How to Update U-Boot on Warp board
Required software on the host PC:
- imx_usb_loader:
- dfu-util:
Build U-Boot for Warp:
$ make mrproper
$ make warp_config
$ make
This will generate the U-Boot binary called u-boot.imx.
Put warp board in USB download mode
Connect a USB to serial adapter between the host PC and warp
Connect a USB cable between the OTG warp port and the host PC
Open a terminal program such as minicom
Copy u-boot.imx to the imx_usb_loader folder.
Load u-boot.imx via USB:
$ sudo ./imx_usb u-boot.imx
Then U-Boot should start and its messages will appear in the console program.
Use the default environment variables:
=> env default -f -a
=> saveenv
Run the DFU command:
=> dfu 0 mmc 0
Transfer u-boot.imx that will be flashed into the eMMC:
$ sudo dfu-util -D u-boot.imx -a boot
Then on the U-Boot prompt the following message should be seen after a
successful upgrade:
Ctrl+C to exit ...
Remove power from the warp board.
Put warp board into normal boot mode
Power up the board and the new updated U-Boot should boot from eMMC
