Does anyone have the Android BSP (Freescale-iMX53-QSB-Android 2.3-Version 4.0) for IMX53 quick start board? The Adeano/NXP (i.MX53 Quick Start Board|NXP ) sites redirect to Witekio. After registering and requesting for the BSP (marked as Free), I got an email with an FTP download link which shows no content. I have put a question on Witekio contact and another on Witekio Facebook page, with no response. The email is copied below:

Thanks for your interest in Witekio’s Board Support Packages. 

Please use the following access credentials to download the following file i.MX 53_Android_BSP from our FTP server:

URL : https://files.witekio.com/

Login : FSL-iMX53-QSB-AND

Password : Y507nit

(1) Does someone have the BSP previously downloaded? It will be great if you can upload somewhere and share a link.

(2) Since the QSB board is a different hardware compared to the IMC53 SABRE tablet, I am guessing the Android BSP for SABRE (available for download from NXP) is not compatible with the QSB without modifications. Has anyone tried this?

Thanks!

Hi,

I need help in fixing the below error. I tried to run the patch_android script and I get the below error. Has anyone seen this error before?

warning: 27 lines add whitespace errors.

fatal: corrupt patch at line 172

Hi,

I would also advise you to download the latest release (r4.2) from our website as it addresses the change of servers (from kernel.org to linaro)

Hi

When run the download script it will created the folder src under  {ROOT_DIR} same level as script or download.

inside  src you will Android stack folders like bionic etc. also kernel_imx folder for linux kernel.

Also uboot will go under bootoader folder.

Actually its not android web site. This is a little tricky. Android uses a tool called repo on top git. And repo knows where to connect for repositories. 

As Remi commented you would better use  latest sources from Adeneo because the links for Android repo's are updated.

I think now it use repo to download the android source code from the "android website"

and the other question is the target source code will download to where 

it show the below message

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 cp /home/victor/FSL-iMX53-QSB-DROID_ANDROID_FOR_FREESCALE_v4.0/Freescale-iMX53-QSB-Android2.3-Version4.0/i.MX53-QSB-Android-Gingerbread-Release4.0/src/.repo/repo/repo /home/victor/FSL-iMX53-QSB-DROID_ANDROID_FOR_FREESCALE_v4.0/Freescale-iMX53-QSB-Android2.3-Version4.0/i.MX53-QSB-Android-Gingerbread-Release4.0/src/repo

Hi

I think reason is the space in path:

home/victor/FSL-iMX53-QSB-DROID_ANDROID_FOR_FREESCALE_v4.0/Freescale-iMX53-QSB-Android(remove this space here)2.3-Version 4.0

if you remove the space script will go on working..

Script “download_android.sh”  tries to download sources from Android repo, using old links,
so, please just use the script as an example for manual loading (with correct links) and further processing. 

Also the next forum link may be useful :
