Hello Experts.

My problem seems to have already been addressed by somoene else (LS1043ARDB SDK 2.0 boot without using rootfs in the kernel.itb? ) but I think we have not a precise response.

1) Goal: boot with u-boot on NOR flash (vBank 4) and rootfs(+ kernel) on SD card.

2) Attempts: I set the SD card up following the SDK 2.0 release note, and modified bootargs and bootcmd accordingly.


=> printenv
bootargs=root=/dev/mmcblk0p1 rw rootdelay=5 earlycon=uart8250,0x21c0500,115200 console=ttyS0,115200
bootcmd=ext2load mmc 0 a0000000 uImage && bootm a0000000



I also followed the previously mentionned thread to build "uImage"  (I removed ramdisk = "ramdisk@1" in kernel.its, but keept fdt = "fdt@1" before rebuilding), but the boot hanged.

Does somebody know how to proceed? Thanks in advance.
