missing any procedure?
I don't know if you ever got this figured out, I was able to get my IMX8 to be recognized by Ubuntu by issuing the following command after stopping U-Boot autostart:
ums 0 mmc 1
However, this only works if the eMMC has previously been partitioned.
if you can use UUU, the command I said that download image to sd card, in fact, can work for emmc too, if you use command without emmc, ums <USB_controller> [<devtype>] <dev [part]> ， did you try ums 1 mmc 0?
