I used imx6ul evk board (SD card). Following the doc after the command "$ bitbake fsl-image-mfgtool-initramfs", I got the img files (there are so much similar name in the image folder)for mfgtool using. 

Capture.JPG

question 1: I want to confirm is there three files that I need download to SD card? Their names are "u-boot.imx"(not u-boot-imx6ulevk-mfgtool.imx?), "zImage_mfgtool" and "zImage-mfgtool-imx6ul-14*14-evk.dtb"

question 2: Where I can get the "rootfs_nogpu.tar", or I just use the one in "mfgtools-with-rootfs.tar"package?

question 3: How to set the "cfg.ini" in mfgtool folder?

By the way, could you give me a link to download the document about use mfgtool?

Thanks a lot!

Hi shaogang,

About you above 3 quesions, I give you reply one by one, as follows:

Please have a check.

question 1: I want to confirm is there three files that I need download to SD card? Their names are "u-boot.imx"(not u-boot-imx6ulevk-mfgtool.imx?), "zImage_mfgtool" and "zImage-mfgtool-imx6ul-14*14-evk.dtb"

A: Here you need to download u-boot, kernel,dtb, and rootfs files to your sd card. And for mfgtool fimware also need these images for mfgtool. But here you are using our reference board so you do not need to change the mfgtool firmware images, you can directly using the mfgtool supplied in our website, you just need to copy your built images for your target board to mfgtool file.  The command "$ bitbake fsl-image-mfgtool-initramfs" is used for building the images for mfgtool.

question 2: Where I can get the "rootfs_nogpu.tar", or I just use the one in "mfgtools-with-rootfs.tar"package?

A: Here you can use mfgtools-with-rootfs.tar, it's OK.

question 3: How to set the "cfg.ini" in mfgtool folder?

A: You can refer to my above reply to you.
Have a great day,
Rita
