Hi guys,


I am trying to update the Linux version I had on a imx6-q SABRE-SD board. I didn't install the previous version and I never installed a Linux this way in my life, i.e. I am totally new with this. Anyway I followed a Guide to Flash a SD card with the right Linux version I wanted (L3.0.35-4.1.0) and I managed to launch MFG Tools the right way I think but it bugged at the step "Formatting rootfs partition".


I saw that it could be a lack of space when the partitioning have been done just before. I looked up this info and noticed that the partitioning was building on my SD card was only 80MB while the oneiric file containing the Linux was almost 800 MB. I edited the right file ( to choose 800MB.

Here is the XML part showing the partitioning / formatting ... :


<CMD state="Updater" type="push" body="send" file="">Sending partition shell</CMD>
<CMD state="Updater" type="push" body="$ tar xf $FILE "> Partitioning...</CMD>
<CMD state="Updater" type="push" body="$ sh /dev/mmcblk1"> Partitioning...</CMD>

    <CMD state="Updater" type="push" body="$ mkfs.ext3 -j /dev/mmcblk1p1">Formatting rootfs partition</CMD>
    <CMD state="Updater" type="push" body="$ mkdir -p /mnt/mmcblk1p1"/>
    <CMD state="Updater" type="push" body="$ mount -t ext3 /dev/mmcblk1p1 /mnt/mmcblk1p1"/>
    <CMD state="Updater" type="push" body="pipe tar --numeric-owner -zxv -C /mnt/mmcblk1p1" file="files/oneiric.tgz">Sending and writting rootfs</CMD>
    <CMD state="Updater" type="push" body="frf">Finishing rootfs write</CMD>
    <CMD state="Updater" type="push" body="$ umount /mnt/mmcblk1p1">Unmounting rootfs partition</CMD>
    <CMD state="Updater" type="push" body="$ echo Update Complete!">Done</CMD>


I hope some of you have info about that.
