[iMX8MPlus] [u-Boot] Flash issue Serial Downloader mode

Dear All,

On our custom board, the USB2 is designed to be OTG (Serial Downloader) instead of HOST as in the case of EVK. And the USB1 which is OTG in the EVK is dropped from our custom design.

The Serial Downloader mode works during the DDR4 calibration and stress test. However, I struggled with the flashing using uuu tool :

$ sudo uuu -v -b sd ./imx-boot-imx8mp-ddr4-evk-sd.bin-flash_ddr4_evk
uuu (Universal Update Utility) for nxp imx chips -- libuuu_1.4.138-0-g051a8fe

I would like to know if any adaptation needed for u-Boot in terms of USB modification, please ?

Thanks in advance and best regards,
Khang

Hello,

The error the tool shows is that it did not find or is not able to open the uboot file you have specified, please check that the name is correct or it is in the correct directory.

Regarding changes to uboot, yes you'll need to change uboot for your custom design since this will lead to errors later.

Best regards,
Aldo.

Hi @AldoG ,

The error the tool shows is that it did not find or is not able to open the uboot file you have specified, please check that the name is correct or it is in the correct directory.

The file is right there in the working directory :

$ ls -l
total 4889500
-rw-r--r-- 1 developer developer 2269136 Jan 20 19:00 imx-boot-imx8mp-ddr4-evk-sd.bin-flash_ddr4_evk

And I tried with both following commands :

$ sudo uuu -v -b sd ./imx-boot-imx8mp-ddr4-evk-sd.bin-flash_ddr4_evk
$ sudo uuu -v -b sd imx-boot-imx8mp-ddr4-evk-sd.bin-flash_ddr4_evk

 

Regarding changes to uboot, yes you'll need to change uboot for your custom design since this will lead to errors later.

For USB adaptation, do you think that without it could I still do the flashing? 

Anyway, I also did the adaptation as below but the flashing issue is still there:

a. Disable USB1, switch USB2 from HOST to OTG :

Hi @AldoG ,

I have some update :

About initial error of uuu:

 

Error: fail open file: >./imx-boot-imx8mp-ddr4-evk-sd.bin-flash_ddr4_evk

 

It turned out the it was the issue of uuu installed by snap under Ubuntu. I now use the release binary from  https://github.com/NXPmicro/mfgtools and there's some progress.

Without the USB adaptation in previous comment, the flashing of u-boot could reach 37%  and ended with following error (tested with different versions of uuu : ibuuu_1.4.193-0-ge56424c and ibuuu_1.4.243-0-ged48c51) :

 

Wait for Known USB Device Appear...
New USB Device Attached at 1:12
1:12>Start Cmd:SDPS: boot -f imx-boot-imx8mp-ddr4-evk-sd.bin-flash_ddr4_evk
37%1:12>Fail HID(W):LIBUSB_ERROR_TIMEOUT(1.873s)

 

In the board debug console:

 

Normal Boot
WDT:   Not found!
Trying to boot from BOOTROM
Can't found uboot image in 640K range 
SPL: failed to boot from all boot devices
### ERROR ### Please RESET the board ###

 

Do you think that the above error Can't found uboot image in 640K range  is compatible with my other issue that ATF (BL31) not found when flashing the SD card using dd ?

Thanks and best regards,
Khang.

Hello,

This could be caused by the different error you are seeing in your other post, regarding changes to uboot I would suggest to follow this as reference:

Hi @AldoG ,

I did apply the patches you shared, the only difference is configs/imx8mp_ddr4_evk_defconfig instead of configs/imx8mp_evk_defconfig.

But the error Can't found uboot image in 640K range  with 37% of flashing progress still there.

Best Regards,
Khang
