Hi,

I am currently working on U-Boot source code.

I have to change the uboot environment variables saving to SDCARD instead i have to store into FLASH.

I would like to know what are the changes i have to do to save it to FLASH.

board specific header file contains the below macro

#define CONFIG_ENV_IS_IN_MMC

I think may be i have replace the above line with #define CONFIG_ENV_IS_IN_FLASH

Still any changes i have to do to save uboot environment variables.

I have also added the FLASH base address and OFFSET and environment size.

Please give any suggestion to save it to FLASH.

Thanks & Regards,

Ramanjineyulu.

Hi Ramanjineyulu

you are right, for saving uboot environment variables in flash it is sufficient to
set #define CONFIG_ENV_IS_IN_FLASH, no other changes in uboot sources
are necessary.

Hi Igor,

Thanks for your reply.

Below are the changes in board specific header file.

#define CONFIG_ENV_IS_IN_FLASH

#define CONFIG_SYS_FLASH_BASE CONFIG_SYS_FSL_FLASH0_BASE

#define FLASH_SECTOR_SIZE 0x40000

#define CONFIG_SYS_MAX_FLASH_BANKS 1
#define CONFIG_ENV_SIZE (0x2000) /* 8 KB */
#define CONFIG_ENV_SECT_SIZE (FLASH_SECTOR_SIZE) /* 256 KB */
#define CONFIG_SYS_MAX_FLASH_SECT (0x4000000 / CONFIG_ENV_SECT_SIZE)
#define CONFIG_ENV_OFFSET 2 * CONFIG_ENV_SECT_SIZE

I have comment MMC related macros.

When i have compiled the source code am getting the below error.

u-boot/common/board_r.c:364: undefined reference to `flash_init'
common/built-in.o: In function `addr2info':

u-boot/common/flash.c:95: undefined reference to `flash_info'

Segmentation fault (core dumped)
Makefile:1207: recipe for target 'u-boot' failed

Could you please help on this.

Thanks & Regards,

Ramanjineyulu Thota.
