In i.mx6. u-boot.imx is flashed in SPI NOR Flash. My question is: Does the BootROM code start the uboot as XIP or does the BootROM code copy the uboot from SPI NOR Flash to RAM and start it. If copy to RAM then is it IRAM or DRAM?

Hi, Im using i.mx6 based board. u-boot.imx is flashed in SPI NOR Flash. (and Uboot loads the uImage from /boot of the filesystem in the eMMC.). My question is: Does the BootROM code start the uboot as XIP or does the BootROM code copy the uboot from SPI NOR Flash to RAM and start it. If copy to RAM then is it IRAM or DRAM? Im using an iwave rainbow q7 board.
