Hi,
I can program u-boot.bin to eMMC using "uuu" on my iMX8QM MEK. Then boot my test image via tftpboot/bootm commands.

=> tftpboot 0xf0000000 App.bin
Using ethernet@5b040000 device
TFTP from server 192.168.86.43; our IP address is 192.168.86.44 Filename 'App.bin'.

I'd like to use u-boot to program the test image (A53 bare metal)  into eMMC at a given location 0xf0000000. Thanks to rweiss for sharing this option in uboot.

Can someone please share what u-boot instructions are needed to program App.bin to eMMC and load it to RAM at address 0xf0000000 ? Example, mmc write

I am trying to use "bootm 0xf0000000" to boot this eMMC image.

Thanks in advance.

Ravi

I am able to program eMMC using the "emmc read/write/erase" commands. The issue I ran into was picking the right block size (512). That is needed otherwise I saw CRC errors. I will mark this thread closed. Thanks.
