mfgtool updater_ivt.sb for  iMx28 ( custom ) using Yocto 4.1.xx Kernel + advice

Hi All,

 

I need some advice on flashing my Yocto 4.1 kernel to a custom iMx283 board via mfgtool.

Having obtained the latest mfgtool download my main issue is updater_ivt.sb and/or updater.sb isn't compatible with my new nand. Mfgtool is still stuck in the past using the 2.6.35 kernel and is built fixed nand parameters/type hence updater_ivt.sb/updater.sb fails with my new nand around the ubi writing stage.

 

What I need is some advice on how to get around this initial issue and program my custom board using mfgtool ( if an alternative usb / manufacturing /programming tool is available please let me know ). 

 

So:

1) Can a updater*.sb binary be built or cobbled together based on  4.1.xx Yocto for MfgTool? Note: u-boot-imx-mfgtoo andfsl-image-mfgtool-initramfs are both unavailable for the iMx28.

2) Mfgtools *sb appears to be built from a 2.6 kernel LTIB, Is there an 4.1.xx Linux build for LTIB so I could generate the MfgTools from that? 

 

Thanks.
