Thanks Igor,

I have another board, this is iMX6 EVK

Board: MX6SX SABRE SDB

This is currently running linux ver 4.9.88.

1) Need to download the ARM toolchain,

2) Download the linux kernel source

3) build an image

4) need to upgrade / flash the newly built image to boot up the board.

Could you also point me to the documentation to get the above listed items done as well for iMX6?

Thanks in advance. Attaching a picture & HW Info for reference.

Hello Ramesh,

You can start to read the user guide to make your EVB work:

https://www.nxp.com/document/guide/getting-started-with-i-mx-6-solox-sabre:GS-RD-IMX6SX-SABRE

 

Then you can read all the proper documentation with latest BSP.
