We have the iMX8QuadXPlus MEK CPU Board.

We followed the below steps to enable Secure Storage TA on this board.

Step 1: Built the Android image for the same using the android_p9.0.0_2.3.4 package.

Step 2: Flashed the trusty image using the following command:

 

./uuu_imx_android_flash.sh -f imx8qxp -a -e -u trusty-c0

 

Step 3: The board boots successfully.

Step 4: Entered the fastboot mode using reboot bootloader command on the target

Step 5: Tried to enable the Secure Storage using the following commands

 

root@XXXX:/android_build/out/target/product/mek_8q# fastboot stage rpmb_key_test.bin
target reported max download size of 419430400 bytes
sending 'rpmb_key_test.bin' (0 KB)...
OKAY [  0.028s]
finished. total time: 0.028s
root@XXXX://android_build/out/target/product/mek_8q# fastboot oem set-rpmb-key
...
OKAY [  0.152s]
finished. total time: 0.152s
root@test-Precision-3630-Tower:/home/nanduser/nishad_2_3_4/android_build/out/target/product/mek_8q#

 

Step 6: Got the following output :

 

Starting download of 36bytes

downloading of 36 bytes finished
RPMB key programmed successfully!
RPMB key blob generated!

 

Step 7: After reboot we see following error:

 

avb: 265: Error: missing public key file [0]
avb.c:108: ERROR avb_do_tipc: AVB service returned error (2)
fsl_validate_vbmeta_public_key_rpmb: Read public key error
avb_slot_verify.c:783: ERROR: vbmeta_a: Public key used to sign data rejected.
resetting ...

 

Step 9: The board then reboots again automatically.

How do I recover from this ?

Thanks you for your time,

Nishad

Hi nishadkamdar

 

one can try to set public key as described in sect.3.3.3 Generating AVB key to sign and verify images

i.MX_Android_Security_User_Guide included in P9.0.0_2.3.4  release package.

$ fastboot oem set-public-key

Hello Igor,

Thanks for the quick reply.

I tried the following steps and could boot the board:

Step 1: Flash the rpmb key.

Step 2: Reboot the board.

Step 3: Stop in uboot.

Step 4: enter fastboot mode using fastboot 0 command

Step 5: Flash the AVB public key.

Step 6: reboot the board

The boards boots successfully now.

Thanks and regards,

Nishad
