Get Stuck at "Starting kernel ..." linux-imx6-boundary-imx_3.14.52_1.1.0_ga

Contributor I


I tried porting linux kernel (3.14.52) latest version on IMX.6 SABRESDB and  booted using  bootcmd command.

It shows 'Starting the kernel..after that there is no log for the rest of  kernel on serial console.

Output is :

MMC read: dev # 2, block # 2048, count 24576 ... 24576 blocks read: OK         

## Booting kernel from Legacy Image at 10800000 ...                            

   Image Name:   Linux-3.14.52                                                 

   Image Type:   ARM Linux Kernel Image (uncompressed)                         

   Data Size:    6075320 Bytes =  5.8 MB                                       

   Load Address: 10008000                                                      

   Entry Point:  10008000                                                      

   Verifying Checksum ... OK                                                   

   Loading Kernel Image ... OK                                                 



Starting kernel ..

Steps Followed

1) Download source:

2) Compile the source code

   export ARCH=arm

   export CROSS_COMPILE=/opt/freescale/usr/local/gcc-4.6.2-glibc-2.13-linaro-multilib-2011.12/fsl-linaro-toolchain/bin/arm-fsl-linux-gnueabi-

   make imx_v7_defconfig

   make uImage LOADADDR=0x10008000

3) Flash Image and u-Boot to the card

   sudo dd if=u-Boot-mx6q-sabresd-no-padding.bin of=/dev/sdb bs=512 seek=2 conv=fsync  /* u-boot-sabre-boundary-imx_3.0.35_1.1.0 */

   sudo dd if=uImage_ltib of=/dev/sdb bs=512 seek=2048 conv=fsync

4) Copy complete file system from SVN to SD card.

   sudo cp -rpa [A-z]* DESTINATION FOLDER

  Is there any problems with my steps or any thing wrong with -imx6-boundary-imx_3.14.52_1.1.0_ga ?

  Could anyone guide me for this issue.
