i.MX6 with OpenOCD - Error when performing DDR initialization commands

Question asked by Tord Andersson on Jun 16, 2015

In order to load and debug U-Boot on a Nitrogen Max 4G board I would like to perform initial setup as done by the IVT header appended to U-Boot. I have extracted the content of the cfg files and created an OpenOCD configuration with ddr initialization. Unfortunately, as soon as commands are sent through the command register I get a timeout.

The same behaviour has been observed with both Flyswatter and JLink interfaces. The initialization works OK when booting from SPI-NOR flash.

I have tried to adjust timing, but have not been able to pass this step. Has anyone experienced similar problems? Any workarounds?

 

Here is the debug output from OpenOCD:

And here is the offending command:

---

# Config commands to DDR

mww phys 0x021b001c 0x04088032

The origin of the OpenOCD config file comes from the Sabre SD config in this article: http://www.edlangley.co.uk/blog/2014/06/rescuing-bricked-secure-mode-i.mx6/
