i.MX28 SSP_SCK Polarity issue: Provided patch not working

Hi, I'm in trouble with the "boot from sd" issue.

I have a board that boot from ssp0 sd card. Fortunately I've a eeprom in my pcb.

I've programmed the eeprom with the freescale provided patch:

Patch for the SDK 2010.12 to fix the incorrect polarity when boot mode is set as boot from SD/eMMC on SSP0/1.


but the boot still fail when try to mount root fs.


No filesystem could mount root, tried:  ext3 ext2 vfat msdos iso9660 ntfs

Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(1,0)

Obviously the sd and the root fs is ok, I've already done all the hardware controls and I'm sure is all right. I'm sure that the boot is from eeprom, because I've controlled it with an oscilloscope.


I've found only a solution, if I make a reset after the kernel panic, the board reboots itself and the boot process is ok.

Anyone have a solution that works for this incredibly (no fix scheduled) problem?


Thanks to all in advance.
