imx53 MFGtool error when using plugin-based U-Boot

Question asked by Bruno De Paoli on Dec 4, 2017
Latest reply on Dec 17, 2017 by jimmychan

We have an iMX53-based platform that uses the DCD approach in U-Boot to perform device configuring both for the production and manufacturing versions of U-Boot and we have been successfully using the Freescale MFGTool (using the manufacturing version of U-Boot) to program the boards.

 

We have now changed to use the plugin approach to configure the device for both production and manufacturing versions of U-Boot. The production U-Boot works and the board boots correctly. However the MFGTool fails straightway when attempting to program the board using the new plugin-based U-boot approach.

 

Does anyone know of any issues relating to the use the MFGTool when using the iMX53 plugin approach?

Does the xml file differ between the DCD and plugin approaches - we use the same xml file for both. I've attached a copy of the xml file.

 

The MfgTool version is V1.6.2.055.

 

Thanks

Bruno
