HIiiiiiiiii

I am  working on mx53 QSB. I want to download the demo image file in micro SD card. For this purpose I download L2.6.35_11.09.01_ER_images_mx5x.tar but can not find the document how to load this demo image file in micro SD card. Please give me a procedure to load this file in micro SD card.

Second point is that I want to create our own  image file, for this purpose I install LTIB and follow the procedure given in mx53 start linux bsp user guide upto 2.2.

But after that I can't understand what is the next procedure to create image file and load in micro SD card. On my host PC OS is ubuntu 10.04(32 bit).

  Thank you

swapneel

1.

Please use the MFG tool to deploy the image(s).
Use section 5 (Downloading Images Using MFG Tool) of  "i.MX53_START_Linux_BSP_UserGuide.pdf".

2.

Please use section 7 (Using a Linux Host to Set Up an SD/MMC Card) of "i.MX53_START_Linux_BSP_UserGuide.pdf".

Hiii

The other member of freescale community said that the MFG tool works only on windows. Is this correct? Then how to load the demo image file(L2.6.35_11.09.01_ER_images_mx5x.) to micro SD card on linux.?Please give me a step by step procedure to load this file.

2. For second point can I jump directly section 7 after 2.2 ?Is any step in between these is needed  to 

create our own image file?

1.
Yes, there is no MFG version for Linux.

2.
The section 7 may be used separately, assuming a reader has some Linux basic experience.

Dear sir,

I install LTIB .As per the mx53 start linux bsp user guide.pdf in

step 2.2 upto step install one package to rootfs 

(./ltib -m scdeploy -p u-boot) done successfully.

After that I go to section 7  using a linux host to set up an

microSD card. complete all the steps (screen shots are attached

here).

Then go to step 8.2 Run the image from MMC/SD. In that I connect vga

display to QSB. Connect serial port to my windows PC and configure it

to 115200-8-N-1 . press "POWER " key to power up the board but it

does not show any thing on VGA display as well as on hyperterminal.

Please check the attachment and guide me what is the problem

Thank you

Please try the next command

sudo dd if=u-boot.bin of=/dev/sdb bs=512 seek=2 skip=2&& sync && sync

in order to get bootable SD.

For assurance u-boot from demo image may be used.

  Please pay attention, the U-boot can be provided in two options :

with and without padding.

Please look at section 2.5 (How to generate no-padding U-Boot) of

i.MX53_START_Linux_BSP_UserGuide.pdf

To generate no-padding U-Boot, run:

sudo dd if=u-boot.bin of=u-boot-mx53-loco-no-padding.bin bs=512 skip=2

U-boot with padding contains two 512-blocks zone at the beginning.

   When such U-boot is written to SD, using command dd, SD partition table will

be destroyed. But after writing U-boot and kernel via the dd command, it is

recommended to create new partition on the SD again, assuming, that the first

blocks, which contains U-boot and kernel must not be overlapped by the

partition. Therefore partition should be created skipping U-boot and kernel

zone. The partition information will be located in the first block of SD  this

block does not cover U-boot  significant information.

From section 6.3 (Use i.MX53 as Host Server to Create rootfs) :

the rootfs partition should be located after kernel image; the first 0x800000

bytes can be reserved for MBR, bootloader, and kernel sections.

After that insert the microSD card in mx53 QSB ,connect serial port

and configure it to 115200-8-N-1. connect VGA monitor to QSB.

connect power supply and press POWER switch so blue led on. but It

does not show any thing on hyper terminal also on VGA display. I

given command BBG U-Boot > printenv given in DOC-1554 but it does not

get this command. 

I attach my complete procedure which i done in command promt  from
