Booting from On-Chip ROM (eSDHC or eSPI)
boot_format is a tool to write SD bootable images to a filesystem and build
SD/SPI images to a binary file for writing later.
When booting from an SD card/MMC, boot_format puts the configuration file and
the RAM-based U-Boot image on the card.
When booting from an EEPROM, boot_format generates a binary image that is used
to boot from this EEPROM.
Where to get boot_format:
you can browse it online at:
Run the following to build this project
$ make
boot_format runs under a regular Linux machine and requires a super user mode
to run. Execute boot_format as follows.
For building SD images by writing directly to a file system on SD media:
$ boot_format $config u-boot.bin -sd $device
Where $config is the included config.dat file for your platform and $device
is the target block device for the SD media on your computer.
For build binary images directly a local file:
$ boot_format $config u-boot.bin -spi $file
Where $file is the target file. Also keep in mind the u-boot.bin file needs
to be the u-boot built for your particular platform and target media.
Example: To generate a u-boot.bin for a P1022DS booting from SD, run the
following in the u-boot repository:
$ make P1022DS_SDCARD
Configuration Files
Below are the configuration files to be used with a particular platform. Keep
in mind that some of these config files are tied to the platforms DDR speed.
Please see the SoC reference manual for more documentation.
