u-boot eMMC image for MCIMX6Q-SDB (i.MX SABRE boards)

I have been trying unsuccessfully for weeks trying to get a u-boot emmc configuration image for the MACHINE=imx6qsabresd.   Has anyone ever been successful with this?   I have gotten the sdCard image, zImage, rootfs but when I try to do the u-boot configuration (as in Section 5.5 for Freescale Yocto Project User's Guid, Rev. 0, 04/2016). 

After I run the

DISTRO=fsl-imx-fb MACHINE=imx6qsabresd source fsl-setup-release.sh -b Q6-14.1.15

bitbake core-image-base

let it run and it gives me all the files, except does not like the SD card which is expected because my conf/local.conf has

UBOOT_CONFIG="emmc"

Then I do the bitbake for u-boot-imx

I get the follow:

amraam@nxp-System-Product-Name:~/fsl-release-bsp/Q6-14.1.15$ MACHINE=imx6qsabresd bitbake -c deploy u-boot-imx

Hello,

 

 You may use demo images on the Web.

i.MX 6 Series Software and Development Tool|NXP 

 

"i.MX_Linux_User's_Guide.pdf" in doc package shows how to treat with eMMC configuration.

Also, MFG may be used to deploy the eMMC image, in particular - in "ucl2.xml" file - we can see,

that eMMC configuration of the MCIMX6Q-SDB uses SD images. Special eMMC images are
provided for i.MX6 SX and UL. 

Have a great day,

Yuri

Yuri,

Thanks for the quick reply. So, I see in the "andriod_M6.0.1_2.1.0_image_6dqpsabred" directory the "eMMC" directory and I am not sure which boot image to use for my board -- what is the difference between the "boot-imx6q.img" and the "boot-imx6q-ldo.img?"

Also I find the instructions in "i.MX_Linux_User's_Guide.pdf" very cryptic. Tomorrow I will be trying the MFG and will look at the "ucl2.xml."

But can you elaborate on your sentences: "

Also, MFG may be used to deploy the eMMC image, in particular - in "ucl2.xml" file - we can see, that eMMC configuration of the MCIMX6Q-SDB uses SD images. Special eMMC images are

provided for i.MX6 SX and UL. "

To me what you are saying is this -- to get the eMMC u-boot image to the eMMC chip I will use the SD image to boot with the MfgTool V2 on WIndows machine, but what I don't get is "Special eMMC images are provided for i.MX6 SX and UL." Are those the images I got from the .tar.gz?

Thanks.

Janet

Hello,

 yes, You are right : 

a) "to get the eMMC u-boot image to the eMMC chip I will use the SD image"

b) "Special eMMC images are provided for i.MX6 SX and UL".

I used "L4.1.15_2.0.0-ga_images_MX6QDLSOLO.tar.gz".

and 

"L4.1.15_2.0.0-ga_mfg-tools.tar.gz"

Regards,

Yuri.
