Hi all

 

I feel like such a noob asking this question but I have been stuck since I received the imx6qp sabre sdb board.


Scenario : I have built the android images using android users guide. I have the uboot, kernel, system and recovery images ready to flash the emmc. I received the board yesterday. And booted the board from the sd card that was given. I can go into the uboot terminal and kernel terminal of the linux thats on the already provided sd card. Now my confusion is how to flash my images on to the emmc of the board. Im using ubuntu on my host machine so i prefer dd utility than mfgtool.

Now I have connected the board to my host machine with debug usb port and the otg usb port. I can see the debug messages and boot sequence and type in the terminals using minicom utility on my host machine. But I dont understand how I can flash the emmc of the board with the images on my host machine. Connecting the otg port the board doesnt showup in the /dev/ in my host machine either.
