Hi all,


we recently decided to update our uboot for a custom board based on i.MX6 from 2015.04 to 2017.03. I am now a bit confused, mostly because I am not able to find the documentation. For example, the way of configuring uboot has changed, I see that what used to be before in include config file (from include/configs) is now moved to defconfig file (in configs folder). Having this in mind I have the following questions:

1. Since my board is based on Sabre Auto, if I take configuration of Sabre Auto as a starting point in 2017.03, how should I chage it and adopt it for my board? Should I use menuconfig or not? Or should I change .h files directly?

2. I read that uboot now suports device tree, has a driver model, and is able to configure hardware based on the device tree configuration. Do you recommend using this and how can I simply disable this feature. When I set CONFIG_OF_CONTROL=n I cant compile any more due to the errors.

3. Is it recommended to have a reduced device tree in order to configure only devices which are needed in uboot?


Thank you very much
