Hi all,
>>     I am using imx6ull nxp board. In the reference board 32MB(256Mb) QSPI nor flash is used. Is it possible boot from QSPI by flashing complete u-boot,kernel, dtb and   
        rootfs to QSPI nor flash?
>>  I have tried flashing using mfg tool(4.9.11), but I am able to flash only U-boot(see below logs).

>> Is mfg tool(4.9.11) supports to flash complete OS(u-boot,kernel, dtb and rootfs) to QSPI nor flash?


 >> OR We need to use QSPI nor flash only for u-boot? The kernel, dtb rootfs should be loaded to other boot device?


Eagerly waiting for response. Please help if someone already worked on it.


Thanks in advance
