iMX6 Boot type change using Software Reset

We are using iMX6 Dual Lite on our board. For the boot we have 2 options, both are working fine:

1) SD card boot.

2) NOR Flash boot.


There is a Push-button connected to BOOT_CFG1[6] which selects between SD Card boot or NOR Flash Boot and we can select the between the 2 boot options no problem. But we have to do a Power cycle to select between the 2 boot options. We want to have a Software Reset, not a Power cycle to change the boot type.  


We tried Watch Dog reset, both Cold & Warm reset but couldn't make the boot type selection change. We always have to do a Power cycle to change the boot type.


Is there a Software controlled Reset to change the iMX6 boot type?
