Hi all,

     i have a project , the cpu is imx6ul.   my hardware board 's boot device is EMMC.  i use the plull_up/pull_down resistor to set EMMC 8bit mode (Boot_cfg2[7~5]=110) , then i build my u-boot, zImage and dtb. i use the mfgtool download firmware to my board. all are ok , there is on error happen .  during the downloading , i measured the imx6ul's SDHC2 cmd,clk,d0-d7 all ok . the debug serial have normal log info.

    but after the download, i power on my board ,but the system cann't boot up, the debug serial haven't any info.

finally , i try to change the hardware emmc setting to 1 bit mode ((Boot_cfg2[7~5]=000). then i power on my board, the system can boot up.,the debug serial have booting log . all the function is ok .

    i don't know , why i use 8bit mode to down firmware is successful, i measured the D0-D7 data line are ok , but 

i can't boot up with 8bit mode EMMC.  how to change?   is my u-boot issue? 

   thanks!

I do not think that it is possible to debug such issues without jtag.

Hi chunqiao,

      I have the same issue with you. I can also boot up with 1 bit mode, but when I set 8 bit mode ,there is nothing on my debug serial. Can you tell me the method  how  to solve this problem ? This problem have troubled me for a long time.

I am looking forward to your reply.

     Best regards

Hi chunqiao

in general one can try 4 bit mode. Then check with

oscilloscope all emmc lines, where it fails comparing with good

case. Also one can debug it with jtag using procedure described on

Hi igorpadykov,

    thanks for your quick replay. i already try to modify hardware boot_cfg to 4bit mode.  but also the mfgtool download ok ,but cann't bootup. 

    in 8bit emmc mode. i measured all the emmc line, during downloading , the emmc_clk is 50MHz, D0-D7 have data wave .

when download finished, i power on my board,  i test the emmc_clk is 20MHz, at the same time , only D0 line have data wave,D2-D7 lines are no data wave.   so the system no bootup, the serial havn't any log information.

   sorry , i design my board without  JTAG PIN reserved.

   how do i check my design?  the firmware look like no problem , because i only change the hardware boot_cfg to 1bit, system can boot up , all function is ok.  if the hardware's issue, i checked the boot_cfg pins setting are right.  

  thanks!
