Can anybody help me understand the step-by-step process to migrate and boot a custom kernel currently running on the Freescale i.MX28 development kit to a i.MX280 custom board?
BTW, I'm new to microprocessors and Linux. My experience is primarily with Windows and PIC micro-controllers.
We have hardware designed to...
Thanks for the help,
As a first step, I would say you need to port a bootloader to your board. U-boot is commonly used.
Take a look at mx28 support in U-boot.
After you have the bootloader running, then you need to add your board into the kernel.
You can use FSL 2.6.35 or if you want a more recent one, then you can use 3.17, which uses device tree and would probably do the porting process a lot easier.
Thanks Fabio. We will work on this part right now. I'm actually trying to outline a detailed step-by-step understanding of the process as a whole; like a flow chart or step-by-step instructions that would allow a layman like myself to understand what to do next.
