please don't flame me, I think I must be missing the forest for the trees, but could not find any thread for this yet.
I am trying to get a very easy set-up for the MX53QSB or similar platform to allow others starting to play with it without having to fiddle around with LTIB. So I thought, just using a binary image of Ubuntu or Android would be the way to go - but I can't get any of them to run, let alone run stable.
- Ubuntu lucid supplied with MX53QSB (or maybe Rita board?): it runs, but is unstable in terms of video player and display output (HDMI - as soon as I start any application, the screen starts to flicker and/or turns black completely)
- Ubuntu from Freescale web site (MCIM535-START-UBUNTU-1109-Demo-Image): no HDMI output
- Ubuntu precise pangolin (link posted some time ago here on the board, but I don't find it right now): takes ages to boot, sometimes does not boot at all, crashes frequently, could not yet try video playback
- Android from Freescale web site (imx-android-r10.4_bundle_BSP): does not boot correctly, U-Boot can not communicate via I2C - maybe not suitable for QSB at all?
- Android from Adeneo (FSL-iMX53-QSB-DROID_adeneo_android_iMX53_r42): starts, seems stable (reproducible startup), but the launcher crashes ("com.android.launcher terminated unexpectedly" or something)
Did I try the wrong images? Is there any other version of files I should try? I cannot imagine I am the only one having such problems or wanting to use binary images? I tried two different boards, and both of them run fine with the minimal root fs from Freescale or my own images produced with LTIB, so I think I can rule out hardware problems.
Any success stories are welcome! :-)
