Hi,

as for the credentials, the user name is root and no password should be required.

What do you mean by "the qt5 app"? After boot, a green-white coloured environment should appear and all apps should be there.

Hello Lavakumar,

what is your configuration of S1, S2 and S3 switches?

For booting from SD card should be:

(S1) 0100100000 (from 1-10 bit)

(S2) 0010 (from 1-4 bit)

(S3) 0010 (from 1-4 bit)

Regards,

Jan

hi jan,

thanks for replying.

my switch settings are the same:

(S1) 0100100000 (from 1-10 bit)

(S2) 0010 (from 1-4 bit)

(S3) 0011 (from 1-4 bit)

except for switch 3. is that the problem?

and sd-card inserted at sd/mmc slot in cpu board.

and I am connecting serial cable from UART DEBUG on board to rs232 port in host pc.

Please check and reply.

Regards,

Lavakumar S

Yes, that might be the case. Please change setting of the S3 switch and see if the board boots.

edit: And what is the configuration of boot mode switch?

edit2: Now I noticed, that you mention you used  " u-boot-imx6qsabreauto.imx" image. The .imx file is not an image file. This file contains compiled u-boot which is only one part of the image. The image file has .sdcard extension.

Hi Lavakumar

for  imx6qp u-boot-imx6qpsabreauto_sd.imx should be used.

For programming please use mfg tools

Programmers (Flash, etc.) (2)
IMX6_L4.1.15_MFG_TOOL (REV L4.1.15_1.0.0)
http://www.nxp.com/products/microcontrollers-and-processors/arm-processors/i.mx-applications-process...

use appropriate vbs script,  like mfgtool2-yocto-mx-sabreauto-sdcard-sd3-cpu3.vbs.

Also please check attached Linux Guide sect.4.5 How to boot the i.MX boards

sect.4.3.2 Copying the full SD card image

Best regards

hi ,

thanks for the reply.

I checked the above but still require the procedure to follow.

* required a SD card image which boots up all (u-boot, kernel and Linux ).to test the hardware

The full image should be located in the archive you downloaded. It is the file with "sdcard" in the name and .bz2 extension. For example  fsl-image-gui-x11-imx6qdlsolo.sdcard.bz2. You need to open it, extraxt the .sdcard extension file and load it into an SD card using the dd command or win32 diskimager.
