Hi,

I am currently working with Yocto project with warrior branch. I have generated the core-image-base and i am successfully able flash binaries using sdcard. But i want to flash binaries using USB . I have find tools like MFG tool and UUU tools . With these tool comes with pre-build binaries which is pick up by scripts. If i want to flash core-image-base (*.wic.gz fromat ) binaries generated me. As tools scripts doesn't contains steps to flash ".wic" fromat file flashing.

1. how can i Flash *.wic.gz fromat binaries on IMX6 Solo using USB OTG.

2. What modification do i need to do to flash binaries please suggest.

Thanks

Hi Amit

one can look at uuu script example uuu.auto-imx6solosabresd included in Demo Image

Linux Binary Demo Files - i.MX 6QuadPlus, i.MX 6Quad, i.MX 6DualLite, i.MX 6SoloX

also may be useful [yocto] How to extract files from wic.gz image?

Hi Amit

 

for customised board new image should be built, uuu script example 

can be modified as it uses board file names.

Hi igorpadykov,

Now we have custom board with imx6 solo and no binaries are flashed on it.

Do i need to flash pre-build binaries or first need to build custom binaries and flash .

With the Porting Guide i am little bit confused .Can provide me a step by step procedure need to follow to flash image on custom board.

Thanks

Amit
