U-boot - Boot time optimization on imx8qm

Question asked by Amit Kulkarni on Apr 29, 2020
Latest reply on Apr 30, 2020 by Amit Kulkarni

We are working on imx8qm running with Android 9 automotive. We tried to optimize u-boot but it still takes ~2.59 sec to start the kernel. We have already removed unnecessary drivers and Logs. After looking more closely we see that there are some logs coming from tee.bin which is sitting inside /vendor/nxp-opensource/imx-mkimage. Can we remove these logs ? How can we further optimize u-boot ?

 

Here are the current logs from u-boot with timestamp:
