MIMXRT1050-EVK MfgTool and QSPI Flash

Hello I am using MCUXpresso IDE, version v10.1.0 [Build 589] [2017-11-14] with an RT1050 SDK, version  2.3.0 (2017-11-16).  I have found that I can successfully take an MIMXRT1050-EVK modified for QSPI operation and program it with one of the supplied example_images files in the Flashloader_RT1050_1.0 package, i.e. led_demo_evk_flexspi_nor_0x60002000.srec.  I have, however, been unsuccessful in programming my own image into QSPI so it seems there's something special about the way they were constructed and I have some questions:

 

How were these files generated? i.e.

    led_demo_evk_flexspi_nor_0x60002000.srec

    led_demo_evk_flexspi_nor_0x60002000.elf

(I don't mean explain s-records or elf files, I'm wondering if there was something special about their generation.)

 

Are the projects that generated these images available for MCUXpresso or IAR?

Are they based on or similar to the XIP example provided in the SDK?  I doubt it given the memory offset and structure of the s-records.

 

Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks
