Unable to download img to imx8mm via uuu

I followed the steps to set the imx8mm to SDP mode. Then I connect type C and debug cable to my laptop.

After downloading the android_p.9.0.0 , I started to run uuu uuu-android-mx8mm-evk-emmc.lst

however, the windows command line froze at the following point.

The console output keeps repeating the output for a while and finally stops.

I used to successfully download img to emmc via uuu with one IMX8mm evk board.

However, I failed to do so with another two boards arrived later.

The windows CMD output

uuu (Universal Update Utility) for nxp imx chips -- libuuu_1.2.91-0-g3799f4d

Success 0 Failure 0

1:1 1/ 1 [============100%============] SDP: boot -f u-boot-imx8mm-evk-uuu.imx

The debug console output repeatly:

Thanks everyone.

The problem is resolved after a NXP engineer on site.

The reason is the DDR training part failed during boot.

The engineer changed it to DDR4 from DDR4L and it passed.

Now I can reboot to a SD card

Hi Xin,

the DDR training is one of the first activities running on an 8M-Mini platform. If it fails at this step, then the board could have a problem.

It is easy to make some tests to verify this:

  1. Create an SD card on a PC with either Android or Linux on it and then try to boot the 8MM EVK from this SD card.
  2. Use the DDR test tool to perform some tests for the DDR. Download it here:  https://community.nxp.com/docs/DOC-340179 

In both cases the first activity is this DDR training. If it also fails in this test, then there is a problem with these boards.

Regards,

Bernhard.

Hi, Bernhard

Thanks a lot . I tried this tool 

Sorry I don't know how to create bootable sd from PC for Android, is it possible share a doc with me?

I test can pass when loading script with DDR type = DDR4

But it will fall when loading with DDR type = LPDDR4

Do you think it's because the default uboot comes with the demo image use LPDDR4 instead of DDR4 leads to this issue?

Should I create my own uboot img?

Hi, Igor

Thanks a lot.

I tried the latest version with command :uuu_imx_android_flash.bat -f imx8mm -a -e

I still got the same error output from serial port.

The progress stuck at the 1st one.
