kobs-ng on i.mx6 (solo)

Hi All,

Is there a version of kobs-ng (running 1.2) that supports the dump command on an i.mx6 part?  The current code is looking for NCB blocks instead of FCB which looks like it is for other i.mx parts.  I have found a few references to this topic for other i.mx processors but none relating to the i.mx6.

Hello Jim,

For i.mx6, you need the latest kobs-ng which version is 1.3 or above. I have attached the version 1.3 here. Please use this one to replace your version 1.2.

Regards,

Peter

Hi Peter,

I tried the kobs-ng you attached on my mx6solo board. After kobs-ng init -v u-boot.bin, kobs-ng dump show fingerprints mismatch:

For clarification, is version 1.3 needed for the dump command on i.MX6 or is 1.3 needed for i.MX6 period?  Also, I would also like the source code for version 1.3 if possible.  Thanks.

kobs-ng version 1.3 is required for i.MX6.

I am sorry I can't release the kobs-ng source code here.

The source code of kobs-ng version 1.3 is now available in Linux BSP release L3.0.35_4.1.0_130816. After installing the LTIB, type command "litb -m prep -p kobs-ng" to get the source code.

The kobs-ng utility helps to program the u-boot to the NAND flash. It is usually run in the manufacturing tool and you can refer to the ucl2.xml in update profile in manufacturing tool for an example.

Both BSP and manufacturing tool can be downloaded at www.freescale.com.

Hi Peter,

Is there any chance I can get the source code for this version?  In the latest BSP release, the 1.2 version of kobs-ng is still the current version.

Thanks,

How To Find LTIB L3.0.35_4.1.0_130816 with kobs-ng source code

The Freescale website does an excellent job of obfuscating this information. However, I found it by:

  1. i.MX 6 Series Software and Development Tool Resources
  2. Click on "Source Code for i.MX 6Quad/Dual"

After clicking through the license agreement, the LTIB L3.0.35_4.1.0_130816 download starts.

The direct link is in this post: i.MX 6 Q/D L3.0.35_1.1.0 GA release

Too bad the Freescale people on this site couldn't provide this information as a basic courtesy to their user commuity.

Best regards,
