Dear Team,

I am using i.mx6sololite processor for our epos terminal. My question is can i use older version of uboot (NO device tree support  i..e. 2009.08 uboot) wth newer  version of kernel (i..e 3.10 kernel).what are the changes i need to todo .

and one more thing is i want  to load kernel  and dtb file combined .kindly let me know the memory locations changes for uImage loading (3.10 kernel ) with out dtb file loading separately.

Regards,

chandana.

Hi chandana

one can try to debug it using AN4553 Using Open Source Debugging Tools for Linux on i.MX Processors

Best regards

Hi chandana,

You need to change only the u-boot environment. 

Please refer the document.

hi Aravind,

I have gone through the document already.But i need to combine my DTB file along with kernel Image .that too i want to boot uboot 2009.08 with 3.10 kernel.

i have prepared uImage along with dtb but my kernel stucks at starting kernel....and not proceeding further.

so i doubt my uboot environment he am attaching my uboot related stuff.

bootdelay=1
baudrate=115200
loadaddr=0x80800000
rd_loadaddr=0x81000000
netdev=eth0

bootargs_mmc=setenv bootargs ${bootargs} root=/dev/mmcblk0p1 rootwait quiet

first_boot=1
boot_fdt=no
filesize=5164C9
fileaddr=80800000
ipaddr=192.168.2.39

and am stucking at

 bootm
## Booting kernel from Legacy Image at 80800000 ...
   Image Name:   Linux Kernel

   Data Size:    5334153 Bytes =  5.1 MB
