iMX6 sabre automotive board booting default Linux image

Hi guys,


I have an sabre automative CPU Card in front of me, which I want to boot.

My steps:

- downloading this file: L4.9.11_1.0.0-ga_images_MX6QPDLSOLOX.tar.gz

- extracting and "dd"ing this file to the sdcard: fsl-image-validation-imx-x11-imx6qpdlsolox.sdcard

(I have a second board, which boots until UBoot entry and hangs at kernel, which is for my first steps fine and validates that the SD Card is fine)

- If I insert the SD-Card to the automotive board, I do not see any output on the serial console (I plugged a Serial-9DB cable)

my configuration:

S2 1-4 is 0010

S1 (1-10) is 01001 000...

SW3 00

S3 1-4 0011


J5 2-3

J4 1-2

J3 1-2


I have a powerplug with 5V and 2 Ampere.

If I plug the cable in I get the some normal creepy Ascii Symbols, which show that the board is powered. But at booting or misconfiguration of the serial interface, I would get more symbols. (I use minicom with baudrate 115200, the rest default)


Who can tell me, how I can debug it or which mistakes I made?


Thanks in advance
