Hi folks,

I have to update  an old u-boot version to 2013.4 (because of device tree support for linux 3.16.7) at embest MarSboard, i.MX6 DL. Flashing tool is MfGTool.


old U-boot: 174 KB

new U-boot: 271 KB


Currently I have faced following issue during writing u-boot to SPI-NOR flash:


Sent command:

<CMD type="push" body="$ dd if=$FILE of=/dev/mtd0 bs=512">write Emb u-boot loader to SPI-NOR</CMD>



dd: writing '/dev/mtd0': No space left on device

257+0 records in

256+0 records out

262144 bytes (256.0KB) copied, 8.489485 seconds, 30.2KB/s


I wonder whether I have to change the parameter bs ...or to re-configure u-boot?


I would be grateful for any hints
