Hi All,


I have a question about image configuration for MCIMX53-START-R.


I've been working Android with MCIMX53-START, and I'm now trying to work it on MCIMX53-START-R, but the Android system doesn't start running.

Firstly I've just tried to use the Android microSD with MCIMX53-START-R, but there is no console log omitted and even u-boot doesn't run. On the other hand, I also tried use the Ubuntu microSD packed in MCIMX53-START-R with MCIMX53-START, and the system can weirdly successfully boot up.


I've anyway copied MBR and u-boot of the Ubuntu microSD to the Android's microSD, and u-boot could barely run. Then I arranged the partitions of the microSD with fdisk as the original Android's one was cofigured. (6 partitions in total) However, when QSB is turned on, kernel doesn't boot up, omitting the following log.


MMC read: dev # 0, block # 2048, count 6144 ... 6144 blocks read: OK
## Booting kernel from Legacy Image at 70800000 ...

Does anyone know how to configure the Android image for MCIMX53-START-R?
