Dear team,


I would like to ask about the meaning of parameters used in IVT and Boot Data structure of i.MX6SL boot image.


My customer is developing their board with i.MX6SoloLite. For i.MX6SL, my customer believes that the value of ‘header’ should be 0xD100 2040h.

Is it true?


As for the value of ‘entry', which of the address on OCRAM or on Boot-Device does the value specify?


As for ‘start’ in Boot Data structure,

Does the value specify the address in Boot Device relative to its Boot device base?

If so, the ‘start’ contains the value of zero always.



According to the Figure-4 ‘Typical memory layout of an Unsigned Image’ in AN4581 Rev.0, the ‘lenth’ seems to be the length from the top to the end of Image Data.

Not only the length of Image Data.

Is it true?


In my customer’s use-case, they will not use secure-boot.

They thinks all of ‘self’, ‘plugin flag’ and ‘csf’ can be value of zero.
